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...

It's a segment presenting as a would-be off-roader while retaining the practical capabilities of a family hatchback...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Akera Review

The updated CX 5 has filled in the little gaps that the previous model still had and in doing so now sets the bar very high for a sub $60000.00 vehicle! BMW and Audi would be starting to get a little frustrated with how this SUV keeps closing the gap between them in quality and at a price that is making people ask just why am I forking out so much more on a European vehicle that really offers little more than badge creed over the Mazda...

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.
