Why Tasmania is Australia's road trip heaven

The great Australian road trip is dying. I fondly remember my family holidays being bookended by big drives, sometimes over a couple of days. All family members, along with their gear, crammed into a small space for hours on end... what could possibly go wrong? It’s the sort of thing that will quickly make or break family ties...

Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ: You don't mess with imperfection

As the most enthusiastic motoring aficionados descend into a collective delirium about whether Toyota’s revived six-cylinder sports coupe really is deserving of the Supra name, given its heavy reliance on BMW componentry, it seems the Supra’s baby brother has stepped out of the firing line for a moment...

2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i-L review

You may not look twice at it, and you’re unlikely to give it a second thought. In fact, the Subaru Forester is a touch unremarkable. That’s perfect too – some family cars just need to be family cars, and this one does a really good job of it.

2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i review

Subaru's ever-popular Forester is all new, even if you blink and miss it. But is there more goodness below the skin in the base 2.5i version to make it a more appealing urban family runabout?

2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i-S review

When Subaru says the Impreza is all-new, it really means it. How do the car's fresh platform and techy cabin stack up in top-spec 2.0i-S guise?

Drift Cadet: Learning how to drift... Without ruining your car

Drifting is a stack of fun, but it increases wear and tear on your engine, your tyres and the gearbox. But, there's now an answer to the age-old problem of learning how to drift without gradually destroying your car, and that answer is to do it in somebody else's car...

2019 Subaru Forester review

Flashiness takes a back seat to thoughtfulness in the 2018 Subaru Forester. It won’t set your pulse racing, but it's as honest, practical and unpretentious as ever, and still happy getting off the beaten path every once in a while.

2018 Subaru Levorg 2.0 GT-S long-termer: Introduction

The Subaru Levorg has always struck me as a car with a bit of an identity crisis. Is it a WRX wagon with another name? A luxury estate with a proudly mainstream badge? Neither, really. But in an era of unmatched homogeneity, anything that's hard to define or put into a box is intriguing. Rivals are few and far between...

2018 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

The rugged little Subaru XV treads a familiar path, but in many ways it's the best small crossover you can buy, despite a maudlin engine and shallow boot.
