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.

Despite looking a lot like an i8 Coupe with a missing roof, the extensive reworking involved to create the i8 Roadster ensures this new variant upholds BMW’s technical edge while still turning heads like nothing else on the road.

2018 BMW 630i Gran Turismo M Sport review

The name has plenty of evocative cues, but the BMW 6 Series GT isn’t a member of the German brand’s sporting family. Instead, it's attempting to inject a sense of style into the practical side of people-carrying.

2018 Holden Calais-V Tourer review

Holden spins its upmarket wagon into an all-road adventurer with the Calais-V Tourer. Following a formula familiar to Adventra owners thanks to all-paw grip and SUV styling, the Tourer serves the needs of Aussie families in a new way for the Lion brand.

2018 Infiniti QX80 S Premium review

For many brands, a flagship model takes the lead on technology, performance or style, but in Infiniti’s case its halo car is measured in kilograms. The QX80 is certainly big and brash, and for 2018 it’s also (a little) easier on the eye.

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross LS review

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross adds to the Japanese brand’s SUV range with its first truly new model in over half a decade. While it may be close to the slightly smaller ASX in format and theory, the fresher Eclipse Cross proves Mitsubishi has come a long way.
