• Road Test: Peugeot 3008 GT-Line… Peugeot’s renaissance?

      Awards are no guarantee of success. And truthfully much of that has to do with there being too many of them. Awards for engines, awards for SUVs, awards for family cars, budget cars, design, safety. Right down to the mere process of cobbling something together be it from...
  • Road Test: Subaru Impreza 2.0i-S

      The name Impreza conjures up memories of lurid four-wheel slides and box-shaped boxer engined sedans beating up on supercars in the noughties. Amongst enthusiasts, Impreza is synonymous with performance. But in case you haven’t heard Subaru has moved the Impreza name away from WRX and STI and Impreza...
  • Road Test: Jaguar releases a more eco-friendly F-Type

      That shape, that colour.  The F-type R-Dynamic with the R12 400 optional Ultra blue is possibly one of the most fetching cars I’ve ever driven.  The 19” wheels snugly nestled in those flowing arches, and the optional spoiler that really shouldn’t be an option, but standard fitment on all...
  • Road Test: Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2.4 D4 4×4

        It’s the urban-orientated ASX that permits Mitsubishi to build a serious off-road SUV in the mould of the Pajero Sport and unapologetically reference Pajero’s back catalogue of rugged invincibility while engaging with the same faithful crowd as before. There are a number of USPs too, which we’ll...
  • Balance of performance- We drive the 911 GTS

    In a range that continually progresses, this remains the pick The Porsche GTS family is now nearly a full house. The 911 GTS has checked in as the latest member to join the ranks of Boxster GTS, Cayman GTS, Macan GTS, Cayenne GTS. A Panamera GTS is not far...
  • Nissan’s 370Z is still available new, but should it be?

    Nissan’s 370Z has been around in pretty much the same guise since 2004. Yes, it was called the 350Z back then but essentially it’s the same car. Similar chassis, familiar interior, and much the same drivetrain, albeit with much more power. So how does Nissan justify selling this car...
  • Road Test: Mini Countryman JCW Auto

    It’s been 17 years since John Cooper passed, but the Cooper name lives on, thankfully, and although some of the essence has been diluted, when you get behind the wheel of a John Cooper Works, the feeling is still rather quite special. We drive the 2018 Mini Countryman JCW...
  • Road Test: Hyundai Tucson Turbo Executive Sport

    Hyundai’s Tucson Turbo Sport is the most powerful Hyundai available locally. Sporting 150kW and 295Nm of torque, the kitted out van isn’t what we’d expect from Hyundai, at least not until recently. With N Versions popping up in Hyundai brochures,  and Hyundai challenging GTi for the hot hatch crown,...
  • Bite the back of your hand…the S90 R-Design is here.

    After a road trip in a 2 seater sports car, I would immediately be swapping that out for the much more sedate S90 R-Design.  A let down some would say but after a cross-country cruise in what is effectively a 2 seater jetpack, it was nice to settle into...
