Join Mandy Turner, Mike Costello and Trent Nikolic on location with this view (above) from the Hunter Valley, while our hatchback mega test is underway.

We talk how important the Kia Stinger is for the Korean brand in a special car news report after it received a CarAdvice rating of 9.0 in our latest review. While the Stonic has been leaked online, it looks like Australia won't be getting the compact SUV.

The Honda Accord has been teased ahead of its reveal mid-July and after many concepts over the years, the Volkswagen ID Buzz, or the Electric Kombi, has finally been approved for production.

Also, Trent reviews the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg Adventure,a special edition of the large SUV.

A hint is revealed for Pick the Exhaust for your chance to win a CarAdvice prize pack.

Our Sydney correspondent and former podcast guest, Peter Ronis, meets 14-year old Jack (below) who owns and races his BMW M3. Yes, you read right.

Lastly, go behind-the-scenes of our latest hatchback mega test where Mandy talks to every member of the team involved.
