Ten years ago, buying a vehicle meant participating in the evolution of this new category. There were no real standards, and everyone did things their own way. Today, electric vehicles are full-fledged production models, and competition is becoming increasingly fierce. However, some manufacturers are still at the stage of offering production vehicles that are more like concepts, and that's the case with Mazda and the MX-30.   This vehicle is ...
I don't know the secret of Caramilk, but I do know the secret of the MX-5. What makes this car so enjoyable to drive and pleasant in everyday life is its balance. Unlike most manufacturers who focus solely on horsepower, Mazda has always prioritized the power-to-weight ratio. The MX-5 is a lightweight car and therefore doesn't need 300 or 400 horsepower to offer a memorable driving experience. Its 181 horsepower are more than sufficient. Being a very ...
Mazda is an automaker that has its own way of doing things and doesn't aim to outperform its competitors. The brand has been successful thanks to its optimized products, quality finishing, and the performance of its engines. In fact, if Mazda vehicles weren't so affordable, one could believe the brand is part of the luxury and prestige car manufacturers. The most ironic thing about all this is that Mazda doesn't have a luxury division like most of ...
Mazda is in the midst of a transformation phase, with new generation models rolling out one after another. The CX-3 and CX-9 have been successfully replaced by the CX-30 and CX-90. However, it's the CX-50 that has been tasked with the most difficult challenge since the CX-5 remains the most popular model in Mazda's lineup to this day. Thus, the new SUV from the Japanese manufacturer has not yet officially positioned itself within its lineup, but it's ...
As you may have noticed, Mazda's lineup has seen numerous changes over the past few years. New models with new designations have entered the market. For example, the CX-30 replaced the CX-3, and the CX-9 took over from the CX-90. Mazda also added the CX-50 to its lineup, but surprisingly, the CX-5 hasn't disappeared yet.   It must be said that the CX-5 is by far the brand's most popular model and has an excellent reputation. Therefore, Mazda ...
Although it may not be a luxury and prestige car, the Mazda 3 possesses all the qualities required to belong to that category. Its overall average is higher than that of its rivals in almost all versions. It also exudes great elegance and finesse commonly found in major brands. Not to mention its driving experience, which is significantly more dynamic than that of other mainstream cars, even without considering the sport versions. The Mazda 3 is one ...
Even after the recent arrival of a multitude of new models in its lineup, it seems that Mazda still has a few surprises for us. Several vehicles from the brand will receive a special Suna edition for the 2024 year/model.   In Japanese, the name \"Suna\" simply means \"sand,\" and that\'s what explains the chosen color to accompany this new special edition that will be offered for the Mazda 3 Sport, MX-30, CX-30, and CX-5. Elements that are ...
Mazda has made significant changes to its lineup in recent years, leading to the arrival of a wave of new models such as the CX-30, CX-50, and CX-90. The original plan was to gradually replace the previous models, as was the case with the CX-3 and CX-9. However, the CX-5 still remains part of the manufacturer\'s range, and it is so popular that the Japanese automaker has decided to expand its production with a new generation.   Until recently, ...
Mazda is renowned for the character and sporty driving experience found in almost all of its vehicles. Does this explain the fact that there are no proper sports cars in the range of the Japanese manufacturer? Certainly, there\'s the MX-5 and its hardtop variant, the MX-5 RF, but Mazda hasn\'t introduced any other performance cars since the legendary RX-8, which ceased production in 2012.   However, it\'s not for lack of ideas or opportunities, ...
Mazda is one of the largest and oldest Japanese automotive manufacturers still active today. The brand has always done things its own way rather than following trends and doing what others do. That is something I greatly appreciate about the manufacturer.   Numerous models have made history for the manufacturer due to their unique style or unusual features. Others have simply earned a strong reputation among car enthusiasts. However, before ...
The Japanese automaker has just unveiled the Mazda 3 2024. The only downside is that this is the version intended for its local market, namely Japan. Fortunately, Mazda is not the type to make radical changes to its models between the different markets in which they are present. Thus, everything suggests that the Mazda 3 2024 intended for the Canadian market will be very similar to its Japanese cousin, apart from its right-hand drive, of course.   The ...
  It may not be called the Miata anymore, but the MX-5 remains one of the best sports cars in the world. I thought speed and power were everything a performance vehicle needed to be desirable. Only God knows how wrong I was, and I realized it the first day I drove an MX-5.    Since then, I have driven all four Japanese compact sports car generations, and I loved each one in its way. Nevertheless, all Miata/MX-5 generations have some ...
Let’s talk about the 2023 Mazda 3 today, one of the very few cars I still find relevant today. You probably noticed most new vehicles are SUVs, and cars are getting less popular every year. Well, I think there is another way to see the situation. You see, SUVs are more profitable to car manufacturers than cars. However, some manufacturers like Mazda decided to still put effort into making cars good, and the 2023 Mazda3 is the perfect example.    The ...
Mazda\'s latest and most incredible creation is now available on the market. Of course, we are talking about the 2024 CX-90, Mazda\'s all-new flagship model. The best part about it is that it\'s not even so expensive, which is precisely what we will discuss in the following paragraphs.    The 2024 Mazda CX-90 starts at $45,900, which is the cost of the average new car in 2023. Mazda did its homework because it makes the CX-90 more affordable ...
