Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Every week I like to let you know what I’m writing about normal cars (just so you know it’s not all beer and skittles) as well as articles from around the web.

So let’s get cracking.

Jaguar’s XF Sportbrake was a lovely thing and I spent a week with it. Only drama was a flat tyre. I suspect a passing miscreant stabbed the tyre with something very small and very sharp.

I recently drove a Subaru Liberty (aka Subaru Legacy elsewhere) for Carsguide. I liked the improvements to the drivetrain, although I’m not entirely certain the ride is super-successful.

There’s also the second instalment of my long-term review of the Hyundai Kona Active.


Over at SUV Authority, West Australian taskmaster Karl Peskett has had a go at the Honda HR-V. Before the Kona and before the Forester, I had the HR-V for three months and I didn’t mind it too much.

He’s also cast his eye over the Nissan Patrol. They like their big proper four-wheel drives over in WA.

Drive Zero

Drive Zero has an excellent piece on Honda’s EV strategy. Do yourself a favour if you like your motivation electrified.


Speaking of electric cars, here’s an idiot who thought it would be funny to switch seats while underway on AutoPilot in a Tesla. What a moron. It’s people like this that get others killed. As good as AutoPilot can be, it’s still not a match for human intervention.

Road and Track

R&T has an amazing story about a bloke who wants to IndyCar to run turbine cars (again) and the renders are *amazing*
