2017 Mazda CX-5 v Peugeot 3008 comparison

  See the full article here. The newcomer versus the champ: this isn’t some naff reference to a big money fight, but by the same token, it kind of is – because here we have the much-lauded European that’s all about swagger, going against the stalwart chart-topper with a tremendous record...

This 11.6L Turbocharged Big Block Rotary Engine is Completely Insane!

This image has been circulating the net for some time, so when it came across our desk we decided to do some research into exactly what this monstrous big block wankel engine was destined for.

Super rare Mazda RX7 Twin Turbo stretch limousine could be yours... if you want it?

We have no idea what possessed its creator to build it, but this 1993 Mazda RX-7 has been transformed into what we reckon could be the most unique limousine ever designed. Here is what the builder has to say about the crazy creation, which you can actually find for auction right now :) "A one off custom build using all the latest technology, from aerospace composites to the Nascar designed Roll Cage structure to the Lear-jet style power side door, this machine has it all...

2016-17 Mazda BT-50 recalled for airbag fix

Mazda has issued a recall for 277 examples of its late-2016 to early-2017 BT-50 utes over concerns faulty initiators may cause the side airbags to not inflate in a collision.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Maxx v Holden Trax LS comparison

The sales growth of pint-sized SUVs seems to have become stunted in 2017 despite an expanding category, yet they still account for about 10 per cent of Australia's new-car market. Two of the top-sellers can’t be accused of resting on their laurels, either. Both the Holden Trax and Mazda CX-3 have been given notable updates this year...
