2018 Holden Calais-V Tourer v Subaru Outback 3.6R

Sunny days at the beach, camping trips at the weekend, making new paths to new destinations. Not quite what you’d expect a humble station wagon to do, yet for years Aussie families did just that with trusty and rugged Kingswoods and Falcons...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi review

While it may be the entry point to the CR-V range, the base-grade VTi neither looks nor feels like a cut-price path into Honda’s refreshingly competent medium SUV.

2018 Honda Odyssey VTi-L review

Call it what you like, MPV, minivan, people mover… The Honda Odyssey can’t muster the same level of enthusiasm as similarly sized SUVs with seven seats.

UPDATE, 25/7/18: The new Q3 has been officially revealed. Read more here.

2018 Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost v Mazda 6 Atenza turbo comparison

Medium-sized passenger cars, like many other ‘traditional’ segments, are on the nose with Aussie buyers as SUVs continue to star in the sales charts. That makes buyers of cars like the Ford Mondeo and Mazda 6 real winners, with once humdrum medium sedans pushing into near-premium territory as a play to gain buyer attention...

2018 Mazda BT-50 GT dual-cab review

Without base changes to keep it fresh, Mazda Australia has turned to window dressing to keep BT-50 sales buoyant. With a few more years to run before an all-new replacement arrives, Mazda’s ute gets a new face to help carry it through while the fundamentals fall into a holding pattern.

2018 LDV T60 Luxe 4x4 automatic review: Owner loaner

Australia’s love affair with utes shows no signs of slowing, presenting a prime opportunity for new entrants like the LDV T60 to slot in. While the Chinese brand is far from a household name right now, it could be just one convincing product away from success. Could the T60 be the one?

2018 Renault Koleos v Volkswagen Tiguan comparison

As the current family favourite in Australia, medium SUVs represent the second-biggest slice of the local new car market – hot on the heels of more affordable (and often fleet-favoured) small cars. The choice of available models is broad with 19 mainstream models to pick from, but in this instance we’ve chosen a pair of haulers that can not only live up to the demands of active family life, but do so with a semi-premium Euro twist...

2018 Isuzu MU-X LS-U 4x4 review

Its sales outrank some bigger-name family SUVs, but its tech and features don’t always live up to contemporary expectations. Does the Isuzu MU-X prove that Australian hearts really do belong in the country’s wide open spaces?

2018 Mazda MX-5 RF Black Roof automatic review

Every bit an MX-5, albeit one with added security and refinement, the Mazda MX-5 RF GT Black Roof appeals to both your sensible and spirited sides.

2018 Audi RS3 Sportback review

Loud. Outrageous. Utterly illogical. Usually these aren’t flattering terms, but apply them to the Audi RS3 Sportback and they become an ode to automotive hooliganism in one of its finest forms.

2018 Kia Rio S manual review

The Kia Rio may carry an air of Euro sophistication in its external styling, but open the door and you’ll be welcomed by a much more basic interior. That’s no bad thing, though – a back to basics fit-out is one thing the Rio uses to its advantage.

2018 Lexus LS500 Sports Luxury review

Lexus once again takes aim at the top end of town with its new LS500 flagship sedan, with a new platform, new engine, and incredibly detailed handcrafted interior that puts its German competitors on notice.

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.
