2019 Jeep Wrangler review: Tacos, burgers and surfboards in SoCal

One of the world’s most closely guarded secrets is when the next Land Rover Defender might appear and what it will look like. No-one seems to know anything, not a single solitary thing. Not when, what, where or how. Nothing. For years, it’s been a total information lockdown, as if Britain’s domestic spy agency, MI5, is running the communications department up at Land Rover’s HQ in Gaydon – at least as far as the next-generation Defender goes...

Porsche Taycan: Why 20,000 per annum mightn't be enough

Porsche plans to build 20,000 Taycans each year, with deliveries to Europe and the USA commencing late 2019. Early indications are that production run may fall short of demand. While refusing to be pinned down on actual numbers, a representative from Porsche Australia told CarAdvice they'd received hundreds of ‘expressions of interest’ before anyone has actually seen the car, let alone driven it...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan review

From the B-pillar forward the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is identical to the hatch, but this the more complete car with good looks and a ton of tech to tempt new car buyers looking for a compact luxury ride.

Renault Sport looking at softer variants and SUVs

The new Renault Megane RS280 might be an easier car to daily drive than its hard-riding predecessor, but it still looks and feels special on road and on track. In the hot-hatch world, it’s always been a bit of a left-field choice amongst bigger sellers like the Golf GTI/R, and as such has never really hit big sales numbers...

Renault Megane RS 'more a match for Golf R' - CEO

The latest Renault Megane RS to drop locally has very big shoes to fill if it's to come anywhere near the success of its much-lauded second-generation predecessor, which saw Australia ranked number three in global sales. It's clearly a crucial model for the French carmaker both globally and in Australia for more than just sales numbers, according to local Renault CEO, Andrew Moore, who spoke with CarAdvice at the Australian launch recently...

2019 Renault Megane RS review

Despite downsizing the motor, the new third-gen Renault Megane RS is a huge step up from the model it replaces with more pace, equipment and tech than ever before. It's no less capable, yet far more liveable.

Lexus UX launching without Apple CarPlay in Australia

In a move that may seem more than a little puzzling to buyers, Lexus plans to launch its all-new UX crossover later this year in Australia without Apple CarPlay. While the company says it will begin rolling out the technology some time in 2019, it should be noted each of the UX's competitors – namely the Audi Q2, BMW X1 and X2, and the Volvo XC40 – are available with CarPlay as standard kit across the range or, in the case of BMW, in the form of an optional wireless setup...
