CarAdvice on YourMoney, 31 October 2018: What’s on this week’s show?

On this week’s episode of CarAdvice, Paul Maric and Trent Nikolic discuss Merc’s long-awaited new SUV, a new generation of BMW’s iconic sedan, the electrifying future of Audi – and a whole lot more.


In the news, we explore the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE, launched at the Paris motor show just in time to take on BMW’s new-generation X5. Which will be the more compelling premium SUV for Australian buyers?

At the other end of the premium German scale, BMW’s crucial new 3 Series also debuted in Paris, ready to do battle with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4.

Think we’re done with the Germans? Not just yet. Another new unveiling is the Audi e-tron quattro, the company’s first electric SUV ready to go global. It’ll rival models like the Jaguar i-Pace, the Mercedes-Benz EQC, the BMW iX3 and the Tesla Model X.

Moving on…

Netflix, but for cars? Monthly subscription services are taking over the entertainment industry, but they’re not guaranteed to take off in the motoring world. Trent & Paul discuss the costs, features, benefits and pitfalls of car subscription services.

Paris Motor Show Hits and Misses – the boys talk about their favourites, what impressed and what they think is a future fail.

ADVICE: Using the Mitsubishi Triton 4×4 Dual Cab Ute and Pajero Sport 7-seater 4×4 Wagon as an example, Trent and Paul discuss why you should look at a wagon over a ute.


“CarAdvice” airs every Wednesday at 8.30pm on free-to-air channel 95 and Foxtel channel 601.
