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.

2018 BMW X3 sDrive20i review

Does the lack of output and trinkets rob BMW's entry point into the X3 range, the sDrive20i, from a properly premium experience? We live with it for a week to find out. Lust after German premium badge cachet, need mid-sized SUV practicality, and would rather dance on broken glass than drive a ‘diseasal’? Then BMW’s newest petrol-powered middleweight family hauler, the X3 sDrive20i, is out to seduce you...

Get a grip: Falken Azenis FK510 tyres on the CarAdvice GTI

Sponsored by: Falken Tyres We've wrapped the CarAdvice Golf GTI's rims with new rubber from Falken Tyres: the Azenis FK510. It's proven a good all-round performer, which is handy, as that's just what Falken claims the feeling should be for drivers. The tyre itself can be fitted to most road cars, and its design is geared toward performance, with features intended to ensure strong performance in wet conditions...

AEB, LDA, LKAS, LOLBBQ... Safety acronyms demystified

AEB, LDA, LDW, RDM, ACC... what on earth does it all mean? (Okay, you got us, 'LOLBBQ' isn't a real safety system...) All of these acronyms for the high-tech safety systems in modern cars can be confusing, especially with each vehicle manufacturer picking their own trademarkable name for features that usually fit under a broad umbrella...

Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6 review: The one true X-Class?

Mike Costello jets to Europe for a first run in the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6, driven by Merc's very own six-cylinder diesel engine. On first impressions then, the X350d feels more like a ‘proper’ Benz than the four-cylinder version, and does more to justify the cost of those three-pointed star badges (two at the front, one at the rear, one in the tub, one on each side step and each wheel, and one each on the steering wheel and gear shifter, in case you forget what you’ve purchased)...

Lotus Evora GT430 review

The Evora is the flagship model from British carmaker Lotus, and one of the newest evolutions is called the GT430. The GT430 is the most powerful iteration of the Evora yet, and clearly the most track-focused version ever built, given it makes up to 250kg of downforce thanks to a massive carbon-fibre rear wing that would look more at home on a Le Mans racer than a street-legal road car...

Renault Trafic: A van for all trades

Sponsored by: Renault The venerable Renault Trafic remains a popular option for Aussie businesses, despite still being available in manual form only. (We of course offer an immediate tip o' the hat to those buyers sticking with the manual life!) To demonstrate the Trafic's versatility and capability, Renault tasked CarAdvice with recruiting a group of hard-working load-hauling locals to spend time on the job with the 103SWB variant...
