2021 Hyundai i30 N Is Even Better

SkyActiv-X Mazda 3 and CX-30
The SkyActiv-X engine was all the rage about a year ago when the first ever compression ignition petrol option was installed in a Mazda.

Hennessey Goliath – Taken Too Far?
We love ourselves some UTEs here in Australia, but Americans seem to be on another level when it comes to these vehicles. Long gone are the days when they were only workhorses, designed to be affordable and durable. Today we have luxury UTEs, like the few we reviewed recently, or even performance ones like the lovely Ranger Raptor – yes, it’s lovely even with that engine, deal with it.

2021 Audi Q5 Sportback – Yet another Coupeish SUV
It’s been a while since the BMW X6 made cumbersome SUVs less practical, and apparently, we love that. With so many SUV models with more stylish rooflines and less boot space and rear headroom, Audi was bound to follow.

Why doesn’t everyone drive an EV? Well, unfortunately, there are still a few problems. Could fuel cell electric vehicles such as hydrogen cars offer the answer? If so what are the current limitations stopping Hydrogen cars from becoming mainstream?

2019 Mitsubishi ASX Review
A SQUARE box is regarded as the most efficient use of space, and I thought Mitsubishi wanted to emphasise that in its latest ASX.
2019 Mazda CX-3 Akari review
AKARI has a Swahili ring to it and most folk from East Africa would mentally connect it with askari. But it’s Japanese for ‘light’ and has nothing to do with East African soldiers, or a bank in Pakistan.
MX-5 RF takes joy to new level
FROM the outset Mazda played a game of poker to see how the market would react to its little pure sports car.
Forester axes diesels
WHY confuse potential buyers with a choice of various engines and gearboxes?
Mazda’s CX-8 no fairytale
GOLDILOCKS would have loved a Mazda CX-8. It’s bigger than a CX-5, smaller than a CX-9, and as she might have said in the famous Three Bears story, it’s ‘just right.’
Odyssey shows shades of luxury
WELL, the sleek people mover had us foxed. We collected a shiny black one, drove for an hour and parked while we had coffee. When we emerged, it had changed to purple.
