2018 Nissan Pathfinder N-Sport review
  • The V6 engine is a belter and it performs strongly; Cabin layout is exceptional with plenty of room and storage; We reckon it looks good with the black detailing
  • FWD-only is a negative for me in this segment; Driver infotainment system is now well behind the segment leaders; It's not cheap compared to others that offer off-road ability at that pricepoint

OUR RATING
7.3 / 10

2018 Nissan Pathfinder N-Sport review

Yet another version of the Pathfinder has rolled into the CarAdvice garage, this time the N-Sport. Does the extra black detailing equal a more compelling buying proposition?

2018 Mercedes-Benz V250d Avantgarde review

Moving more than two passengers in style and comfort is the subject of much debate in the motoring world. If you need to move more than five, though, the V250d really is tough to topple.

2019 Toyota Corolla range review

Believe it or not, I’m pretty excited at the prospect of this 2019 Toyota Corolla range review. Not so long ago, you’d have thought I was mad for making that statement, but stay with me for a minute… The Corolla looks better than it has for a long time, it’s more accomplished than it’s ever been in an engineering sense, and there is more than one engine variant worth considering – one an excellent hybrid drive system...

Negotiating Christmas in the 2018 Hyundai iLoad

Double demerit points, largely desolate roads and barely any traffic leave me wanting one thing over the Christmas break – a commercial vehicle that isn't likely to encourage me to get into any trouble. The CarAdvice Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series wasn't quite ready to go from its first round of mods and with the requirement that I lug my huge 80-litre Engel fridge/freezer around over the break, the 2018 Hyundai iLoad presented itself as the perfect solution...

2018 Mazda MX-5 1.5 review

The Mazda MX-5 continues to set the affordable roadster standard as the years roll on. Here we test the 1.5-litre to find out whether it's as much fun as the engaging 2.0-litre engine.

2019 Nissan Titan PRO-4X review

You only need to drive an American truck to understand why it would work in Australia – especially if you tow regularly. This Nissan Titan is just one example that we'd love to see in Australia.

2019 Nissan Terra review: Quick drive

The 2019 Nissan Terra is the rugged, Navara-based 4WD the Australian market is crying out for. The question is, can Nissan Australia make the business case to get it here?

2018 Holden Commodore RS long-term review 4: The sales rep

While we spend our time at CarAdvice reviewing cars for a living, there are plenty of other owners out there who spend as much, if not more, time in their vehicles as we do. Plenty of them are CarAdvice readers or listeners to the podcast and radio shows too – truck drivers, couriers, hire car chauffeurs, tradesmen and, of course, sales reps...

Range Rover Evoque embodies 'less is more' philosophy - lead designer

Styling is a precarious art, for both the designer and the consumer. You might think redesigning a Land Rover or Range Rover of any kind is tough (reference Defender and the lengthy wait for a replacement) but you'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger challenge than replacing the style-driven Evoque. Design director at Land Rover, Massimo Frascella, says it was a challenge he relished...

2019 Range Rover Evoque review: Prototype drive

CarAdvice had a very brief experience with the brand new Evoque at its global reveal in London - and things have changed for the standard-setting small luxury SUV.

Nissan Navara AT32 and Terra ‘on the cards' for Australia

As you will have seen from our recent Moroccan adventures, CarAdvice spent some time sampling Nissan’s four-wheel drive portfolio on-road and off, tackling one section of the vast Sahara Desert. While we’re obviously familiar with Y62 Patrol, and we’ve spent time with the Titan before, two vehicles stood out as potential success stories if Nissan Australia can secure them...

Mitsubishi to lead Alliance dual-cab development? Not so fast, says Nissan

Mitsubishi recently claimed – somewhat boldly – it would lead dual-cab development for the next generation of vehicles under its alliance. According to a senior figure inside the Nissan camp, that leadership role mightn't be as clear cut...

SEMA 2018: Touring the performance car hall

Call me a little biased, but I've been coming to SEMA since 2006 and from that very first year, the biggest highlight for me was always this hall, the aftermarket performance, hot-rod, rat-rod, resto-mod, classic cruiser, pick-up truck, muscle car - call it whatever you like - hall...

SEMA 2018: There's off-roading, and then there's this...

SEMA. It's seen as the mecca of all things performance, but many punters might not know it's also a showcase for the off-road industry – sometimes in all its overstated glory. It is the United States of America after all. For me, it's the greatest car show on the planet such is the scale, variety and scope of the products and vehicles on display...

2018 Jaguar E-Pace SE D240 review

Beautiful styling attracts buyers to the Jaguar brand, and while we love the attention to detail, a pricey and lengthy list of options won't be to everyone's tastes.
