2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

2018 Nissan Qashqai review

The facelifted 2018 Nissan Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

Ute comparison 2018: Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-MAX v Mazda BT-50 v Volkswagen Amarok

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

Ute mega test: How do the tubs stack up?

They’re more likely to carry dirty nappies and road bikes than a bale of hay, but all eight of the cars on our 2018 dual-cab mega test are, you know, dual-cab utes. That means they still need to be fit for hard work. Has the transition to a life of luxury undermined the inherent practicality of these one-time work vehicles? Here’s a look at how the tray on each stacks up...

Ute mega test: Bluetooth comparison

In such a competitive segment, there can be a lot to take in when purchasing your next ute. As a result, Bluetooth user-friendliness and quality often gets overlooked, but generally, it is one of the most used features for drivers - especially tradies - as a lot of business calls are conducted while on the move...

Nissan exits Australian Supercar Championship to focus on SUVs, EVs

Nissan Australia has confirmed it will not renew its contract with Kelly Racing to compete in the Australian Supercar Championship, exiting the series at the end of 2018 after six years in the game. It has been known for at least a year that Nissan had been in discussion on whether it would continue with the series, but the change in leadership last August – when Australian Richard Emery was replaced as CEO by Canadian Stephen Lester – may have been the final nail...

2012 Nissan Leaf review

Our family of four, with two active sporty teenagers, needed a second car once the sports training daily jigsaw scheduling of getting two kids at either end of town became too much. The old and faithful manual diesel Prado has served us very well, including multiple lengthy off-road expeditions in WA and NT. However, it is not the best tool in the shed to run around town...

2015 Nissan Pulsar SSS review

As someone who works at a car dealership, I was constantly seeing people buy new cars and drive away. So I decided to upgrade from my ’05 Astra to a Nissan SSS Pulsar. As soon as I sat in the vehicle, I felt like I was sitting in a car of luxury with the leather interior and keyless entry with push-start button. I got the Series 2 version with a CVT transmission...

2011 Nissan Maxima 350 ST-S review

Whether sticking to a budget, new or used, or just a means of getting from A to B, you should love your car. It doesn't have to be loved by anyone else, but it should definitely be loved by you, and maybe a small group of enthusiasts somewhere. From a Lada Riva to a Rolls-Royce Phantom, there is love for cars (sedans in this case) of all sizes, build qualities and budgets...

2014 Nissan Navara D22 (4x4) review

I bought a new 2014 D22 Nissan double cab (you can still buy them new where I come from) after doing about 360,000km in my Mitsubishi Colt (Rodeo) 2.8D. The reason was very simple: I'd just got married and was thus cash strapped, and staying close to the sea and surrounded by mountainous dunes, you cannot be caught without a 4x4...
