Rare Rides: The Gran Turismo Dream – a 1990 Mazda Eunos Cosmo

Today’s Rare Ride is a sporting luxury coupe with a complex rotary engine. It’s a car which was destined for America, but never quite made it. It is, of course, the Eunos Cosmo. By Mazda. The Cosmo name was a historical one for the Mazda brand. In 1967, the Cosmo was presented as a luxurious […] The post Rare Rides: The Gran Turismo Dream – a 1990 Mazda Eunos Cosmo appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Best Convertibles For 2019? Here Are 10 Fast & Fun Options

Not everyone loves driving with the top down. Yet I can think of no better way to welcome the warm and sunny weather than driving a convertible. No matter what you call them (convertible, ragtop, Targa, soft-top, cabriolet, spider, etc.), convertibles have somehow lost their favor among the sea of new crossovers and modern SUVs. It’s easy to understand why. Setting The Stage Convertibles are not the roomiest or the most practical choice. In some cases, a convertible is usually “choppier” than ...

Let’s Talk About Six: Mazda Confirms New Inline Engine in Development

Much of the news surrounding Mazda this past year has concerned powerplants: a new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-banger for the CX-5 crossover and 6 sedan, a sort-of sparkless Skyactiv-X mill that still doesn’t have a North American arrival date, a lackluster diesel that took its sweet time getting here, and the brand’s continued lack of electric […] The post Let’s Talk About Six: Mazda Confirms New Inline Engine in Development appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Two Tribes: When a Suburban Crossover Owner Butts Heads With Urban/Environmental Advocates, Who Wins?

That headline is only the second 1980s musical reference of the day, which might point to a lack of sleep on the part of your author. Blame a raging sinus infection, or perhaps exposure to a heavy Twitter conversation that began yesterday and continues into today. I’m a passive observer in all of this, as […] The post appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Cadillac CT5: Reviving the American Sport-Luxury Sedan

Inspired by the Escala concept, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 is the replacement for the CTS. Cadillac’s Super Cruise system for the CT5 utilizes LiDAR map data and high-precision GPS. Two engines and three different trim levels will be offered when the CT5 becomes available.  The 2020 Cadillac CT5 needs to fulfill a demanding role. It strives to resuscitate the dying sports sedan segment while giving buyers a worthy alternative to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, and BMW 3-Series. Unfortunately, i...

On ICE: Mazda’s Skyactiv-X Wonder Engine Isn’t in a Hurry to Get Stateside

Much-touted engines seem to take a while to arrive in North America, at least when it comes to Mazda. To the brand’s credit, those engines, at least in the case of the Skyactiv-D diesel, do eventually make it to these shores — though many wonder whether Mazda should have even bothered. The Skyactiv-X is a […] The post On ICE: Mazda’s Skyactiv-X Wonder Engine Isn’t in a Hurry to Get Stateside appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The Mazda CX-5 Diesel’s Economic Case Is Nonexistent

Finally. Mazda’s promised diesel-powered CX-5 is now open for pre-order in the United States, years after we began chronicling the Skyactiv-D’s lethargic march to North America. TTAC’s coverage of Mazda diesel delays goes back nearly six years, when the future of Mazda’s Skyactiv-D was linked to a future Mazda 6.

2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Inching Ever Closer to Perfection

Does a crossover really need to be good to drive, or is mere competence good enough to win buyers? Most carmakers settle for “good enough,” and yet they keep selling. Mazda, of course, doesn’t settle. Performance is baked into everything it offers. I’m certain that if Mazda offered a panel van, some fool out there […] The post 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Inching Ever Closer to Perfection appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding

It seems the idea of a sport-utility sedan just doesn’t resonate, despite automakers’ best efforts. Oh well, at least there’s still the prospect of greater traction and somewhat improved fuel economy coming to Mazda’s slinky 6 sedan. During this week’s New York reveal of the much-delayed CX-5 diesel, the automaker mentioned that the 2.2-liter oil […] The post Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mazda CX-5 Diesel: Giving Yourself the Skyactiv-D

Mazda has certainly bent over backwards to get its new diesel to the U.S. market. Originally slated to premiere inside the 2017 CX-5, Mazda’s Skyactiv-D failed to receive approval from the Environmental Protection Agency. We’ve followed the story for a while, including when it concerned the Mazda 6, sometimes wondering why the company would even bother pursuing […] The post Mazda CX-5 Diesel: Giving Yourself the Skyactiv-D appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

U.S. Auto Sales, Q1 2019: Plenty of Red, Plus a Few Bright Spots

Talking heads have been warning for days that the auto industry should prepare itself for a rougher than usual ride in 2019, speculating that sales for the first quarter would be softer than what we’ve seen in past years.

2019 Mazda CX-9 GT AWD Review – Style, Substance

Yet another three-row crossover. Yawn. It’s even painted white, like the appliance it’s certain to be. But people keep buying these things, like it or not.

2019 Mazda 3 AWD First Drive Review – Holding It All Down

Earlier this year, Mazda showed off its all-new 3 sedan in Los Angeles. The new compact’s intent is to impress a revised, upscale image on the brand.

Acura, Infiniti, Lexus: How the Japanese luxury brands got started

Born a grown-up, Mazda’s elegant CX-30 crossover fills a narrow niche

Mazda traveled to the 2019 Geneva Auto Show to introduce a crossover named CX-30 that slots between the CX-3 and the CX-5.

As promised, Mazda threw the sheets off its mystery vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing a small crossover that’s not too small.
