With 2019 drawing a close, it’s time to look back at a year’s worth of news, reviews, comparisons and videos.
Here are the top 5 most watched videos of the year.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLS review: GLS Premium flagship driven!
We put the top-of-the-line version of Australia’s third best-selling ute to the test and were impressed with its value-for-money, including its impressive array of safety kit.
Best medium family SUV 2019: 10 SUVs, 1 winner!
We wrangled all the heavy-hitters of the most popular segment in Australia – except the Mitsubishi Outlander, which wasn't available – and put them to the test.
None of these 10 SUVs is a bad choice in this viciously competitive segment. Nevertheless, we identified one clear victor: the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
2019 Small Car Comparison
Our small car mega test beat out our medium SUV mega test in hits. That’s in contrast to sales figures, where the medium SUV segment is beating the small car segment. Still, small cars remain the most popular passenger cars on the market.
We tested all the heavy hitters, including the three most popular small cars in Australia: the Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and Hyundai i30.
2020 Kia Seltos review
The small SUV segment is one of the hottest in the Australian market but Kia has so far sat on the sidelines. It competed in this space before with the Soul but that high-riding box didn’t fit the traditional SUV mould and eventually disappeared from Aussie price lists.
With the Seltos, Kia has a product that looks more like what buyers are expecting… and it’s pretty good!
11 utes, 1 winner: 2019 Dual-cab ute comparison – Best ute of 2019
Our most-watched video of 2018 was our dual-cab mega test. Our most-watched video of 2019 was… our dual-cab mega test.
It comes as no surprise, really. After all, the two best-selling vehicles in Australia are the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger, while the Mitsubishi Triton, Isuzu D-Max and Holden Colorado are regular fixtures in the Top 20.
Lots of sales means lots of views for our mega test. In it, we found some of the most popular utes are some of the best utes you can buy.
