This is one of my favourite cars, ever. There are 3 models, Dynamic, SE Dynamic, and our range topping HSE Dynamic. We are driving the range tipping HSE Dynamic, with extras. It doesn’t have Range Rover’s adjustable floaty air suspension, but it does have an adjustable roof. It folds completely away in just 18seconds, and looks like a Tonka [...]

Enter the 1.6 for $35,990. Outside, the 1.6 is all but indistinguishable from the more powerful WRX clones. Under the bonnet is [...]

2018 Skoda Octavia VRS 245 launch review Skoda has sold 5,000 cars this year so far. They’re proud of it too, and so they should be. It is a brand that flies under the radar, but is one that motoring journalists love. It is pure, value-packed, fun. It has all the quality and innovation of VW, and perhaps even [...]

November 22, 2017 Search for: 2017 Toyota Camry SX We drove the Camry at its local launch and liked it. It tends to a bit of understeer when pushed, but the electronic nannies all keep things tidy.
