The Jaguar XF is arguably one of the most important models in the company’s passenger car portfolio as it was the XF that revitalised the struggling brand from oblivion in 2007, after years of producing ho-hum products under Ford’s ownership. It was the trailblazer model that shaked off Jaguars ‘old fashion’ …

2017 Mazda 6 Sedan Review – Atenza Diesel

Premium looks without premium price. That’s the best way to describe the third-generation Mazda 6 midsize sedan. To us, it is NOT one of, but THE best looking sedan in its class.

2016 Suzuki Baleno Review

The Suzuki Baleno is Back! The last time the Baleno was in Suzuki’s showroom, John Howard was our prime minister and ‘Can’t Fight the Moonlight’ by LeAnn Rimes was the chart topper. That was 2001, in case you are wondering. In between, the Japanese brand has been trying to convince …

2016 Audi A4 Avant Review

There is something about the Audi A4 Avant. Unlike the BMW 3 Series Touring and Mercedes-Benz C Class Estate, in the Audi you don’t feel like you’re driving a boot, neither do you feel like you’re announcing domestication to the world. Instead, you drive the A4 wagon with pride, for …
