Driving Mulholland - exploring Mulholland Drive in a Mazda MX-5

Read the article here. Now, Mulholland is very, very accessible. It's just north of Beverly Hills. It's only taking me maybe 15 minutes to get here on a Tuesday morning, and that's in a bit of traffic. Having never been along here before, it does feel instantly familiar...

Mazda MX-5 Old v New Comparison - First-generation NA v fourth-generation ND

Read the article here. Like it or not, the '80s were cool. Madonna and Prince were at the height of their success and big hair wasn't just acceptable, it was encouraged. But a very special thing happened in February of 1989: the Mazda MX-5 was born. It all started with the first-generation Mazda MX-5, the NA. It had an 85kW/130Nm 1...

2016 Mazda 3 Touring sedan Review

Read the article here. The small car market is one of the biggest segments for new car sales in Australia, but when you think of small cars, you probably think of hatchbacks. Those Models do make up the majority of sales, but small sedans - like the Mazda 3 - also play their part in appealing to buyers. Lets find out why...

Tasmania Weekend Road Trip: Cockle Creek in the Mazda BT-50 — Australia's southernmost street

Read the article here. We're all busy people — so it's important to take time out every now and then. Well, that's the excuse we came up with. Last year I had the chance to drive to the northernmost point of Australia with Volkswagen in the Amarok. With that trip a fond, but albeit distant memory, we conjured up a plan to drive another ute — a Mazda BT-50 to the southernmost point in Australia...

2016 Mazda Ice Academy - Crested Butte, Colorado - Video Review

If you’re thinking an Australian summer is exactly the wrong place to be testing AWD systems and the benefits of winter tyres on snow, you’d be exactly right. Most of the time an Australian winter wouldn’t even suffice but that’s a moot point thankfully. CarAdvice was recently able to attend just such a test session at the annual Mazda Ice Academy in stunning Crested Butte, Colorado...

2016 Mazda MX-5 RF hardtop walk around at New York Auto Show

Read the article here. The Mazda MX-5 RF made its world premiere in New York, bringing a new twist to the traditional idea of how to produce a folding hardtop. The ‘RF’ in Mazda MX-5 RF, as you’re no doubt wondering, stands for Retractable Fastback, which outlines what you need to know first and foremost about this new take on the world’s most popular convertible...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Review

Medium Passenger Segment – say it out loud and even the name of the segment is boring. It’s enough to put the genuine motoring enthusiast into a deep slumber. Don’t believe me? Have a listen to the following luminaries… Honda Accord, Hyundai i40, Nissan Altima, Peugeot 508, Renault Latitude, Subaru Liberty, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Jetta...

2016 Mazda MX-5 1.5L v 2.0L track comparison

Read the article here. That Mazda offers a choice of 1.5- and 2.0-litre versions of its fourth-generation MX-5 Roadster begs a simple and obvious question: which is the better buy? The answers, though, are numerous and more complex, each starting with the words ‘it depends’. It depends if you plan using it as a daily driver or as that ‘third car’ for sunny weekend touring...

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club Review : 2-litre at Laguna Seca

Like the 1.5-litre version we drove in Scotland earlier this year, this more powerful version represents sports car design in its purest form. But now armed with 118kW and 200Nm (up from 96 and 150) this scalpel sharp MX-5 is an enthusiast’s dream, with noticeably more go whenever you need it, especially when scooting out of corners...

2016 Mazda MX-5 track day review – Sandown Raceway

It's 10 years since the third-generation Mazda MX-5 first went on sale in Australia and more than 25 years since the nameplate debuted back in 1989 – I was six. And now, the iconic Japanese drop-top is back, powered by its smallest capacity engine ever. But is it still fun? Time for another CarAdvice weekend warrior track test… Last time we were at Sandown Raceway in an MX-5, it was in the previous generation car and it was 2014...

2016 Mazda BT-50 Review: Coober Pedy Off-Road Adventure

We don't usually get the opportunity to get this far off the beaten track, but today we're in the beautiful Arkaringa station in Northern South Australia - just north of Coober Pedy - to put the 2016 Mazda BT-50 through its paces. Out here, there’s a lot of dirt, a lot of dust, and hardly any people...
