2015 Suzuki Kizashi Sport Touring review

I've always lusted after the Kizashi ever since it was launched. But, the new car price was out of my reach at the time. Finally, I've been able to buy a recent model from a dealer a few weeks ago and so far I'm delighted. My previous car was a 2010 turbo-diesel sedan with a normal six-speed automatic so it's taking me a little while to adjust to the different driving dynamics...

2016 Audi S1 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro review

I have owned my Audi S1 Sportback for two years. At the time of purchase, its natural competitor set included the Subaru WRX, Volkswagen Golf GTI, Volkswagen Polo GTI,  Ford Fiesta ST and the Renault twins, Clio RS and Megane RS. The Audi S1 comes equipped with the 2.0L EA888 Gen 3 with the Golf GTI turbo. From a reliability standpoint at the time, the Audi S1 was very appealing...

2017 Suzuki Vitara RT-S review

I traded my 2016 Toyota Corolla for this 2017 Suzuki Vitara RT-S for two reasons: One, I took the Vitara for a test drive and ; Two, the all-round vision and lack of blind spots. In city driving, you can see over nearly any other car, and in the country this thing just rolls along the road in a way that the never Corolla did...

2013 HSV GTS review

So, I have just sold not only my first ever HSV, but also the first ever Holden I have ever owned. I have never written a review about a vehicle before, but for some reason I feel compelled to do so about my experiences with the HSV GTS. My car before the GTS was a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and it was fantastic...

2014 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

This car offers a great blend of performance and practically. I purchased this car in 2014 and it's done 35,000km. I cross-shopped it against the Renault Megane GT 220 at the time. In my opinion, the Octavia's quality was better, and the ride reached a much better compromise between sport, and comfort...

2002 Mini Cooper S review

I knew it was love when I laid eyes on 'Rori' in Barwon Heads on a summer day in 2010. I've had a penchant for Minis since attending a dealer launch in 2001. Rori was in the quintessential spec that matched the poster on my bedroom wall. And Indy Blue Cooper with Chilli pack, with white roof, mirror caps and wheels...

2007 Volvo S80 V8 AWD review

One day, while driving past my local Volvo dealer (in my brother's long-term-loan V70), I spotted a black sedan in the forecourt. “That's an S80, you don't see many of them,” and “that's pretty cheap ($25K)," I thought to myself. The next time I went to the dealer for a service, I had a good look at the black sedan...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander R-Series (AWD) review

In short, this is a fantastic car. We've only had it one week, but we absolutely love it. We did consider a Mazda CX-5 but it would have been over $8000 more than the Tucson while also lacking some of the features. And a small sunroof as opposed to the moonroof in the Tucson and no powered tailgate. The diesel engine is powerful and the styling and look of the car is great...

2001 Hyundai Accent GL review

Back in the mid-noughties, after a slew of interesting but expensive daily drivers, I needed something cheap and dependable to get through a lean patch. At the price point there wasn't much available, and so this little blue cockroach became mine. What power it had was derived through a Mitsubishi sourced 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual gearbox...

2013 Toyota 86 GTS review

I purchased this car brand-new in 2013 after waiting nearly 12 months. It's funny in hindsight to think that people were speculating about 18 month waiting lists and paying premiums over RRP for one these – such was the hype! I had the reviews to keep me occupied while I waited, and fortunately they were very accurate for the most part...

2011 Mitsubishi Pajero GLX LWB (4x4) Review

I never would have considered a Mitsubishi Pajero but was told that was to be my company car, so I had no choice. I have had Colorados, Toyotas and Fords in recent years but my initial apprehension at having a Pajero disappeared after the first week. I was stunned...

2005 Mazda 3 Neo review

The car wasn't made to break any sort of land speed records and with that in mind, the little 2L LF-DE engine was just what it needed. Making 104Kw at 6500rpm it wasn't the fastest car around. But for the punch you got, the fuel economy wasn't too bad either. Using 8.5L/100km in the manual and around 9L/100km in the auto, the Mazda 3 was a nice balance of speed and economy...

2012 BMW 535i GT Review

So, after just over four years of ownership 'we' (well the other half) traded in our BMW 535i GT for a 440i Gran Coupe (yes, I know, first world, white people problems). Other half bought the car before we met, as at the time he had decided he wanted: a hatchback for the flexibility of carrying 'Stuff' a larger car than the 3 series Coupe The 535 (actually built on the 7 series platform) was an ex-company car from Brisbane BMW with about 9000km on it and it was at a knockdown price...

2017 Skoda Superb 206TSI review

Close the door. Foot on the brake. Press the button where the ignition key usually goes. Welcome to Skoda. In this case a Superb wagon with 206TSI engine and AWD. And a huge sunroof. And self steering, stopping, and parking. And 10-colour interior lighting (its a MY17 build). And space, acres of space. And umbrellas, two. And I’ll stop quoting features now...

2014 Mercedes-Benz A250 Sport review

For those of you who may not have read my previous Owner Reviews, my name is Will Varvari and I am 14 years old. I am a massive car aficionado, and absolutely love writing… hence the reason why you see me on CarAdvice doing these reviews and sharing with you my views. My two previous reviews were about BMW X5s (the E70 and the F15)...
