Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors  measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process...

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 review

It might not have an S badge on the boot lid, but rest assured the Mercedes-AMG E63 is still a monster-powered four-door sedan capable of mixing it up with genuine supercars. It can also carry your family in sublime luxury.

Ford: Raptor to boost 4x4 Ranger sales further beyond HiLux

While the Ranger still trails the Toyota Hilux in overall sales, Ford will be hoping the all-new Raptor will help it pull further ahead of its Toyota rival in 4x4 sales. Last month, Ford sold 2892 4x4 Rangers – 12 more than Toyota sold 4x4 HiLuxes – for a 23.7 per cent share of the hotly-contested segment...

Ranger Raptor: Focusing on cylinder count is "missing the point"

What would the Ranger Raptor be like with a V6? To ask that question is to miss the point – at least according to Ford. The Ranger Raptor will arrive with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel under the bonnet, mated with a 10-speed automatic. With the boost from sequential turbos, the Raptor makes 157kW and 500Nm of torque...

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 140TDI review

As a value-for-money proposition, the Skoda Kodiaq hits the ball out of the park. But the 140TDI asks a six-grand premium that only stacks up if your lifestyle demands the extra grunt and fuel-saving benefits.

Ford: Ranger Raptor 10-speed auto "very capable"

In an attempt to meet the ambitious performance targets it set for the Ranger Raptor, Ford engineers turned to the 10-speed automatic from the full-size F-150 Raptor. The transmission, according to John Fallu, transmission and driveline engineering manager for Ford Asia Pacific, was chosen because it meets "both our refinement and performance benchmarks" for the Raptor...

2018 Subaru Outback review: 2.5i Premium

If ever there were an alternative to the average SUV, it's the 2018 Subaru Outback. More kit, better road manners and smart storage solutions complete what is an excellent family chariot.

Chief engineer: Ranger Raptor four-cylinder is the right choice

Ford has finally taken the wraps off its latest halo model, the first Ranger Raptor, at a packed-out event in Bangkok. The US-based automotive giant is billing the Raptor as an off-road performance pick-up, with a beefed-up chassis and 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel mated to an all-new 10-speed auto transmission...

2018 Jaguar E-Pace review

The Jaguar E-Pace arrives as the marque's second only crack at the luxury SUV market. It should do well, given it's cleverly packaged with good dynamics and useful practicality.

E-Pace: Why is Jag's newest SUV such a fat cat?

It might be classed as a compact SUV, but weighing in at nearly 1.9 tonnes, the new Jaguar E-Pace is up to 380kg heftier than its closest rivals, which include Audi’s ageing Q3, BMW’s X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA. And that’s comparing apples with apples, as all four vehicles are powered by 2.0-litre turbo fours, in petrol and diesel forms...

2018 Mercedes-Benz E300 Cabriolet review

It's hard to pick the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet from the S-Class, but even with a turbo-four under the bonnet, it's still a lot of car for the money – and a great buy for the more prudent buyer.

2018 Kia Sportage review: SLi diesel

There's a stack of players in the mid-size SUV segment, but only one with a full seven-year factory warranty. That's this – the Kia Sportage – and we reckon the AWD SLi diesel is the pick
