We're for buyers...

Our aim is to be the number one site for intending Australian car buyers researching their next new car purchase. If that is you, we can help you make the right car-buying decision.

The information we provide on pricing and on the features and specifications on every make and model on sale in the Australian market, is easily accessed and easily navigated via our 'quick search' car Showroom pages.

This comparison tool enables direct side-by-side comparisons between makes and models, in a clear and easily accessed format.

Our car reviews

The car reviews we provide, updated daily, cover the breadth of the Australian car market - with car advice and information on every car, wagon, SUV, ute, pickup, van and 4X4, clearly laid out and expressed in plain English (that everyone can understand).

Every car we test, we put through a fine-toothed comb so that nothing escapes our notice.

We test on-road, and off-road; we report on performance, on handling, on features, how easy it is to drive, how much it can tow, its warranty and service costs, and on its finish and build quality.

And we report it back to you without bias or influence, and with direct comparisons to others in its market segment.

With a diverse and widely experienced editorial team, with careers in journalism, engineering and recognised motor industry backgrounds, our bottom line objective is to provide unbiased, accurate, and considered car advice in the new car product reports we provide.

That's why we're called The Motor Report.

Our independence

The Motor Report began as an independent site when a small team of car enthusiasts came together to challenge 'the corporates'. We've grown in both numbers and influence, but we're still independent.

Our enthusiasm is for cars - cars that you might consider owning - if we think it's a good buy we'll tell you; and if we think there are better buys, we'll also tell you.

Our independence means we don't duck any issue to please any manufacturer.

Find your next new car

When you have found the right new car, you may choose to enlist our assistance and car buying services, via The Motor Report's car deals link.

Contact us, and we can assist you to make the right vehicle purchase, at the right price, via the special relationship we hold with an Australia-wide network of accredited dealers.

We can be in 'your corner' when it's time to buy.

Car news for the obsessed...

The Motor Report is also a place for "the car obsessed", for enthusiasts, car nuts and tragics to pore over every detail of every make and model.

And, through our daily coverage of industry events and car news updates, on Motor Shows, on new models, on concepts and new directions, to not miss anything that's happening in the world of motoring, anywhere on the planet.

Our mission

Our mission is to be Australia's most innovative and trusted independent automotive online resource for new car buyers; to provide you with the right product information in the most accessible format and style to assist you to make the right car-buying decision.
