Motors & Me: Mils Muliaina, former All Black full-back and Connacht’s new signing

A soul-red Mazda CX5 2.2D automatic.

Love at first sight, or just a means to get from A to B?

It's powerful and drives smooth. I love the rear-view camera, too, which makes for easy parking.

What's under the bonnet?

Hopefully, a motor. I don't know much about engines, but I have noticed how efficient it is on fuel, which is probably due to the SKYACTIV technology to help us reduce our carbon footprint!

Petrol head or sunday driver?

Definitely a Sunday driver. I just enjoy the drive.

What was your first car?

Ford Falcon RX6 (which I got as part of the All Blacks sponsorship).

What else do/did you own?

Back in New Zealand, I owned an Audi A4.

Dream drive in a dream location?

A Mazda CX5 in South Island, New Zealand.

Passenger you'd most like on a long journey?

Rory McIlroy.

Passenger you'd least like?

Bundee Aki - My forme chiefs teammate, on his way to play with Connacht :).

What's on your playlist?

Old-school tunes, Bruno Mars and One Direction.

Mils Muliaina is a brand ambassador for Mazda.
