Hyundai Santa Fe v Mazda CX-9 2018 Comparison

Can the new Hyundai Santa Fe dispatch Mazda's CX-9, our former car of the year winner? These are out-and-out family wagons. They ride high enough off the ground to clear traffic pacifiers in inner-suburban streets and can tow stuff for the occasional weekend away or trip to the local transfer and recycling station. Powered by turbocharged four-cylinder engines, the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Santa Fe are cheaper to run than the segment's traditional SUVs – often with V6 engines or [...]

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan 2019 Teaser

New sedan to be the most aerodynamic car on the road today. Mercedes-Benz has teased the 2019 A-Class Sedan, confirming its credentials as a seriously slippery customer. According to the company, its upcoming three-box A-Class will be the most aerodynamically efficient car in the world with a 0.22 coefficient of drag (Cd), down on the (already-impressive) 0.25Cd offered by the hatchback. Beyond the basic shape, it says the headlight surrounds and seals are tighter than normal, while the underbody is almost completely sealed to better slice through [...]

Mercedes-Benz Star Lodge

Mercedes have taken the idea of snow-based “brand activations” to new heights with a clever, comfortable and cool new installation at Victoria’s Mt Buller ski fields. Well, not so much cool as warm, because the Mercedes-Benz Star Lodge, which opens to the public this weekend, is based on the European tradition of “warming huts”, which give skiers and boarders a chance to defrost their fingers in between runs. In a particularly nifty touch, the Star Lodge, which feels like a [...]

Toyota Kluger GXL VS Kia Sorento GT-Line VS Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander VS Mazda CX-8 Asaki

When put bonnet to bonnet, who will come out on top? We put the Toyota Kluger GXL, Kia Sorento GT-Line, Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander and Mazda CX-8 Asaki to the test. Toyota Kluger GXL As is the case for much of its showroom, Toyota’s Kluger has a target on its back. Like the Corolla, HiLux and Camry, the Kluger is a clear leader in a hard-fought segment, forcing rival brands such as Hyundai, Kia and Mazda to work harder in [...]

1973 Honda Civic

When Honda offered us a drive of the first-generation 1973 Honda Civic it recently acquired, we wanted to give it the spotlight, as its younger sibling, the tenth-generation 2018 Honda Civic, has seen plenty of it since its launch in 2016. Without the success of the Civic, there is a strong chance we wouldn’t be driving Hondas today. Before the Civic came along, Honda offered roadsters, wagons, sedans and smaller cars like the Kei-car-inspired Z and N360. But sales started to decline by the early ’70s and Honda [...]

The all-new Santa Fe has hit Tynan Hyundai Kirrawee showroom floors and it's certainly turning heads for the right reasons. Hyundai have put a lot of thought into this 7 seater family SUV which allows the back seat battle to finally be put to rest. [...]
