2017 Volkswagen Golf R review

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 01:58:11 +0000

It could have been the late Eighties (might have been the Nineties actually) but before GIFs and memes, there was a popular term – ‘blinding flash of the obvious’. BFO it would be now wouldn’t it? Well, I’ve got a BFO for you. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf R is excellent. Yeah I know, surprise, surprise. […]

The upcoming Hyundai ‘FE’ fuel-cell SUV has been revealed in near-production form in Seoul this week, ahead of its official launch “early next year”.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:30:15 +0000

Ford has issued a recall for 42,988 examples of its Focus small car built between 2011 and 2015, over concerns the fuel tank could crack and leak. The Blue Oval reports that certain vehicles “under particular environmental conditions” may ingest excessive levels of dust, which may block the carbon canister during a purge cycle, causing the fuel tank […]

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:28:51 +0000

The updated 2018 Toyota Prius C has landed in Australia, bringing a revised look inside and out, along with extra equipment for marginal price increases across the range.

Left-hand drive supercars to be legal in Oz by 2019 – cheers Mr Turnbull

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 23:06:20 +0000

Buried in a Turnbull government announcement yesterday was a gem that’s set to greenlight the import of left-hand-drive hypercars into Australia, by 2019, for driving on public roads. The press release by the minister for urban infrastructure, Paul Fletcher MP, detailed a revised bill set to be submitted to parliament by the end of the […]

German chancellor keen on petrol and diesel sales ban

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 20:34:33 +0000

German chancellor Angela Merkel is in favour of banning the sale of new petrol and diesel powered cars by 2030 or 2040, but her government isn’t yet willing to set a firm date for the issue. In an interview with SuperIllu, excerpts from which were released earlier this week, Merkel said, “I cannot name a […]

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 18:58:35 +0000

Genesis, luxury subsidiary of Korean manufacturer Hyundai, plans to launch two SUVs locally by around 2020, while the G70 and G80 sedans will be the first cabs off the rank early next year.

2018 Peugeot 3008 review

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 14:01:32 +0000

Three hours and forty-two minutes. That’s a lot of time, enough to fly from the east coast of Australia to New Zealand, or listen to an entire debate in the Senate about how to waste $122m of tax payer’s money. The choices are endless. For us, though, that’s how long we sat back as our […]



Government changes direction on private ‘parallel’ import plan

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 07:51:23 +0000

Plans to loosen laws preventing ‘parallel’ vehicle imports have largely been shelved as part of the federal government’s re-jigged Road Vehicle Standards Bill, designed to take effect in 2019. As you may recall, representatives from the Turnbull Government early last year flagged changes to the extant Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1987, to allow parallel ‘grey’ importation of near-new cars […]

Audi S5 v BMW 440i v Infiniti Q60 Red Sport comparison

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 04:01:24 +0000

“Middleweight” mightn’t be the description a buyer might use for a prospective six-figure motoring purchase, but when shopping premium German brands that’s the hard reality, be it size or stature. You’ve skipped past ‘small’ straight to ‘medium’, hurdled the $50k-something base car tip-in point, bound up the model range ladder past bare essentials into indulgence […]

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 03:04:25 +0000

The BMW roadster bound for this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has been teased again this week ahead of its official reveal on August 17.

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 review

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 01:59:45 +0000

While there are truckloads of topics where you mightn’t utter Volkswagen Golf and Porsche 911 in the same breath, they’re kindred compatriots in an important area: both struck successful formulas long ago and have benefited from evolution at the hands of many since. In either case, the term ‘iconic’ is richly deserved and hard won, […]
