2018 Peugeot 308 GTi 270 Review

August 13, 2018 Alan Zurvas

The 2018 Peugeot 308 GTi 270 is one of my favourite French cars of all time. The brand is the world’s oldest car manufacturer, a fact most people don’t know. 270 refers to horsepower, a […]

August 10, 2018 Alan Zurvas

Since 1965, Toyota Corolla has been a top seller for the company, frequently topping the top ten Australian best seller list too. Built on a new platform, Toyota promises the updated Corolla delivers better performance, […]

2018 Holden Calais V Review

July 18, 2018 Alan Zurvas

When Holden decided to keep the Commodore nameplate, Calais V stayed on as top dog. We drove the range at the Australian Launch. Whether or not this was a wise decision, only time will tell. […]

Subaru’s Liberty (called Legacy outside Australia) starts at $34,804 (drive away NSW) and that is a whole lot of car for the money. Unlike other brands from the land of the rising sun, Subaru is […]

2018 BMW X3 30i X-line Review
