2018 Ford Ranger Wildtrak review

Once the Ford Ranger Raptor arrives later this year, the Wildtrak will be bumped from the top spot of the Blue Oval's hierarchy. Before that happens, we've jumped behind the wheel for another spin to see if the 2018 Ranger Wildtrak can still stack up.

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63L review

With a confident swagger, subtle muscularity, and a thumping twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, the Mercedes-AMG S63L makes for a surprisingly fitting flagship for the brand, encompassing the best of luxury and performance in one formidable package.

2018 Citroen Berlingo SWB manual review

It shouldn’t be too long now until a new Berlingo delivery van breaks cover. Until that happens, though, Citroen’s current workhorse and sole commercial offering in Australia holds the fort and refuses to let its advancing years hold it back.

2018 Toyota HiLux Rugged X manual review

Rugged by name, rugged by nature. Toyota has long maintained the HiLux is unbreakable, and its newest flagship, the Rugged X, wears its off-road credentials on its sleeve. But while it may be tough on the outside, the interior plays up its plushness.

2018 Mahindra Pik-Up S10 4x4 dual-cab review

Simple. Rugged. Cheap. As far as hard-working utes go, the demands are fairly simple, yet the dual-cabs we’re most familiar with seem to be moving away from that formula. However, the Mahindra Pik-Up still has the basics covered.

2018 Nissan Navara ST-X review

Nissan takes another stab at bringing the Navara dual-cab’s load-carrying credentials up to scratch, but is chasing tradies the right choice for a car positioned as a family friendly all-rounder?

2018 Kia Stinger 330S review

Big-car space and turbocharged performance are the calling cards of the Kia Stinger. So, if you’re chasing maximum bang for your buck, the Stinger 330S has your number with the biggest engine for the cheapest price. But do the compromises balance the savings?

2018 HSV Colorado SportsCat+ review

This is HSV, but not as we know it. Now that the hot-shop is out of Aussie-built Commodores to tinker with, another Aussie favourite, the dual-cab ute, has become the centre of attention. Enter the Colorado SportsCat.

2018 Mini Cooper S review

It’s midlife makeover time for Mini’s current range, and if you thought the iconic little hatch couldn’t wear its British heart on its sleeve any more proudly, just wait until you pull up behind the latest version.
