2019 Volkswagen Polo Beats review

It's not cheap, given the same fundamental powertrain and transmission package is available for less, but the Beats offers all the Polo's best assets in a package that'll no doubt appeal strongly to people who want to stand out a bit more than is possible in the Comfortline or R-Line...

Lamborghini Huracan EVO review: Is this the new superhero?

It would be a travesty to call the Huracan EVO anything but a holistic triumph. Its myriad dynamic systems are in perfect balance with the chassis, and somehow it all comes together to provide one of the most exhilarating driving experiences I’ve had in a while. Bravo.

Review: 2019 Mazda 3 first drive

After a brief drive on foreign roads in cars that aren’t quite exactly like what we’ll end up with, is the 2019 Mazda 3 still positioned to be a segment favourite?
