It isn’t often I get in to a hot hatch with anticipation, but Peugeot’s 308 GTi 270 is one such peach. It was driven through some of the most beautiful countryside Australia has to offer. Our tour through New South Wales included a stint on a race track, some fairly terrible B roads, and a short section of dirt [...]

2018 Peugeot 308 GTi 270 Road Test, Review Peugeot’s 308 GTi is one of my favourite French cars of all time. I’ve owned several Peugeot and Citroen cars and they always leave a smile. The brand is the world’s oldest, a fact most people don’t know. 270 refers to horse power, a term Australia hasn’t used since shortly after [...]

Kia got the Stinger but Hyundai got the i30N so who’s the winner in this family feud? Neither, they both did well in the race for pace with the Stinger appealing to a completely different audience to the i30N. Having driven both, I’d gladly have either. The twin turbo, rear wheel drive, V6 Stinger is a GT style ‘sedan’ [...]

Many people don’t know this, but Peugeot is the world’s oldest car brand. Peugeot has a hard earned reputation for ride and handling. With their sporty models, that reputation extends to grace and pace. The inevitable comparison to Peugeot’s venerable 205GTI could damage both name plates were it not for the fact that the 208GTI is such a peach. [...]

With its strong lines, and a slightly odd name, Octavia provides a more spacious alternative to a hot hatch. The RS245 is the hottest of the Octavias and has the 180kw drive train of the Golf GTI, my favourite hot hatch. Despite being on sale here for several years, ŠKODA continues to a brand that only a few canny [...]

The Kia Stinger is epitome of what the South Korean brand is capable of producing right now. What an amazing car; full of power, style, comfort and luxury, it’s a complete package for a grand tourer sedan. I was already impressed by the smaller engine version of the Stinger I test drove last year and now the Stinger GT [...]
