You can stay on top of the latest car news and updates to find out what new Mazda is right for you and your family. There’s a lot of information out there from a number of review sites and the manufacturer themselves. Below are some of the biggest news items related to the 2018 lineup of Mazda vehicles:
The Mazda CX3 is brand new to the Mazda family, introduced just in 2016, but it took sales by storm. This compact crossover was voted the best in its class by Car and Driver, and it quickly became one of Mazda’s best sellers. But that didn’t stop Mazda from trying their hand at improving an already-popular ride. The Mazda CX3 is getting an update to its chassis and suspension, including noise control in the cabin and better handling for a more comfortable ride. The original CX3 was definitely better suited for country roads than the track, but these updates are likely to change that.
The Mazda CX3 will now also come standard with safety features that distinguished other Mazda models. G-Vectoring Control and city brake support will be standard, putting it well ahead of the competition when it comes to safety. When it comes to comfort, you can also expect some new features that you’d probably expect to find in more expensive crossovers, like memory settings in the driver’s seat and heated steering.
This compact crossover is also going to see some changes that are very similar to the CX3’s update. There are also updates to the structure targeting vibration and harshness as well as creature comforts like heated steering. The are some changes to the engine options as well, with the addition of a diesel engine for fuel efficiency.
With more than 4 million sold to date, the Mazda 3 is the manufacturer’s best-ever selling model. Not only is it affordably priced, it also wins the favor of critics. It’s one of the most practical and pleasurable everyday commuting cars. As far as changes for 2018 go, the Touring trim has a more powerful engine as standard and all trims receive automated emergency braking. There are also some changes to the safety package, with the i-Activesense safety suite delivering lane-change warning, adaptive cruise control, and automated high beams.
It should be a quiet year for the Mazda 6 as a total overhaul is expected in the 2019 model, but that doesn’t mean the Mazda 6 isn’t one of the best-value family cars available.
