  • EFTM Best 2015 – Best Luxury Car : Audi Q7

    When we drove the Audi Q7 recently we knew it had to win an award.  This thing is well styled, well fitted, and most of all is a real sense of luxury without a ludicrous price tag....
  • A Family Road Trip in the Toyota Kluger Grande AWD

    Earlier in the year Bowen took the new Toyota Kluger out for a spin and had plenty of good things to say. While he may be able to put it through the camping and dog as a passenger test, I took it one step further – grabbed the keys...
  • We drive the Ford Ranger Series II – is it the benchmark for Dual-Cabs?

    It’s a massive year for the dual-cab market with almost all brands receiving substantial overhauls. Long intended as purely Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) the latest generation is being tailored to suit families and multi-use applications more than ever before. We’ve driven the vastly improved Mitsubishi Triton and spent three...
  • More solid sound: Hands on with the new Braven BRV-HD

    We’ve been fans of the sound and range that Braven have been pumping out for years.  From smaller portables to the rugged power we’ve given awards to, there’s something for everyone.  Introducing the new BRV-HD – its big, it’s rugged and the sound is fantastic....
  • After a makeover, does the Mitsubishi Triton GLS Double Cab cut the mustard?

    Aussies love their dual cabs and increasingly not only for their original intended use. All still have their Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) underpinnings, but the latest generation is set to cohesively and comfortably combine its work and play attributes. The Mitsubishi Triton is one of the first to receive...
  • Simple affordable camping companion – the Gerber Paraframe Mini pocket knife

    The whole point of  a pocket knife is to be in your pocket at all times so it’s on hand right when you need it, and when you’re camping that really could be any time.  The smart folk at Gerber have designed a small pocket knife which they say...
  • Tech for everyone, plus a surprising seven seats – the new Land Rover Discovery Sport

    Who doesn’t love a Range Rover?  The Evoque certainly stimulated a new market for the Range but alongside it in the Land Rover stable have been a couple of other vehicles which are set for a refresh of their own.  This week, we got a first look and solid...
  • The Garage – Range Rover Sport TDV6 SE

    If you love cars, you love Range Rovers.  There’s something about them – the look, their presence on the road, perhaps just that brand that appeals – so getting behind the wheel could mean make or break for what was a matter of skin-deep lust.  How does it shape...
  • Putting the MAZDA BT-50 XTR to the test, beach, water & camping

    In early 2013 we got our hands on the Mazda BT-50 XTR, one of the new generation of dual-cabs that appease not only the tradies but also keep Mum, Dad and the kids happy. But given the capabilities these types of vehicles have we thought we’d really put the...
  • Taking the Toyota RAV4 Cruiser camping

    We drove the fourth generation Toyota RAV4 after its early 2013 launch but now in its 20th year the RAV4 has earned some tech goodies on higher spec models which may just tickle your soft off-roader fancies. EFTM took an “Inferno” (read burnt Orange) RAV4 Cruiser on a camping...
  • Using your iPad by the campsite or at a picnic – EASY! There’s a chair for that

    Got yourself a decent camp-chair?  One of those simple fold up chairs you take to picnics, friends BBQs, kids sport or of course out camping.  Think it’s missing something? Hell yeah it is – an iPad stand....
  • Driving the popular Toyota Kluger GXL AWD

    A profoundly different looking Kluger was launched in 2014 by Toyota, the obvious aim to remain competitive in the SUV race for dominance. EFTM has just spent the Christmas period testing out the US sourced and now standard 7-seater offering from the Japanese giant....
  • Our review: Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid – One for the family

    Back in March when we drove the revamped Nissan Pathfinder we quickly discovered the previous rugged model had been ditched for a sophisticated, genuine seven seater. Now Nissan has pushed past generation Pathfinders even further into the dark ages by introducing a Hybrid drivetrain. EFTM has been behind the...
  • All-New 2014 Jeep Cherokee – Driven By EFTM

    There’s a stack of mid-sized SUV’s creeping along the tarmac but not many can lay claim to some serious rock climbing talents. From the ground up the 2014 Jeep Cherokee is all new, with radically different styling, revised engines, transmission and most importantly comprehensive all-terrain technologies. But with a...
  • On the road in the Mitsubishi ASX

    The Mitsubishi ASX is another one of those city SUV’s churned out at a phenomenal rate by just about all manufactures. The hugely popular segment continues to go ballistic, and while that remains the case there’ll be no end to the trend. The Mitsubishi ASX is a common sight...
