Nissan Navara AT32 and Terra ‘on the cards' for Australia

As you will have seen from our recent Moroccan adventures, CarAdvice spent some time sampling Nissan’s four-wheel drive portfolio on-road and off, tackling one section of the vast Sahara Desert. While we’re obviously familiar with Y62 Patrol, and we’ve spent time with the Titan before, two vehicles stood out as potential success stories if Nissan Australia can secure them...

Suzuki Jimny vs Toyota Prado off-road – video

If you're anything like us, the arrival of a new Suzuki Jimny is exciting news. With a cute, retro face and proper off-road chops, it's the antidote to the average soft-roader. But just how capable is it when the going gets really, really tough? To find out, Autocar put the flyweight Suzuki head-to-head with a proper heavyweight, in the form of the Toyota Prado three-door utility – known as the LandCruiser Utility in the UK...

SEMA 2018: 4x4 hall tour

There's no doubt SEMA is the go-to place if you're an aspiring company wanting to show what you can do and drum up business. It's trade-only, too, so it's not a general public event. It's all about business and promotion. While the focus might be on muscle cars and SEMA's hotrod roots, the 4x4 world is starting to take over in a big way...

Spintires: Mud Runner American Wilds review

If you’re a car nut that also doesn’t mind dabbling in a bit of gaming here and there, chances are you’ve got a copy of Forza or Gran Turismo floating around somewhere. I know I do. But, what if you’re a bit more about mud bogs than McLaren Senna? More gnarly rocks than the Nurburgring? Often, the only taste of off-roading you can get is something like Dirt Rally or an arcade-style racer...

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited diesel review

Premium equipment list, V6 diesel power, properly off-roadable and strong towing promise the right SUV stuff for Oz. But does the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited add up to the sum of its parts?

Nissan Navara ST Black Edition review: Driving Margaret River

This latest Black edition is based on the ST, but it really stands out. And, in a sea of dual-cab utes, it’s hard to imagine why anyone wouldn’t choose the Black Edition when looking at utes at this price point. I really like the look of it. It has a tough stance on road and more capability off it, which is exactly where it is aimed.

2019 Suzuki Jimny scores 3 stars in Euro NCAP testing

Suzuki's upcoming Jimny has scored just three stars in Euro NCAP testing, on the back of relatively low scores for adult occupant and vulnerable road-user protection. The adult occupant protection rating was hindered by a steering wheel airbag that didn't quite inflate correctly, allowing the driver's head to contact the steering wheel rim...

Dinosaur hunting in Mongolia

Dinosaur hunting in Mongolia

I’m sure that was rain on the window as our little Hunnu Air Fokker 50 banged down in Dalanzadgad, a tiny airstrip with one-room airport in the Gobi Desert, 580km from the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. After weeks of warnings about heat, sunstroke and to bring plenty of sunscreen, the drivers for our 60-minute airport shuttle to the lodge advised that it may take longer due to localised flooding and that there were no roads between the airstrip and – anywhere...

Yamaha Wolverine X4: It's the superhero we deserve

See the full article here. Bungee jumping, skydiving, stunt boats, black-run heli-skiing… There’s legitimacy to the claim of New Zealand’s Queenstown to be the adventure capital of the world. It’s certainly a fitting venue for CarAdvice’s introduction to a developing breed of transport that aims to offer recreational fun for families as well as serving as a utility vehicle for farms and commercial businesses...

Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen: A love story

Sometimes it’s hard to write an entirely objective review of an object whose primary appeal is emotional. Certainly, you can argue the Mercedes-Benz G-Class – or G-Wagen, which stands for Geländewagen – is a purpose-built, Zombie-apocalypse proof, no-nonsense military-style vehicle designed to conquer every surface the Earth has to offer...

2018 Jeep Cherokee review

The polarising front end is gone, but the same two engines remain. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is 'same same but different'. It still has the chops, though, to appeal to buyers in the medium SUV segment. See the full article here.  ...

Off-roading Fraser Island on the Isuzu I-Venture
