Oh it’s really Swift!

Suzuki Swift Sport NZ

It’s always been the case that some cars are simply more fun than others and one of the perennial Kiwi “fun car” favourites, the Suzuki Swift Sport, just got an update. It’s broken through the $30k barrier and comes with all manner of gadgets from satnav to adaptive cruise control, so is it still as […]

Look a Wrangler UTE – 2020 Jeep Gladiator Review

Jeep Gladiator NZ Review

There are several ways to describe the new addition to the Jeep family, huge Jeep, goliath off-roader, even Wrangler UTE, but all you need to know is that Jeep is calling it the most capable 4×4 in its class and to be fair, there’s probably not a mountain out there it can’t conquer – but […]

Audi A4 Avant – The Excellent Executive

Audi A4 Avant NZ

Audi has come out all guns blazing with their updated A4 Avant. The latest facelift brings more than just a few updated bodypanels; the 2020 model now features mild hybrid tech to enhance comfort and efficiency and inside the cockpit we now find Audi’s latest MMI touch screens.

BIG – 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS 400d review

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS 400d NZ

When asked ‘what is my all-time favourite movie’ one that nearly always springs to mind is Big. I won’t spoil it for those that haven’t seen it (do you live under a rock) but Tom Hanks assumes the body of an adult yet retains the mind and playfulness of a child, it’s funny and moving. […]

Tech in a skip

Gecko skip by Powerpac

We’ve all walked past construction sites with metal buckets hanging off cranes shifting dirt, stone and all sorts onto trucks. That dirty world of construction turns into stunning architectural masterpieces whether they’re building wharfs, bridges or anything else the inventive human mind can come up with. So when a video from Powerpac turned up on […]

Mazda’s Milestone Moment – Skyactiv-X

Mazda Skyactiv-X NZ

To be fair, Japanese carmaker Mazda has had many milestone moments over their 100-year history (a centenary being one of them) but their latest engine revelation is being deemed an event tantamount to ‘finding Narnia’. We headed to Mazda New Zealand to find out more about Skyactiv-X and SPCCI. From surviving and rebuilding after the […]

Deuce Coupe – BMW M235i Gran Coupe review

BMW M235i Gran Coupe review NZ

Ok, so when the American surfer band the Beach Boys sang about a Deuce Coupe they were referring to a different car brand that was in actual fact a hot rod, but when BMW New Zealand threw me the keys to their first-ever 2-Series Gran Coupe all dressed in bright Misano blue, the Beach, the […]

Mini EV-olution – 2020 Mini Cooper S EV review

Electric Mini NZ

With a history that dates back over six decades and a list of accolades and awards that far exceed the vehicle’s height (even the latest versions), there’s not much that the incredibly popular, iconic Mini hasn’t seen. It’s won rally’s, broken records and even been the main cast member in one of (if not the) […]
