Matt Campbell

Managing Editor - Head of Video

Matt Campbell has been at the forefront of automotive media for more than a decade, working not only on car reviews and news, but also helping manage automotive outputs across print, online, video and audio.

After completing his media degree at Macquarie University, Matt was an intern at a major news organisation as part of the motoring team, where he honed his skills in the online automotive reviews and news space. He did such a good job there they put him on full time, and since then he has worked across different automotive media outlets, before starting with CarsGuide in October 2017.

At CarsGuide Matt has helped shape the video output of the business, while also playing a key role in management behind the scenes, and helping in-market new car buyers make the right choice by continually evolving CarsGuide's comparison reviews. Driving more than 100 cars a year seemed like a dream to Matt when he first started out, but now it's all just part of the job - a job he loves and plans to stay in for a long time to come.

Matt is also an expert in used car values, as he's always on the hunt for a bargain - be it a project beater or a prime example of the breed. He currently owns a 2001 Audi TT quattro and a 2007 Suzuki Jimny JLX.

Update two: The biggest question so far is whether the WRX wagon deserves the badge or not...

If there’s a relatively unknown quantity in the electric car landscape, it’s the Lexus UX 300e EV. This small electric SUV has luxury in spades but with a higher price and less EV driving range than plenty of rivals, it makes you wonder who this car is really for. I spent a few weeks with one to...Read more
Update one: The WRX wagon works for mums and dads When I attended the launch of the new-generation Subaru WRX , I was in the minority in my enthusiasm for the Sportswagon. Most of my fellow car-enthusiast-first, auto-journalist-second colleagues were canning the way the wagon didn’t have the same...Read more
