Mahindra launches next generation Pik-Up

2009 Mahindra Pik-Up - First Look Ever heard of, or even seen a Mahindra Pik-Up? Funny enough, I saw one of these Indian designed and built vehicles yesterday for the first time, on Sydney’s northern beaches. Don’t be at all surprised though, by the lack of Mahindra sightings if you happen live in any of Australia’s capital cities, you're not the target market, at least, not yet...

2009 Peugeot 308HDi Touring - Long term update “After two months as our family chariot, Peugeot’s 308 HDi Touring is a car we could easily live with permanently” Right from week one, I was impressed with the sheer versatility of the Peugeot 308 Touring, particularly for a car that is just 225mm longer than the 308 Hatchback...

Fiat 500 and Microsoft Blue&Me

You’re thinking what on earth do a Fiat 500 and Microsoft have in common? That’s a good question and one, which I didn’t know the answer to until a little yellow Fiat 500 arrived, with what Microsoft claim is the “real” in-car hands free solution...

“Le Mans 24 Hours is the single biggest motor sport event in the world and many of the 250,000 fans are giving Aston Martin the thumbs up” words Anthony Crawford, photography Nick Dimbleby & Rachel Palmer This is a 24 hour race, which means me and every other media jock and pit lane specialist worth a crumpet, pulled an all-nighter to cover Aston Martin’s involvement in this year’s 24 Heures Du Mans...

2009 Aston Martin DBS Volante – en route to Le Mans

Having flown half-way round the world, courtesy of an Airbus A380 superliner, I'm sitting in a slightly grey and damp London town, pondering the prospect of a quick dash across France in the latest fabulous offering from Aston Martin. Volante is pretty much Aston Martin speak for drop-top, convertible or high-speed open air motoring, and I’m here to join what should be the ultimate launch of Aston Martin’s latest dream machine...

2009 Peugeot 308 Touring - Long Term Test

2009 Peugeot 308 Touring XSE HDi - Long Term Test If I didn’t get moving in a few minutes, I was a certainty to miss my flight and that wouldn’t be a good thing if I liked the idea of continued employment with CarAdvice. But my self-inflicted tardiness was about to get a whole lot more critical, when I switched on the ignition and saw the fuel warning light beaming back at me...

New Toyota Prius First Look

“More power, more efficient and even greener, the third generation Prius has definitely got our attention” Call me ignorant or uninformed but I’ve never heard of a five-seat production car with a co-efficient of drag as low as 0.25. Take it from me, this is a staggeringly low figure (Hummer H2 – 0.57, Ferrari F40 – 0.34, Chevrolet Volt – 0...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Review

“Hammering down the autobahn at 302km/h and the V12 Vantage is rock solid, I mean it’s not moving a single millimetre.  Yes, this is the best car Aston Martin has ever made” It was always going to be a good thing when the boss of a car company likes to go racing in the company Vantage. No matter what the performance is out of the box, they will almost always want more...
