A more premium take on Ford’s small hatch has arrived in Australia, right as competition in the class heats up. Will the new Focus Titanium get the attention it deserves this time around?
Australia’s already bustling small-SUV segment probably doesn’t need another competitor, but the Ssangyong Tivoli has arrived, all the same, to carve out its own little niche. Does it have what it takes to stand out?
You won’t spot the changes to the 2019 Renault Captur externally, but jump behind the wheel and a punchy new engine tells its own story.
Both the Skoda Karoq 110TSI and Hyundai Tucson Highlander are built around the same ‘utility vehicle’ philosophy, but despite differences in their makeup, they arrive at very similar conclusions. We’ve put together the highest spec of each available in Australia to see if Europe’s challenger brand, Skoda, has what it takes to topple the might of Hyundai...
Jaguar's had a change of heart regarding the Project 8's availability in Australia, the baddest factory four-door Jag yet. That's great news... for elite collectors, at least.
Retro design is one of those styling trends that can make people a little uncomfortable. Slapping an old face on a new car in the hope of eliciting a spending frenzy from nostalgic buyers often comes across as a little lazy. In the early 2000s car brands had hit peak-retro, it seemed...
Keen dynamics and impressive tech headline the new 3 Series, but does the price-leading 320d still suffer BMW's base-model malaise?
You may not look twice at it, and you’re unlikely to give it a second thought. In fact, the Subaru Forester is a touch unremarkable. That’s perfect too – some family cars just need to be family cars, and this one does a really good job of it.
At long last, Kia has what Aussies want in a hatch with a bit of extra poke: five doors and an automatic transmission. It’s been a while coming, but the new Cerato GT hatch ticks the boxes Kia couldn’t previously.
Each year the Geneva motor show provides a testing ground of new ideas and concepts for everyone from established manufacturers to design consultancies and dream-weaving hypercar builders. Sadly some of the very best concepts miss their chance at production, be it due to their outright outlandishness, or perhaps because the brands proudly displaying them simply couldn’t get the sums to add up on some of the more courageous design choices...
Like something of a blank canvas, over the last 30 years the Mazda MX-5 has become the launching point for all manner of modified motoring fantasies. You’ll find them crammed full of GM V8s, Ford V6s, Mazda’s own rotary engines, or a massive variety of turbocharged and supercharged upgrades. Some have been lowered, some have been lifted (yup, off-road and rally roadsters are a thing)...
The Mazda 3 is a firm favourite with Aussie buyers, and now with added equipment and a lower drive-away price for the Maxx Sport version, its value is better than ever.
A simplified range and much sharper pricing give Infiniti’s small QX30 SUV a much-needed brush-up for 2019. But without any core changes, there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
Mazda’s popular CX-3 small-SUV range continues to sell in mainstream numbers, but with a somewhat premium premise. To find out just how aspirational the compact soft-roader is, we put the range-topping Akari model to the test.
