2019 Renault Megane RS v Civic Type R and Focus RS: Hot hatch encore!

Well, you asked for it. When we ran our last hot hatch comparison, Renault had rudely not yet launched its new Megane RS in Australia. So, we had to leave it out, and we wound up with winners in the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus RS. But now the Megane RS is here... can it dethrone our heroes? We went back to the track to find out.

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

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 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...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

For every positive thing about this car, if I try hard enough, I can find a negative. But I'd be nit-picking. On the whole, the car is one hell of a package.

If you daily-drive the car like I've done for the past 2 or so years, and you should be genuinely happy if you see anything below 12 litres per 100 kilometres...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

I purchased the Ford Focus RS in January 2018 after compiling a shortlist of five cars that met my criteria of a fast, practical (4-door) daily driver that was turbocharged and fun to drive. After test driving the Honda Civic Type R, Kia Stinger GT, VW Golf R, Subaru STi and the Focus RS, the car that I felt was the most fun to drive and left me wanting more was the Focus RS...

2016 Ford Focus ST review

I bought this car as I wanted to upgrade from my VW Golf TDI 77. The Golf had several issues and I thought it was time to get something a little bit more exciting in my life… at a reasonable cost...

2006 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo review

Do you wish your daily driver added a bit more oomph to your commute, while still offering the practicality to get from A to B? Does your current ride no longer spark joy?
