Tech Tour: Audi A8 infotainment and technology review

To say that the Audi A8 is packed with features and technology may be the understatement of 2018. In fact, when we tested the A8 recently, we felt the depths of technological talents deserved their own story. Join us on this guide to just what Audi’s A8 is capable of...

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...

First look: 2019 Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover has unveiled its new-generation 2019 Range Rover Evoque. No surprise, it's basically a 'mini Velar'. What do you think of the evolutionary but sleek new look? Get the full story at the link below.

2019 Ford Mustang: 5 Cool Things

It’s become one of Australia’s most popular performance cars and understandably so, mixing old-school muscle-car charm with modern technology and performance, and just two years after Ford officially brought the Mustang to our shores, we’ve already received an updated version...

2019 Alpine A110 review: Australian launch at Targa High Country

Make no mistake, the new Alpine A110 is first and foremost an enthusiast’s car. Fast, light and extremely agile. But, it’s also a car that can be driven as a daily, not even fast, mind, but enjoyed all the same, by anyone. I’d go further and issue a warning to those keen enough to try it out – make sure you’ve got the coin for an on-the-spot purchase, because this thing is also thoroughly addictive and fast acting to boot...

2019 Toyota RAV4: 7 Cool Things!

Surprise, surprise (or no surprise at all), the new Toyota RAV4 has more than a few cool features going on. The new-gen model will hit Australia in the second quarter of 2019, with a 127kW/203Nm 2.0-litre petrol engine and a more powerful 152kW/243Nm 2.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid version. What do you think of the new model? Get more details here...

2018 Chevrolet Camaro review: Converted for Australia

The Chevy Camaro by HSV isn't the perfect solution for Australia. Naturally, we'd prefer GM just make the damn thing RHD, but it has decided that in this generation it's not viable. As a fallback, this thoroughly developed and even locally crash-tested for ADR compliance solution is instead a better (and cheaper) option than other conversion jobs...

SEMA 2018: Kia Stinger cop car, Cerato drifter on tour

Kia Australia's police-duty Stinger has debuted at this week's SEMA show in Las Vegas, where it would be used to showcase just how capable the Stinger could be as a police car not only in Oz, but anywhere in the world. Oh, and the wild Red Bull Forte (Cerato) drift car is also on show!

2019 Peugeot 508 review: First drive

Who buys a large sedan anymore? In Australia, not many. But, the new Peugeot 508 Fastback is a great option if you simply don’t want an SUV and are after something fun and sporty. Prices are yet to be confirmed, but expect it somewhere between $45-55,000 (a little lower or a little higher is possible). It’s worth cross-shopping with the Volkswagen Arteon...

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review: First drive

There’s a reason why the Sprinter is number one in its class. It’s not the cheapest van necessarily, but it’s a technology leader with a vast range of variations and an experienced network behind it. The fact so many discerning fleets choose it is a pretty telling recommendation, though go look at the Crafter and Transit too.

2019 BMW X4 xDrive30i M Sport review: is it enough?

There’s no doubt the new 2019 BMW X4 is a vastly improved thing over its predecessor. In fact, I’d go one better than that and say it’s probably the closest thing yet to a BMW sedan experience from an SUV in this segment.

Hyundai i30 Premium petrol review: Good value, but...

Like the wider range, the Hyundai i30 Premium petrol is practical, reasonable to run and has a five-year warranty, which is a handy boost over the three years of coverage offered by Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen. Its only problem is the SR Premium. It's just $1790 more expensive and brings a 1.6-litre turbo engine, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a multi-link rear suspension to the table...

Citroen C3 Aircross

What does the incoming C3 Aircross mean for the C4 Cactus in Australia? Only time will tell, given the two are so similar in their dimensions and intent, but we know this much: the C3 Aircross is a great little thing.

2019 Holden Acadia review: Australian launch

As Holden continues to redefine what the brand means without the drawcard of a local production stamp, introducing a new product from the previously unseen GMC portfolio poses a significant risk. But, thanks to a just-right mix of size, power, and handling set for local conditions, the Acadia starts out on the right foot...

2019 Ford Ranger 2.0-litre XLT Bi-Turbo review: First look

The new 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel 2019 Ford Ranger is smoother, quieter, and more advanced. It further blurs the lines between built-for-purpose and built-for-families – especially in high-spec XLT trim – and looks set to continue its streak as the jewel in Ford Australia’s sales crown.
