2021 Lexus LC500 coupe review
  • HUD stays visible with polarised sunglasses; Interior is dramatically stunning; There’s simply no tiring of that engine; Blissfully comfortable long-distance cruiser
  • 10-speed auto feels like two too many; Infotainment still a sticking point; Exterior mirrors needs a wider view; Steering feel doesn’t match the rest of the handling package

OUR RATING
8.6 / 10

2021 Mitsubishi new cars

With overall sales down by almost a third in 2020, Mitsubishi will be no doubt he hoping for a turnaround in 2021. While updates to the Eclipse Cross SUV, and Outlander PHEV in late 2020 helped maintain momentum, 2021 should see some bigger introductions. By far the most significant of these will be an all-new Outlander, replacing the family-sized current model that's been around (and updated numerous times) since 2012...

2021 Toyota Vios GR-S proves the Gazoo treatment can be used anywhere

It seems only fair that as Toyota expands the reach of its Gazoo Racing performance arm globally, more market-specific models will appear. This kind of thinking could see rally-inspired, overlanding versions of the HiLux and LandCruiser reach Australian showrooms. In Malaysia, however, it sees the GR treatment applied in a very different way...

It was a case of steady as it goes for SUV brand, Haval, in 2020. No new models arrived last year, though the very tail end of 2019 saw an update to the H2 small SUV filter into showrooms.

Armoured Ford Ranger and Everest: From workhorse to warhorse

You won’t find them in the pages of a glossy dealership brochure, nor listed on the Ford Australia website, but it turns out the Ford Ranger and Ford Everest come in a range of ‘security vehicles’ specifications. In the same way high-powered political officials can get themselves into ballistics-rated BMW X5s and sniper-proof Mercedes-Benz S-Classes, tradies living secret lives as undercover agents can bulk up their protection in a Ranger or Everest...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 review

Somewhere between seven-seat spaciousness and urban-friendly dimensions lies the GLB. Close to a GLC in size, but with two extra seats to lure the ‘just in case’ crowd.
