Welcome to the ROAD TEST section of the Motoring Channel. Here you will find hands-on impressions of new cars, where our team of motoring journalists road test vehicles, giving their view on some of today's hottest products. Our current feature review details the Audi A4 Allroad Quattro
Inside and out the A4 Allroad Quattro is produced to a very high standard. The 2.0L TDI engine is a beauty and there are no complaints with 7-speed S-tronic transmission. Read the Complete Road Test...
A 1.8-litre 4 cylinder DOHC petrol engine and a 60 kW electric motor are used in tandem to create Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive. Working together, the petrol engine and electric motor successfully minimise fuel usage and ultimately provide a positive driving experience.
Having slightly more interior space, a tinge of edginess, 2WD and 4WD variants, improved aerodynamics and (supposed) improved fuel consumption, the 4th Generation CR-V is, simply put, an upgrade to the CR-V brand.
It comes as no surprise that alot of time, effort and money have been put into the refinement of the ASX. The result is a modern family car that is hoping to take a large slice out of the healthy SUV market.
As part of their restructure of the brand, Mitsubishi have included a Luxury model (LX) which is strategically priced between the base (ES) and VRX models. The Lancer Ralliart has also had a price cut, yet remains the most expensive of the Lancers.
The 2012 Civic Sedan Series II range includes the base model Civic VTi, Civic VTi-L, Civic VTi-LN, Civic Sport and Civic IMA. We kicked off our 2-week road test journey with the VTi-LN and wrapped it up with the base model Civic VTi.
So, the Civic Hatch lives up to the reputation carved by Honda over the years. The result is a highly detailed, smooth running, user-friendly Hatch. The Sport starts at $22,650, whilst the Luxury is a tad dearer at $29,990.
Priced from only $18,490* the City doesn't pretend to be any more than it is. It provides high quality interior, a five star safety rating and a pleasant driving experience all for less than $20,000. Honda has won us over with this four door sedan, that's for sure.
The sixth and current generation 3 Series includes an array of model variants such as; Diesel (318d, 320d), Petrol (320i, 328i, 335i) and an Active Hybrid 3 (335i). We spent a week testing the base model diesel (318).
