2016 Ford Focus RS Review: Track Test

The 2016 Ford Focus RS is an amazing road car, as we discovered here. But how does it go on a proper racetrack? To find out, Ford brought us over to Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. This track is home to MotoGP and, in the past, DTM, World Touring Cars and even GT cars. It’s a relatively tight track with plenty of technical corners, well suited to the grippy characteristics of the Focus RS...

Ford Everest v Holden Sportwagon: 2016 Australia Day Special

January 26 is one of our great nation's most contentious days of the year – Australia Day. Now being the simple folk we are at CarAdvice, we'll leave debate about this country's origins to others, and instead focus on enjoying this big island we all live on. Plus, we can use the day as an excuse to have some fun in cars...

The Ford Focus RS is too cheap

Here are some interesting facts: the German built Ford Focus RS costs just over €40,000 in Europe, £29,990 in the UK and about US$37,000 in the United States. Convert that at today’s (fast-sinking) Australian dollar exchange rate and that’s roughly $62,000, $61,000 and $53,000 respectively. How much do we pay for the car locally? $50,990...

Ford Everest Titanium v Land Rover Discovery SDV6 SE: Comparison Review

Bracket creep. It’s a term used by finance types to signify the often unintentional shift from one tax bracket to another. In the context of cars, the meaning is quite similar.

Ford Mustang: Australian success will factor into future development

According to the engineer in charge of development for the new 2016 Ford Mustang, the rabid demand for the vehicle in Australia has been noticed at Ford HQ in the states and will be taken into account when any future RHD development is entered into. It means Australia will potentially have access to more potent performance variants of the Mustang when they are released in the States...

2017 Lincoln Continental revealed in Detroit

“Don’t call it a comeback,” Ford might say of its new 2017 Lincoln Continental, but there can be little doubt the carmaker’s luxury arm needs to make one.

Ford Everest Titanium v Toyota Prado VX: Comparison Review

Toyota Prado — it’s a name synonymous with off-roading and, evidently, astronomical sales. Over 16,000 in 2014 to be exact, for a market share of a little over 15 per cent. So, when Ford Australia announced that the Ranger-based Ford Everest would take on the Prado both in terms of price and off-road ability, we packed our camping gear and hit the bush for some proper off-road driving...

Blue Booming, Red Rising: Car Colour Trends of 2015/16

One of the most deeply personal aspects of buying a new car is choosing the colour. It's a reflection of who we are, and the considerations vary greatly from person to person. Be it the desire to make a fashion statement, an attempt to preserve re-sale value or even choosing which colours are least likely to be targeted by thieves, there's a lot to consider...
