We bring together the two most affordable electric cars in Australia to do battle and establish which budget EV is best.
With the Mazda CX-5’s update for the 2020 model year focusing in on fixing the little details, it’s helped make it feel like a more well-rounded car than it already did, with it now truly ticking all the right boxes.
Hyundai’s all-electric small SUV delivers enough range to silence the detractors and has fairly impressive performance and decent dynamics to boot, only helping its maker position itself as one of the leaders in the EV race.
There are plenty of reasons to like Nissan’s second-generation all-electric Leaf, from its smart looks to its impressive driving dynamics, but a lack of charging infrastructure here in Australia along with its limited range presents some big hurdles for it to jump over.
Despite being one of the oldest new cars on sale anywhere in the world, Toyota’s 70 Series LandCruiser still holds relevance today with both its core workforce buyers, and those looking for a truly stripped-back and retro off-road machine.
In search of a different angle to look at the ever-popular Mitsubishi ASX from, we took the newly-introduced sporty GSR variant down to South Australia’s Encounter Bay for a spot of whale watching, and while we found we weren’t too good at snapping some shots of the big sea-dwelling mammals, the little Mitsi was a good car for taking us there to try at least.
We pit Nissan’s hardcore factory-modified Navara N-Trek Warrior against the tracks at the Loveday 4×4 Adventure Park to see just how much its capability has been improved compared to the regular ute it’s based on.
If you’re looking for the perfect A-to-B car, Toyota’s new Corolla sedan is exactly that, especially when it comes to the ultra-efficient and incredibly refined hybrid variant.
Audi’s do-it-all SUV still showcases a well-balanced blend of performance and practicality, but with a faster and more efficient diesel variant on the horizon, will this petrol model still hold relevance?
The Seltos GT-Line packs a punch when it comes to both the spec sheet and what’s lurking under its bonnet, but is it enough to justify the price premium over the lesser Sport+?
