Medium SUV Comparison : Ford Kuga v Mazda CX-5 v Subaru Forester v Volkswagen Tiguan

Sun, sand, surf... Australians love nothing more than going to the beach. Unless of course it’s a Saturday afternoon where we drape ourselves in team colours and cheer on our side to either cross the try line or kick through the middle posts...

Diesel SUV Comparison : Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Jeep Cherokee v Volkswagen Tiguan

They don’t call Australia the big brown land for nothing. Most of us may live near the blue of the ocean and travel on roads that are black, but there is plenty of brown stuff to be found everywhere else. Country folk who want a medium SUV aren’t necessarily looking at parking prowess or kerb-hopping abilities; rather the ability to cross big distance efficiently and effectively, often on dirt, is the score...

Medium SUV Comparison : Jeep Cherokee v Mazda CX-5 v Toyota RAV4 v Nissan X-Trail v Ford Kuga v Subaru Forester v Hyundai ix35 v Honda CR-V v Mitsubishi Outlander v Kia Sportage

Assembled for this mega-test are 10 models that represent one-third of total SUV volume in Australia – and that’s without including sales for the newest contender here and catalyst for this test, the Jeep Cherokee.

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. You’d better have an idea of what you need or you’ll end buying something you don’t like the flavour of, or something that looks better than it tastes. 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...

2015 Mazda CX-5 GT Review

After 3 years of ownership, and with the warranty coming to an end, I decided it was time to replace our 2012 CX-5 GT Diesel. I had been happy with the CX-5 and it was difficult to think of another car that better suited our needs. The CX-5 had the right combination of features, performance, economy, size and practicality for our young family...

2012 Mazda CX-5 Grand Tourer Review

I'm not happy with our Mazda CX5, there is not much room in the back for our 6ft son. Also there are a few rattles in the cabin of the car, one under the wheel and the other is in the pillar on the passage side. I do like how the car drives and the way it feels on the road but no car should rattle like this one. And some of the plastics in the car feel really cheap and hard...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Tourer Review

My wife was buying something in Target the other day and the lady at the cash register saw my wife's car key sitting on the counter. It was face down so she couldn't see the emblem, but she recognised the shape. "Is that a Mazda key?" the lady asked. "Yes it is" replied my wife. "Which model do you have?" she asked again. "We have a CX-5" my wife responded...
