Isuzu I-Venture Club tackles the Victorian High Country

Endless sweeping views across mountain ridges that reveal a sea of green as far as the eye can see. Crystal-clear streams snaking along valley floors. Towering eucalypts both alive and long since ravaged by bushfires, standing like ghosts stretching towards the heavens. The Victorian High Country is truly special, but you need a 4WD and some skill to discover it...

Often, manufacturers will pull elaborate stunts to celebrate their icons. Land Rover loves a good publicity stunt, but its latest Defender celebration takes things to new heights, drawing the "world's most remote Defender outline" in the French Alps. So, why go to the effort of sketching a giant Defender in the snow? To start with, it's 70 years since the car debuted at the Amsterdam motor show...

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 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 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Kakadu towing review

In 2017, the Toyota Prado was the biggest-selling large SUV in Australia, with nearly 16,000 finding new homes. Its off-roading abilities are legendary. The Prado sits comfortably in the LandCruiser family, and that badge alone leaves 4WD tracks in a quivering mess. However, most are bought simply as a vehicle to drop off or pick up the kids at school...
