Q&A: Affordable small SUVs with self-park systems?

Hi Justin, Among compact SUVs with automated park assist systems (either as standard or an option pack) are the Volkswagen T-Cross, Peugeot 2008 GT Line (standard), Renault Captur, Ford Puma and the Skoda Kamiq. In the hopes of making it easier for your mother, I've selected systems that have an automated steering function, to take the hassle out of maneuvering into tricky spaces. Hope that helps! Kez Price: From $28,390 before on-road costs

What kind of car insurance do you need? We break it down

There's little doubt car insurance is a necessity as a driver, but determining the kind of cover you need is where things become a little murkier. And depending on where you live, you may or may not have a choice when it comes to how and where you access your level of cover.

Q&A: What are the best seven-seat, petrol SUVs in Australia?

Hey CarAdvice, My wife wants a new SUV – we have three children and she would like a seven-seater to cart around their friends. I want a petrol as it’s only for use around town. Is it worth waiting for the new Kluger? Would you recommend the Hyundai Santa Fe? What else would you suggest? Thanks! I'd pick the Kia Sorento. The electronic latching system makes access to the third row a breeze, and it's big enough to house an adult comfortably over a short trip. Kids will love it.

What's in a tank of fuel? The cars with the best (and worst) driving range in Australia

While impressive performance, cool technology and a lower pricepoint can all be guiding forces when buying a new car, it's often other elements – like real-world fuel economy – that actually have the greatest effect on your ownership experience. Once you drive away from the dealership, you'll become less preoccupied with those nifty LED tail-lights and more focussed on how many times you have to hit the petrol station in a single week.
