2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed Review

By |2019-06-29T21:07:45+10:00June 26th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Mitsubishi Reviews, SUV Medium|0 Comments

Mitsubishi offers three versions of the small Eclipse Cross SUV, two with front wheel drive and one with all wheel drive. A CVT transmission is standard across all three  with 'steps' like a conventional auto’s gears. Eclipse Cross is a new model featuring a swag of advanced driver assist technology as standard but I can’t figure out why Mitsubishi [...]

By |2019-06-29T19:29:05+10:00June 22nd, 2018|4 Cylinder, AAA, skoda Reviews, SUV Medium|0 Comments

It is Czech-mate for ŠKODA’s newest SVU, the Karoq. Considered a mid-size SUV, Karoq is the “spiritual successor” to the Yeti. The latter is rarely seen in the wild. Karoq comes from ŠKODA’s Czech factories to OZ shores with the first batch being “fully loaded”, at a price. The range has been kept simple: one engine, two transmissions, and [...]

After driving the Peugeot 3008 at the end of the year, I was left with a jaw dropping experience. So when I heard about the 5008 I was itching to find out if it was just as good. And let’s say it wasn’t far off. Under the microscope was the Peugeot 5008 Allure; the base model, seven-seater, mid-sized SUV. [...]

BMW X3 is being sold as an SAV. What’s an SAV do I hear you ask? It is the kind of car a sporty, active, outdoorsy type will want, and use. There’ll be wet suits at 20 paces. See our full review with specs HERE. We’ve also reviewed other BMWs It is hard to stand out in the crowd [...]

BMW X3 redefines SUVs, as SAVs. A strange statement to be sure but it means X3 is not defined by unneeded off-road credentials. Once we understand that all becomes clear. Very few SUV-like vehicles will ever see a dirt road let-alone rocky mountainside. SAVs, or Sports Activity Vehicles, are intended to be for the week-end the posh active crew [...]

Jaguar E-Pace is all class. It is, after all, a Jaguar. Video review below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs8VSZfBUUg&t=607s Interior review below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-W7ks-hBQOg&t=3s Like most Jags before it, E-Pace has space, grace, and pace. That was Jaguar founder, Sir William Lyons’, favourite saying. Exterior Simple, elegant, lines make the metalwork clean and clutter free. The sporty “coupe” silhouette may cut a dashing figure, [...]

Jeep launched their all new Jeep Compass late in 2017 to Australia. Given that the last compass was a very soft option, the addition of the Trailhawk version for the latest generation is welcomed. The compact SUV segment is becoming more crowded, but with very few real dual range 4WD options. This segment represents about 20% of the total [...]

Nissan sells millions of X-Trails around the planet because it ticks many boxes for buyers, is consistently good at what it’s designed for, looks attractive and offers value for money. X-Trail is the 'right mix' and has been for more than a decade. Now, there’s an even better one available in Australia with a new 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine [...]
