Jeep Wrangler: You don’t mess with imperfection

I never really liked the previous Jeep Wrangler. I liked what it represented, but the final execution left a little too much to be desired. That doesn’t suggest the old Wrangler was a bad thing. Used as intended, the previous generation JK Wrangler was, and still is, rather brilliant – at one specific thing...

Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Overland review

Buying a Wrangler isn't a decision based on a strong form of logic. It comes from another place; the other part of our body that has a say in these kinds of decisions. You’re looking at one because you want it, not because it makes sense from a practical or sensible point of view. The good news is the JL Wrangler is much improved over the JK, especially the interior, infotainment and general refinement...

Jeep Wrangler: Highest to lowest, choose your path!

Sponsored by Jeep If you're thinking about a road trip, your choice of vehicle is important. This is not something for your low-slung sports car, especially if you're heading into the centre of the continent. You need a bit of ground clearance, and either an AWD or 4WD system will help with the incredible variety of conditions you’ll encounter along the way...

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon v Toyota LandCruiser v Suzuki Jimny off-road comparison

Here we have the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Suzuki Jimny and Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier'. Which is most capable and our favourite off-road?

2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk v Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 comparison

Going off-road is great fun. Something off-road capable can open up a lot of doors to places you were otherwise unable to visit. It changes a vehicle from being a conduit between A and B, into a ticket to adventure. But, having a proper 4WD does come with compromises. Take it from me: while great off-road, my own 4WD is abhorrent to park, loud and noisy, and is eons away from being a capable commuter...

2019 Hyundai Tucson Elite petrol AWD v Jeep Compass Limited petrol

You could say Jeep needs a new Compass. The US 4x4 brand has lost its way in recent years, haemorrhaging sales locally for three successive years. It hasn’t helped that its Cherokee model that launched in 2013 has struggled to fire in the all-important medium-SUV segment...

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8 (4x4) review

If you are a V8 or muscle car fan, but love the practicality of a SUV, then step this way, I have found a car you might want to check out: The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Since I was a kid, I was brought up in a Holden-dominant family, which was what sparked my love for HSV. So as soon as I turned 18, I bought my first HSV; a ‘98 VT GTS...

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (4x4) review

Stepping into my new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited after years of driving a 2003 T30 Nissan X-Trail definitely highlighted the advancements that have swept through the car industry in the past 10 years...

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4x2) review

If you've ever compared the market on mid-priced SUVs you will know its a hot segment, and the competition is growing in the area. When we purchased the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo we had a reasonably flexible budget to work with and could afford to go up to a luxury SUV if we needed to get the mod cons and comfort we wanted...

2018 Jeep Compass Limited (4x4) review

I bought this car because I always wanted to own and drive a Jeep, and the diesel Compass ticked every box on paper. In driving and ownership for nine months, though, it's been a bit of a mixed bag. Performance is what you would expect from a diesel: a bit slow to get up to speed, but holds that speed at low RPM, which makes it very economical on the highway (consumption goes below 5L/100km)...
