Cars We Own: 2017 Kia Stinger 330Si diary

The Kia Stinger ignites passionate debate like few other cars we've driven at CarAdvice. With a big engine up front, loads of space in the middle and power going to the rear, there was no shortage of hype. As soon as it arrived in Australia, we knew we wanted to buy one...

Cars We Own: 5 things to know about the Audi S1

With a punchy four-cylinder turbo and quattro all-wheel drive squeezed under its pint-sized body, the 2014 Audi S1 Sportback has the potential to be seriously special. How does that translate to the real world? Although it provides a window into life with a car, there's only so much we can learn during a regular week-long review...

Cars We Own: A week-long fang in the Audi S1

Sharing is caring, right? Daniel Davis, long-time CarAdvice reader, recently jumped behind the wheel of our Audi S1. Here's what he thought of the car, in a short-and-sweet questionnaire.  What's your daily driver?  My current daily drive is a 2014 Ford Ranger with the turbo-diesel 3.2-litre, five-cylinder engine...

Cars We Own: 2017 Abarth 595 diary

It's bright red, sounds great and, crucially, comes from Italy. It isn't a Ferrari, though. Meet the CarAdvice Abarth 595, a pocket rocket with character to burn.  This is a Cars We Own diary for our own Abarth 595. Think of it as a rolling logbook, a little window into life with the cars in the CarAdvice stable...

Cars We Own: 2018 Kia Stinger 330Si introduction

As something of an unofficial, spiritual successor to the rear-drive Commodore, the Kia Stinger melts our website every time we talk about it. It's an important car for the South Korean brand, because it signals an entry into a segment it hasn't really competed in: large, rear-drive performance sedans. So we thought we'd buy one – a 2018 Kia Stinger 330Si...

Cars We Own: A weekend fling in the Abarth 595

When CarAdvice offered me one of their cars for a week, I gladly took on the Abarth 595. Although I’m a fan of compact cars, the Fiat (and Abarth) range is something I’ve overlooked. I think it’s because I had a Fiat Freemont hire car once, and really struggled to find anything I liked about it. I wasn’t expecting amazing things from the little 595 then...

Cars We Own: 2016 Mazda MX-5 diary

The Mazda MX-5 has become a default choice for people who want a light, simple sports car. But what is the two-seat convertible like to live with? Here's a diary of our time with the CarAdvice MX-5. Think of this as a rolling logbook, a little window into life with the cars in the CarAdvice stable. You'll find the most recent entries at the top, and the older instalments at the bottom...

Cars We Own: Tall man, meet the Abarth 595

The Abarth 595 is a very small car. I am a very tall man. I’m also new here at CarAdvice. You can probably see where this is going. The team in Melbourne threw me the keys to our littlest, reddest hatchback and, through fits of laughter, told me to have fun. We've already taken a detailed look at how we specced the Abarth, but here’s a quick rundown of the highlights...
