I live on a winding, tree-lined dirt road in the country which is like a honey-pot to a bear for boys in their toys. Now ageing and appreciating the peace and tranquility of my country lifestyle, there’s plenty of times I’ve taken the nearest farming implement to me and wandered to the roadside upon hearing […]
It’s not all about the looks though. It’s not much about the looks, in fact. It’s about what’s inside, what’s under the bonnet and what this nifty BMW can do that impresses.
While our cop cars are likely to get plenty of interior intelligence modifications, Joe Public can rest easy knowing they get the advantage of an upgraded 8.0-inch main display, replacing the old 7.0-inch unit, in all models.
There’s plenty to like about the GS300h in and around the urban jungle, not the least being the efficiency and while not the most dynamic of cars for performance or power, it makes for a nice open road cruise.
Performance, aesthetic appeal and value for money have been on the table with all Subarus I have jumped behind the wheel of lately.
Renovating a home in the midst of winter is not the greatest of ideas. If it is not already tough enough to be down on hands and knees pulling carpet staples from wooden floorboards, the additional arthritic crippling of the cold is enough to make you seriously consider a trip down to Carpet Court for […]
RAA has welcomed the State Government’s decision to remove the bus lanes along Anzac Highway, following a six month trial.
Mazda knew very early on that it was onto a good thing with its CX-5 range… and it is keeping up appearances to head off a pack of challengers in the mid-size SUV segment.
For anyone who likes, or needs, a bit of help when they go for a drive, the Mercedes-Benz E 400 could be the car for you. You will need $139,900 to get into one of these super sleek saloons, but you’ll be hard pressed to be disappointed in what you get for that and what […]
It was a real world problem. I had a high-end Tasting Australia event on a farm an hour and a half from the city to get to through peak hour traffic. While a clear and calm night was on the cards at Yankalilla’s Wakefield Grange farm, comfort was still a consideration. Comfort and something practical. […]
The gleaming silver convertible V8 Mustang was undoubtedly a head-turner but was shown up by a classic, a Shelby Mustang GT350H, before both cars were outplayed by the real deal... the resident “Mustang” wild horses, one of which was bold enough to take a look inside our test car.
I’ll take on any car that comes my way and like to think that they will all get a fair hearing…. even when it is an entry-level offering and even if I’ve just stepped out of a supercar. Just as it takes all kinds of people to make a community, we must expect that it […]
The electric vehicle and home battery pack leader has set its sights firmly on South Australia with the opening of a pop-up store.
There’s a new Subaru small car in town and it is pretty impressive. The fifth generation Impreza may not look much different to the models before it but under that skin is a new underbody structure, the first model built on Subaru’s global platform. I’d be lying to say I noticed any great difference in […]
Mercedes-Benz Adelaide blew the prestige pack away last week by bringing the WOW factor to its launch of South Australia’s AMG Performance Centre, one of only 10 in Australia. And you could well be forgiven for thinking “O M G” over “AMG” if lucky enough to be at the Sir Donald Bradman Drive showroom launch on […]
It was hot on and off the track at Adelaide’s city street circuit for the Clipsal 500. As eventual Race 1 winner Shane Van Gisbergen battled it out with the super cool, by name at least, Fabian Coulthard and James Courtney at the front of the pack, the punters around the Adelaide street circuit found […]
Classy leather interior, ample room throughout, impressive and functional dash layout with all the bells and whistles one could desire also build the case for this big cat to make waves in the large car segment.
Choice is always a good thing, and I think when it comes to the Mazda3 range, it is also a big contributor to why this continues to be a car of choice with Australian buyers.
Changes in the recently updated Mazda6 are subtle and largely hidden or conspicuous. They don’t so much as fix something that was broken, but they do serve to make the popular, sleek and stylish family-car just that bit better.
A “Mercedes Mash-Up”, it takes the swooping styling of a traditional coupe and throws in four-door family practicality, a fastback boot and the ride height of a SUV.
