Small crossovers are a vogue segment, drawing buyers up from lower hatchbacks and down from bigger SUVs alike. The newest entrant, creating significant buzz, is the Toyota C-HR. Australia’s biggest-selling brand has taken its time joining the fray, but based on our favourable first impression, it has been well worth the wait...

Mazda CX-3 Akari v Fiat 500X Pop Star: Comparison review

You want to join the growing army of people moving into small crossover SUVs, but you aren’t necessarily the sensible family type. You want something a little more style-focused. What do you buy?

2016 Mazda CX-3 S Touring (AWD) review

I love the look of my white Mazda CX-3. I find it economical and a pleasure to drive. I travel approximately 60kms a day, and it costs me about $40 to $50 a week to fill it it up, depending on the price of unleaded fuel and I alway put in 95 RON and above. I do find it disappointing however, in that there is no middle console and only a single CD player, my previous Mazda had a 6 stacker and I do miss this feature...

2016 Mazda CX-3 Akari (FWD) Review

We purchased this car earlier in 2016 as stock started to become available again on the market after a long shortage. This is the first compact SUV's we have purchased and must say it is one of the best purchases we have made. Great ride height, great looks and amazing fuel economy are just some of the highlights on this car...

2015 Mazda CX-3 Maxx (FWD) Review

Ground clearance is too low in comparison with HR-V & Subaru XV. No fun in this respect. Really would like to it up to 215 with teflon spacer and thereafter 235/70/R16 tyres. Dashboard level should be higher & rounder towards the windscreen. Performance is good and sport button is interesting. I was looking for a compact SUV that provides good space and great technology...
