2017 Mazda 2 Maxx review

The 2017 Mazda 2 Maxx may be a solid and safe choice in the popular city car segment, but it does lack the interior refinement of its competitors.

Mazda BT-50 tackles the Birdsville Track

I have to be honest. When I was asked to drive 636 kilometres on a dirt road to the middle of nowhere with, gasp, no phone service, I was hesitant. But after coming to the realisation I had never been to outback Australia before, I simply had to say yes. After all, a break from emails and social media might actually do me some good...

Mazda SkyActiv-X review

Though it seems hard to fathom for us here in Australia, Mazda is actually a small player in the global automotive market. The Japanese brand’s dominance in Australia – as the second best-selling manufacturer – is very much an anomaly on the world stage. The point here, though, is that as a car company, Mazda’s research and development budget is not on the same scale as the likes of Toyota, Honda or Nissan...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo sedan review

The Mazda 2 Neo might be the cheapest sedan in the Japanese car maker's range, but it does offer premium quality... mostly.

2017 Mazda 2 GT hatch review

The new flagship 2017 Mazda 2 GT will appeal to buyers who want the brand's stylish design and a funky interior, but it falls short in other ways.

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report five – Team review

It's been a couple of months since we took delivery of our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer, and in that time it's been driven by numerous CarAdvice employees. So far we've covered urban commuting, infotainment, along with interior comfort and practicality. However we haven't really heard from the wider team...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report four – Interior comfort and practicality

Our Mazda 2 Neo has settled in quite nicely at the CarAdvice Melbourne office, proving to be an ideal vehicle to commute to and from the inner city. However, there have been numerous occasions where the Red Rocket has been called on to do more load-lugging duties, and for many buyers of this car you will likely have the odd occasion where a few passengers or luggage will be stuffed in the back of the little hatch...

2017 Mazda CX-3 Akari AWD review

Does the Mazda CX-3's recent update keep it at the top of the small SUV class? In flagship Akari spec, possibly not.

Would you spend $10,000-plus to improve your lap time by two seconds?

This story has a long gestation, beginning as it does back in October last year. CarAdvice co-founder Tony Crawford, was given the enviable task of representing CarAdvice (and Australia)  in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Cup Global Invitational, an SCCA sanctioned race meet at the challenging Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Northern California...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report three – Infotainment

Our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer certainly has a lot of strengths, including its cute looks, zippy drivetrain, and its comfortable driving experience. However, one major drawback  of the entry-level model is its infotainment system – or lack of. Unlike higher-spec versions of the little hatch and sedan, the Neo grade misses out on Mazda's MZD Connect infotainment system, which incorporates a 7...

Mille Miglia 2017: 90 years of automotive passion

Dating back to 1927, Italy’s Mille Miglia is one of the most iconic and historic road races on the planet. First run in the same year as the debut race on Germany’s infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife, the Mille Miglia, or ‘Thousand Miles’, starts and finishes in Brescia in northern Italy...
