2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Original review

It seems that just about every company is doing a hot hatch these days, from Hyundai to Mercedes-Benz. However, there is only one original, and that's the Volkswagen Golf GTI. The nameplate has been around for over four decades now, and those three letters continue to represent sports car performance mixed with everyday drivability and practicality...

BMW i3s video diary: Range anxiety and reality

Australia is not known for its eager and rapid embrace of the electric vehicle. Infrastructure is barely existent, purchase price is high, and 'range anxiety' is a major concern. But, when most of us live in dense urban areas, should we really be all that worried about running out of juice? To find out, we drove the new i3s for a full week, without charging...

2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class review: 7 Cool things

See the full article here Sportier, larger, roomier, more premium – these are all given, but ‘grown up’, in Benz’s words specifically, suggests an about-face for a range born of maturity in small cars, but went for the youthful jugular in successive second and third generations.

Old v New: 2018 Audi RS5 and the 1988 Audi Quattro

Audi's all-paw 'quattro' technology has come a long way, making the new 2018 Audi RS5 an utter monster in all conditions. It all started with the Audi Quattro of the '80s, though – so we invited our mate Joe Achilles to take the new turbocharged six-cylinder RS5, and this five-pot 1988 Quattro, for a spin down memory lane...

Honda Magic Seats and the HR-V: How capacious can you go?

We've long heaped praise on Honda for its 'Magic Seats' design, conceived to make the company's passenger cars as practical as possible. Almost as practical as a small commercial van, in fact. To properly test the case, we set ourselves the challenge of flipping the rear seats of the little HR-V and packing it to the roof...

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.

So we loaded 30 of your best and boldest questions into our Little Book of N and, thus armed, we hit the road and track for two days, and talked to some of the experts behind the pale blue pint-sized rocketship, in our course of i30 N discovery...

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.
