Dom Wiseman ditches the creature-comfort-laden lifestyle utes increasingly popular on our roads in favour of a true workhorse ute, the Isuzu D-Max SX single-cab chassis. Check out the video to see how the hauler stacks up.

2019 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport review

Toyota's new Corolla is bolder and sportier than ever before - perhaps more even than we could have ever imagined - but has it lost some practicality in the process? Jez Spinks drives. MORE: Corolla v Mazda 3 v Hyundai i30 comparison...

2019 Ford Everest Trend review: new bi-turbo 2.0-litre!

The 2019 Ford Everest is still worth a premium over its fellow ute-based SUVs, and stacks up in most ways against the Prado or Grand Cherokee. By adding a Bi-Turbo engine, Ford now has a more refined diesel seven-seat SUV that might appeal to some more adventurous families out there, and it’s certainly more at home than many competitors in handling urban duties...

2018 Mazda CX-9 Azami v Kia Carnival Platinum comparison

So you need to move seven-or-so people? There are more than a few options on the market today, from upgraded vans to more conventionally stylish choices like these two: the big but svelte Mazda CX-9 and the surprisingly tough-looking Kia Carnival. Depending on your order of priorities, one of these two could be the right pick for you...

Holden Colorado Z71 Xtreme: Going to Extremes

Adam Morris: The goal for Holden’s engineering team was for the heavily accessorised Xtreme to feel and drive like it wasn’t. And it has succeeded. The Xtreme doesn’t feel heavy or cumbersome to drive in the way some aftermarket accessorised 4WDs can, and as previously mentioned, besides the extra wind noise above 60km/h, on road, there is very little difference between the standard Z71 and the Xtreme...

2019 Renault Megane RS v Civic Type R and Focus RS: Hot hatch encore!

Well, you asked for it. When we ran our last hot hatch comparison, Renault had rudely not yet launched its new Megane RS in Australia. So, we had to leave it out, and we wound up with winners in the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus RS. But now the Megane RS is here... can it dethrone our heroes? We went back to the track to find out.

Cruising Sydney's best tunnels in the Audi R8 RWS

A 5.0-litre V10. A stonking 397kW. The sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds. And it’s 50kg lighter than its quattro AWD big brother making it more nimble and agile. This is the rear wheel drive Audi R8 RWS. Unfortunately there are a distinct lack of Alps and snow capped peaks in the suburbs surrounding Sydney but there is something that the harbour city is certainly not lacking in...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class review: Australian launch

Our first look at the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class has revealed a surprise package that will really redefine this segment. It makes the BMW 1 Series look ancient in comparison and the Audi A3 like a vanilla-coloured appliance.

2018 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera review: First drive

Driving any Aston Martin is a privilege, and this DBS Superleggera is no different. It’s stunningly fast, properly premium, different and classy. The fact that it can also be so easy to drive and benign is a sign of the times at the highest end of the buying scale. It will be rare Down Under too, and that in itself is priceless.

2018 Volkswagen Polo 85TSI review: The Polo grows up

On singular merit, the Polo remains very impressive, offers broad appeal, and doesn't really exhibit shortcomings of major concern in any critical areas. What this latest test has further anchored is the growing belief around the CarAdvice traps that this new generation has lobbed as the most mature offering in the compact class, and looks to maintain its class-act status for overall goodness...

Volvo XC40 v Mazda CX-5: Size and value!

One's a pricey small premium SUV, the other a volume-selling mid-sized SUV. One is focused on clever packaging and its all-new design, the other on its size, value and driving fun. But most of all: one is a bit of an unknown, and the other is one of Australia's most popular cars. So which should you be considering? Read on.

Ferrari 488 Spider review: Why bother with the coupe?

Alborz Fallah: When it comes down to it, if you happen to meet anyone that says the convertible 488 is a compromise, or that it’s not a real Ferrari, call them out for what they are – an idiot. Otherwise, if you want to daily a Ferrari, the Spider is the best way to go.
