One of the easiest jobs in the world is that of an armchair critic. Especially in today’s egocentric society, it’s so convenient to sit behind the safety of your keyboard and spread hatred to whatever takes your fancy. I kept that in mind while reviewing this new Mazda bakkie…
While our automotive market surges ahead with downsizing and/or electrification, there are a few vehicles which either didn’t get the memo yet, or they’re desperately waiting for a newer version to take the baton. And with both their names promising dynamism, how could we not compare these two oddball SUV’s?
Mazda is in big trouble. This is merely an assumption on my part because I used to think that the left-field Japanese brand was simply dancing to its own tune. But after testing their small(est) CX crossover, I got the feeling that they are in a spot of bother…
Mazda het oor die afgelope paar jaar al meer van ‘n goeie indruk begin lewer. Dit gebeur bitter selde dat ons by NamWheels fout vind met ‘n Mazda model, bloot omdat dit goeie waarde vir geld bied.
The Mazda BT-50 was never an obvious choice for bakkie buyers, mostly because the Japanese brand went for bizarre designs to distinguish their product. So, did they learn their lesson with this all-new 2021 model?
Do you remember that kid in school who happily played by themselves? Maybe later you met a friend or colleague who confidently danced to their own tune? Well, in my humble opinion, that’s what Mazda is doing.
Special Editions. In the world of Japanese pick-ups and that British island in the North Atlantic, a special edition has become its very own antithesis. They’re so common that you’ll be hard pressed to find a standard model… so why did Mazda decide to plaster the word “Carbon” over this CX-5?
New car with an out-dated drivetrain or reliability in a modern suit? We find out:
The premium pity
Stuff you wouldn’t find in the sales brochure. That’s what I like to base most of my reviews on because – let’s face it – you probably know all about this car’s airbag count and active driver aids.
While everyone is rushing to market with their twin-scroll compact SUV’s, Mazda appears to be fast asleep. Or are they?
