2020 Audi S8 review
  • The entire driveline is a masterpiece of power and ability; Quality of the cabin is second to none; New suspension and rear-wheel steering add to the overall ability
  • Not as efficient on paper as the technology would suggest it should be; Less power than the model it replaces; Real engine noise would be preferable over synthesised

OUR RATING
8.6 / 10

2020 Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior long-term review: Introduction

The 2020 Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior is something of a standout in the dual-cab segment in Australia. Whereas other manufacturers have been happy to release a product and let the aftermarket have its way with it, Nissan Australia decided to engage the aftermarket, allow them to enhance an already solid platform, and then offer it to the consumer with a full factory warranty...

2020 Lexus ES300h Sports Luxury long-term review: The road trip

Not so long ago, medium and large sedans ruled the highways and byways in Australia. Now, it's an SUV owner's domain. We still think the sedan has its place, though, and so we sent the ES300h south-west out of Sydney.

2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante review

The DBS Superleggera Volante needs no introduction. With a 5.2L V12 twin turbo and 900Nm, it makes its presence felt immediately. It's every bit as special as an Aston Martin should be.

Now is the time for more full-size US trucks to be made available in Australia

Close your eyes and you can hear it. It’s coming from everywhere. Even the merest mention of a US pick-up and the whining starts. You know what I mean, the high-pitched baying… “They’re too big!” “Who needs one?” “How ridiculous!” “Why would you want to drive something that big?” “Clogging up city streets in your silly big truck...

2020 Audi RS7 Sportback review: Quick drive

Bigger and beefier than the old model, the Audi RS7 Sportback now looks as tough as the on-paper performance indicates. It's practical, too, with second-row space and luggage space.

2020 Audi TT RS review: Quick drive

After one false start, the refreshed 2020 Audi TT RS is now on sale in Australia. It's a serious performance coupe, too, despite the slightly understated styling.

2020 Volkswagen Touareg towing review: 190TDI Premium

The new Volkswagen Touareg is a very real option for those buyers wanting a premium tow vehicle. We might not be towing a caravan this time, but we test the Touareg out on typical Aussie country roads.
