Car Reviews:



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.

General Motors pull the pin on Holden in Australia
General Motors has announced plans to cease operating under the Holden brand in Australia from the end of the year.

Holden will now close its design studio in Melbourne and the test track at Lang Lang on the south-east outskirts of the city.



The decision by the American car manufacturer to close down the iconic Holden Brand in Australia and New Zealand comes three years after Holden stopped manufacturing cars in Australia and some 72 years after the very first FX Holdens rolled off the production line.
