2019 Volkswagen Polo Beats review

It's not cheap, given the same fundamental powertrain and transmission package is available for less, but the Beats offers all the Polo's best assets in a package that'll no doubt appeal strongly to people who want to stand out a bit more than is possible in the Comfortline or R-Line...

This is the GLS Premium, now the flagship in the Triton range, replacing the Exceed. Can the new facelifted model compete with the top-shelf offerings in the Ranger and HiLux lines?


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?


2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 review: It ain't cheap, but is it a good buy?

Look... The Mercedes-AMG G63 is one of the most pointless cars in the world. But, the world is a much better place because of its existence. If you ever spot one of these on the road, tip your hat to the legend that spent the best part of $300,000 on a car that puts a smile on the face of anybody that loves excess.


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.

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...

Alfa Romeo Giulia and the 105: Targa Florio Australian Tribute

Here, Mandy takes a spin in both the powerful new Alfa Romeo Giulia Q, and the legendary 1970 Alfa Romeo 105 Giulia Sprint GT 1300 Junior.

REVIEW: 2019 Maserati Levante

Its lower price point makes the new entry-level Maserati Levante a more appealing proposition than ever before, and from where I sit it’s the sweet spot in the range. There just isn’t a lot to whinge about with this vehicle...

Review: 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric first drive

Buyers who walk into a Hyundai dealer won't be disappointed by the Ioniq, whether they drive the PHEV or the EV. It's the Electric we're most excited about, though, because of what it represents for the local electric market. It'll be an introduction to electric power for lots of people and, rather than frightening them with an otherworldly driving experience, it manages to highlight the tech's benefits without feeling threatening, or strange...

Review: 2019 Volkswagen Touareg first drive

It’s impossible to dispute that the only thing about the Touareg that isn’t definitively ‘premium’ is its badge (ok, and its steering wheel). It’s as good off the beaten path as ever, and highly competent when towing, but also brings new levels of luxury and tech. It’s almost too accomplished in some ways, especially if you’re looking from Audi’s vantage point...

Review: 2019 SsangYong Musso

The Musso will pick up where it left off: a slightly left-of-centre Korean offering with sharp pricing and good inclusions. While it's a bit of a compromise off-road, the good levels of comfort and refinement go a long way. And the new seven-year warranty is an absolute cracker. It's definitely worth jumping behind the wheel for a test drive, to see if that ride and interior tickles your fancy for the money...
