Mazda claims an AEB 'safety revolution'

Mazda Australia claims to have completed its "standard safety revolution" after adding autonomous emergency braking (AEB) as standard to its CX-3 small crossover last week. The company has progressively made its Smart City Brake Support - Forward (SCBS-F) system standard on its core passenger and SUV range, putting it at the pointy end of the market. As of now, the Mazda 2, Mazda 3, Mazda 6, CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 all have AEB standard.

2017 Subaru BRZ Sports Pack special edition on sale from $36,694

Yet another special-edition Subaru has quietly arrived in recent weeks, with the 2017 BRZ Sports Pack special edition on sale from $36,694 before on-road costs. Like other BRZ specials before it, the Sports Pack doesn't add any engine upgrades over the standard car, though there are several visual and equipment upgrades to give the Toyota 86 twin a little more street cred.

Australia's top SUV brands

It's hardly a secret at this point that SUVs are the driving force behind the Australian new vehicle market - even though the top two vehicles are actually utes. In 2017, these (often nominally) higher-riding options have in fact eclipsed sales of regular passenger vehicles - by which we mean sedans, hatches, wagons, people-movers and sports cars.
