2018 Mazda 3 Neo Sport sedan review

With a new infotainment system and reversing camera, not to mention a new badge, is the Neo Sport a smart entry point for the ever-popular Mazda 3 range?

2018 Mazda BT-50 review

The 2018 Mazda BT-50 has been given a bolder front-end look, upgraded equipment and an improved cost of ownership. Can it still compete in the hard-fought ute segment?

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.

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

2018 Mazda 6 revealed: Turbo petrol coming to Australia

See the full article here. Mazda has taken the wraps off the 2018 Mazda 6 at the 2017 Los Angeles motor show, debuting revised styling and the addition of a turbocharged petrol engine. The push toward a more premium design has been driven by customer demand, with the brand confirming around 61 per cent of Mazda CX-9 vehicles sold in Australia are top-specification GT or Azami models...

2017 Mazda CX-5 v Peugeot 3008 comparison

  See the full article here. The newcomer versus the champ: this isn’t some naff reference to a big money fight, but by the same token, it kind of is – because here we have the much-lauded European that’s all about swagger, going against the stalwart chart-topper with a tremendous record...

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 2 GT automatic v Volkswagen Polo 85TSI Comfortline DSG

Not everyone wants the cheapest city car they can afford. To find out which small car is worth spending (relatively) big money on, we pitch the new Volkswagen Polo 85TSI Comfortline against the flagship Mazda 2 GT. If the Volkswagen Polo hasn’t been the biggest vehicle in the city car segment, it has always been one of the most grown-up...

2018 Honda Jazz VTi-S v Mazda 2 Maxx v Suzuki Swift GL Nav comparison

Compact cars – not the most exciting segment in the motoring world is it? If you agreed with that statement, you’d be overlooking the fact that there is currently more value for money than ever before in this highly competitive city car segment...

2015-17 Mazda CX-3 Diesel recalled

Mazda has recalled the 2015-2017 CX-3 Diesel, over concerns about the engine's behaviour when run at high revs in Neutral or Park. According to the company, operating the engine at high revs in Park or Neutral could make the engine draw in residual oil accumulated in the engine intake...

2018 Mazda CX-5 pricing and specs

The second-generation Mazda CX-5 has only been on sale since March last year, but the company has already rolled out a series of updates to keep the market's best-selling SUV at the top of the pile.

2005-08 Mazda B4000 Bravo added to Takata recall

Mazda Australia has recalled the B4000, better known as the Bravo, two-wheel drive ute as part of the ever-growing Takata airbag saga.

2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami (FWD) review

Does this review sound familiar? About a year ago I published an owner review of this exact car – our 2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami. After living with the car for another year and having a few issues, I thought I would drag the pen and paper out again and rewrite the review. Well, not rewrite it...

1990 Mazda MX-5 review

Last month I bought a new car. And when I say new car, it would have been new back in April 1990. These days my original NA-series Mazda MX-5 is 28 years old. In an age of increasing technological features and safety standards, squeezing into the tiny MX-5 is like stepping back to a bygone era. The first thing you notice is the diminutive size of the vehicle...

2016 Mazda CX-3 S Touring (FWD) review

The minute I saw the CX-3 revealed, I knew it was the next car I wanted. Coming from a Mazda 3 diesel, I was hoping for the diesel, however I was not able to afford the diesel in the model I wanted (S Touring), and it didn’t come in a manual, which for me was also a contributor. I chose the manual and it is great to drive...

2006 Mazda 3 MPS review

Purchasing a Mazda 3 MPS is the best thing you will ever do. I've had my MPS for six months now and I've done 13,000km in it. It has been the most fun 13,000km I've ever done. This thing never ceases to put a smile on my face. Enough fluff, though, let's talk about the car. My particular example is an ’06 model...
