Live: The new Mazda CX-5 Brings the New Model

Live: The new Mazda CX-5 Brings the New ModelThe current model has only been on the market since 2012, but Mazda considers the time ripe for a whole new look. To my mind, I have seen more and more Mazda's CX-5 in the Dutch street scene. The model has thus evolved into a Mazda sales vendor, as one in four cars selling the brand is a CX-5.

Many brands might choose such a shot in the rose and, in particular, do not change too much. However, Asians usually want a somewhat shorter model cycle, and in the case of the CX-5, they certainly do not make any exception. In Geneva, the next generation is to shine in red. Is red the trend color of the stock market?
By the end of last year, this model was already in Lala country, so the specs already know. Mazda is one of the few brands that attaches to atmospheric engines. For the average consumer, maybe so helpful, because less expensive than all those little turbo cubes, Mazda's engines are not in practice. As an added benefit, you do not h…

Mazda 2GTM Line 2016 Review

Mazda 2GTM Line 2016 Review It was so far. Retrieving a new car is always exciting. At the same time, it feels a little weird to leave the old one behind. This is my third car in total, and my 2nd car is brand new. No problems with my previous car, the Renault Twingo from 2013, but so slowly, that APK date came closer and thus the chance that there would be several bigger expenses.

So for a little while, trace the car websites in search of a new one. These were the requirements that the (most important) things I had in the Twingo would have included here too; Preferably a 5-door (is still so easy); A somewhat larger car (this means a switch from A to B segment); And a car with which I can easily get on the highway and catch up on the N-roads. Also, I am not a fan of the new version of the Twingo. So it was looking for something different.

The choice has fallen on a Mazda 2 with the GT-M line action model. Here are almost all of the options I had in the Twingo (Cruise control, Airco, …

The Sales Fell, and Volkswagen Was The Largest. However, What Happened in 2016? In the Netherlands, 2016 was again a hectic year for car purchases. We have already shown our light on the brands and models that have been widely identified. However, there is much more interest to report about 2016. In addition to the fact that the number of (382,825 cars) is a historic level, the following issues occurred to us:

The Mitsubishi Outlander seems to have had its longest time now. Whether the Outlander PHEV was a good car or not, is not relevant. Sales fell sharply this year. By 2015, 9,460 Outlanders found a new owner, in 2016 there were 1,862. Of these, almost half (58%) were registered in December, most likely to fall into a favorable substitute category.We can also see Lancia's latest convulsions. There were only 110 sold in 2016. There are no reindeer Chryslers added. They are all Ypsilons.Despite the overall market downturn by 15%, Mazda managed to achieve a substantial 8% increase…

MAZDA 2 SKYACTIV-G 90 GT-M Review (2015)First Experience With Mazda 2 ( At 25 KM)
On Monday the 5th of October the license plates were delivered to the garage, and so I had to go for my Mazda2. This is my first car and drove this car with my parents (Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-5). My first impression is still very active like the first time I saw the new Mazda2 at the dealer. The level of execution corresponds approximately to the GT-M version, but the naming is completely different in Belgium. The full version is:

Mazda2 Play Edition + light pack + leather pack.

The first thing that struck me is the big mirrors! I am just that the cars of my parents, but my sister had a Peugeot 206SW and compared while the mirrors are huge. You must do your best not to see anything!

Finding the right driving position is a pleasure. The seat can be set up / down, front/rear and backrest. The steering wheel can also be set up / down and on / off. The steering wheel is big for this type of car (it is t…

Mazda SUVs are hot SUVs currently represent 40 percent of Mazda's sales total. There are now three: the CX3, CX5, and CX9. The latter is not sold in Europe. According to Martijn ten Brink, Vice President Sales and Customer Service at Mazda Motor Europe, it may be that this percentage will increase to 50 or even 60 percent in the future, partly due to this CX-5.

Everything else, but not again

The differences over the previous CX-5 generation are small, even though the car is almost entirely renewed. About 50 percent of his predecessor's platform was …


MAZDA CX-5 SKYACTIV-D 2.2 Test After four years of driving a Mazda 6 (2.0L automatic, hatchback), it was time for a new lease cake. Also, preferably one that was shorter than the '6' (4.75m) but still with enough indoor space and a large luggage compartment for luggage with two kids.

The other lessons of the previous 6 were: the five-stroke machine would like a sip (average after four years: 9.6l / 100km), and the lack of torque (no turbo) is not always as beautiful; You are missing the tension at mid-range and do not wait for feedback.

Candidates were full but fell 1 to 1: VW Passat Variant (too boring), VW CC (too much time and too cheap), Audi A4 Avant (very pricey with options and CVT automatic), Mercedes B Class (just what to Small), the Mercedes C-Class (again a little dated), the new 6 (too long; 4.85m) and of course the SUVs / Crossovers like the Kia Sportage and his brother the Hyundai i35 (the first one you see a Bit too often and both are not motor at the time, certa…

Review Mazda MX-5 RF: Own Wisdom

MAZDA MX-5 RF: OWN WISDOM Just leave Mazda in front of a car. Completely in style, the new Mazda MX-5 RF is not just a hardtop roadster, but a real fastback. That sounds good. It looks good. Moreover, it runs well. Just like the regular MX-5.

Just now every manufacturer returns from the cabriolet-with-steel folding roof, Mazda refines the concept and brings the MX -5 RF to the market. It is a sequel to the previous generation MX-5 Roadster Coupé. Moreover, where you could not distinguish the open hood from his soft top brother, the new Retractable Fastback never gets confused with its gentle companion.
