2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo
The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo is the range-topping version of the CX-30 subcompact crossover that features a turbocharged version of the SkyActiv-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The most powerful engine available in the CX-30, the turbo-four joins the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter on the U.S. market and the 2.0-liter gas and 1.8-liter diesel engines on other parts of the world.

Is This Lifted, LS-Swapped Mazda MX-5 Miata Cool or a Travesty?
This Mazda MX-5 Miata isn’t just any Miata. Hillcimb racing fans amongst you may recognize this as one of Flying Miata’s most insane projects, a lifted NB Miata built for dirt racing that hides a 455 horsepower LS3 V-8. As you can see here, the car, nicknamed ’Zombie Elvis’, is alive and well and continues to bring many smiles per gallon.
Would the Mazda CX-30 Be More Desirable With a 250-Horsepower Turbo Engine Under the Hood?
If the latest report is to be believed, Mazda is cooking up a turbocharged version of the CX-30, which is expected to crank out 250 horsepower. The CX-30 is one of the most pleasing crossovers you can get as far as the driving experience is concerned, so the idea of extra grunt should, in theory, boost its desirability.
2020 Mazda MX-5 GT Sport Tech
Let’s be honest: the current-gen Mazda MX-5 ‘Miata’ is becoming pretty long in the tooth. The fourth-gen MX-5 (codenamed ND) was shown six years ago and entered the market in 2015. So it’s only natural that Mazda is doing its best to keep it fresh and appealing. This time, the Japanese carmaker focused on the U.K. market, with the so-called GT Sport Tech treatment. Here’s what it’s all about.
The Mazda 3 Turbo Will Be More Competitive Than We Thought
On July 6, Mazda Mexico released a video that claimed the Mazda 3 Turbo would have just 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. When you consider the fact that we were originally hoping to see it take on the VW Golf R and even the Honda Civic Type R, it was pretty disappointing. Well, Mazda has finally let a few beans overflow from its container of secrets, and the Mazda 3 Turbo is going to post a little more power than we previously thought. Is it good enough to make it competitive? Well, that depends on what you want to compete with.

Mazda 3 Turbo Power Figures Unveiled, And It’s Disappointing As Hell
At the end of June, we broke the news that a turbocharged Mazda 3 was in the works and, while we knew it would lead to a Mazdaspeed revival, we thought it would at least have some performance chops. Unfortunately, thanks to a video posted by Mazda Mexico, we know that isn’t the case at all, and the Mazda3 turbo will be little more than a range-topping hatch will a little bit of daily-driving power. Talk about dropping the ball, huh?
A Mazda 3 Turbo Is Coming, But It Probably Won’t Be As Good As It Could Be
Rumors of a performance-oriented Mazda 3 have finally been confirmed via a teaser released by the company. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot to tell at the moment, but you can hear some engine noise, and we’ve learned that it will debut on July 8. Will the Mazda 3 Turbo be a real hot hatch capable of taking on the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Hyundai Veloster, Toyota GR Corolla, and the Honda Civic Type R? And, will the Mazdaspeed name finally make a return? Let’s talk a little more about it.
This 4K Footage of an FD-Generation Mazda RX-7 Is a Must See
Built from 1978 to 2002 in three different generations, the RX-7 is arguably Mazda’s most iconic model. Launched at the same time as the other iconic Japanese sports car, the Toyota Supra, the RX-7 is responsible for making the rotary engine popular and stands as proof that the design can deliver performance and reliability.
The final generation debuted a twin-turbo mill that generated up to 276 horsepower despite displacing only 1.3 liters. Replaced by the not-so-successful RX-8 in 2002, the RX-7 remains a desirable classic. But while some opt to hunt down well-maintained originals, other enthusiasts purchase third-gen cars and fit them with bigger and more powerful engines. The outstanding model shot by Covert Media in 4K is one of them.
This Rendering of a Mazda MX-5 Wagon Looks Painfully Like the BMW Z3 M Coupe
When it comes to quirky BMWs, the Z3 M Coupe certainly takes the cake. That’s why this render of a Mazda Miata MX-5 in shooting brake-ish attire caught our eye instantly.
No, this is not the work of Mazda and in all fairness, we wouldn’t want it to be in the first place. Here’s why.
Mazda Reveals The Third-Gen BT-50 Pickup Truck With Major Changes Inside-Out
Mazda officially unveiled the third-gen of the BT-50 pickup truck. It comes with a whole lot of changes in and out. The truck follows a whole new design philosophy and feels new on the inside as well. It rides on a new platform and is powered by a whole new engine. The only thing that is carried over from the previous iteration is the name. Will this help Mazda boost sales?
This Review of a 1997 Mazda 626 Will Take You Back to Much Simpler Times With A Few Laughs Included
The Mazda Capella, or 626 as it became known outside of Japan, was a mainstay in Mazda’s lineup for some 30 years before being replaced by the Mazda6 in the early ’00s. Growing throughout the years to battle the likes of Honda’s Accord, the 626 dropped everything that made it unique and became bland, really bland as Mr. Regular explains in this video from Regular Car Reviews.
Doug DeMuro’s Review of the Mazda RX-8 Will Remind You Why It Wasn’t a Successful Car
Nobody ever complained about the looks of the Mazda RX-8. Instead, it is known to give owners quite a headache when it comes to running costs, particularly through gulping down a lot of fuel and oil. In this regard, what makes it special - the rotary engine - is also its Achilles’ heel.
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).
