Ford Fiesta axed in the US, Australian prospects still unclear

American fans of the Ford Fiesta will have to keep their current-generation vehicles, as the company's North American arm has announced that the US won't be getting any versions of its little hatchback - not even the hot ST model. Speaking with CarBuzz at the Frankfurt motor show, Leo Roeks, Ford Performance of Europe director, said low demand in the US is to blame for the Fiesta's demise...

Mini John Cooper Works GP Concept revealed ahead of Frankfurt debut

Mini is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Monte Carlo Rally success with the unveiling of the Mini John Cooper Works GP Concept at next week’s Frankfurt motor show. The company is calling the concept, without a hint of irony, “the maximum Mini”. Rauno Aaltonen and Henry Liddon won the gruelling event in a Mini Cooper S, the last of three wins for the tiny rocket at Monte Carlo...

2017 Mazda 2 GT hatch review

The new flagship 2017 Mazda 2 GT will appeal to buyers who want the brand's stylish design and a funky interior, but it falls short in other ways.

2017 Suzuki Swift GLX Turbo review

The new Suzuki Swift gets the company's thrummy three-cylinder turbo in flagship GLX trim. Can it cut it at the top end of the light car segment?

2017 Hyundai Accent Sport hatchback review

The standalone 2017 Hyundai Accent Sport takes bits of both of the existing variants, and combines them into a punchy and affordable offering in the light car class. Shame it's feeling its age.

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report five – Team review

It's been a couple of months since we took delivery of our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer, and in that time it's been driven by numerous CarAdvice employees. So far we've covered urban commuting, infotainment, along with interior comfort and practicality. However we haven't really heard from the wider team...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report four – Interior comfort and practicality

Our Mazda 2 Neo has settled in quite nicely at the CarAdvice Melbourne office, proving to be an ideal vehicle to commute to and from the inner city. However, there have been numerous occasions where the Red Rocket has been called on to do more load-lugging duties, and for many buyers of this car you will likely have the odd occasion where a few passengers or luggage will be stuffed in the back of the little hatch...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report three – Infotainment

Our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer certainly has a lot of strengths, including its cute looks, zippy drivetrain, and its comfortable driving experience. However, one major drawback  of the entry-level model is its infotainment system – or lack of. Unlike higher-spec versions of the little hatch and sedan, the Neo grade misses out on Mazda's MZD Connect infotainment system, which incorporates a 7...
