2016 Mazda CX-5 Sees More Standard Features

2015 was great for Mazda and the automaker is looking to keep that trend moving upward in the New Year! That’s why the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is getting a mid-model-year update shortly after its mid-cycle refresh for the 2016 model year. Dubbed “2016.5,” the model brings more standard equipment to the road.

All CX-5 crossover models are getting a backup camera free-of-charge provided they’re equipped with an automatic transmission. That means every model except the base Sport, with a standard six-speed manual, will come with the $400 backup camera without adding to the cost of the vehicle. Mazda know’s how to keep deals with the customer in mind.

The Rear View Camera package includes a seven-inch touchscreen audio system, which is a standard feature as well. Upper-level trims already have the backup camera as a standard feature, but Mazda isn’t forgetting them in all of this love!

The upper-level CX-5 trims will receive navigation as a standard feature. The Touring model now includes heated front seats as a standard feature. Previously, the upper-level models included at $1,625 Technology package. Now, with navigation as a standard feature, that price has dropped $400 to $1,275.

Make sure to stop on by if you have any question. Now let’s be honest, that’s a steal if you ask anyone here at Parks Mazda!

The 2016 CX-3 Design is Powerful and Efficient

2016 CX-3 design

Mazda is starting engine production at a new power-train plant in Thailand, which it has named the Mazda Power-train Manufacturing Company. This new production base for SKYACTIV engines was created in response to an Eco-Car program created by the Thai government, which rewards tax breaks to fuel-efficient vehicles, such as the CX-3.

Speaking of-the new 2016 CX-3 design comes with a powerful but efficient engine with the high-tech SKYACTIV system. This compact SUV is one of Mazda’s most powerful, according to Automotive World, giving drivers the perfect combination of performance and practicality.

“Mazda is committed to producing vehicles in this country at the same high-quality level as we do in Japan, and delivering to market products that offer Mazda’s unique driving pleasure, in a timely manner,” said Kiyotaka Shobuda. “In doing so, we will further contribute to the development of the Thai automotive industry and enhance the Mazda brand.”

The new manufacturing plant is designed to assist production of the new CX-3 model, starting at $19,960 MSRP in the US. It also comes with three trim selections, as well as off-road and i-ACTIVE all-wheel drive options.

Rumored: A Turbocharged Mazda Miata Added to Lineup

Hello, speed enthusiasts! Prepare to crick your necks doing a double take at the new MX-5 Mazda Miata and this statement from Mazda’s head of global public relations, Kudo Hidetoshi: “And yes, a turbocharged or MPS variant is one of the options we will definitely consider.” Zoom, zoom.

While the last few models have been lacking the speed boost many MX-5 fans know and love, this upcoming model may fix that. So far, rumor has it that the standard model will keep its 155 hp, 2L, Skyactiv engine. A turbocharged Mazda Miata, even the possibility, puts a new spin on driving fun. The Mazdaspeed version of the Miata was last seen in the early 2000s.

Will a Turbocharged Mazda Miata  be added to the lineup?The only issues arises in weight distribution. The Miata, known for being lightweight and affordable, would have to undergo major reengineering to add the boost and maintain a 50:50 weight distribution. Even so, it’s good to know that a Mazdaspeed is under consideration.

Here’s to crossing our fingers for an all-new, boosted, Mazdaspeed MX-5.
