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...

Honda Civic Type R meets S2000 on track - video

The latest Honda Civic Type R has already established itself as one of the meanest, quickest hatchbacks going around – then again, it would want to be, given its storied lineage. Along with a history of quick, front-drive hatchbacks, Honda has the S2000 in its back catalogue. Sure, it's a rear-wheel drive convertible, but the idea of putting one head-to-head with the latest Type R is still tasty...

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...

Civic Type R v Defender V8 drag race - video

The Honda Civic Type R has already proven itself performance king among front-drive hot hatches, so now it's looking for bigger fish to fry. In what's one of the weirdest match-ups in drag race history, Top Gear has lined up the UK-built hatch against a Land Rover Defender – what?! However, this isn't just any Land Rover Defender, in fact, it's the 297kW/515Nm Defender Works V8, a bespoke version of the iconic off-roader created by Jaguar Land Rover to commemorate the model's 70th anniversary...
