One of my guilty pleasures is sitting down on a quiet evening mid-week and watching some of the dastardly driving deeds exposed on the Dash Cam Owners Australia channel on YouTube. Beyond entertainment, however, the purpose of dash cams is to capture a moment in time as proof of evidence in the...Read more
Matt Campbell is spending six months with the Honda HR-V, to see how it suits his needs as an urban runabout.Read more
Nissan's new Leaf has arrived to spearhead the electric car revolution, but is now the time to switch?Read more
The Mazda2 range has recently seen some big changes, with the facelifted model aiming to offer customers a different sort of car to what it was before. It’s more expensive - prices are up by as much as 25 per cent! - but there’s a lot more standard equipment, some new trim levels, and all of them...Read more
Hats off to Hyundai Australia for offering a mainstream model covering the gamete of petrol-electric hybrid and full zero (tailpipe) emissions powertrain options. Power walking the walk while other new car brands are still just talking the EV talk. The Ioniq, a mid-size, five-seat, five-door hatch...Read more
The world is chock-a-block with enduring mysteries. The Loch Ness Monster, people who consider Taylor Swift's anodyne pop 'classic' material and the eternal descent of global politics. To that I will add (perhaps unkindly), the Mitsubishi ASX . It's old - very old - and competes in a market full of...Read more
As if taking inspiration from the Three Wise Men (seasonal reference for you there), Hyundai has three wise choices for those wishing to dip their toes, so to speak, in the world of electric cars. While we don't have any specific information about the personalities of the famed Magi, we know a lot...Read more
The Audi A1 2020 range offers something for everyone, and in the case of this particular variant, it’s the one you buy if you want as much grunt and gear as you can get. It’s the top-of-the-range Audi A1 40 TFSI model , which gets the zestiest engine, the lengthiest equipment list, and offers...Read more
Eighteen months ago, Hyundai had no electric vehicles on sale. Zip. Zero. Nada. A month ago they had four - three Ioniqs and the Kona EV. Okay, "only" three of them can run purely on electricity only, with the cheapest Ioniq operating as a Prius-style series hybrid. It's been a busy year for...Read more
The Mini Countryman Hybrid - that’s the simplest way to think of this newly added high-riding model. But that’s the car’s short name. Like me - I go by Matt, and this Mini goes by Countryman Hybrid . It’s longer name is Mini Countryman S E All4 PHEV. We’ll be going with the former though this...Read more
Forget the Volkswagen Beetle - could the Tesla Model 3 be the new People’s Car? I’ll leave you to join the dots between the men behind each of the two vehicles in question, but the Tesla Model 3 is the first ‘affordable’ EV from the breakout US brand. Affordable is relative, of course - and we...Read more
Sometimes the future is a hard sell. Among today’s reality of ‘inconvenient truths’, the fact that you’ll have to plug in and charge your car in the foreseeable future seems to be one which people hang on. “It’s inconvenient” or “it takes too long” are the leading complaints. But, you can actually...Read more
The last time I drove a Toyota Corolla hybrid was a couple of years ago when I tested on by one by taking it 400km north from Sydney to a meeting of old cars with giant petrol engines, otherwise knows as a hot rod run, a pilgrimage to worship at the shortened exhaust of the combustion engine. The...Read more
It’s not quite enough for Hyundai to come after the share of the hatchback market once dominated by Japanese automakers in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Hyundai is now at the top of its game, and it’s rampant success has it coming after even the most niche of market segments. Not only does its Ioniq look kind...Read more
We all know that X means buried treasure in the world of children’s book pirates, but it’s looking like it could hold similar relevance for what lies under the bonnet of future Mazdas. We first officially heard about Mazda’s industry-leading Skyactiv-X technology at the brand’s Global Tech Forum in...Read more
If I had told you even just a few years ago that one of Nissan’s most promising vehicles, and one the brand partially hangs its future on, was an all-electric hatchback, you probably wouldn’t have believed me. But here we are, and after already having been on sale for years in Europe, the second-...Read more
Tree-huggers get a bad rap, especially when they're accused of driving Priuses, a particularly targeted form of abuse inspired by the Malibu movie set. Hollywood types who stepped out of gas-guzzling private jets to tool around humbly in Toyota's trailblazing hybrid used to include dapper chaps...Read more
The entry-level model in the 2019 Toyota RAV4 range is the GX model, which can be had with a choice of different power options. The opening drivetrain for the GX is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which is only available in front-wheel drive layout , but can be had with either a six-speed...Read more
The second-tier model in the 2019 Toyota RAV4 range is the GXL, which could well be be the pick of the range based on its price and spec, as well as the fact it can be had with a choice of different power options. The entry-level drivetrain for the GXL is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine,...Read more
