2019 BMW M5 Competition review

The Competition supplants the regular M5 as the quickest and fastest BMW currently on sale. But is there enough comfy 'velvet glove' to the daily driving experience to complement the iron-fisted performance?

2019 Toyota Corolla ZR petrol review

Despite the increasing popularity of hybrid motivation, two out of three Corollas remain pure petrol power. And while the flagship ZR four-banger mightn't be the shrewdest choice in the hatchback range, we discover it's oh-so likeable indeed.

2019 BMW 3 Series review

The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series range has landed in Aussie showrooms in petrol and diesel forms. So why is one version so much better than the other?

Lotus has sharpened the spec and the price of its Evora to create the track-friendly yet road-oriented GT410 Sport. Does it improve the breed?

2019 Volkswagen Amarok V6 Core review

Volkswagen cuts back the frills and trims the pricing on the Amarok V6 to create the Core. But has too much goodness been stripped out to make it less than the bargain it appears?

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring v Lotus Evora GT410 Sport comparison

The notion of comparing the oddly matched couple of new Lotus Evora GT410 Sport with the latest Porsche 911 GT3 Touring might seem preposterous enough that I’d be lucky to even capture just one person’s interest.

2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i review

Subaru's ever-popular Forester is all new, even if you blink and miss it. But is there more goodness below the skin in the base 2.5i version to make it a more appealing urban family runabout?

2019 Lexus RC350 F Sport review

Two updates and one facelift in, the midlife Lexus RC350 F Sport update makes for the best version yet. But is the likeable price-busting sports coupe now truly loveable? Let's find out.

2019 Hyundai i30 N Line manual review

The SR-replacing N-Line brings the performance N look, without quite so much go, to the i30 package. It turns out the buck-banging manual warm hatch is quite a cracker.

2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Wolfsburg review

Volkswagen throws everything bar the kitchen sink at the Tiguan to produce the new flagship Wolfsburg Edition. But with its mid-fifties price tag, is there enough substance on offer behind its smart appearance?
