The new Land Rover Defender is one of the stand-out vehicles to arrive in NZ in the last decade.

As I'm writing this review in early December, I’d like to make a prediction – the new Land Rover Defender should win the New Zealand Car of The Year title.

E-boxer, the revamped version of Subaru Forester.

Given that we already know already the Subaru Forester is a great SUV – after all it won the 2018 New Zealand Car of the Year Award – we were keen to get to grips with the latest e-Boxer Hybrid.

 
The Mako will be built to order at Toyota NZ’s vehicle operation facility at Thames.

With Ford holding the reins of the ute market since about 2014, it was always going to be a case of when – not if – Toyota NZ would deliver a model to compete.

 
Subaru's Limited Edition Outback X.

While many car manufacturers set out to cater for all sectors of the market, it’s fair to say that Subaru has “stuck to its knitting”.

Suzuki Jimny.

Strong demand for the instantly recognised Suzuki Jimny in New Zealand has continued to accelerate with the 1000th retail order recently confirmed and available shipments pre-sold for nine months.

RAM’s all-new Express Crew V8 Hemi features lots of space and a sporty appearance.

Having arrived in New Zealand in 2019, the journey for the RAM 1500 continues in 2020 with the introduction of the all-new Express Crew V8 Hemi. 

GM’s decision to axe the Holden brand means the SportsCat 2 will be the last of its kind.

The launch of the Series 2 HSV SportsCat was an endorsement of the risky decision to take the performance brand into the crowded high-end ute market.

Like many of Toyota’s product ranges, the Hiace series has a history that dates back five decades.

In a move to demonstrate the capability of its vehicles, Holden recently put the talk to one side and ‘walked the walk’.

Toyota New Zealand has broadened its Hilux range with a new entry level two-wheel drive, the WorkMate, aimed at buyers looking for affordability and Toyota reliability.

Subaru's latest SUV offering fills a need for drivers looking for something smaller and a little more potent than your average.

Toyota has raised the safety benchmark at grassroots level by introducing its Toyota Safety Sense Package on its hugely popular Hilux.
