Family friendly? : Driving the Mazda CX-30

With everyone now clamoring for an SUV, manufacturers are having to constantly add new models to their ranges to satisfy niches-within-the-niche. Mazda's done just that with this vehicle that slots between their CX-3 and CX-5.

The new Range Rover Evoque: As good as it looks?

It’s got the looks and the desirable Range Rover badge. But how well does it perform beyond aesthetics? Cam and Steve spend some time in the Evoque to see how it stacks up for kiwi Audiences. May contain idiots attempting off roading.

X5 Evolution: Driving the BMW X5 M50D

The X5 was the first SUV that drove like a proper car. That was way back in the 20th Century. Things have moved on a bit since then, and the fourth gen X5 is a very different beast to what has come before.

Power Steering: Driving the 670HP Ford Mustang Supercharged

Want to try keeping a 670HP rear wheel drive car on the straight and narrow - on wet roads? We managed it in the Roush Supercharged Mustang. It’s a handful as much as it is an eyeful and earful. Essentially, it's got maximum threat factor.

Empire Strikes Back: Driving the Jaguar XE S

Jaguar reckons those German car makers have had things all their own way for far too long in the mid-size executive car space. The British brand’s fightback? This quick cat compact sedan that puts the tired old ‘bowling club’ Jaguar clichés to bed.

Suburban Utility: Driving the Mazda CX-9

How will a 4-cylinder 2.5-litre engine get to grips with hauling nearly two tonnes of 7-seater around? Well, Mazda thinks it'll be no problem, confident the big CX-9 delivers 'real world performance'.

Setting Son: Driving the (old) Land Rover Defender

We sample the last of its kind: the thoroughly un-modern Land Rover Defender 110 station wagon in delicious heritage green. And we’re not even architects or advertising executives!

Snap, Crackle & Pop: Driving the Hyundai i30 N

Hyundai hot hatch? Absolutely. The i30 N is the Korean brand’s first crack at a proper compact firecracker, and when unveiled it immediately had the rivals running for the hills. Perhaps they're scared of all the drama from the exhaust.

Roadster Rules: Driving the BMW Z4 M40i

The challenge for small convertibles is that, for a handful of Neanderthals out there, they'll always be regarded as a lesser automobile. Well, cars like the BMW Z4 take a big ol’ turbocharged stick and poke that claptrap fair in the eyehole.

Much Respect:Driving the Camaro ZL1

There's a limit to how much power you can throw at the ground via two wheels and expect them to retain traction.

Cruise Control: Driving the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

Like a faithful old friend, Toyota’s Land Cruiser Prado has been a fixture of the antipodean lifestyle for… well, almost forever. The latest version has had a chin tuck and some other tweaks to keep it fresh.

Rear Wheel Deal: Driving the Kia Stinger GT

A large, rear-wheel drive performance sedan from...Korea? Yes indeed. The Stinger GT has a meaty turbo engine, a RWD chassis, striking looks and air-punching nameplate. So, beyond the spec sheet does it deliver as a driver's car?

Generation Game: Driving Two Lexuses (Lexii?)

How far has Lexus come in the last 30 years? We drive a blast from the past and a thoroughly modern super saloon side-by-side.

Electric Dreams: Driving the Tesla Model 3 Performance

The funny thing about reviewing cars is that, occasionally, one can sneak up on you and challenge every molecule in your petroleum-rich bloodstream. Even to the point of declaring yourself something of a brand acolyte.

Feline Good: Driving the Jaguar I-Pace

Wouldn't it be great if you could have all the proud history and prestige that comes from a revered British car maker, but skip the oil leaks and dodgy electrics of old? Well, actually Jaguar has been offering that for years.

Did the Commodore kill Holden?

So, Holden is dead. We knew it was sick but not quite that terminal. But what part the ZB Commodore really play in the death of the Aussie badge? We even took three Commodores to a skid pan to get all analytical about it.
