Mazda MX-5, Audi A3 Cabriolet and Abarth 595 Convertible 2014 review

It's the season for convertible cruising and the wind-in-the-hair feeling need not come at great expense.

Top-down driving with the wind in your hair isn't solely the province of the rich and famous. For as little as $21,000 drive-away, the sticker price of the little Fiat 500C convertible, you can savour spring motoring.

Convertibles don't have to be fast, just cool. And they don't have to be practical because you - and sometimes your partner - are probably the only people enjoying the ride. But they have to be safe.

The car that keeps its cool when you're not in it

Tired of returning to hot car? You need one that cools itself before you get in it.
 
A day at the beach no longer means returning to a stifling hot car and seats that can burn the back of your legs.
 
A new smartphone app can switch on the air-conditioning up to 10 minutes before you're ready to get in the car.
 
There is just one catch: for now the technology is only available on a Mercedes-Benz limousine that's expected to cost $310,000 when it goes on sale next year. But it will be available on more affordable models within two years.

Police warn drivers about Apple Watch

Police are concerned about drivers using Apple Watch while behind the wheel.
 
The Apple iPhone 6 -- with a choice of two new large screens -- goes on sale across Australia today, but police are concerned about the Apple Watch due in February 2015 and the adverse impact it may have on driver safety. 
 
The Apple Watch and other smartphone watches such as the one made by Samsung will be "next to impossible" for police to enforce if they’re used while driving as they are a "wearable device", according to senior highway patrol police.
