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...

How Australia's love of V8s and utes has revived local automotive skills

Australia’s love of V8s and utes is reviving jobs and skills that many feared would be lost forever. Local car manufacturing died two years ago, but from the ashes a new industry has emerged.

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (2WD) review

I’m in my late 60’s and have been considering an SUV for some time, because of the ease of getting in and out, and the elevated driving position. The X-Trail wasn’t on my radar until I drove one - my son’s ST 2.5-litre 7-seater. I was impressed, so when I saw this one advertised I bought it without a second thought...

2010 Nissan 370Z review

I had owned the stunning Nissan 370Z for a very short time. It had always been a car of choice in the current markets against the Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT86, along with the Subaru BRZ. I believe it was aimed for the entry-level sports car market for car enthusiasts and people who’re loyal to the brand...

2001 Nissan Maxima S review

It is a model that I personally fell in love with, and essentially (in my view) it's a forgotten classic in a soon to be forgotten category. Hence this review is to remind every CarAdvice reader of the importance of 4-door sports cars with rear spoilers...

2014 Nissan Micra ST review

I'm an idiot for selling this car. I went on holiday to Adelaide once and had one as a renter and found it a charming little thing to flog around the hills and wineries. I had a tiny driveway entrance at home to deal with, so when it was time to get a car the Micra was top of the list...
