Mazda Celebrates Miata Heritage With 30th Anniversary Edition Model

The Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary edition pays homage to the car’s legacy. Unique and exclusive features include Racing Orange paint and special serial number badging. Mazda dropped the 30th Anniversary edition Miata at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show recently. It was, after all, at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show when the Miata first graced the world. Despite all the expected amazement that these little guys have been around since the USSR was a thing, the Miata is still the best bang for your buck...

One More Thing About That Mazda Crossover…

Amid the hoopla surrounding last week’s Chicago Auto Show and its many new and refreshed trucks and crossovers, Mazda teased a butt shot of a mysterious new crossover bound for a Geneva reveal next month. Mazda’s crossovers, especially the CX-5, garner more enthusiast attention than, say, a Hyundai or Toyota CUV, due to the zoom-zoom […] The post One More Thing About That Mazda Crossover… appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Shoei’s IT-HT Equipped With HUD Will Debut 2020

The Smart Helmet Confirmed At the last CES, NS West and Shoei teamed up to bring a unique smart helmet with a head-up display (HUD) called the IT-HT. Shoei just confirmed it.

2019 Mazda CX-3 GT AWD Review – Napoleon Complex

The Napoleon complex, of course, is where those of smaller stature overcompensate by being overly aggressive. Named for the legendarily short French emperor (who may or may not have actually been all that tiny), those so afflicted may be excessively loud, with a temper matching their height. We car enthusiasts tend to anthropomorphize our four-wheeled […] The post 2019 Mazda CX-3 GT AWD Review – Napoleon Complex appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Guess Who: Mazda to Debut Mystery Crossover at Geneva Auto Show

It’s the Chicago Auto Show this week, but some manufacturers are already teasing models for March’s Geneva International Motor Show. Despite many automakers taking a powder on next month’s event, Mazda just announced plans to unveil a new compact crossover in Switzerland. Our best guess is that this is a preliminary concept for something that […] The post Guess Who: Mazda to Debut Mystery Crossover at Geneva Auto Show appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Don’t Expect a Return of Mazdaspeed

These days it seems as though every automaker, no matter how small, has a performance division on hand to offer up the occasional heart-pounding model variant to be coveted by enthusiasts. However, it only seems that way. Many brands have to go without. Despite once branding itself as the everyday performance brand, Mazda hasn’t delivered […] The post Don’t Expect a Return of Mazdaspeed appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Wall Street Wary of Tesla’s New 34-year-old CFO

Tesla’s stock price took a tumble after CEO Elon Musk announced, at the end of a Thursday night earnings call, that Chief Financial Officer Deepak Ahuja was heading into retirement. Ahuja joined Tesla in 2008, 15 years after first joining Ford and becoming CFO of its AutoAlliance joint venture with Mazda.

QOTD: Are Compact Pickups Worth Pursuing?

True compact pickups don’t exist in any showroom near you or I, but that doesn’t stop some of us — your author, for example — from eyeballing the black, regular cab Mazda B2600 4×4 that just blasted past on a snowy city street, motoring unimpeded to its destination like a boss that it is.

The 2019 Mazda 3 Is Light on Sticks and Heavier on Price, but It’s a Very Different Situation North of the Border

There’s more than just differing levels of enthusiasm for the letter “u” separating Americans from their Canadian neighbors. There’s a powertrain divide, too, and in no vehicle line is this more apparent than in Mazda’s new 3 compact sedan and hatch. You read the first drive review on Monday, and some of you perhaps recoiled […] The post The 2019 Mazda 3 Is Light on Sticks and Heavier on Price, but It’s a Very Different Situation North of the Border appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Will the Aborted Mazda 2 Line Finally Make It Here in Full?

It’s already half here. The Toyota Yaris sedan, formerly the Scion iA, is the rebadged twin of the subcompact Mazda launched in Montreal in 2015. You’ll note that Mazda does not sell a second-generation 2 in North America, making that launch a relatively pointless endeavor for the automaker. Now that Toyota has gone ahead and […] The post Will the Aborted Mazda 2 Line Finally Make It Here in Full? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Nissan Maxima: Athletic. Luxurious. But Too Expensive?

The 2019 Nissan Maxima gets a styling refresh for the new year.  It retains its powerful V6 motor but the transmission is a gray area. The new Maxima is luxurious but the price point may scare buyers off.  Ah yes, the Maxima. This is purportedly Nissan’s four-door sports car. That’s a bold claim if you ask me. However, even past models of the Nissan Maxima came equipped with strong and bulletproof motors. It also came with sporty handling and a taut ride, which is a Maxima trademark. It’s good...

2019 Mazda 3 First Drive – A Cohesive Compact?

We travelled to the small and traffic-free city of Los Angeles last week to check out the newly revamped 2019 Mazda 3, the first product launched under the automaker’s equally new premium philosophy. The next-gen compact apparently heralds the introduction of other higher-end models. So, is this all-important foundational compact car any good?

2019 Mazda3: Two Flavors & Plenty of Extras

The 2019 Mazda3 comes in two styles, sedan and hatchback. A manual transmission is available in certain combinations. The list of connectivity and safety features is impressive.  Mazda keeps cranking these little guys out and it’s easy to see why. The Mazda3 is the best-selling car for the Japanese brand. I know, that’s kind of sad. I was hoping for the Miata, but it’s not a sports car world I’m afraid. So what makes the 2019 Mazda3 so hot? The usual stuff for Mazda: value and lots of goodies ...

2019 Mazda 3 Pricing: Engine and Content Upgrades Carry a Premium

Mazda’s next-generation 3 sedan and hatch heads to dealers in March, where buyers can kiss the idea of a “base” engine goodbye — at least until the innovative Skyactiv-X motor shows up. Until then, the 2019 3 fields just one power source: the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G four-cylinder, which makes 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

Supra Vs. Z4: The Fine Line Between Toyota & BMW Sports Cars

The 2020 Toyota Supra is destined for greatness. But there’s a problem. The BMW Z4 M40i is basically the same car albeit with a more powerful motor. Which begs the question: when is a Toyota sports car not a BMW? Where does one end and the other begin? The much anticipated hype is over. In the immortal words of my colleague Tony Borroz, it’s time to stop frothing at the mouth since the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally here. And boy, what a journey it has been, huh? I’m pretty sure Toyota did ev...

30th Anniversary Edition Mazda MX-5 Bound for Chicago

Mazda’s whipping something up to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the MX-5, issuing a teaser to elicit some excitement. Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t give us much to go on.
