Citroën C5 Aircross: a Handsome Comfortable SUV Citroën SUV offerings have been a bit hit and miss, but C5 Aircross is a bullseye, or slightly to the left of it. A simple 2 model line-up highlights the ethos of the Australian branch of [...]

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 [...]

2019 Kia Cerato Launch Review

By |2018-06-08T17:31:09+10:00June 8th, 2018|Videos|0 Comments

You expect “cheap and cheerful” when you think Kia, but what you might not expect is “tasteful and elegant”, and that is what new Cerato is. When a buyer visits a showroom they will sit in each car, trying them on for size. Like a good book, if the shopper isn’t hooked at first sight, the venture is lost. The [...]

Navman Dashcam and Satellite Navigation Drive Duo review

By |2019-06-30T00:26:26+10:00March 20th, 2018|AAA, Navman, Videos|0 Comments

Why are dashcams becoming so popular? Quite simply, you can’t argue with video proof. NavMan gave us their drive duo to take for a test drive, and it was mostly good news.We had a little trouble with power cord so ran it on batteries only. We put this down to user error. It is easy to attach to the [...]

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 [...]

November 22, 2017 Search for: 2017 Toyota Camry SX We drove the Camry at its local launch and liked it. It tends to a bit of understeer when pushed, but the electronic nannies all keep things tidy. We liked the looks and the equipment level. There is a raft of electronics to keep you safe, and to [...]

We've been waiting a long time to see Land Rover's new Disco. It didn't disappoint. It is smooth, and takes off-roading to a new high, in the lap of luxury. With adjustable air suspension, leather trim, and a thrifty V6 under the bonnet, the Disco can go anywhere. Now on the same platform as a Range Rover, Discovery drives [...]
