Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT 2024 review: snapshot
Even when it builds a family-friendly SUV, Porsche still pushes the performance boundary. The Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe is the German brand’s take on the same extreme SUV class as the Lamborghini Urus (the two even share mechanical DNA). The extreme SUV comes with an extreme price, $364,700, which puts the Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe in the same league as the Urus and Aston Martin DBX.To justify the cost Porsche has packed as much performance as it can into the Turbo GT Coupe. Its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 produces an impressive 485kW/850Nm, endowing the Cayenne with sports car-like performance, despite its size.In terms of standard equipment all Cayenne now come equipped with LED Matrix beam headlights as well as 14-way electronically adjustable front seats, a head-up display, partial leather interior in black and a new 12.6-inch digital instrument display. The majority of the range gets 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, but there are different designs for the Cayenne, E-Hybrid and S variants, while the Turbo GT rides on 22-inch rims.Porsche has fitted a fairly comprehensive range of equipment as standard across all models in the range. This includes front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags, plus autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and a surround view parking system, as well as 'Active Lane Keeping Assist' with 'Crossroad Assist' for the Turbo GT.
Honda CR-V 2024 review: VTi L7
The Honda CR-V hit our shores in 1997 and it’s been a popular medium SUV for families ever since but the recently launched 2024 (sixth-generation) version sees some much-needed updates to help keep it competitive in a hotly contested market.The newest generation CR-V maintains a handy seven-seat configuration but the technology and safety systems have been overhauled to please the modern driver.However, it’s the restyling of its looks which will catapult it towards the front of the mid-size SUV pack… and the position is well-earned. This is (now) a good-looking vehicle.But Honda had to shake things up because the medium SUV class is one of the most popular categories in Australia and it’s awesome to see a hybrid variant being offered, even if it is only available on the top-spec model.The CR-V has solid competition from the likes of the recently updated Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-Trail and Volkswagen’s family-friendly Tiguan Allspace.This week I’m road-testing the VTi L7 front-wheel drive grade with my little family of three to see just how practical this revamp has been.
GWM Tank 300 2024 review: Hybrid Ultra
From 4x4 SUVs to utes, Australians are in love with adventure vehicles, and that love has only grown in recent years. There are plenty of off-road-capable large SUV options, but their prices can quickly stretch to close to $100k. That’s where GWM comes in. Launching its Tank sub-brand earlier this year, the Chinese automaker is tackling the more affordable end of the 4x4 wagon segment with its 300. And after waiting nearly a year, the petrol-electric hybrid version is finally on sale. It represents a unique proposition for buyers wanting capability but also efficiency.
