On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric look at the new BMW 3 Series, ANCAP goes hard at the Kia Cerato, and the boys check out a star-spangled dual-cab from Ram.


First up, BMW has revealed pricing and spec information for the hotly-anticipated new 3 Series. With a new look, new technology, and a fancy suspension system, it's coming straight for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

ANCAP has handed Kia a split four- and five-star safety rating across the 2019 Cerato range. Top-spec cars have been handed the best rating possible, with lower-spec cars have four because of their less-sophisticated AEB.

Finally, there's a hot new Subaru WRX STI, but it's not bound for Australia. With 254kW on tap, it's for the American market, and the American market only.

Paul and Trent put the Renault Megane RS, Hyundai i30 N and Volkswagen Golf GTI head-to-head for a sub-$50k hot hatch comparison.

They also decide to go hard or go home, putting the Ram 1500 through its paces in the ultimate heavy-duty tow-test.

How close to the sun can you fly with performance upgrades... What will void your manufacturer's warranty?
