Car Reviews:


TOYOTA CAMRY REVIEW: The updated Toyota Camry looks like a Lexus at first glance

The re-freshed Toyota Camry has been around for over a year and is now manufactured in Japan following the closure of the Altona factory by the global giant.

But the Camry continues to impress and is a much better looking car than the model it replaced.

On the road the Camry has a real Lexus look to it and that can only be a good thing.

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.

Fatality in older vehicle is four times greater
Nearly 80 per cent of young drivers under 20 who died and 71 per cent of those seriously injured in car crashes in the past five years were driving cars older than 10 years. Around 45 per cent of those who died were driving vehicles at least 15 years old.




We often pick a new car based on how it looks or how much it costs, but a new safety campaign is urging all of us to think about how the vehicle we buy might fare in a crash.
