Welcome to episode 6 of the CarAdvice.com podcast! If you missed last week’s episode, or you’d like to know more about the show, catch our earlier articles here.

This week, Paul Maric and Mandy Turner are joined again by Mike Stevens to explore the news and reviews of the past week. As usual, there’s also a fair bit of foolin’ around.

What happened in this week’s episode? 

Senior editor Matt Campbell phones in to tell us about his favourite car, the new Toyota Prius.

Matt also discusses options for those in the market for a ute, lamenting the upcoming retirement of Ford’s and Holden’s car-based options.

We also speak with Ford Australia’s Jasmine Mobarek to talk Mustang, Focus RS, Kuga, and success in the sales race over arch-rival Holden.

Speaking of sales, stats nerd Mike Costello calls in to tell us what went down in the Australian new-car market in May.

In the news, Paris is banning all cars registered before 1997, Hyundai is out testing its upcoming i30 N hot hatch under the pressure of a full-blown racing environment, Ferrari and Ford take big wins in the Engine of the Year awards, BMW unveils its updated 3 Series GT, Mini’s hotted-up JCW Convertible draws closer to Australian showrooms, and ANCAP reveals it will take another look at its ‘tested in…’ datestamp campaign.

And, as is now tradition, we highlight a few ‘what the’ reader comments. Because if you can’t single out the odd units on-air, what’s the point of wielding all this power? 

We hope you enjoy the show, and please feel free to leave some feedback below!
