Mazda makes a range of family car that tend to slip under the radar with their quality and competence – from the volume family car range to the eye-catching Mazda CX-7 crossover SUV, aggressive Mazda RX8 coupe and quite brilliant Mazda MX-5 roadster.
Mazda is a Japanese car manufacturer that with a number of distinct models that benefit from its almost constant evolutions in design language. That’s most noticeable on its seven-seat Mazda5 MPV, which comes complete with wave-like lines along its flanks, making it stick out from the majority of MPVs on the market.
The Mazda2 supermini uses the same ‘wave’ styling, too, while the 3 hatchback looks dynamic and muscular, particularly in its hot hatch 3 MPS form which clears 62mph in 6.1 seconds – faster than notable hot-hatch competitors.
That’s about the only ‘aggressive’ model in Mazda’s line-up – with the exception of the rotary-engined RX-8 - and it generally focuses on fuel economy and reductions in CO2 emissions; unsurprising given the small car focus of its line-up.
That’s reflected in the majority of new Mazda reviews which point out its recent improvements in emissions and fuel economy courtesy of a new engine line-up and eco-signature called Skyactiv.
Rather than focus purely on engines and energy-saving technology, the manufacturer has also improved its chassis designs and build processes, dramatically reducing emissions and improving fuel economy in the process. It was first seen on the CX-7 crossover but has since been introduced to other smaller models.
