2017 Skoda Superb 162TSI review

We took delivery of our MY17 Skoda Superb 162TSI wagon with optioned Tech Pack about six weeks ago. Until this point we have only ever owned Toyota Corollas, so the step up in class was immediate and apparent. I should add, I’m not a car enthusiast by any means, and have previously only viewed cars as a necessity for getting from A to B (hence the Corollas), so please excuse any technical inaccuracies in this review...

2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCT review

Alfa Romeo want the people driving their cars to be part of the driving experience – not distance them from it. I get that car companies may be only responding to progress and customer demand, but there is nothing like really 'driving' a car. I like to know that the engine is there when you stick the boot in. My car has the TCT (in Alfa speak, twin clutch transmission)...

2012 Volkswagen Polo GTi Review

After owning a Ford Falcon XR6 for over three years, I thought it was time for a change. I decided to go for a 2012 Volkswagen Polo GTI with a seven-speed DSG, and what a change it was. Everything about the Polo, from the engine note to the interior, screams refinement. It has a little 1.4-litre four-cylinder unit that pumps out 132kW of power and 250Nm of torque...

2000 Volvo S40 2.0 SE Review

It’s mid-January, a Monday morning, 04:30am. I’m on my way to work and taking the back route – a series of sweeping corners, the odd hairpin and the odd wallaby on what can only be described as a goat track. The engine is warm, as is the air for this time of morning. Fourth gear. I stab the throttle and shift back to third. Repeat to find second...

2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Review

My previous car ownership consisted of mainly Japanese performance vehicles - WRX; Evo; s2000; Civic B Series. So, as I got older I wanted something nicer, something less Spartan. I then spent a few years in a Volkswagen Golf GTi MK6. Nicely built car but had some reliability issues. But that's another story. So when it came time to look for a new car, I decided on a C63 estate...

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX (AWD) review

If your the kinda guy who's always late to your great-grandparents' funeral (more than likely caused by your significant other) attempting to sneak in under the radar, unfortunately the 2006 Hawkeye WRX isn't for you, sorry. No this car is defiantly not a sleeper, that's for sure...

2008 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

PHWOAR! A term used to express desire, but also a term somehow apt (and not for the same reason) for describing the feeling I get every time I’m behind the wheel of my Aussie-made FG XR6 Turbo sedan. Starting with the exterior, Ford finally got this right with the FG series. There are curves and angles in all the right places that give a properly sporty look without overdoing it...

2010 Volkswagen Tiguan 125TSI review

When the Volkswagen Tiguan went on sale in Australia back in 2008, it seemed to take the market by force, at least from where I was sitting. No longer were the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV-4 and the Land Rover Freelander kings of the medium SUV world...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x4) review

This is an absolutely awesome truck! The ride quality for a ute is amazing. You just gotta love coil spring suspension! It looks the part too. Mine is black, not everyone's choice I guess, but the body shape is accentuated by the dark colour and looks kind of 'Gansta' with the dark tinted windows...

2016 Skoda Fabia 66TSI review

While the majority of others in the comments section of reviews seem to dislike this little champion, I have to say I couldn't disagree more. Looks, I suppose, are in the eye of the beholder, but I find the Fabia modern looking and sleek, although perhaps a bit narrow from the front view, but I can live with that. The practicality of the car never gets old...

2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium review

We bought our Outback at end of 2015, and our first main concern was seat height as we are both elderly. We previously owned a Statesman and also a small Mazda 2 hatch and while they were good for a long time, we found them hard to get in and out of. The Subaru Outback completely ticks that box as we find it exactly the right height...

2015 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

Finished in Volkswagen Pacific Blue Metallic paint matches the BlueMotion logo attached to the bottom of the TSI Badging. The car looks striking with the blue colour making everything looking proportional with the exception of the C-Pillar. The interior being typical Volkswagen adorned with quality touches and very thoughtful storage spaces...

2017 Renault Koleos Intens (4x4) Review

I have owned two previous Koleos's. I picked up my new Intens two weeks ago, which seems to be light years ahead of the old model in terms of space, finish and technology. I looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe and Tuscon, the Kia Sportage, Isuzu, VW Tiguan and Toyota RAV4. Nothing came close in terms of features for the price...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) Review

Bought a used 2009 X-Trail and am glad that I chose it over the Honda CRV. Though CRV is better overall package, it lacks any off road capability of the X-Trail (We visit sandy beaches from time to time). My car with the 2.5L petrol engine with auto transmission has given me an average of 12L/100km around the city and 10L/100km on the highway...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x2) Review

I knew a lot about the CX-5 from reading many reviews and articles about about them on CarAdvice.com and other websites. I test drove a few cars before picking this one and do not regret it. We decided on the Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport  4X2, which cost around $34,000. I like the CX-5’s exterior design.  It has a really stylish body compared to its competitors in the category...
