2016 Mazda Ice Academy - Crested Butte, Colorado - Video Review

If you’re thinking an Australian summer is exactly the wrong place to be testing AWD systems and the benefits of winter tyres on snow, you’d be exactly right. Most of the time an Australian winter wouldn’t even suffice but that’s a moot point thankfully. CarAdvice was recently able to attend just such a test session at the annual Mazda Ice Academy in stunning Crested Butte, Colorado...

Mid-sized SUV sales are growing more rapidly in Australia than any other vehicle type, and the two class benchmarks based on our testing to date are the Hyundai Tucson and Mazda CX-5.

2015 Lexus NX200t v Mazda CX-5 Akera AWD: Comparison Review

While wingsuit marketing and hoverboard spin will come and go, Lexus continues to inhabit the same cosy, feature-laden, price-savvy middle ground between Euro prestige and the affordable mainstream it's occupied for its quarter-century history. And despite its funky crossover pitch and brand-shaking turbocharged motivation, the Lexus NX 200t medium SUV doesn’t venture too far from the homestead...

Mazda: our AWD is better than the rest, and we'll prove it

Tossed straight into the middle of a blizzard-hit Colorado winter, CarAdvice is spending some time this week in assessing the Mazda i-Active all-wheel-drive system on slick ice and snow - not just in isolation, but also against the competition from Honda and Subaru.

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...

CX-5 GT looks the part from the outset. LED DRL, Headlights and Tail lamps. 19" dark alloys wheels. Inside Black leather and trim with classy chrome highlights, make you feel a little better shelling out $50K on a car. Start the 2.2lt diesel engine and you would be mistaken for thinking you were in the petrol engine CX-5...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

Firstly when buying the CX5 you should take it for at least a half hour test drive and make sure you take it up some decent hills. That is when you will find out the LACK of power! I bought the 2.5 AWD and was told to keep away from the 2 Litre Model so I did but found a lack of power in the 2...

2013 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

We bought this car whilst looking for a do-it-all, all-rounder; a comfortable tourer with solid dynamics, with good standard kit (standard keyless start, touchscreen and reverse camera were rare for the class in 2013), whilst already being a Mazda fan, for their style, heritage and focus on the driver experience (I used to own a Mazda3)...
