2018 Peugeot 2008 Allure Road Test, Review SUV, or not to SUV, that is the question, but is 2008 the answer? Peugeot is the world’s oldest car brand, so why is Peugeot is one of those brands that is so often overlooked?

French cars might not be on the top of many small car buyers lists, that's a shame given how good this new Citroen C3 is. There's no doubt the French designed and built cars offered by Peugeot and Citroen in Australia in recent years have come ahead in leaps and bounds.

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. [...]

VW Australia sent its product managers to work creating a special “entry level” GTI. Whilst 3 doors have been available in other markets, they haven’t been seen here in a very long time. Many of the driver aids have been left out, but the 169kw engine, selectable drive modes, and the latest Volkswagen infotainment system have been included. https://youtu.be/7Cq2vJFSkIg [...]

Volkswagen has a new-generation Polo available to Australian small hatch buyers with the arrival of the 2018 Volkswagen Polo into dealerships. I got along to the Australian launch of the now sixth-generation Polo and came away quite impressed. Volkswagen has a generously optioned, sharply priced and very competent little vehicle here that should make its presence felt up against [...]

Getting punters to revisit the medium size sedan segment is problematic for carmakers in the face of an avalanche of similar-sized and priced SUVs. But the sedan format does have merit especially if you don’t necessarily want to drive around in a practical box, preferring something a little sleeker. Apart from being a good looker, Hyundai’s latest Sonata (aka [...]

The seven-seater version of the Honda CR-V came out towards the middle of last year, much to the delight of large families everywhere. The VTi-L is the highest grade available with seven seats and at one tier off the top it’s not a bad option for a people mover, or emergency ‘bus’ for unexpected passengers. It really makes for [...]
