Peter grew up in a house in Western Sydney where automotive passion extended to white Sigmas and Magnas. At school he discovered "those" magazines that weren't to be found in the house. Magazines that offered him the chance to sit in the driver's seat of cars he’d never even heard of let alone seen. His path to rebellion was set - he would love cars, know cars and want to write about cars, much to his family’s disgust. They wanted him to be a teacher. He bought a series of terrible cars and lusted after Ford Escort Cosworths, the Alfa Romeo 164 Q and occasionally kicked himself for selling his 1977 Alfa GTV.

I'm sure someone else came up with the phrase micro SUV, because I'm not that original, but they're an intriguing idea.

The Mitsubishi Outlander has been kicking around dealerships now for the better part of a decade, and it will most likely reach the full 10 years before it's meaningfully replaced. The 2012 "original" was a very different-looking car when it landed, with Mitsubishi piling on update after update to...Read more
The Kia Sportage is one of the brand's most famous nameplates, battling hard in the hotly-contested mid-size SUV segment. Peter Anderson is spending three months with one to see if it's the bargain it appears to be.Read more
