Mazda Reviews

New Cars
Good: Enjoyable and fun to drive, economical engine, sensibly priced, feels well built, ride harshness over bumps improved for 2011.
Bad: Interior plastics aren't soft to touch, side bump strips a dealer-fit option.
Good: Forthcoming Mazda2 gets new 1.5 Skyactiv D diesel engine and upgraded 1.3 and 1.5 petrol engines.
Bad: Not in UK until 2015.
Good: Good looking, well engineered, efficient engines, well-planned interior, excellent steering, ride and handling. Manual or automatic.
Bad: No DAB radio at launch.
Good: Family friendly seven seater. Sport has remote electric sliding side doors. Economical and light new 1.6 diesel. Compliant suspension astonishingly good on poor road surfaces.
Bad: Folding centre seat not as clever as Ford Grand C-MAX.
Good: Striking and beautiful new saloon and station wagon from late 2012 with Skyactiv technology. Low CO2 from 104g/km. Drives as well as it looks.
Bad: Mazda already at full production to satisfy huge demand for CX-5.
Good: Low emissions from 119g/km, comfortable ride, well equipped as standard, practical and spacious yet compact.
Bad: 2WD diesels on 225/65 R17 tyres don't handle as well as the petrol model, cabin is drab compared to the exterior
Good: A great sports car. Incredibly nimble. Responsive steering. Easy to live with day to day. Comparatively inexpensive to run. Roof is easy to fold down.
Bad: Limited cabin space. Requires special coolant. Roof not electric.
Good: Electrically folding hard top version of the MX-5, just as good to drive as the standard fabric roof model, top build quality.
Bad: Not much room in the cabin, limited boot space, starting to show its age.
