Coupe-style small SUVs have plenty of fans because these vehicles are aimed at striking a balance between sporty good looks and real-world functionality. Whether they actually achieve that goal is usually a matter of personal opinion. Audi’s Q3 Sportback line-up includes an upper-spec 40 TFSI S...Read more
Those who can afford to own a large premium SUV are well accustomed to travelling in style and supreme comfort. It’s a select mob of folks who demand the absolute best – or at the very least an elegant approximation of the absolute best. The Lexus LX570 , the brand’s flagship SUV, is a fine example...Read more
At face value, luxury SUVs might seem like they have quite limited appeal and even more limited capabilities when it comes to actually doing anything other than driving on smooth city streets – but the reality is much more complicated than that. Vehicles like BMW’s X5 look city-slick, suit urban...Read more
The Holden Colorado is a quiet achiever in the ute market: it has a solid rep as a work-and-play vehicle, generally records positive results in objective editorial reviews and comparisons, and it sells well. But how does a Z71 do as a tow vehicle? Read on.Read more
The Mitsubishi Triton GLX-R dual-cab is a new Triton variant, which fits above the GLX+ and below the GLS in the ute’s nine-strong dual-cab line-up. The GLX-R gets alloy wheels, fog lamps, a silver grille, chrome bumper edging, and chrome door mirrors and handles. In the past we’ve liked the Triton...Read more
The Toyota LandCruiser Prado is hugely popular. It’s been around for donkey’s years but it’s still one of Australia’s top-selling large 4WD wagons. It has a great reputation as an off-road touring platform, because it is so capable, so roomy (great for fitting all of your camping gear) and it is so...Read more
It’s easy as a mainland Aussie to be familiar with Tasmania’s most notable...Read more
Mid-size SUVs are very popular and the Honda CR-V is one of the segment's real contenders. The revised Honda CR-V line-up is expected here mid-year, but until then you might consider this: the CR-V VTi-S all-wheel drive . It's a roomy five-seater wagon that looks pretty good and has plenty of...Read more
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has been updated for 2020: it has Mitsubishi's ‘Dynamic Shield' front grill, it's had a slap and tickle on its rear end – with shorter tail-light sections the most noteworthy tweak – and it also has a revised media unit inside. It's been nice to drive in the past – on...Read more
The Isuzu D-Max is one of the quiet achievers in the Australian Ute market. It sells pretty well – it was top five of the best-selling utes in Australia last year – with 16,892 sold – and it has a stack of fans. This is a proper purpose-built ute – and that's refreshing in this day and age. But how...Read more
The Holden Colorado Z71 is a lifestyle-accessorised version of the Colorado. It has stickers, a sailplane sports bar and a stack of other Z71-specific gear … but underneath it’s still a Colorado. And there’s nothing wrong with that – the Colorado itself is a quiet achiever in the ute market: it has...Read more
Timing, they say, is everything. But it cuts both ways. A group of...Read more
There's a lot of hype about the Gladiator, Jeep's first ute in a long time, and there's a lot riding on its anticipated success. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia is hoping the Gladiator can take on Australia's segment leaders, such as the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, or at least rise to...Read more
The LDV T60 was rather a pleasant surprise at its Australian launch in 2017. It was a Chinese-built dual-cab ute that actually looked pretty good, seemed well-built, drove nicely, was adequately capable off-road and it was sharply priced and well-equipped. Now, a few years down the track, the big...Read more
The Nissan Patrol has long been considered a real adventure machine, a large 4WD wagon with a rock-solid rep, and the capability to tackle tough terrain. It had been in a long-time tussle with the Toyota LandCruiser for large SUV supremacy in Australia’s – but that all changed when the Nissan...Read more
When I first reviewed the Toyota Fortuner – way back in 2016 when it was launched here – I thought it was pretty good: a solid, if unspectacular, seven-seat 4WD. For a ute-based wagon it wasn’t a game-changer, but it was a decent effort. Toyota’s given the Fortuner a few upgrades since it's launch...Read more
Much has been penned about the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon’s effectiveness off-road – and we’ve been responsible for a fair chunk of that, having done plenty of hard-core four-wheel driving in it – but we haven’t towed with it … until now. So, how did it do? To find out, read on.Read more
The Ram 1500 diesel is finally here. This is arguably the big pick-up truck Aussies have been waiting for, because until now, if you wanted a Ram 1500 you had to have it with a petrol engine. But the launch of the 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel could well be the answer to plenty of people's...Read more
Hybrid campers are no longer a new development in caravanning and camping. We've been seeing trailers like them, in some form or another, for nearly two decades. The concept is straightforward: hybrid campers offer some of the best comforts of a caravan (solid walls, proper beds, little to no set-...Read more
