2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport Premium Review

Time and effort can reap amazing results when applied diligently and Hyundai has taken that exact approach with the Elantra. Starting off life in the 90’s as the sporting sedan in Hyundai’s line up, the latest version hasn’t strayed too far from the original formula. It’s the 2019 Elantra Sport …

2019 Jaguar XE P300 R-Dynamic Review

There is a lot to like about the Jaguar XE. Our first drive of the baby Jag in range-topping S form back in 2017 had us impressed with its superb driving dynamics, potent F-Type derived supercharged powertrain and lusty good looks. Yet, there was room for improvement. The transmission wasn’t …

2019 Genesis G80 Ultimate Sport Design Review

If the Genesis G80 looks slightly familiar, that’s because it was known as the Hyundai Genesis in its previous life. It first launched in Australia in 2014, at a time when buyer’s started deserting the large sedan segment. As a result, it was sold mostly to limo operators. It also …

Ute Comparison: 2019 Holden Colorado vs Mitsubishi Triton Review

On the surface you’d be hard pressed to initially distinguish these two from one another as they each tick all the boxes needed for a capable dual cab 4×4 ute. Spend some time and dig a little deeper below the surface and you’ll see that even though they’re both built …

2019 Subaru Outback Review – Is It Better Than an SUV?

If you’re in the market for an SUV – like pretty much every car buyer these days – chances are you scratching your head deciding which of the segment’s 15 or so models to pick. But there’s one car that often gets overlooked by SUV buyers and it’s not an …

2019 Range Rover Velar Review – The Good and The Not So Good

It’s hard not to talk about the styling when reviewing a Land Rover product these days. The Range Rover Velar might be three years old but it’s still one of the most beautiful mid-size SUVs on the road today. And it’s not just style over function, either, as it’s roomy …

2019 Toyota RAV4 Edge Review

First introduced in 1994, the Toyota RAV4 is one of the pioneers of the compact crossover segment. As its name suggests, the RAV4 – short for Recreational Activity Vehicle 4-wheel-drive – was designed to be at home both on and off road. It was very much sorted for everything life …

2019 Ford Mustang GT vs Jaguar F-Type 2.0 Review

Here at ForceGT, we like to do things a little differently. While the V8-powered Jaguar F-Type is likely the natural rival to the Ford Mustang GT, it’s also nearly three times more expensive than the $66,290 (before on-roads and options) blue collar Mustang. Happily, the F-Type now also comes in …

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric Review – has petrol had its time?

Hyundai seem to have really committed to an all electric future by offering both the Kona and Ioniq with completely electric powertrains and it’s the Kona that’s the company’s flagship in this space. They’re marketing the Kona Electric as a long term cost saving green machine that could save you …

2019 Lexus ES 300h vs Toyota Camry Hybrid Review

The Lexus ES used to have the unenviable reputation of being a tarted up Toyota Camry, and to some degree, it still is. However, that changed in 2013 as the separation became more significant and apparent, as the ES went through a growth spurt that saw it grew in size …

2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N Review

When I was growing up I was a big fan of the 1994 Mazda 323 Astina. It was the car that pioneered the combination of a sleek coupe body with four doors and it looked fantastic. Those frameless windows and slim headlights, the low nose and liftback rear, and the …

2019 Kia Picanto GT Review

Remember the Volkswagen Up? The pint-size Kia Picanto reminds me a lot about Volkswagen’s delightful little micro car from six years ago. Unlike the Up which was a sales disaster, the Picanto commands nearly 81 per cent of its market segment so far this year and is by far the …

2019 Lexus RC F Review

The Lexus RC F is the Japanese luxury marque’s baddest and most potent offering since the ballistic LFA supercar. It’s rivals are all Germans, namely the BMW M4, Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe and Audi RS 5 Coupe. And instead of trying to be one of them, Lexus chose to forge …
