Diesel SUV Comparison : Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Jeep Cherokee v Volkswagen Tiguan

They don’t call Australia the big brown land for nothing. Most of us may live near the blue of the ocean and travel on roads that are black, but there is plenty of brown stuff to be found everywhere else.

2012 Nissan Almera St Review

The Nissan Almera is a great vehicle for a first car buyer or for someone who needs a car mainly for city commuting. The Almera is reasonable on fuel and the steering is light which makes parking a breeze. Bluetooth is also available so that means no more reaching for your phone to pickup a call however from my experience the bluetooth is very basic and it can be difficult to synchronise your contacts over to the car...

2013 Nissan Navara ST-X 550 Review

I bought a Navara ST-X 550 from Nissan brand new. The dual-cab ute definitely is quite a nice unit with plenty of power. It's good on fuel too. I own a caravan and it pulls that well.
