2015 Mazda CX-3 Maxx Safety (FWD) Review

Two great things about this car: "Sports" mode, allowing you to sacrifice economy for power (arguably the power it should have had in the first place, sacrificed for economy) and the centre console, allowing you to control the infotainment system with a joywheel, instead of the touch screen.

2015 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Review

Buying a new car these days is akin to going to buy lunch in a food court with fifty outlets.

Just because there are fifty outlets and the food court is full, don’t make the mistake of thinking that all the food is good value, tastes good and that it’s all fresh...
