Dating back to the Cosmo Sport released in 1967, every sports car ever developed by Mazda has had the same fundamental mission to provide car lovers with a vehicle that’s fun-to-drive, exciting to look at and easy to own, said Tetsu Nakazawa, Mazda North American Operations RX-8 vehicle line manager. The 2009 RX-8 embodies that mission, conveying the unique and distinctive Mazda brand DNA to the fullest.

 

To enhance the highly successful RX-8, Mazda engineers focused on innovation in three key areas for the 2009 RX-8: styling, performance and packaging. The enhancements made to RX-8s exterior, interior, packaging and performance takes it to a whole new level of visual and driving excitement, remarked Nakazawa.

Updated Mazda5

Updated Mazda5 The Mazda 5 is now the company’s third best-selling vehicle in Europe, with 297,500 units produced worldwide up to the end of last November, of which 110,000 were sold in Europe up to the end of last year.

With the C-MAV (lower medium, multi-activity vehicle) segment set to continue to remain strong in Europe in the next few years, Mazda is confident that the more family-friendly qualities of the Mazda 5 facelift will endear it to consumers across Europe.

The exterior has a refreshed, dynamic design, including new front and rear bumpers, lights and front grille. There is a new Sports Appearance Package on option, apart from new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheel designs, and seven new colours.

A new centre monitor, incorporating clock, audio and AC information, is now larger and placed more forward for easier reading. The CD player now has MP3 compatibility, including an auxiliary jack for access to the car’s audio system.

There is optimised NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), with a new multi-resonator system, new Thinsulate insulating sheets added to the roof liner and increased wheel rim rigidity for a quieter cabin while driving.

Mazda Taiki Concept Mazda Plans New Rear Drive Sports Car from Motor Trend, January 2008

While the Buzz at Tokyo was all about the Nissan GT-R, Mazda is apparently working on a sports car of its own that may eventually generate as much heat as the GT-R. Word from the show floor is that the automaker will unveil a “true sports car” concept at the next Tokyo motor show in 2009, followed by the production version in 2011. That’s only an eye-blink in the auto industry.

Details are scarce, but it’s confirmed that the car will be rear drive and true to Mazda’s history of sports cars. Does that mean rotary? It’s tempting to make that connection, given the larger-capacity rotary engine Mazda displayed in its booth this year. It now has been more than 40 years since the first rotary engine appeared in 1967 in Mazda’s Cosmo Sport.

Imagaine a production Mazda sports car going on sale in 2011 as a 2012 model tie-in to the 45th anniversary of the rotary. Perhaps the return of the Cosmo from the company that popularized rotaries? It could happen.

Meanwhile, the RX-8 should soon get Mazda’s new 16x Wankel rotary, introduced under the hood of the Taiki Tokyo concept. The 16X Renesis rotary is 1600 cubic centimeters (800 cc times two rotors) with a new trochoid chamber shape for a much needed torque boost and better thermal efficiency. Engineers reduced the rotor housing width and housing thickness and increased the trochoid outline and generally maintained the compact, lightweight size of the current 1308cc 13B. The 16X also is the first rotary to use direct fuel injection, adapted from the hydrogen 13B.

Extensive cladding around the car’s nose suggests this RX-8’s entire front end will be re-designed, while the taillight clusters appear tweaked too. Mazda promises that the facelifted four-door 2+2 seater will, along with its revised styling, also enjoy improved handling and acceleration. Its interior will be updated too, though the 1.3-litre rotary engine is likely to continue unchanged.

New Mazda3

Mazda Ryuga

Mazda Ryuga Mazda’s concept unveiled at Detroit looked somewhat familiar to the Nagare concept recently unveiled at the Los Angeles show. That’s no mistake. The Ryuga, according to Mazda, is the next step in the evolution of the Nagare and, according to executive vice pesident Bob Graziano, shows “global design cues for the next generation of Mazda vehicles.”

Mazda Ryuga A Japanese term referring to flow, nagare is applied as a design philosophy that embodies motion in forms. For instance, the ripples on the side of the car are inspired by those made by a breeze over water, while the dramatic, streaky headlamps are styled from morning dew on bamboo leaves. “The flow expressions that Nagare and Ryuga embody will be seen both in the near term on other concept cars and in the long term on production models,” said general manager of design Laurens van den Acker.

In addition to exterior design and styling, interior efficiency is an important part of the design. Although the Ryuga is significantly smaller than the RX-8 sports car, and about a foot lower than a Mazda3, it can accommodate four adults. Entry and exit is easy through the gull-wing doors.

Power for the concept is provided by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder flex-fuel engine, capable of running on E85, gasoline, or a mix.

Mazda also displayed the new Tribute HEV on its stand. As its sibling, the Ford Escape Hybrid, the Tribute HEV delivers 155 hp altogether from the gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain and complies with strict SULEV-II emissions standards.

Mazda Tribute HEV

Mazda Tribute With the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid already rolling on to the Los Angeles auto show floor, you just knew Mazda’s Tribute hybrid wouldn’t be far behind.

In fact the 2008 Mazda Tribute HEV will be coming to the 2007 Detroit auto show in January. Mazda says the new gas-electric crossover will be its first vehicle “dedicated to clean air.” The concept will join the Ryuga gull-wing concept car on the show floor at Cobo.

The Japanese automaker, one-third owned by Ford, says the Tribute HEV will be one of the least-polluting vehicles on the road. Its four-cylinder gas engine and battery pack will combine to produce 155 horsepower while meeting PZEV and SULEV-II emissions standards, the strictest applied to any vehicle sold in the U.S.
