A drag race is always a fun thing to watch, but it’s much more unpredictable when it’s between modified cars. Stock versus stock is one thing, but seeing how two or more vehicles react to modifications and perform against one another is a whole different thing. This drag race, courtesy of YouTube channel Officially Gassed pits two very different machines against one another – a 540 horsepower Mazda RX-7 and a 580 horsepower Ferrari 458 Spider.

It’s official: Mazda Is Giving The Rotary Engine One Last Chance
Mazda has been hard at work on its next flagship sports car and the latest patents, filed in Europe, suggest that a rotary engine will be in the center of the car’s propulsion. The hypothetical sports car has been in development since, at least, 2015, when the Mazda RX-Vision was unveiled. We know the car is coming, but we don’t know when exactly. What we do know is that Mazda will finally give us a proper successor to the RX-7. Here’s what the latest patents suggest.
A BBR Supercharger Can Give Your NC Miata Up To 300 Horsepower
While Mazda is preparing to retire the MX-5 ND generation, the old NC is still enjoying a lot of success. Mazda MX-5 tuning specialist BBR knows what an important model the NC still is and it is offering two supercharger packages for the sports car.

Mazda Says That The MX-30’s Measly 100-Mile Range Makes It A Perfect Second Car
The MX-30 is Mazda’s first attempt at making a purely electric vehicle (EV). Unfortunately, in a world where most EVs have a decent range, the MX-30’s 100-mile range is abysmally low by any measure. As a result, the Japanese automaker’s marketing direction for the MX-30 is that it’s the perfect second car. That statement certainly holds true, if your idea of a second car means having the range of a golf cart.

Retro JDM Comparison: Toyota Supra Vs Nissan 300ZX Vs Mazda RX-7
Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are some of the most recognized ones amongst the car culture. As described by Jeremy Clarkson, in a movie about the Nissan Skyline GT-R, Japan took over the world…and then lost it. While the latter is a topic for another time, what is true for the Skyline also goes for these three – the Toyota Supra, Nissan 300Z, and Mazda RX-7. Our colleagues from “EverydayDriver” - Todd Deeken and Paul Schmucker - take us on a spirited drive with these three JDM legends to determine the pros and cons of each and why they are so desired.

With good styling, solid interiors, and fun driving dynamics, the brand from Hiroshima tries to give potential buyers plenty of reason to choose them.

2022 Mazda2 Hybrid Is The First Full Hybrid Self-Charging Mazda
The current Mazda2 is already on its eight year on the market, and ever since its launch it was only offered with a choice of 1.5-liter gasoline or 1.5-liter diesel engines. In 2020 a mild hybrid version was also added to the lineup.
And now it looks like the third-generation Mazda2 is continuing to live on for yet another year, but with some major improvements under the hood. As a first in Mazda’s lineup, the 2022 Mazda2 will be offered with a self-charging, full hybrid powertrain.
2022 Mazda3 Carbon Edition

The Future Of Mazda MX-5: What We Know So Far
The Mazda MX-5, also known as the Miata, is a car that doesn’t need much introduction. The Japanese take on the British, lightweight roadster, is in its fourth generation, with the current, ND generation being the most lightweight and quickest of all iterations. With that being said, rumors of the ND Miata being discontinued in 2022 have been circulating. However, those are false, since we will be getting another updated version of the current generation.
Mazda Looks To Strengthen Its SUV Lineup With The New CX-50
Mazda has introduced a new SUV to its lineup called the CX-50. Rumored to replace the CX-5 in the automaker’s lineup, the CX-50 will actually coexist with the former and try to bring in big numbers for Mazda together. The CX-50 is brought in to boost Mazda’s sales in the U.S. as the company aims to move 150,000 examples of it every year. Not a whole lot of details are revealed, but from what we know so far, it will be the jack of all trades.
AT 2,183 pounds, This Mazda MX-5 Miata is the Lightest One in nearly 30 years
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is hands down one of the best-handling sports cars out there and for good reason. It was originally created nearly thirty years ago in a bid to capture the essence of lightweight, British open-top roadsters from the 60s. It was always a car that offered agility and stellar performance in a compact and lightweight package, all at an affordable price.
The Mazda CX-5 Could Be Considered the Safest Small SUV On the Market
High-speed side crashes continue to cause fatalities, which is why the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is updating its testing methods in a bid to make cars safer. The results for the small SUV segment, however, are disappointing - unless you’re Mazda that is.

