LDV T60 Mega Tub review (Sponsored)

Sponsored by: LDV There's no escaping the rise of the double-cab ute. Part family car, part utility tool, is there anything they can't do? Well, yeah... See, the back of a dual-cab ute is a little bit limited in size and if your weekend pursuits need a bit more space, you might find that your do-it-all car can't actually do it all...

Budget van comparison: Citroen Berlingo v LDV G10 v Volkswagen Caddy

Buying an affordable workhorse van can mean some compromises – but depending on if you're willing to take a gamble on an emerging brand, you might not need to sacrifice space for price. As such, we’ve brought two well-known small vans – the Volkswagen Caddy, Australia’s best-selling model in the segment, and the Citroen Berlingo, a go-to second option – and the much larger, but also cheaper, LDV G10...

LDV T60 Trailrider ute gets new diesel engine, rest of the range to follow

The LDV T60 Trailrider ute has been given a modest power boost with an all-new turbo diesel engine that will eventually be introduced across the rest of the Chinese pick-up range. The 2.0-litre single turbo diesel four-cylinder (120kW/375Nm) that has been designed in-house replaces the 2.8-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder (110kW/360Nm) that shared its DNA with Italy’s VM Motori...

2017 LDV G10 MPV review: Converted into a tradie van!

UPDATE: Featured on this week's podcast, we've brought this review forward to give you another look! I'm a tradie and my previous work cars have been 4x4 twin-cab utes. This time around I was doing a lot more highway driving, so ride, comfort and low NVH were high on my priority list. Enter the LDV G10 people mover...

2018 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

Did some research and after careful consideration including looking at used utes, this ute is fantastic and easily the best value for money. Other used utes with 80,000km on the clock and three years older were asking the same price as the LDV, so it was a no brainer. The five-year warranty was also a big incentive and with a $5000 trade in of my rusted out Ford Ranger, I drove it away for $28,000; with an added tow bar...

2017 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

Great vehicle – the ride is a little stiff, but smooths a little after a bit of use. It rides better with a load, and when towing I press the power button and it performs as well as the best. The cabin controls are in all the right places. It pays to read the book, as with the new technology it's good to know what the limitations are – such as blind-spot detection etc...

2018 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

My name is Sam and I own an LDV T60 Pro manual. I purchased the car to replace my old work vehicle. I’m in the electrical industry and I travel about 1200km per week of mixed driving from job to job, so fuel consumption and reliability are very important to me. The T60 has now got 15,000km since I bought it in January, and so far has proven to be a very reliable addition to my business...
