2007 Mazda MX-5 Touring LE review

I wanted a coupe/convertible and was about to spend $40k on a 2007 BMW Z4 3.2-litre with low kilometres. I'd test driven a Z4, but as I'd owned a 1989 MX-5 brand new, and had liked it, I saw a 2007 MX-5 in a mate's car yard and took it for a spin. It has a 2-litre, 6-speed drivetrain, with a limited slip diff, Bose stereo, full leather upholstery, and reasonable boot space - considering the retractable roof...

2013 Mazda 6 Atenza review

The 2013 Mazda 6 Atenza is a fantastic family-oriented sedan. But… you don’t need to have a family to drive one – I don’t! The Mazda 6 is jam-packed with Mazda’s first round of active safety features that keep our loved ones safe at all times. For a six-year-old car, the Mazda 6 still has some relatively competitive technology...