As I mentioned so many times, Mazda likes doing things his way. When everybody invests in turbocompressors, hybrid technologies, and fuel cell powertrains, the Japanese manufacturer updates the 100-year-old concept, such as aerodynamics and fuel management. It turned out well for Mazda since its vehicles are more fun to drive and as fuel efficient as most competitors.     Mazda just unveiled the brand-new CX-90, which comes with it ...
  Mazda just launched the MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV, which features a brand-new powertrain with a range of 680 km thanks to an all-new range extender. Plus, the Japanese SUV can still do 85 km on a single charge in EV mode.    I’ll be honest with you. I was disappointed when Mazda unveiled its first electric SUV back in 2020. The MX-30 is an excellent concept with two doors and two half-door concepts. The Japanese SUV is good-looking, ...
  Even though it hasn’t been fully unveiled yet, we know a little more about the 2024 Mazda CX-90. The newest Japanese SUV should be revealed later this month. The CX-90 will be Mazda’s new flagship model, although it’s unclear whether it will replace the CX-9 or evolve alongside it. I think this will depend on a lot of how sales are going for the CX-9 in the next couple of months.    The least I can say is I am ...
A patent showing Mazda is working on a brand-new electric vehicle leaked on the web last week. The patent shows a compact car. Some bloggers\' suggestions may be an electric version of the future generation Mazda 3. Whether this new platform could evolve alongside Mazda or completely replace it is unclear.    Mazda is a little behind the competition in the electrification segment, with only one full EV model and one PHEV model. The MX-30 ...
The Mazda CX-90 full reveal is set for January 2023. This is not even the good news here since the Japanese SUV is also coming to Canada to complete the brand lineup on its transition to the new generation. The CX-90 is a performance-oriented SUV and will be Mazda\'s first Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle available in Canada.    Mazda started to give us a sneak peek of its future SUV in the middle of November. We know it\'s going to be a three-row ...
  Mazda just revealed pricing and packaging for the 2023 MX-5. Although the Japanese compact sports car is mostly unchanged, there are some exciting additions to its lineup for 2023. However, 2023 MX-5 remains one of the most affordable convertibles on the market, and this is what matters the most, in my opinion.    The 2023 Mazda MX-5 gets a new elegant paint called Zircon Sand. Mazda has improved the Kinematic Posture Control ...
Why the Mazda 3 was such a big hit from the very beginning   You can have the best car in the world, but if you don’t have a story, a reputation, and a solid marketing plan behind it, chances are this new model will go into production and exit the market in only a couple of years. There is another ingredient that explains the success of a new vehicle, and it is audacity. This is precisely what the Mazda 3 brought to the table when it ...
  Mazda lineup has considerably evolved throughout the last few years, and one of the most significant new vehicles that came out of this is the CX-30. The sub-compact SUV was a huge success from the very beginning, and its popularity hasn\'t stopped growing since then. This is mainly due to the fact the Japanese manufacturer never contains improvement.    The Mazda CX-30 is an athletic and elegant subcompact SUV. It is full of high-tech ...
The Mazda MX-5, formerly known as the Miata, is one of the best compact sports cars you can get. There is a massive community around it, and each generation is unique on its own. I have driven every single one of them, and I will tell you, it would be challenging for me to choose one. Anyways, that’s not today’s subject. We want to know which version is better, the regular convertible MX-5 and its hard-top RF version.    For ...
Mazda is a well-known brand for several reasons. It brought the rotary engine to the automobile industry, and the Japanese manufacturer decided to focus on and refine simple concepts such as aerodynamics and how to recycle energy that would have been lost otherwise instead of developing gadgets to impress your neighbors.    If you are one of those who think Mazda missed the mark with the MX-30 as an electric car, it is because you don\'t ...
It is not often that a regular model feels like it should belong in a prestigious brand, but it is the case with the 2022 CX-9. The only problem is the Japanese manufacturer don’t have any luxury brands like Honda with Acura or Toyota with Lexus. So, the CX-9 is kind of stuck with Mazda, which is a good thing for the customer that is getting a lot more for their money this way.    The CX-9 has been out for quite some time now, but ...
Mazda has been playing its own game for the best part of the last decade just by the simple concept of improvement where others tried more to cover up mistakes. What I mean by that is Mazda almost perfected the automobile in its most basic form. The Japanese manufacturer invests a lot into research and development to get the best driving experience, the most efficient of any engine, and to simplify technology as much as possible for an overall experience ...
The Mazda MX-5, formerly known as the Miata, is one of the most recognizable sports cars in the world. It is fun to drive, practical, and pretty much bulletproof in terms of reliability.    The MX-5 was introduced on the market in 1989, and fast forward today, four generations later, the tiny Japanese sports car popularity has never stopped growing. Many attempted to reproduce the MX-5 formula, and those that succeeded never quite reached ...
The Mazda 3 has been one of the Japanese manufacturer’s best-selling vehicles for almost 20 years now. You would think that the compact car would have faded over time, and after 4 generations, but it is not the case at all. In fact, I believe that is the complete opposite. Some manufacturers give their cars minor updates every now and then, but Mazda just keeps improving the Mazda 3 and the Mazda 3 Sport every single year.    Pricing ...
It\'s not a coincidence if these three Japanese manufacturers are mentioned together in this title. Toyota and Subaru worked on many projects together, such as the GR86 and the BRZ, but their latest common project is the bZ4X and the Solterra, which are two electric vehicles interestingly. Mazda and Toyota also worked together on some projects, so it makes total sense that they go in the same direction. Unlike most manufacturers, Subaru, Mazda, and ...
