Poll: 2019 Holden Acadia falls short against Toyota Kluger

The just-released Holden Acadia is aimed directly at the Toyota Kluger, with a naturally-aspirated V6 engine, brash styling, and seven seats. Unfortunately for the Lion Brand, it's also dropped short of the Toyota in our latest poll, winning just 37 per cent of the 2200 votes cast. It's been two years since Holden announced the Acadia, which is a GMC in its home market, would be coming to Australia...

Poll: Porsche Cayman asserts itself over Alpine A110

Alpine Australia managing director, Andrew Moore, made no bones about the fact the new A110 is targeted directly at the Porsche 718 Cayman. If our latest poll is any guide, the reborn French brand has its work cut out taking on the four-cylinder, mid-engined Porsche. Just 17 per cent of people favoured the A110 over the Cayman, one the largest margin we've seen since starting the polls earlier this year...

Poll: Volvo V60 wins the Euro-wagon war

Peugeot might have officially confirmed the 508 Touring for Australia, but our latest poll shows there's plenty of demand for its Volvo V60 rival. Of the 1400 respondents to the poll, 68 per cent favoured the Swedish hauler over the Peugeot 508. Both promise to deliver a modern take on the classic European wagon formula, coupling chic looks with load bays capable of holding more than 530L...

Poll: Hyundai i30 Fastback N claims in-house bragging rights

The Hyundai i30N Fastback has comfortably beaten its hatchback sibling in our latest poll, suggesting it'll be a hit when it arrives in Australia next year. With four doors, a six-speed manual transmission, and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine making 184kW/353Nm in standard trim and 202kW/353Nm in Performance guise, we already have a pretty good idea about how the Fastback will drive...

Poll: 2019 Audi e-tron lands first blow in EV battle

They're both electric, they're both German and they're both official – finally. It appears the more conventional Audi e-tron quattro is leading the electric charge, having toppled the Mercedes-Benz EQC in our latest poll. A handy 66 per cent of respondents to the poll favoured the angular Audi, which is already being produced ahead of a European market launch at the end of this year...

Poll: McLaren 540C wins entry-level supercar battle

The McLaren 540C has taken down the Audi R8 V10 RWS in our latest poll, although it was a close-run thing. Although neither is technically an 'entry-level' car, the two entry points to supercar ownership in their respective ranges recently duked it out in a comparison, with the RWS sneaking out on top...

Poll: 2018 Toyota C-HR pips Kona in a photo finish

Toyota's edgy C-HR crossover has beaten the Hyundai Kona by the barest of margins in our latest poll, winning 50.3 per cent of the 1200 votes recorded. If this was politics, the Hyundai would be demanding a re-count... Both the C-HR and Kona are fighting in the same segment, with angular styling and plenty of bright colours available to help style-focused buyers stand out...

Poll: 2018 Toyota HiLux facelift is on the money

The fresh-faced 2018 Toyota HiLux SR and SR5 represent an improvement over the cars they replace, according to our latest Facebook poll. A handy 59 per cent of respondents favoured the new look, which has been inspired by the Rogue and Rugged special editions launched earlier this year. Along with its fresh face, the HiLux has gained a manual DPF regeneration switch for the second half of the year...

Poll: 2018 Ranger Raptor rolls the Mercedes-Benz X350d

It might not have V6 power, but the Ford Ranger Raptor has held sway over the Mercedes-Benz X350d in our latest poll, winning 55 per cent of the vote. More than 2000 people got involved in the head-to-head, with the Blue Oval's narrow victory suggesting pumped-up looks and crazy off-road ability are worth more than a three-pointed star at the top end of the dual-cab ute market...

Poll: 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is a styling success

It might not have been as comprehensive as the hatchback's poll, but it appears Mercedes-Benz is onto a winner with the styling of its new A-Class sedan. Where a whopping 78 per cent of voters declared the new A-Class hatchback a winner earlier this year, fans of the sedan made up 57 per cent of the 1100 votes in our latest poll...

Poll: 2019 Toyota Supra takes down its BMW twin

The new Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 might have been developed in tandem, but our audience has a clear preference for the rear-drive Toyota. A handy 63 per cent of voters favoured the Supra over the Z4, albeit in pre-production camouflage. Both will be offered with a choice of four- or six-cylinder petrol engines, and both will be rear-wheel drive, but Toyota and BMW are adamant each will have its own character when they launch...

Poll: 2018 Ariel Atom narrowly shades BAC Mono

The new Ariel Atom, complete with an engine from the Honda Civic Type R, has narrowly pipped the BAC Mono for British track-car supremacy in our latest poll. Although it looks similar to the Atom we've come to know and love, the Type R-powered car pictured here really is all new...

Poll: Hyundai Kona crushes Renault Zoe

Renault has opened the Zoe up for public sale, but its price point could prove prohibitive if our latest poll is any guide. Put head-to-head with the Hyundai Kona Electric, the little electric Renault garnered just 16 per cent of the vote. With a starting price of $47,990 before on-road costs, pushing to $49,990 before on-roads in top grade, the Zoe is priced right around where we're expecting the plug-in electric Hyundai to touch down...

Poll: Audi A4 Avant out-wagons the C-Class

The new Audi A4 Avant might look just like the old one, barring a few tweaks to the bumpers, but it's still managed to topple the equally-subtly redesigned C-Class Estate in our latest poll. It was a close-run thing, but 59 per cent of respondents preferred the angular wagon from Ingolstadt over the curvier creation from Stuttgart...

Poll: 2019 Audi A1 is a styling winner

There's not much doubt about this one. The leaner, meaner 2019 Audi A1 is already a winner, as far as styling is concerned. A whopping 77 per cent of respondents to our latest poll favoured the new A1 over its predecessor, an almost identical split to that we saw with the new-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class when it launched. Seems people like new, shiny designs...

Poll: 2019 BMW 8 Series takes down S-Class Coupe

The new BMW 8 Series divided opinion among commenters when it launched, but it's proven a hit with respondents to our latest poll, taking down the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. BMW drew out the reveal of the 8 Series, building up to the full launch at Le Mans with concepts, teasers, and camouflaged cars galore. There were a few leaks along the way, too...

Poll: Nissan Terra takes down Isuzu MU-X

The 2018 Nissan Terra isn't confirmed for the Australian market, but it's managed to take down the sales-leading Isuzu MU-X in our latest online poll. A not-insignificant 58 per cent of respondents preferred the seven-seat Nissan over the MU-X, which is currently topping its class for sales. Nissan head office hasn't actually decided whether to send the Terra to Australia yet...

Poll: 2019 Ford Ranger outdoes X-Class

It doesn't have a three-pointed star on the nose, but the 2019 Ford Ranger has taken down the Mercedes-Benz X-Class in this week's poll. A whopping 65 per cent of voters favoured the updated Ranger, which now packs autonomous emergency braking and a bi-turbo 2.0-litre diesel option, over the first-ever X-Class.  The Ranger line-up tops out at $63,990 before on-roads for the 2...

Poll: 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom holds sway over Cullinan

The first ever Rolls-Royce high-sided vehicle, the Cullinan, might be the new kid on the block, but the Phantom has taken the win in our latest poll. An overwhelming 75 per cent of voters favoured the old-fashioned, three-box Phantom over the nouveau-riche crossover unveiled earlier this year. Both are powered by a 6...
