The upgraded Mazda 6 sedan and wagon finally get a turbocharged petrol engine with poke on higher grades. But there are many more changes as part of this model update, all of which skew an already excellent car, imbued with a premium feel, a little further upmarket.

2018 Holden Commodore RS Sportwagon 2.0 petrol v Mazda 6 Touring Wagon comparison

What’s the difference between a medium and large wagon? More in size than price if you use the Mazda 6 and Holden Commodore cargo-haulers as examples. While the new, German-sourced Commodore stretches nearly 19cm beyond the Japanese 6, their respective RS and Touring variants are split by just $900...

2018 Mazda CX-5 review

Mazda has given the CX-5 a tweak: pumping up the diesel to 450Nm, putting fuel-saving cylinder deactivation on the petrol, and adding extra gear to luxury versions - in return for lower pricing. A solid upgrade for the number-one seller.
