This week Mandy Turner and Trent Nikolic are recording from Tasmania at the CarAdvice event where five readers got the chance to experience being a motoring journalist for a day in the 2019 Mazda CX-9.

In car news, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC has been revealed, Apple has reported its first self-driving crash, the Ford Endura ST-Line has been confirmed for Australia, and the Lexus UX will be launching without Apple CarPlay Down Under.
