Australians are shunning the market's cheapest cars

2015 Fiat 500 Review

For 2015 there aren't many changes to the Fiat 500, so it's still one of the cutest city cars around. If you want chilli with your 500, then the Abarth models are still the pick.

Honda City v Mitsubishi Mirage sedan : Comparison review

Australia’s largely unloved baby sedan segment has just had some life injected into it with the release of the new Mitsubishi Mirage sedan and second-generation Honda City. Slow sales have meant light sedan rivals have come and gone – Ford Fiesta, Kia Rio, Mazda 2 and the recently axed Nissan Almera – and those that remain are outsold many times over by their five-door siblings, including the Holden Barina, Hyundai Accent and (previous-generation) Toyota Yaris...

2015 Skoda Fabia revealed via official rendering

The 2015 Skoda Fabia has been revealed — sort of — with an official rendering released today suggesting that the next-generation Czech light car will be lower, wider and altogether sportier.  Due for its world premiere in October this year at the 2014 Paris motor show, the new Fabia takes cues from the VisionC concept unveiled last March in Geneva...

New car ownership costs: Suzuki Alto cheapest, Nissan Patrol priciest and depreciation the silent wallet killer

The Suzuki Alto may no longer be Australia’s cheapest car to buy — that title belongs to the Proton S16 — but it remains the cheapest to run, according to the latest study from the RAA, RACQ, RACV and RACT state-specific automobile clubs for South Australia, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania respectively...

Mazda 2 v Suzuki Swift: Comparison review

The Mazda 2 and the Suzuki Swift continue to be favourites with Australian consumers despite being two of the older members of the city car class. The duo accounts for one in four sales in the segment – impressive considering the pint-sized Mazda launched way back in 2007 and will be replaced by an all-new model early next year and the Suzuki, released in 2010, is also about halfway through its life...

The City’s sharp starting price, spaciousness, efficiency and infotainment technology make it a strong contender among a tiny group of pint-sized sedans.
