2021 Mazda CX-8 Asaki LE AWD diesel review

There's no doubting the CX-8 range-topper is pricey. But who does this plush six-seater cater for with Mazda's SUV line-up already plentiful?

Australia's Small SUV class is arguably one of the toughest segments in the new-car market, with nearly a dozen contenders competing for attention.

We pit an unorthodox choice from the orthodox brand against the orthodox choice from an unorthodox brand.

2021 4x4 Ute Off-road mega test

You can see it in the traffic. Four-wheel-drive utes are more popular than ever, and account for almost one in five (17.5 per cent) of all new vehicle sales in Australia based on sales data from January to April 2021. Indeed, between the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, four-wheel-drive double cab utes have been the top-selling vehicles outright for the past five years in a row, and are well on the way to notching up a sixth...

2021 Mazda BT-50 v Isuzu D-Max comparison

Electric encyclopaedia: Every car brand's electric vehicle plans – Part Three: Mazda to Porsche

It's safe to say the automotive industry is currently undergoing the greatest shift since its very inception, with electrification and autonomy widely agreed to form the basis of the future of the new-car market. It can seem almost daily that a major car maker unveils a new electric vehicle, or announces plans to go all-electric in the coming years and decades – so often so that it can be a challenge to keep track of and stay on top of every brand's plans...

2022 Mazda CX-5 rendered: Next-gen mid-size SUV goes rear-wheel drive

There’s a new Mazda CX-5 mid-size SUV on the horizon – and here’s what we reckon it could look like. Spy photos published earlier this month brought us our first look at a lightly-camouflaged version of what’s widely believed to be the new CX-5 – or CX-50, as some rumours persist it will be called – that’s thought to be unveiled late next year, ahead of an Australian launch in 2022 or 2023...

These are the small SUVs you can buy right now

The automotive world is currently plagued with supply issues causing a great number of new cars to be in short stock. But if you need to take delivery if a new small SUV right now, there are a select few models in good supply in the lead up to the end of the financial year...

2022 Mazda CX-5: Next-generation mid-size SUV spied for the first time

The next-generation 2022 Mazda CX-5 (or CX-50, as some rumours suggest it could be called) has been spied testing for the first time in the US. Images published exclusively by American outlet The Fast Lane Car show Mazda's new CX-5 mid-size SUV won't stray too far in the visual department from the current model, with 'conventional' SUV proportions, sharp rear haunch lines, and slim lighting units and grilles in line with the Japanese brand's wider range...

2002 Mazda 323 Protege Sports Edition review

I bought this Mazda 323 in January 2019 as a downgrade to a cheap runaround car whilst saving for a house. Over two years later and 70,000km put on it, I'm still driving it after buying my house a year ago. I was scouring Facebook marketplace for a car close to me and I wasn't particularly fussed over what it would be, except that I would have preferred a manual...

2012 Mazda 3 Neo review

In late 2020 I bought a 2012 Mazda 3 sedan in a private sale. The purchase was made to replace our mid-spec 2008 Honda Civic VTI-L, which had 235,000 kilometres on the clock and will be used for my 170 kilometre round trip commute up the Pacific Highway to and from work each day. Put simply we wanted a younger car with fewer clicks on the clock...

2004 Mazda MX-5 SE review

This is my third MX-5, all NBs. I bought the first one post retirement, and enjoyed it for five years. It was near new, owned by a couple for whom pending parenthood made the MX5 impractical. You can't fit two people and a baby capsule into a two seater roadster. Unfortunately, family commitments forced me to swap the MX-5 for a Commodore ute...

2018 Mazda CX-9 Azami (AWD) review

Two years ago I wrote an Owner Review of my 2015 Mercedes C250d, ending by saying, “Maybe when it's time for an SUV (I think we all need to admit it's inevitable...), I'd be very happy for the updated C-Class sedan to replace my Lexus". Well fast-forward a year and here I am writing about my first SUV, a Mazda CX-9 Azami AWD, which ended up replacing my trusty Lexus IS250, whilst we kept the Merc...
