2015 Ford Fiesta ST Review: Sandown Raceway weekender

Dave returns to Sandown Raceway for another weekend warrior track test, but this time in the most affordable car yet...

That time I built the Mad Max Interceptor

Mad Max: Fury Road is seeing tremendous success at box offices around the world. And one particular element has hugely excited fans of the franchise - the return of the XB. I would have been about 10 when I first saw Mad Max. It was the cinematic choice of an older brother of a school friend, the grainy VHS providing both fear and excitement in spades...

Ford Transit Custom v Renault Trafic: Medium van comparison

It’s the battle of the European mid-sized vans – both are white, both are diesel, both are manual and both are just under $40,000. They are the all-new Renault Trafic and the Ford Transit Custom, the latter of which won our mid-sized van comparison test in 2014. The old Trafic was impressive in that test, and ranked second even though that model was considerably more, shall we say, vintage than its rivals...

Ford Fiesta ST v Volkswagen Polo GTI : Comparison Review

Rarely has Volkswagen’s iconic GTI badge been so humbled as it was in November 2013 when we last put the go-fast Polo in the ring with the Ford Fiesta ST. The big-name fighter with all the pomp and pedigree was made to look overpriced, under-equipped and lacking fun factor compared with the featherweight upstart that so resoundingly reminded us that simplicity and greatness are not mutually exclusive...

Ford Focus ST v Holden Astra VXR: Comparison Review

Ford versus Holden, the definitive Australian automotive rivalry, seen here but not as we know it. There's not a V8 engine, a sedan body or a rear-wheel-drive configuration in sight. Instead, we have a pair of hot hatches, both (re)launched inside the past few months, that go about doing broadly the same thing as each other in notably different ways...

2015 Ford Falcon XR8 Review

I purchased my auto XR8 in May 2015 after waiting a patient 6 months for it. It was worth the wait. This car is amazingly quick and advances in fuel economy means it uses about the same as my 4 cylinder TN Magna Elite did all those years ago (when cruising). Put the foot down and it uses the juice big time, but I didn't buy it for economy...

2013 Ford Fiesta St Review

The Ford Fiesta ST Ecoboost is a great Econo-Performance car. Fuel consumption is fantastic even while hitting the right pedal hard. Handling is great through the tight bends of any country road. The ST will sit happily at 110 in 6th gear on the freeway, tackling even the biggest of hills with ease in top gear with its abundance of torque on tap that kicks in around 2000 rpm's...

2012 Ford Mondeo Titanium TdCi Review

As someone who does a lot of interstate driving, when looking for a car I wanted something economical, safe and spacious with enough boot space for luggage. I also wanted a car that was good around town too, as I have a 40 minute commute in and out of town on a daily basis. Taking all this into consideration, I found the Ford Mondeo Titanium TDCi...
