The $52k question: Which car would each CarAdvice journo pick?

Celebrating 52 episodes of the CarAdvice podcast, this question was put to each writer on the team: if you had $52,000, what new car would you buy? You can catch their responses on this week's show, but if you can't get away with some listening time, we've listed each below. Skoda Octavia RS230 wagon: $43,190 It is a practical sleeper. I’d option it up with a couple of things, about $5000's worth, which comes in underneath the criteria, and I have enough left over for a party!

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.

2017 Mazda CX-3 pricing and specs

The updated 2017 Mazda CX-3 crossover has arrived, bringing additional active safety tech, some cabin design tweaks, and claimed improvements to the ride, handling and noise-suppression. This is in exchange for price hikes of between $200 and $500 across most of the range, which remains one of the widest in its segment by comprising four spec levels, petrol and diesel engines, manual and automatic transmissions, and front- or all-wheel drive.
