2018 Jaguar F-Type SVR review
  • Savagery of engine is matched by the exhaust note; Feels properly premium and different, and garners attention everywhere; Beautiful cabin is finished properly
  • Infotainment can't match current segment leaders; Boot is near useless with a space-saver spare tyre optioned; You won't ever go anywhere unnoticed again

OUR RATING
8.2 / 10

2018 Jaguar F-Type SVR review

The F-Type SVR is Jaguar's pièce de résistance in the range, and the most potent of the breed. Its price is high, but so are its performance capabilities.

2018 Audi RS5 v BMW M4 Competition comparison

You could call a comparison between the 2018 Audi RS5 and 2018 BMW M4 Competition a battle of ethos. A battle, if you will, of two different ways of solving the same problem. Which problem? Delivering a blindingly fast, somewhat affordable track weapon that needs to be used every day. It’s not an easy conundrum to solve either...

Mercedes-Benz X-Class: What's different from Navara?

"It's just a Navara mate." There's going to be a lot of that over the next few months, and while the 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class does share a platform with the 2018 Nissan Navara, there's more than a few changes under the skin. Let's take a look at them. A wider track The X-Class has a 50mm wider body than Navara, but crucially a 70mm wider track...

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class review

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class is now available locally, and the premium dual-cab segment is set for a shake-up. Comparisons await, but how does it feel from first impressions?

2018 Ford EcoSport Trend review

The Ford EcoSport has been given an important update, but is it good enough to move buyers in the competitive compact SUV segment?

2018 Range Rover Vogue Si4 PHEV review

Not so long ago, the idea of a four-cylinder Range Rover would have seemed ridiculous. Paired with an electric motor though, it's actually a practical real-world combination.

2018 Volkswagen Passat 132TSI Comfortline Wagon review

The Volkswagen Passat 132TSI Comfortline presents, on paper at least, as the smart-money pick in the Passat Wagon range. It's a sensible alternative to the sea of SUVs too.

2018 Peugeot 5008 GT review

The Peugeot 5008 is a value-packed SUV, but the question we look to answer here is whether the GT is the model grade to have.

2018 Subaru Levorg STI Sport v Skoda Octavia RS245 comparison review

Wagons… We’re constantly reminding readers about them here at CarAdvice. Don’t just sleepwalk into a dealer and buy an SUV like everyone else, when a wagon is more than likely the solution you need – it’s a message you’ll read and hear from us often...


Road Trip USA: Pacific Coast Highway in a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda

Road Trip USA: Pacific Coast Highway in a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda

Wafting from corner to corner in the hills behind the Pacific Coast Highway south of Santa Monica, I’m evocatively transported back to 1969. Thin steering wheel in hand, the rock of the body from corner to corner as the suspension loads up, automatic gearbox whirring away quietly, raucous exhaust note echoing off the rock walls, the salty So Cal breeze rolling through the immaculate cabin off the ocean...

2018 Jeep Cherokee review

The polarising front end is gone, but the same two engines remain. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is 'same same but different'. It still has the chops, though, to appeal to buyers in the medium SUV segment.

Jeep Cherokee was ready for a makeover: designer

Despite disagreeing with CarAdvice that the outgoing Cherokee was somewhat unattractive, Brian Nielander, Jeep design studio chief, admitted the medium SUV was 'ready for a redesign'. There's little doubt the styling of the old model was a love or hate proposition, and with a focus more on premium styling and refinement for the new model, that 'shark style' front end has gone the way of the dodo...

Mercedes-Benz: MBUX will "change the face of car infotainment'"

Having officially released its MBUX infotainment system to the world at the CES in Las Vegas, Mercedes-Benz went on to emphasise its belief that the smartphone-like interface will in fact 'revolutionise the face of in-car infotainment'. It's a big call, but having tested the system firsthand - albeit briefly - there is some merit to the claim...
