2020 Hyundai Ioniq Premium v Nissan Leaf comparison

Electric vehicle (EV) sales in Australia have been glacial compared to what we’ve seen in similarly developed markets across Europe, Asia and North America. Australians who are keen to make the switch face impediments that do not exist for people in Oslo, Tokyo, or San Francisco...

2020 Honda Civic Type R v Hyundai i30 Fastback N comparison

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a striking proposition. While the hatch lines up squarely against a raft of familiar hot hatch luminaries such as the Golf GTI and Megane RS, its longer and slinkier sibling is harder to pigeonhole. We’ve already pitched it against a fellow outsider in the form of Skoda’s criminally under-appreciated Octavia RS...

Medium SUV off-road test: Toyota RAV4, Holden Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Renault Koleos, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

Best medium family SUV 2019: Holden Equinox v Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson v Kia Sportage v Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Renault Koleos v Subaru Forester v Toyota RAV4 v Volkswagen Tiguan

Ten of the best and most popular mid-sized SUVs go head-to-head, but there can only be one winner.

2019 Hyundai i30 Elite v Mazda 3 G20 Evolve v Toyota Corolla SX comparison

A showdown between Australia's three most popular small cars, each tested in mid-range form, priced at about $31K on the road.

2019 Hyundai Kona v Honda HR-V comparison

With a sprinkling of added freshness injected into ranges in the latter half of 2018, it’s high time we matched up two perennial favourites of the trendy small-crossover set: the Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona. Be it the prolific wider choice on offer in segment or the variety offered within each marque’s particular range, the two variants we’ve lined up here haven’t had much of shake through the CarAdvice garages either...

2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N v Skoda Octavia RS Sedan comparison

Hot hatches that are not hatches? Well, not quite – let's call a spade a spade here. The Hyundai i30 Fastback N and Skoda Octavia RS Sedan are, despite their official names, both hatchbacks. More obviously, though, both comfortably fit the definition of ‘hot’ more readily...

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 Holden Acadia v Hyundai Santa Fe comparison

There comes a time in many families when the call is made: ‘We need a bigger car’. You’re a bit fed up with jamming all of your gear into something small, or the imminent arrival of another human into your clan will spur the decision. While smaller vehicles are cheaper to buy, run and drive, they don’t suit all purposes...

2019 Hyundai Tucson v Skoda Karoq comparison

Both the Skoda Karoq 110TSI and Hyundai Tucson Highlander are built around the same ‘utility vehicle’ philosophy, but despite differences in their makeup, they arrive at very similar conclusions. We’ve put together the highest spec of each available in Australia to see if Europe’s challenger brand, Skoda, has what it takes to topple the might of Hyundai...

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...
