Review - Subaru WRX STi


sti-profileOnce upon a time there was a motorsport category called the World Rally Championship. STi badgeSuch was the clout it had, the drivers were household names and car makers couldn’t throw enough coin at it. One of those makers was Subaru and with their dedication to an all wheel drive platform inside a smallish chassis, combined with Scandinavian drivers of such talent they frightened Formula 1 drivers, they forged a legend.

The flash of blue and yellow as the Impreza rally car powered through dirt or snow or tarmac stages on the way to a chequered flag cemented the car into motorsport lore.



out10Having tested the Outlander PHEV not long ago I was very interested to get the keys to the Outlander Aspire diesel as apart from the engine it is pretty much the same so it was good for me to get a good comparison between the two power plants.

 I do like the look of the Outlander the frontend seems to be a more modern take on the Mitsubishi family design style.

The open lower grille with fog lights, the thin chromed grilled in between the Hid head light complete with day time running lights at the front and clear lensed tail lights give the Otulander decent loks, the 18inch Alloys are one of the best factory done rims that I’ve seem and really set this car off specially with the wonderful Metallic red paint work which to me looks good in any light but is specially good looking in bright sunlight.


Review - A Journey Back To Dodge

dodge1There are station wagons, SUVs and people movers. Then there's the Dodge Journey/Fiat Freemont twins. A SUV look with people mover capability, station wagon style room and in R/T spec, rear seat DVD screen entertainment for (presumably) the kiddies. Punted along by a 206kW/342Nm 3.6L V6 engine alongside a six speed auto, there should be little to dislike. I "journeyed" to the Australian Alps and dragged the family along for the ride.

It's a good sized veehickle, with a 4.9m length, 1.7m height and 1.8 metre overall width encasing over 1.4m of shoulder room for the front and mid row seats; yes, it's a seven seater (an option) body however the test car came fitted with five, allowing some useful cargo space at the rear.

Review - Hyundai I30 SR

i30sr9The small car class in Australia is hotly contested and one of the most popular in the class is the Hyundai i30, having driven quite a few of it’s competitors including the Holden Cruze SRiV the week before I was very interested to see how the i30 shaped up.

We know what a hot hatch is and there are some wickedly quick hot hatches on the market but the down side to a hot hatch is they can cost upwards of $40,000 or more which in my mind is a lot of money for a small car. But lately several manufacturers have brought what could be best described as warm hatches, now as the term suggests warm hatch aren’t quite as quick as a hot hatch.
