When Subaru launched the first generation XV compact crossover in 2012, it had only the Mitsubishi ASX and Nissan Juke to call rivals. Fast forward to 2017, and now in its second generation, the new XV is faced with an explosion of new entrants that have come into one of …

If you are looking at a large SUV with off road capabilities, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a strong contender.

2017 Tesla Model X P100D Review – 10 coolest features

There are not many cars on the road today that comes with the coolness and Wow factor of a Tesla Model X. Yes, subjectively, it may not be the best looking car on the road, looking more like an oversized hatch (and a slightly awkward one at that) rather than …

2017 Audi SQ7 Review

Do we need a 320kW / 900Nm seven-seat family SUV? Probably not. Do we want one? Yes, please. Like supercars, fast crossovers don’t need to make sense. They sell on performance figures, and nevermind if they are never explored by their owners, ever. And car makers make them because, well, they …

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba Review

Forget for a moment your preconceptions about Toyota because this, the Toyota C-HR, is unlike any other Toyotas before it. Just look at it.

2017 Mazda CX-9 GT AWD Review

Up until the arrival of the second generation Mazda CX-9, there wasn’t a car in the mainstream seven seater SUV segment that I would describe as beautiful. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 though, deserves that praise in every single way. I mean just look at it. The curves, the lines and …

2017 Lexus RX 450h Review

The Lexus RX started life in 1997 as a mid-size crossover offering car-like comfort and driving attributes in a roomy high-riding body. It’s the first compact SUV in the luxury space, says Lexus. And they might be right. Excluding the Range Rover, which is much larger, there really was nothing …

2017 Infiniti QX30 GT Premium Review

Some relationships are doomed to end in heartbreak and tears; like the one between a shiny new 20-inch alloy wheel and the kerb, while others are more amicable; like the one between Nissan – Infiniti’s parent company – and Mercedes-Benz. Since jumping into bed together in 2010, the partnership has …

How do you keep a five-year-old model fresh with minimal spending? Make a special edition. That’s what Hyundai has done to its Santa Fe seven-seat SUV.
