New car review: 2015 Audi TTS

More than 16 years ago, when the very first Audi TT hit Perth streets, this curvy little coupe caused an absolute sensation.

The Volkswagen New Beetle had been introduced only a year earlier, and the TT looked like a chopped and shortened version of that. So iconic has the original TT shape now become, it’s already being referred to as a modern classic.

New car review: 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium

It’s been 20 years since the Subaru Outback was first launched in Australia, and to mark the occasion Subaru had a surprise for us when the latest one was launched last December.

The surprise had nothing to do with the car’s equipment, performance or appearance. It was the price.

New car review: 2015 BMW X3 xDrive 30d

It’s no coincidence we’ve decided to look at the BMW X3 immediately after our road test of the Volvo XC60.

Both these models compete for the dollars of punters with similar profiles, although the Volvo is slightly cheaper.

New car review: 2015 Volvo XC60 D4

Since its introduction in the Australian market in early 2009, the Volvo XC60 has established itself as the go-to SUV for safety-focused Australians.

As a result, it’s currently Volvo’s best-selling vehicle.

New Car Review: 2015 Kia Soul

This is the second Kia we’ve had through the road test garage in as many weeks, and it didn’t bring quite as many pleasant surprises as the new Sorento Platinum did last week.

That’s ok though, because this boxy little hatch has soul. I know, because it says so on the bootlid.
