Mazda Reviews

Mazda has participated in the Australian market since the 1960s when it was regarded more as a maker of sound, if unremarkable cars. It is well known for its flirtation with the Wankel rotary engine, and its revival of the sports car in the 1980s with its cute MX-5, but in recent years it has zoomed to unprecedented popularity on the back of an appealing range of light, small and mid-sized hatches, sedans and wagons, an extensive range of SUVs, and a range of utilities, many with diesel engine options. Models include the Mazda2, 3, and 6 passenger cars, the CX-3, CX-5 and CX-7 SUVs, MX-5 sports roadster, and the BT-50 utilities.
