HYUNDAI GENESIS USED CAR REVIEW: An impressive looking car from any angle

The second-generation Genesis sedan eclipsed its predecessor in every way and collected a long list of international design, quality and technology awards. With used models of the Genesis now being offered with low kilometres at prices under $30,000 this is a car worthy of your consideration.

SUZUKI JIMNY REVIEW: This off-roader is priced to sell

The long awaited Suzuki Jimny has returned to Australian and the new model fully embodies the core character of the off-roader that has been around for almost 50 years.

Suzuki has certainly given the value-for-money playing card very careful consideration and the price-point starting price of $23,990 plus on-roads for the manual will be very well received by buyers across Australia.
