The name is naff but doesn’t stop people from buying Nissan’s Qashqai small SUV. It’s been around for yonks, initially as the Dualis in 2WD and 4WD, petrol and diesel. Now the latest Nissan Qashqai has cut right to the chase and is only available in front wheel drive 2.0 litre petrol catering precisely to the people who like [...]

2018 Jaguar XF 25d R-Sport Review

By |2019-06-30T15:34:42+10:00January 29th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Jaguar Reviews|0 Comments

The 2018 Jaguar XF battles against some well-established and popular offerings in the large premium sedan race, think Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and the Audi A7. But there's something the big Jag has that the others don't...a true unique personality and feel. Exterior What a gorgeous looking medium/large four door sedan but not unexpected as it came off the [...]

By |2019-06-30T15:35:22+10:00January 26th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Holden Reviews|1 Comment

The UK made Astra Sportwagon joins the Astra sedan, and the Polish-made hatch, in Holden’s new car launch assault. The new NG Commodore, Acadia SUV, and HSV’s Camaro will round out this year’s cavalcade. Until the NG Commodore is launched, heavy is the head of Astra, as it wears Holden’s passenger car crown alone. First, a few titbits about Astra: [...]

HAVAL, the big-selling Chinese auto giants have a seriously refreshed and seriously capable seven-seat large 4x4/SUV on their hands in the just arrived 2018 HAVAL H9.

Most, if not all, new cars come with roadside assist. This package supplied as part of the purchase of your brand spanking new pride and joy. A friend told me the other day that he didn’t need to maintain his car because he got is serviced, and had roadside assist. Dear me, have we really come to this? A [...]

Renault’s Fab Captur

By |2018-01-24T20:11:49+10:00January 24th, 2018|Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Renault Reviews|0 Comments

Renault is a brand which sails under a lot of radars, but I think it deserves to have more buyer’s bums on seats, if only for a test drive. Captur is Renault’s baby SUV and is built on the same platform as the Clio (and the unlovable Nissan Juke). The 88kw/190Nm 4 cylinder turbo petrol engine drives the [...]

Yes, I would love to own a Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series V8 turbo-diesel, who wouldn’t? But the price is a bit of a stopper, more than a bit actually. Toyota makes it easy on a wannabe 'Cruiser 200 Series owner buy offering the smaller Prado which is a worthy little brother to the Big Kahuna and is still a [...]
