My #firstcar! Well, sort of. Here's the latest addition to CarAdvice's long term fleet: the 2017 Mazda 2 Neo, finished in the Japanese company's signature Soul Red paint. Starting at $14,990 before on-road costs, our tester is equipped with the optional six-speed automatic transmission ($2000), and the aforementioned special paint ($300), bringing the as-tested price to $17,290 plus ORCs...

2017 Mazda 2 review

The 2017 Mazda 2 hatch and sedan have arrived, adding AEB and G-Vectoring across the range, alongside a brand new GT flagship variant. But the big-selling Japanese offering also must face a stronger competitor set than ever, so does this running change do enough?

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.

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...
