2018 Toyota Prado Review

By |2019-06-30T15:49:16+10:00January 24th, 2018|4WD, AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Diesel, Gay cars fit for a queen?, SUV Large, Toyota Reviews|0 Comments

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 [...]

2018 Toyota HiLux TRD Review

Aussies love dual-cab utes and they particularly like the 'souped-up' varieties that just about every manufacturer brings to the market. One of the latest additions to the mix is this TRD-enhanced version of the Toyota HiLux SR5. What I find really interesting about this Toyota 'accessories' pack is that it feels a bit more integrated than some of the other [...]

Ford’s Venerable Titanium Everest

By |2018-01-05T10:39:40+10:00January 5th, 2018|4WD, Car Reviews by Brand, Diesel, Ford Reviews, V6, Video Reviews|0 Comments

In recent years, LCVs (light commercial vehicles) like Ford’s Ranger, have been turned into SUVs. Everest is one such result. I saw Ford demonstrate their Ranger at the last Sydney Motor Show and here are some pics from inside.  Ford had cunningly set up a display by stacking shipping containers. With several together at angles and 45° ramps [...]

Kia recently released the updated version of its much awarded Sorento.

The range has 2.2 diesel, and 3.5L V6 petrol engines, 7 seats, and the afore mentioned 8 speed auto. Weight ranges from [...]

Kia Freshens it’s big SUV: Sorento 2018

By |2019-06-30T11:58:51+10:00October 18th, 2017|4 Cylinder, AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Car Type Search, Diesel, KIA Reviews, People Mover, SUV Large, V6, Video Reviews, Videos|6 Comments

The only car Kia could benchmark new Sorento against, is the old Sorento. It really is that good. Location: The Blue Mountains, New South Wales. A cool, leafy, mountain top is the perfect place to reveal the mid-life makeover of Kia’s biggest SUV, the Sorento. It wasn’t all bluster and breeze, the meat and potatoes was all good news. [...]

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan review

By |2019-08-08T13:56:12+10:00August 7th, 2017|4 Cylinder, AAA, AWD, Car Reviews by Brand, Diesel, Front Wheel Drive, Gay cars fit for a queen?, SUV Medium, Video Reviews, VW Reviews|1 Comment

Bigger and better, and bolder than the model it replaced, the 2018 Tiguan is an absolute cracker. Outside, the look is a little squarer and more aggressive than before. It is handsome, and masculine, and modern. Larger wheels probably negate any kind of off-roading aspirations. As in all SUVs, you might need different wheels for serious fun. Veedub have [...]

2017 Volkswagen Touareg Review

2017 VW Touareg Adventure Review A facelift in 2015 gave the Touareg a much-needed refresh, and from the outside it was a success. VW’s corporate face was surgically implanted on to an aging car from 2010. In automotive terms, that is using a walking frame on front steps of an old folk’s home. Touareg Adventure is a special edition [...]

Infiniti’s mighty fine Q50

Infiniti has been around for a long time, but like Toyota’s LEXUS, has low sales figures. What is bad news for the car maker is very good news for those of us who like something with an air of exclusivity about it. I’ll be honest: I once detested Infiniti styling. There, I’ve said it. But, not any more. I once [...]
