Medium SUV Comparison : Ford Kuga v Mazda CX-5 v Subaru Forester v Volkswagen Tiguan

Sun, sand, surf... Australians love nothing more than going to the beach. Unless of course it’s a Saturday afternoon where we drape ourselves in team colours and cheer on our side to either cross the try line or kick through the middle posts...

Medium SUV Comparison : Jeep Cherokee v Mazda CX-5 v Toyota RAV4 v Nissan X-Trail v Ford Kuga v Subaru Forester v Hyundai ix35 v Honda CR-V v Mitsubishi Outlander v Kia Sportage

Assembled for this mega-test are 10 models that represent one-third of total SUV volume in Australia – and that’s without including sales for the newest contender here and catalyst for this test, the Jeep Cherokee. It looks bold, it’s available only with petrol engines (for now), and it’s priced under $40,000 to compete with the mainstream...

2014 Ford Kuga Review

On a recent trip to the USA I won the Rental Car Lottery. As the attendant at the rental counter handed me the keys I think I may have wet myself a little as I read “2014 Ford Escape” printed on the keyring. Well aware of Fords reputation for outstanding chassis balance, ahead of me lay four hours of tight, twisty roads, crawling up and over Colorado's independence pass from Aspen to Pikes Peak like the Rocky Mountains central nervous system, all without another vehicle in sight...

That was three weeks ago and we are STILL waiting because there are no Continental 235/45 R19 tyres to fit the vehicle in Australia at the present time and no-one can tell us when they will be coming into the country...

2014 Ford Kuga Titanium (AWD) Review

I enjoy driving this car but have had lots of trouble with the electrical system (radio, rear camera etc) shutting down when the outside temperature gets 'too high' as in over 35 degrees. Ford tells me this happens with all Kugas and that there is no fix for it at this stage. I have also had problems with the sat nav not producing the correct address and having some lag...
