Suspension of Belief: How Mazda Made the CX-5 More Comfortable Without Sacrificing Outstanding Handling
When the engineers started working on the 2017 Mazda CX-5, they had some specific goals in mind, namely ride quality and refinement to match, providing a truly premium experience at a very attainable price point.
All three of the crossover SUVs that Mazda sells in the U.S.—the CX-3, CX-5 and three-row CX-9—won their respective categories.
Mazda6 is a spirited car that begs to be driven, rewarding its driver and passengers alike with both exhilaration and comfort. And yet, it sacrifices nothing a family may need.
Wards rigorously evaluates every automotive brand sold in the U.S. Its independence and integrity have made it a respected arbiter of quality, and achieving a “10 Best UX” award is a major recognition for the 2017 CX-5.
Small or large—or somewhere in between—all Mazdas tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety earn the organization’s highest safety scores.
It’s hard to sum up everything that makes the Mazda3 stand out from the competition, but there are a double-handful of good reasons why this car deserves serious consideration.
A crossover SUV must be steadfast, reliable and comfortable enough to drive to work or across the country, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. So, of course, Mazda’s engineers created the midsize CX-9 to be a master of all four seasons.
Mazda is proud to win its fair share of accolades because the people who know recognize the creativity, perseverance and effort that goes into making a truly excellent vehicle.
Mazda’s engineers aimed to deliver driving satisfaction to every driver, taking the Jinba Ittai—“horse and rider as one”—driving experience to the highest level possible.
Outside of the brand-new Soul Red Crystal paint color, the biggest to-do with the vehicle came from the announcement of the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine.
By constantly monitoring different factors around the vehicle, i-ACTIV AWD is able to predict upcoming conditions, allocating engine torque to the necessary wheel to maintain control, stability and forward momentum.
Mazda's Active Driving Display, which is an exclusive feature in the mainstream compact segment, helps keep the driver’s eyes on the road by presenting relevant information right in the driver's view – much like a fighter pilot.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently named the Mazda CX-3 a 2016 Top Safety Pick+, joining Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 with this distinguished distinction.
Mazda recently revealed the Retractable Fastback version of the award-winning MX-5 Miata, named the MX-5 RF. Here are 7 things you may not have known about Mazda’s latest sports car.
The MX-5 Miata is a symbol of Mazda’s car-making philosophy, “Jinba Ittai,” which means horse and rider as one and expresses the type of fun-to-drive roadster engineers have intended to build since day one of the vehicle’s inception.
With more than 4.5 million produced since its introduction as a 2004 model, Mazda3 is Mazda’s best-selling nameplate in the world and reached 1 million sales faster than any Mazda before or since.
SKYACTIV Technology couples increased fuel efficiency and engine output from meticulous design and advanced engineering. This innovative technology coupled with the monozukuri philosophy—a simple and minimalistic approach to production—continues to enhance the drivers' experience.
