2018 Range Rover Velar R-Dynamic SE P300 review

There is little doubt the Velar is a beautiful example of what Range Rover stylists can do. Problem is, it's headed into a market with so many options across the pricing spectrum. There's plenty to like about it, though.

2018 BMW X2 sDrive20i review

The BMW X2 is a triumph of modern automotive design, but is the German brand's stylish take on the burgeoning crossover market enough to make up for some of its shortcomings in other areas?

2019 Jaguar F-Pace 20d R-Sport RWD review

Jaguar's mid-size F-Pace is undeniably a beautiful-looking SUV, but how does it stack up with a small-displacement diesel under the bonnet?

2018 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Black Edition review

Black is the new, um, black, in the automotive world. And now Audi has joined the party with the A4 Black Edition. But does the addition of some styling elements and a beefier suspension come with a commensurate lift in performance?

2018 Nismo GT-R v Porsche 911 GT3 Touring comparison

If you placed me in a room with a Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package and a Nissan GT-R Nismo and ordered me to pick just one to live with for the rest of my days, without first letting me drive them, I’d make a terrible decision.

Summer road-tripping in the Ford Everest Trend

Summer road-tripping in the Ford Everest Trend

When Santa obliged an eight-year old’s request for a 26-inch mountain bike for Christmas, I knew the Ford Everest would fit my holiday vehicle needs nigh on perfectly. Why? Firstly, I’d need inherent cruising comfort, decent diesel economy and huge cargo space because dad and son are separated by a 800-odd-kay slog between Sydney and Bendigo and buggered if I’m going to keep pulling the front wheel off junior’s pride and joy once I (eventually) get to regional Victoria...

It was December 2017 and I was in France for the international launch of the reborn Alpine brand. My first glimpse of it in the metal evinced all kinds of physiological reactions. Weak-kneed, sweaty-palmed and heart racing, it was like the moment you know you fell in love for the first time...
