2018 Kia Stinger: Traction control test

Last year when we compared the Kia Stinger to the V8 Aussie muscle car, the Holden Commodore SS-V Redline, Paul Maric said that you couldn't switch stability control off in the Stinger. A lot of you suggested that he was wrong. So, in the hunt for the answer, we hit the track and switched everything off!

2018 Lamborghini Urus review: First look

Trent takes a first look at the new Lamborghini Urus SUV, in and around Rome. Sick of Nespresso coffee pods at the racetrack, I divert from the road drive and pull into a small petrol station on a country road with a bar attached to it. I disappear inside, dispatch my coffee standing at the bar and reappear a few minutes later to find the Urus surrounded by locals...

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

2018 Hyundai i30 N: Your questions answered!

We went to our Facebook page just prior to the local launch of the i30 N and we asked you what you wanted to know about the new hot hatch.

2018 Holden Equinox range review

Holden has had to battle without a compelling mid-size SUV to rival the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson and Toyota RAV4 for far too long. But finally the brand has something to throw into the fray: the Holden Equinox, sold as a Chevy in North America but retuned by Holden’s engineers to better suit our roads.

2018 Holden Commodore review: RS Sportwagon 2.0 petrol

Holden wagons had been ferrying Australian families around long before the term ‘SUV’ emerged in the late 1980s. The traditional, lower-riding body style may be a niche choice on the road these days, but that hasn’t stopped the variant being part of the all-new Holden Commodore range imported from Europe. Jez explores the new offering.
