  • EFTM Best Tech 2017: BMW Driving Assistance Plus

    We could have given “Best Tech” to any one of 15 other EFTM Award winners this year, and then there’s the many things that haven’t been recognised here this week.  But what’s interesting is our decision to give it to bit of car tech over and above our “Best...

  • EFTM Best Car 2017: Kia Stinger

    Brand snobs, Holden fans and even Ford fans turn away. There’s a new kid in town and as far as we’re concerned it’s here to stay. The Kia Stinger as Chris Bowen mentioned in his review is not the most impressive car we’ve driven this year, but it’s by...

  • EFTM Best Family Car 2017: Kia Carnival

    As the member of the team with the biggest family, it’s my job to determine the EFTM award for Best Family Car this year. Now I got to drive a fair few cars you’d put in that category, but unlike some, I know full well that while a hatch-back...
  • EFTM Best Networking 2017: Netgear Orbi

    When we first started discussing Best Networking I almost overlooked Orbi, thinking it had been around for longer than a year – in fact, it was announced last August, but only became available in Australia this year. That shows how far we’ve come with networking, we now have Mesh...
