I chat Holden Equinox with Nat Davey from Holden

Holden Equinox. Never has a vehicle been so important for an auto maker.

Some people want the convenience of a wagon but don’t need the power and expense muscle brings. Enter the 1.6 for $35,990. Outside, the 1.6 is all but indistinguishable from … Continue reading Levorg’s cheaper sister

Watch us drive VW’s mega safe uber-cruiser, the Arteon

You simply can't imagine how secure I felt knowing the car would pull over and stop … Continue reading Watch us drive VW’s mega safe uber-cruiser, the Arteon

Graceful elegant Passat: understated and underestimated

I’ve always thought Passat was one of those cars that sadly slipped under the radars of most buyers. Passat fits into the same category as Toyota Camry, Ford Mondeo, Holden Insignia and Malibu, and the Mazda 6.
