Mazda may not officially be a luxury brand, but that doesn’t mean it can’t win luxury awards. In fact, EBONY Magazine gave a luxury award for the 2016 Mazda CX-9. The CX-9 earned the “Pretty Boy” award from among a new fleet of luxury-oriented vehicles arriving in the market.

With its all-new Signature trim level, the CX-9 moves upmarket and delivers Nappa leather seating with rosewood and real aluminum trim throughout the interior. On the outside, the CX-9 beautifully wears Mazda’s KODO-Soul of Motion design theme, which is enhanced by the new Machine Gray color, giving the crossover a liquid metal-like appearance.

“From its proud grille to its dual exhaust, and everything in between, we’ve designed a vehicle that paints the direction for where we want the Mazda brand to go, now and in the future,” said Julien Montousse, director of design, Mazda North American Operations, in a statement. “We’re honored to be recognized by EBONY, as we believe CX-9 is a bold crossover that makes a statement in its segment.”

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.

2016 Mazda CX-5

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.

Mazda Headquarters Welcomes Nobel Peace Prize Winner Lech Walesa

Mazda headquarters rests in Hiroshima, often called the city of peace. That’s certainly an intentional association on Mazda’s part, as the company also supports the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates and lobbies for world peace in its own efforts as well. Therefore, it was an exciting day on March 19 when Lech Walesa, 1983 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and current member of the summit, came to visit the Mazda headquarters.

Walesa expressed his personal and political happiness with Mazda during his visit. “In order to make things better in the world, leaders have never given up in the face of difficult challenges and conventional thinking,” he said. “Mazda shares this passion, and I am very happy to be working together with this company as partners.”

Of course, Mazda executives felt very honored by their prestigious visitor and his message of support and endorsement to the company. Back in America, here at Parks Mazda, we want to share the brand’s message of peace and excellence with you—so come see us today to experience the Mazda way!

Mazda Helps Tampa High-School Students R.A.C.E. to Success

2013 mazda miata

The Mazda Racing Accelerates Creative Education (R.A.C.E.) program is in the middle of its victory lap right now, after seeing great success at Tampa’s Middleton High School last week. Over 300 students participated in the R.A.C.E. program, which aims to inspire interest in the real-world fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), fields that have endless applications across the automotive industry. These students have the potential to become the next generation of automotive creative geniuses, and they will doubtless be in great demand: as automobiles become increasingly technologically advanced, demand for workers skilled in these areas also increases.

“The students were thrilled with the presentations and impressed by the number and diversity of STEM-related career opportunities in the field of motorsports,” said Kim Moore, the Assistant Principal of Magnet Curriculum at Middleton High School. “I’m confident that after seeing Mazda’s R.A.C.E. program, many students left with an even greater respect and enthusiasm for the STEM disciplines.” Moore’s own enthusiasm was certainly evident; she was decked ou in a full racing suit for the event.

At Parks Mazda, we mostly see the finished result of all this STEM research, design, and development in the form of the world-class vehicles prominently displayed in our showrooms and across our inventory. But we’re always mindful of the incredible detail, intricate hard work, and creative genius that goes into sculpting a machine as beautiful as the MX-5 Miata. So, if you’re in the next generation of STEM professionals, we welcome you and wish you the best of luck!
