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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
