Australia's cheapest new cars

Looking for a new car on a small budget? Here are eight of the cheapest new cars available Australia-wide, right now. As you would expect, they are all micro or light cars and, unless otherwise stated, the price excludes on-road costs like registration, stamp duty and CTP. If you shop around, though, you can find great drive-away deals and special offers...

2016 Mazda 2 Maxx Sedan Review

The 2016 Mazda 2 Maxx four-door proves that compact sedans needn't be boring...

2016 Mazda 2 Sedan Review

There’s always been something a little NQR (not quite right) about baby sedans based on city-sized hatchbacks. Fortunately, with the arrival of the new Mazda 2 sedan, that’s no longer the case. Booted versions of most brands’ smallest models typically have awkward proportions, often failing to blend the donor hatches’ sharply rising beltlines with their high-set boots, and exaggerated overhangs, with any sort of aesthetic nous...

2015 Mazda 2 Neo Review

The range's entry-level automatic, the all-new Mazda 2 Neo should be an easy pick for young buyers and their parents alike...

2015 Mazda 2 Genki Review

The Mazda 2 is consistently a top three seller in the light car segment, battling it out with the Hyundai i20 and the Toyota Yaris. In fact you could argue that among private buyers, it is the most popular car in its segment. And better yet, the 2015 Mazda 2 is a new car, inside and out. Compared to the previous generation, it’s bigger...

Mazda 2 Old v New Comparison: Second-generation Maxx v third-generation Maxx

The all-new Mazda 2 launches into a segment that includes names like Jazz, Yaris, Fiesta and Polo. But just how much has changed since its predecessor, and is it enough to justify an upgrade? Now in its third generation, the new Mazda 2 builds on the modern styling and engaging drive of the highly successful second-generation...

Mazda 2 Old v New Comparison: Second-generation Maxx v third-gen Maxx

The all-new Mazda 2 represents the latest and greatest in Mazda's light car arsenal. But, is it worth an upgrade from the old car?

City car comparison : Mazda 2 v Volkswagen Polo v Toyota Yaris v Honda Jazz v Renault Clio

In the past few months, fresh technology once the reserve of expensive premium cars has made a final cascade to one of the most affordable classes – light hatchbacks. The ‘cascade effect’ is nothing new in the automotive industry, where advanced equipment starts only in the priciest cars and eventually filters down into cheaper models as years go by...

Mazda 2 v Suzuki Swift: Comparison review

The Mazda 2 and the Suzuki Swift continue to be favourites with Australian consumers despite being two of the older members of the city car class. The duo accounts for one in four sales in the segment – impressive considering the pint-sized Mazda launched way back in 2007 and will be replaced by an all-new model early next year and the Suzuki, released in 2010, is also about halfway through its life...

Mazda overtakes Holden in 2015: First full-importer to finish second overall

By beating Holden in the 2015 sales race, Mazda has become the first full-line vehicle importer to crack the top-two in the Australian market for a full calendar year. The Japanese brand sold 114,024 vehicles in 2015, representing healthy growth of 13.2 per cent over 2014.

ANCAP crash test results: Audi TT scores four stars, Mazda 2 and CX-3 get five

In what is surely a confusing outcome for all involved, the Mazda CX-3 has managed to score the maximum five-star crash rating courtesy of the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) less than a week after it was announced the model scored four stars in Euro NCAP testing...

2010 Mazda 2 Neo Review

I've written a few Owner reviews for my last couple of cars, including a Fiesta ST and GH Mazda6. Now I've had a few before that, including a 2007 Mazda2 Maxx auto which was written off, which makes for an interesting comparison to my latest acquisition. I lost my off street parking and am forced to fight the tight streets of the inner-East of Sydney...

2012 Mazda 2 Neo Review

Nippy, good looking little car, comfortable, expensive to service, although all modern car builders continue hell bent on building their healthy maintenance margins on the backs of their customers. The Mazda 2 does most things pretty well, although ours is a little bit noisy in the mornings with squeaky rear shocks...

2016 Mazda 2 Maxx Review

I cannot speak for durability. However, this little car (GSX in NZ, with satnav, climate control, 16" diamoncut mags, reverse camera, blindspot monitor, speech control, and other things I hope to find out more about soon). I was at the local recycling plant when I noticed the Mazda 2 beside our Swift 1.4...

2015 Mazda 2 Genki Review

We are spoiled for choice when it comes to small cars, some are cheap and nasty, others little gems. I was in the market for a new small car around $20,000, manual, decent performance, reliable, fun to drive and easy to drive in the city. I test-drove, pretty much, everything available and the shortlist was the Renault Clio, Volkswagen Polo and Mazda 2...
