Ford Endura 2019 Review

April 8, 2019

Ford Endura 2019 Review It’s just over two years since the Ford Territory went out of production, and Australia’s only ever locally built SUV has been sorely missed. World-class driving manners, a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, (eventually) an alternative turbo diesel option to the staple 4.0-litre straight-six, clever storage solutions, and a spacious cabin that could accommodate up to seven people. So, enter the Endura – a vehicle known as the Edge elsewhere in the world...

2018 Kia Cerato takes on… a Lamborghini Aventador?

April 8, 2019

2018 Kia Cerato takes on… a Lamborghini Aventador? In one of the more creative marketing campaigns we’ve seen, Kia’s North American arm has decided to pit the new 2018 Cerato against “one of the fastest, flashiest, most coveted sports cars ever”, the Lamborghini Aventador. Despite the comparison being held at a race track, much of the focus is on both vehicles at a standstill – very clever indeed. Anyway, we won’t spoil it for you,...

8.5/10 LDV T60

April 8, 2019

Another great, honest owners review… “Great vehicle – the ride is a little stiff, but smooths a little after a bit of use. It rides better with a load, and when towing I press the power button and it performs as well as the best. The cabin controls are in all the right places. It pays to read the book, as with the new technology it’s good to know what the limitations are – such...

April 8, 2019

Big Change Coming in Accounting Treatment of Fleet Vehicle Leases In nine or so months the world as we know it for accounting for fleet vehicle leases will change. A new international standard known as IFRS 16 will be mandatory in Australia from 1st January, 2019.

Hyundai Tucson 2019 Review

April 8, 2019

Hyundai Tucson 2019 Review The Hyundai Tucson was never going to be left looking out of place amidst the Korean company’s more aggressively-styled SUV line-up – and so what you see here is the mid-life update of the popular mid-size SUV. Admittedly, the Hyundai Tucson 2019 model doesn’t look exactly like the smaller Kona or larger seven-seat Santa Fe.  But there are some minor cosmetic changes for this updated Tucson model – and the underlying story here is that the...

April 8, 2019

Dangerous Driving Habits of Aussie Motorists The phrase “dangerous driving” typically brings to mind images of drinking, swerving and speeding behind the wheel. However, activities that people don’t usually classify as dangerous – things such as eating or reaching into the back seat – are actually some of the most common habits of Australian drivers, and some of the most dangerous. In fact, internal distractions are one of the biggest causes of crashes and incidents...

Everyone is making the same big mistake about electric cars

April 8, 2019

Everyone is making the same big mistake about electric cars Electric cars are cheaper to own over the long term than gas-powered vehicles. But consumers aren’t always guided by cost when they buy a vehicle. Thus far, the EV value proposition hasn’t created a big market for the new technology. Compared to just a decade ago, we have a lot more choices when it comes to buying an electric car. Short-range EVs such as the...
