Spoiler – These mean machines will leave you drooling

Mazda seems to be on a roll these days. After attending auto shows all across the globe, the Japanese automaker finally returns to its homeland with a variety of models that it plans to unveil at the Tokyo Auto Salon next month. Can it spin the same magic and continue the good form here?

The first hot model from the automaker is a Mazda 3 Custom Style which is based on the 2019 Mazda 3 that made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show last month.

The Mazda 3 Custom Style is equipped with a front splitter, extended side skirts, and a gloss black rear bumper.

The car rides on 18-inch BBS wheels. As for the interior, not much has changed other than the addition of new sports pedals and floor mats.

Mazda will also be showcasing the modified versions of the CX-5 and the CX-8. The CX-5 comes with additional plastic body cladding with aluminum inserts on the outside. Inside the cabin, it features aluminum pedals, illuminated door sills, and floor mats that have something known as ‘deodorizing function.’ Weird, but since they are concepts, we will take it. The CX-8 Custom Style features faux skid plates and 20-inch aluminum wheels. On the inside, the changes are the same as the CX-5.

This One Looks Exciting!

The potential show-stopper, however, is the Roadster Drop-Head Coupe Concept.

It is based on the MX-5 Miata and features a removable carbon fiber hard top that promises to increase rigidity.

Other than this lightweight roof, it comes with a front splitter, aerodynamic side skirts, and 16-inch RAYS wheels. The coupe concept also comes with modifications like a front tow hook, aluminum pedals, and Recaro sports seats. On the performance front, there’s a new flywheel, a high-performance air filter, and a limited slip differential.
