Miles Downard is a Chartered Accountant who obtained his Bachelor of Accounting degree through Rhodes University. His passion for all things finance is only surpassed by a deep seated love of all things motoring. An avid motoring journalist since 2006 and currently involved in multiple motoring related projects, including dabbling in amateur motorsport, Miles can most often be found in his element behind the wheel of a rear wheel drive V8 monster, pedal to the metal, eating up the asphalt.
Mazda recently enhanced the specification level of its CX3 crossover which really does put it very close to the premium segment stalwarts from Germany. It’s a cracking car, as BizNews Motoring editor Miles Downard finds out.
In order to keep things fresh, Ford recently introduced an all new EcoSport. This one is based on the new Fiesta’s architecture. And it’s a mighty good platform too, as we found out earlier in the year with the Fiesta itself.
