2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Premium Review

I still vividly recall the attention the first-generation Hyundai Veloster garnered when I tested it six years ago. Its low slung, coupe-like styling was an instant hit with young and old alike. What’s more shocking was the fact that it came from Hyundai, which until then, produced sensible but relatively …

2019 Genesis G70 3.3T Ultimate Review

Along with the G80 we drove a couple of weeks ago, the Genesis G70 is the latest model to join the Genesis line up, adding a sporty, yet luxurious touch to the range. As its nomenclature suggests, the G70 sits below the G80 and competes with a tough crowd that …

2019 Nissan Navara N-Trek Review

Utes are big business these days, with two of Australia’s top-selling vehicles constantly being the workhorse cum adventure vehicle. How do you be one up on your competitors and push even more sales? Special edition models. And that’s what Nissan has done with the Navara. It’s fancily called the N-Trek …

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 …

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 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 …
