I drove a Chinese-made MG and… I liked it

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 01:55:32 +0000

For those of you that made it to our recent Sydney open day, you would’ve seen that our garage is an L-shaped mess, with a stack formation of cars that means first in, last out. As a result, when a car needs to get out, it requires half a dozen people to move those behind […]

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 01:36:49 +0000

Porsche has ended production of the Macan S Diesel and Panamera 4S Diesel, but reports of diesel’s demise could be premature. An overnight report from Autocar said the company would stop building its last two diesel models, as part of a “cultural shift” toward plug-in hybrid vehicles. Reports from Europe have suggested the German Transport Ministry (KBA) threatened […]

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:59:38 +0000

Australian pricing and specifications have been announced for the 2018 Subaru Liberty, which maintains its $30,240 starting price despite sharper looks and more technology. From the outside, you’ll be able to distinguish the MY18 Liberty from current models by looking for the revised grille and bumper, new wing mirrors and fresh alloy wheel designs. Liberty 2.5i Premium and […]

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 23:47:50 +0000

The Lotus 3-Eleven 430 has been revealed this week, sporting a decent power bump, enhanced mechanical package, and (super) limited production run. Just 20 examples will be available globally, powered by a supercharged 3.5-litre V6 developing 430hp (321kW) of power and 400Nm of torque. Mated to an open-gated six-speed manual transmission, the beefed-up powertrain slingshots the 920-kilogram racer from 0-100km/h […]

That makes it the most powerful naturally-aspirated production 911 ever built, although […]

Hyundai Kona Electric will join Ioniq EV in Australia, within a year

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:05:56 +0000

Hyundai is poised to offer not one, but two battery electric vehicles (EVs) in Australia before the end of 2018: the (already confirmed) Ioniq hatchback and the recently announced Kona Electric. While the company won’t yet go on record regarding the Kona crossover EV’s Australian future bar the vague line “under review”, sources inside HMCA tell […]

2018 Hyundai i30 SR long-term review, report one: introduction

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:02:45 +0000

Just before the Christmas break we added a new long-termer to the CarAdvice Melbourne garage: the Hyundai i30 SR. It’s been a well-regarded offering since its launch early in 2017, so we decided we’d get a feel for what it’s like living with the current sporting flagship of the Hyundai range – at least for now, until […]

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:02:36 +0000

Seat has teased the upcoming Tarraco, its seven-seat competitor to the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq.

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:01:27 +0000

Fiat Chrysler has recalled 7464 cars for replacement passenger airbags, as part of the ongoing Takata Airbag scandal. The latest campaign includes Jeep Wranglers and Chrysler 300/300C models sold in 2013, fitted with ‘beta’ inflators on the passenger side. All the inflators in this recall are classed as ‘beta’ – less dangerous than ‘alpha’ inflators, but […]

2018 Toyota C-HR review

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:01:26 +0000

The last Toyota I drove with a manual transmission was the 86 sports car, which makes the C-HR compact SUV base model a considerably different proposition. Beyond the fact this is a 100 per cent Toyota product borrowing neither platform nor engine (from Subaru), this is the company’s all-important play in the pint-sized SUV segment […]

2018 Holden Equinox LS+ v Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport comparison

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:01:17 +0000

Holden thinks it finally has a convincing mid-sized SUV, addressing a major gap in its range. The model is called the Equinox, and the company calls it “Australia’s most user-friendly SUV”. But if the now full-importer brand wants to make a splash in one of the market’s key segments, it’ll need to stack up against […]
