NEWS – MAZDA MX-30 ELECTRIC
Niche electric crossover from Mazda with sweet style and packaging but low driving range will be in Australia this August from $65k.
ADVICE – HOW TO CHECK YOUR TYRES ARE SAFE
Most Australians don’t know when to replace their car tyres or why tyre tread depth is so important. Here’s how to check that your tyres are ok.
2021 Victorian Caravan Show is Coming!
Australia’s premier outdoors show is moving to a new location for 2021 ONLY, but will still bring the best that the caravan, camping and touring industry has to offer.
REVIEW – 2021 PEUGEOT 2008 REVIEW
Peugeot makes likeable cars. That is a true fact and I won’t hear a word against them. The trouble is, they can be as likeable as you want, but up until recently, some of them were a bit quirky. I don’t mean deliberate, wilful quirk like a Citroen Cactus (quirkiness is, indeed, the point) but I mean the oddball first-generation 2008.
FEATURE – 2021 Subaru Outback range
More power and torque, enhanced safety tech and mild styling makeover define the 2021 Outback.
FEATURE - 1982 Land Rover custom
Land Rovers have been converted into just about everything in the past, but how about a kitchen?
REVIEW – 2021 MAZDA MX-30 HYBRID
Car makers sometimes reap great rewards when taking a chance. Porsche turned around its fortunes when it made its first SUV, and Ford in Australia might not be here if it weren’t for going all-in on the Ranger ute. For Mazda, its experimental model range ‘MX’ is a mixed bag – the MX-5 a sports car legend that lives on to this day, the MX-6 a flash in the pan.

Which Kia Sorento is right for you? Our full rundown of the 2021 Kia Sorento range including servicing, how much it costs to own, which engine is best and which one to buy.
REVIEW – 2021 NISSAN NAVARA
Nissan’s current D23 generation Navara has been with us since 2015 and in that time it has had a few revisions though nothing as significant as this MY21 facelift. Borrowing styling cues from the tough Nissan Titan pick-up truck on sale in the US, the Navara flexes its muscles with tougher styling, a heck of an upgrade in safety, welcome technology in the cabin, and some minor but important chassis revisions to bring it to the top of the class for work duties.
REVIEW – 2021 JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK
The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is a compact SUV with four-wheel drive (albeit on-demand and no low-range), a monocoque body structure and fully independent suspension that’s ‘Trail Rated’ on the Rubicon in the USA.

FEATURE - Land Rover Defender Works V8 Trophy

ADVICE – WHAT IS SWAY BAR DISCONNECT?
Being able to disconnect a vehicle’s sway bar(s) will be nothing new to four-wheel drivers but for, say, a Mustang owner, the idea of disconnecting their vehicle’s sway bar(s) would be madness.
ADVICE – CHOOSING BETWEEN AN SUV AND 4WD
SUVs are so popular it seems like you’re not doing family right unless you sell the old wagon/sedan and ‘upgrade’. Sure, some SUVs are bigger than sedans and some wagons, but then again, many SUVs are more like crossovers and make sacrifices compared to a nice big wagon.
FEATURE - 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch concept

REVIEW – 2021 KIA STONIC
Whether you call it a city SUV, a compact crossover or a jacked-up hatch, the only thing that matters to the bean counters is that cars on stilts sell.
ADVICE – WATER CROSSINGS MADE EASY
Want to go bush but haven’t had much experience? Here’s the quick and dirty on what to do if (when) you encounter water.
FEATURE – 2020 Jeep Gladiator Top Dog concept
Jeep loads up a Gladiator with Jeep Performance Parts, aftermarket products and custom touches to create the the Top Dog concept.
ROAD TEST – 2021 HYUNDAI SANTA FE
The car industry loves to brandish something as all-new. So trigger happy are some manufacturers that merely updating the styling or changing a few interior trims constitutes fanfare. However, not Hyundai. While the Santa Fe now rides on a new platform, one shared with the Kia Sorrento, gains a next generation engine and an overhauled cabin, the South Korean’s are resisting the urge to call it all-new.
FEATURE - 2021 Expedition Earthcruiser EXP
Earthcruiser’s updated, Iveco Daily 4x4-based EXP camper has arrived and it’s got everything the serious off-road traveller needs.
ROAD TEST – 2021 HYUNDAI PALISADE
People movers hardly move the needle when it comes to desire and cars like the Kia Carnival and Hyundai iMax are certainly proof of that. Yet they sell, so there’s is undoubtedly a market for big families that need an urban bus… but what about curb appeal?
