Both the Mazda 6 sedan GT and the Toyota Camry SL V6 are medium family cars with performance aspirations that stick to a tried and tested formula. This isn’t to say that they are generic, far from it, both of these cars are aesthetically and mechanically pleasing without being clones of each other. The Mazda 6 is a striking car that will certainly lure in drivers seeking something more inspirational. The Toyota Camry is more workmanlike, and it will certainly excel as a fleet car. Let’s take a closer look at what these cars have to offer and how they stack up against each other.
The small car non premium segment is one of the hotly contested areas in the Australian car sales market. The mid year 2018 sales figures have the Toyota Corolla ahead of the Mazda 3 by a very small margin. At this modest spending point, drivers would like to get the best bang for their buck, but most cars in this segment don’t offer much to get excited about. However, both of these cars are a popular choice for a reason, and we thought it may be interesting to look at what they have to offer.
The third generation Mazda 6 is now with us, and the entire range is supplied with excellent tyres that have been fitted at the factory. It’s fair to say that using Original Equipment (OE) for repairs and replacement is almost always the best choice. This will keep the car as close as possible to Mazda’s design ethos and engineering tolerances. When it comes to tyres, it’s not always possible to get the exact same set, and a close match may have to suffice. Tyres wear out, and when they need to be replaced, it’s natural to look at all the options available. In recent years we have seen run flat tyres become more widely available, but some drivers may not fully understand how they work.
Despite the initial appearances the Mazda CX-3 has undergone a few changes for this latest release. Mazda has a great recipe for success, and they have stuck to this for this update to their small SUV. There is an excellent selection of variants and engine on offer and plenty of new tech and safety improvements. Let’s take a closer look at what the new CX-3 range brings to the market.
The Mazda BT-50 is a tough ute that isn’t afraid to get dirty to get serious work done. However, it also spans the gap between a ute and an SUV to give you a valid family vehicle for family adventures at the weekend. Despite its fierce reputation the BT-50 still requires regular maintenance to keep it working within Mazda factory standards. Although getting a service carried out can be an inconvenience there are some great benefits to enjoy.
The Mazda 3 range is deservedly popular with Australian car buyers for a variety of reasons. It’s fun to drive, stylish inside and out, has excellent fuel consumption and there are two engine options available. If all that wasn’t enough, you can get a Mazda 3 sedan or hatchback. Every variant now has auto emergency braking (AEB) fitted as standard, and there are other active safety features on board. Let’s take a look at what the range has to offer so that you can make an informed choice.
As drivers, we often hear about the various merits of fuel efficiency. This is a very common term used to sell cars, but in reality, most people have no idea what it actually means. In this article we will take a look at what fuel efficiency is and some factors that can affect it on the road.
A Mazda service carried out regularly by trained technicians is a great way to keep your car running well. A well cared for modern car doesn’t really ask for very much in the way of serious attention or ongoing maintenance
The Mazda 2 is an excellent vehicle for using during the week and for trips away at the weekend. Although it’s not an SUV or crossover, it can still carry a decent amount of luggage for a family excursion. The key to getting the most out of a more modest sized boot is to rethink how you would pack a boot.
The new 2018 top spec Mazda 3 SP25 Astina probably has just about everything that you would want in a prestige format smaller car. However, it’s up against extremely strong competition from the likes of the Audi A3, and this will lead customers to question its value.
