02 MOTORING NTNE01Z01MO - V1 From previous page Mazdas non-turbo 2.5-litre petrol unit makes 139kW and 252Nm and is matched to a conventional six-speed auto. The transmission works well to find the engines sweet spot, but it can feel a little coarse under heavy acceleration as it revs high to find its power reserves. Steering is light and accurate and the Mazda is a joy to drive, feeling composed over bumps and planted through corners. Fuel use is respectable at 6.6L/100km and it only needs regular petrol. Servicing is reasonable at $1700 over five years. VERDICT The Hyundai is the sportiest of the group but a cheaper looking cabin holds it back. The Mazda is well presented but compromised for space. That leaves the Skoda as our winner, thanks to its outstanding value and spritely drive.