2022 Mazda CX-3 Super Edgy
Back in May 2021, Mazda announced that after the 2021 model year, the CX-3 and Mazda 6 will be discontinued. But, while the American market will only enjoy the CX-30 for now, in Japan the CX-3 is still big and is enjoying a lot of success. In fact, for the 2022 model year, the Japanese version of the CX-3 will see the addition of a new model to the lineup: the CX-3 Super Edgy.
Prices will range from ¥2,491,500 (about $21,800 at the current exchange rates) for the 15S Super Edgy version to ¥3,212,000 ($28,000) for the XD Super Edgy.
A Brave Statement: Mazda Will Destroy Its Luxury Competitors By 2023
A while back, we talked about how Mazda is in the process of reinventing itself. The Japanese carmaker shared, on its official newsroom that three new SUV models are coming out by 2023 and that the expansion of its lineup will be accompanied by upgraded dealer facilities. Mazda’s transition to a more upscale image has never been more apparent and we are going to see the first models with longitudinally-mounted inline-six engines debut as early as 2022.
2022 Mazda CX-5
Mazda North American has announced that the 2022 CX-5, it’s best-selling SUV – is finally getting some much-needed updates. The most important change is the addition of AWD as standard equipment across the lineup. However, it should also be noted that there are a few exterior design tweaks as well. But can it stand firm against the slightly lower-priced Volkswagen Tiguan and Hyundai Tucson?
What is the Cheapest Mazda?
The cheapest Mazda in Europe is the Mazda2. In Germany, the supermini starts at €13,390, but if we are to look at the US market, then the cheapest Mazda you can get is the Mazda CX-3. The crossover wears a starting sticker of $20,390.
What is the Sportiest Mazda?
The sportiest Mazda is undoubtedly the MX-5 Miata, a car that also happens to be the world’s most popular sports car. The MX-5 has made a name for itself thanks to its compact size and lightweight build. The MX-5 is cherished by car enthusiasts for its crisp handling and fun-to-drive factor that prove you don’t need a bucketload of horsepower to enjoy a good road. In the US, the Miata uses a 2-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine good for 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
What is the Most Popular Mazda?
The most popular Mazda - if we are to look at sales figures - is the CX-5. Mazda’s largest market is North America and this is where the CX-5 rules supreme. The CX-5 is by a landslide the best-selling Mazda in the US - in July 2019, the CX-5 pushed 13,391 units. To look at the bigger pictures, Mazda sold 87,778 CX-5 units in the first half of 2019. The CX-5 is followed by the Mazda 3, with 32,174 units sold in the first six months of 2019. However, you might argue that the most popular Mazda is the MX-5 Miata, because it’s the brand’s most thrill-inducing car, but sales figures don’t do much to support that.

What is the Fastest Mazda?
The fastest Mazda is, or better said, was, the RX-7 Spirit R. It could reach 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in just five seconds and had a (theoretical) top speed of 159 mph (255 km/h). Another candidate would have been the Furai concept, which could hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and continue to a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), but it caught fire and burned to a crips during a Top Gear test drive. From the current lineup, the fastest and quickest Mazda is the MX-5 Miata. The sports car can reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.7 seconds and attain a top speed of 135 mph (217 km/h).
Are Mazda Cars Reliable?
Yes, Mazda cars are reliable. In fact, in a dependability poll carried out by The Telegraph, Mazda came 11th with 111 problems per 100 vehicles.
