Mazda MX-5

Two new models are in the spotlight at Mazda’s stand at the Los Angeles Auto Show as the carmaker unveiled the all-new Mazda CX-3, its first crossover SUV, and presented the MkIV Mazda MX-5. Mazda also revealed the 2015 Mazda CX-5 and 2015 Mazda6.

The Mazda CX-3 offers an eye-catching KODO – Soul of Motion design, packaging and equipment tailored to a young, modern clientele, and Mazda’s characteristic fun-to-drive responsiveness and handling. Like its new-generation siblings, the Mazda CX-3 features the full SKYACTIV technology line-up, including two SKYACTIV-G 2.0-litre petrol engines and the new SKYACTIV-D 1.5-litre clean diesel, coupled with six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive or SKYACTIV-MT gearboxes. The new model is offered with front- or all-wheel drive.

The all-new Mazda MX-5 will be available in Europe with specially tuned versions of the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-litre and SKYACTIV-G 1.5-litre petrol engines and SKYACTIV manual and automatic transmissions. It has shed more than 100kg relative to the outgoing model.

Mazda is also presenting its 2015 Mazda CX-5, an SUV, and the 2015 Mazda6 flagship model. Both award-winning models feature high-quality interior and exterior styling, and a wealth of state-of the-art technology. This includes MZD Connect, Mazda’s smartphone connectivity system, the Active Driving Display, a head-up display, and the latest i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technology, including Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH) – a Mazda first.

Another highlight of Mazda’s stand in L.A. is the racing version of the MX-5 for the Global MX-5 Cup announced at the recent SEMA exhibition in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles Auto Show opens to the public on 21 November and runs until 30 November.
