Driving Mulholland - exploring Mulholland Drive in a Mazda MX-5

Read the article here. Now, Mulholland is very, very accessible. It's just north of Beverly Hills. It's only taking me maybe 15 minutes to get here on a Tuesday morning, and that's in a bit of traffic. Having never been along here before, it does feel instantly familiar...

Mazda MX-5 Old v New Comparison - First-generation NA v fourth-generation ND

Read the article here. Like it or not, the '80s were cool. Madonna and Prince were at the height of their success and big hair wasn't just acceptable, it was encouraged. But a very special thing happened in February of 1989: the Mazda MX-5 was born. It all started with the first-generation Mazda MX-5, the NA. It had an 85kW/130Nm 1...

2016 Mazda 3 Touring sedan Review

Read the article here. The small car market is one of the biggest segments for new car sales in Australia, but when you think of small cars, you probably think of hatchbacks.

Read the article here. We're all busy people — so it's important to take time out every now and then. Well, that's the excuse we came up with. Last year I had the chance to drive to the northernmost point of Australia with Volkswagen in the Amarok.

2015 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

I bought this car to replace my Mk6 VW Golf when its lease ended. The Golf had served me well, but difficulties getting a decent trade in and the poor reputation put me off rolling that dice again. This time around I wanted low risk, good value and some reasonable prospect of decent resale...

2008 Mazda 2 Genki Review

Oh yes, the Mazda 2. First things first, the model I selected isn't correct, since Finland has completely different versions. As me and my wife needed a second car, we thought it has to be cheap. So, 5000 Euros later, we got the Mazda. And we didn't even drive anything else. It was so good...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

I purchased the Mazda in September 2014 after looking around at many different vehicles of all types and not just SUVs. In point of fact I was somewhat against buying an SUV as I have always enjoyed driving agile and responsive sedans and hatches with great steering and chassis balance and I did not feel that the gap could be overcome...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

From the day I picked her up, I've never had a problem. You can tell Mazda have really worked hard to make sure this car lasts, I've driven other cars and you feel like if you push it a little it will fall apart, but never with the Mazda. Pushing hard, there is a bit of understeer, but that's to be expected from FWD car. It has plenty of up and go as well...
