REVIEW: 2019 BMW 3 Series, Australian launch

How this new Bimmer fares as an all-rounder against the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains to be seen, but if the 3 Series brings with it the expectation of being the natural driver’s car to beat, this new version, in isolation at least, look to be more than capable of carrying the mantle and maintaining what many consider to be a hard-fought and well-earned reputation...

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 v Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk comparison

If you want something a little more adept off-road than your typical road-biased SUV, one of these two might fit the bill. Maybe you want to do some off-road adventuring, but you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. And maybe you’re more realistic about what you’re actually going to do, rather than what you’re aspiring to do...

Road to Race and the Lotus Elise: The complete story

There is a small violin playing for me somewhere amongst an ocean of epic first-world problems. My first-world problem? The unfulfilled desire to be a competitive racing driver. Any driving enthusiast would feel that relentless craving somewhere deep inside – the thought of ‘what if?’. What if I too could get paid to race a car competitively? This is my journey...

REVIEW: Can the 2019 Lexus UX challenge the X1, GLA, Q3?

Lexus jumps into the premium compact SUV market with its new UX, now on sale in Australia. Is it a worthy contender?


Lamborghini Huracan EVO review: Is this the new superhero?

It would be a travesty to call the Huracan EVO anything but a holistic triumph. Its myriad dynamic systems are in perfect balance with the chassis, and somehow it all comes together to provide one of the most exhilarating driving experiences I’ve had in a while. Bravo.

Road to Race, episode 6: Targa time, at last!

After months of driver training and hours of practice and preparation, race and safety modifications to our Lotus Elise Sport 220, it’s time for Alborz to see if he has what it takes in competitive motorsport. This is the event that we’ve been building up to since Episode 1 of Road to Race, it’s time for Targa High Country...

Review: 2019 Mazda 3 first drive

After a brief drive on foreign roads in cars that aren’t quite exactly like what we’ll end up with, is the 2019 Mazda 3 still positioned to be a segment favourite? While we don’t know final model grades – or pricing – yet, I think it’s a strong contender. We’ll let you know what those prices and grades are as soon as we can...

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor review: Big muscles, big jumps!

The Ford F-150 Raptor really is a beast – Ford has done an epic job with creating a big truck that can be driven daily and turns heads when doing so. Here's hoping that one day Ford comes to its senses and imports these to Australia as factory right-hand drive. Until then, you'll need to fork out a huge sum of money to call one your own in Australia...

Singer 911 REVIEW: A quick spin

You need a lot longer than 20 minutes to properly appreciate all the Singer 911 has to offer, but you need a lot less time to discover this might just be one of the world’s most desirable motorcars.

Ford Mustang Bullitt review: Cruising Sydney by night

Tony Crawford: It’s been a long time since I've enjoyed driving a car as much as I’ve enjoyed the new Mustang Bullitt. It’s not any single feature that nails it for me, rather it’s the entire package that includes noise, styling, features and performance – all of which come together so well to create a car that so much more that the sum of its parts...

Road to Race, episode 5: Prep and plan

With Targa High Country just around the corner, it’s time we take a look at Alborz and the Elise’s journey so far. How is his preparation coming along? What changes have been made to the car to get it Targa ready and has Alborz had enough time behind the wheel of the now competition prepared car? Finally, what is Alborz expecting from the event, the competition and himself now that he’s so close to start and finish line...

REVIEW: New 2019 BMW 3 Series driven!

The G20 delivers in a big way. If there’s one car BMW cannot afford to stuff up, it’s the 3 Series, and like its equally impressive new-generation 5 Series and X5, this one stakes a bold claim to class leadership that we’re looking forward to putting to the test. To say the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia have their work cut out is an understatement...

2019 Toyota RAV4: 7 Cool Things!

Surprise, surprise (or no surprise at all), the new Toyota RAV4 has more than a few cool features going on. The new-gen model will hit Australia in the second quarter of 2019, with a 127kW/203Nm 2.0-litre petrol engine and a more powerful 152kW/243Nm 2.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid version. What do you think of the new model? Get more details here...

2018 Chevrolet Camaro review: Converted for Australia

The Chevy Camaro by HSV isn't the perfect solution for Australia. Naturally, we'd prefer GM just make the damn thing RHD, but it has decided that in this generation it's not viable. As a fallback, this thoroughly developed and even locally crash-tested for ADR compliance solution is instead a better (and cheaper) option than other conversion jobs...

2019 BMW M2 Competition review: Australian launch

The new M2 Competition is a better car than its M2 predecessor, though not through any one component, including the new engine. Rather, it’s the sum of each and every component added and tweak made to the chassis itself that has produced a more precise, if not quicker, M-Car than that which it replaces. In the end, it's still the best M-Car under $150K that BMW builds...
