CarAdvice spoke with Mazda North America vehicle development engineer Dave Coleman at the launch of the new CX-9 this week, and he said that the new turbo engine can fit in the Mazda 6 – and the Mazda 3, as well...

Holden Calais V v Subaru Liberty 3.6R Comparison

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon were long the default options for families wanting a bucketload of space, a sporty drive and a powerful six-cylinder engine. And let’s not forget the somewhat less inspiring Toyota Aurion, too. Sometimes forgotten though, and somewhat pushed off to the side, is the mid-sized Subaru Liberty — especially in 3...

2016 Hyundai i40 Tourer Diesel review

It’s one of many almost forgotten cars in an almost forgotten segment. Medium passenger cars are being outsold dramatically by small cars and all forms of SUV’s. We’re casting many of them out into the wasteland but are we making a mistake? This is the Hyundai i40 and if you take a closer look, it will give you a lot to think about...

2016 Audi A4 Review : 2.0 TFSI Quattro

This is the 2016 Audi A4, and I know what you’re thinking: it looks just like the 2015 Audi A4. And you’d be right, except for one thing: it’s 90% new, so while the outside might be evolutionary, the rest of the car is revolutionary. The ninth-generation of Audi’s mid-size executive car sports the latest corporate look, and is slightly longer and wider than the car it replaces...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Review

Medium Passenger Segment – say it out loud and even the name of the segment is boring. It’s enough to put the genuine motoring enthusiast into a deep slumber. Don’t believe me? Have a listen to the following luminaries… Honda Accord, Hyundai i40, Nissan Altima, Peugeot 508, Renault Latitude, Subaru Liberty, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Jetta...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Diesel Review

Australian new car buyers have been moving away from the classic sedan in droves, preferring hatchbacks and SUVs to the previously unassailable four-door family car. The 2016 Mazda 6 GT is proof that the medium sedan is far from dead, however, offering the value, comfort and refinement lacking in similarly-priced vehicles from other segments...
