Ford Comparisons

2019 Ford Focus Active v Subaru XV v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack comparison

High-riding hatches, pretend SUVs... whatever you want to call them, the look is taking off around the world. Which of these three is most deserving of your attention?

2019 Ford Everest: 2.0-litre v 3.2-litre comparison

Engines on a whole are on a downsizing trend. What were once sixes are now fours, and fours are threes. Advanced turbocharging and injection systems mean you don’t need big capacity for big power, and you can drag out some extra efficiency at the same time. In the case of the 2019 Ford Everest, we’ve got an instance of five cylinders turning into four, and 3...

Best small car: Ford Focus v Holden Astra v Honda Civic v Hyundai i30 v Kia Cerato v Mazda 3 v Peugeot 308 v Subaru Impreza v Toyota Corolla v Volkswagen Golf

While buyers continue to gravitate toward SUVs, small cars haven’t entirely lost their appeal. They account for about one-in-seven new vehicles sold this year, with this cluster of models forming the vast majority of the segment’s sales. We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota LandCruiser 78 Series GXL comparison

If you're going to blow the best part of 80 grand on some off-road metal, which way should you go?

2019 Ford Focus ST-Line v Hyundai i30 N Line Premium v Kia Cerato GT comparison

Not everyone wants a full-on ‘hot’ hatch. Some people just want something with a bit of poke, contemporary tech and a reasonable price tag packaged into the right body style. It’s actually quite a cluttered segment, full of viable options. We’ve assembled three of the newest here, with a goal of finding the car that balances the key attributes of performance, handling, comfort, tech and value best...

2019 Ford Focus v Volkswagen Golf comparison

When it comes to small cars, Australians have consistently shown their affinity for Japanese models – especially the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3. And in the last decade or so, the love has spread to Korean cars – notably the Hyundai i30. That’s left European contenders such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf – models that perform so outstandingly in their own market (and the UK) – to conduct their own private, best-of-the-rest sales war...

2019 Ford Endura v Mazda CX-8 comparison

Ford Australia has had a hole in its product line-up since October 2016. A 4.89-metre hole to be exact, and it went by the name of Territory. There’s been the Everest, of course, but ute-based SUVs still don’t drive like a car-based SUV, and the Ranger-derived Everest is notably more expensive than the Territory was. A solution, however, has arrived from the US...

2019 Ford Mustang GT v Chevrolet Camaro 2SS comparison

While we’ve said goodbye to the Commodore and Falcon, the muscle car war hasn’t died off completely. For the first time, it’s the traditional US rivals that square off Down Under, with the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS now on sale (albeit in limited numbers) alongside the 2018 Ford Mustang GT...

Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota HiLux Rugged X v Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580 comparison

Australians have always been fond of turning utes into status symbols – once of the two-doored, V8 variety. The market is quite different today, but the fundamental desires for head-turning load-luggers remain. Enter the trio of desirable workhorses you see here: the Ford Ranger Raptor, Toyota HiLux Rugged X and Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580...

2019 Renault Megane RS v Ford Focus RS v Honda Civic Type R comparison

Does the perfect hot hatch exist? Is your perfect hot hatch someone else's nightmare ride? The latter scenario is probably more likely, but to put the theory to the test, we’ve pitted the all-new Renault Megane RS280 against the reigning champs from our recent hot hatch mega test...

2018 Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost v Mazda 6 Atenza turbo comparison

Medium-sized passenger cars, like many other ‘traditional’ segments, are on the nose with Aussie buyers as SUVs continue to star in the sales charts. That makes buyers of cars like the Ford Mondeo and Mazda 6 real winners, with once humdrum medium sedans pushing into near-premium territory as a play to gain buyer attention...
