2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Test Drive Review

The Mazda Miata has been around for 27 years, and this car has remained relatively true to the original car with the greatest technological advancement being the introduction of a Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT) model in 2006. By the end of the production run of the third-generation “NC” Miata, almost 60 percent of the cars were PRHT models. Since the customer is always right, meet the beautiful 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF; if you’re wondering, RF stands for Retractable Fastback. Without adding too much complexity, weight or cost, the…

2017 Mazda CX-5 Test Drive Review

My recent seat time with the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2018 Chevrolet Equinox proves that the top dogs of the compact crossover segment are a force to be reckoned with, but the all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 shows that Mazda has no plans of backing down. When it was first introduced for the 2013 model year, the compact crossover segment was rather bland and the Mazda CX-5 brought some excitement to this market with great styling, advanced tech and a great price. The 2017 Mazda CX-5 does all of this even…

2017 Mazda CX-3 Test Drive Review

If you’ve always yearned for a Mazda Miata but you need more space than this two-passenger roadster offers, then check out the 2017 Mazda CX-3. This sporty and stylish CX-3 burst on the scene last year and quickly established itself as the most entertaining vehicle in a growing subcompact crossover segment. This market currently includes models like the Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade and Honda HR-V, but it is continuing to expand with the new 2018 Toyota C-HR going on sale this year and the 2018 Ford EcoSport hitting showrooms early…

2017 Mazda3 Test Drive Review

Since its introduction in 2014, the third-gen Mazda3 has already shown itself to be one of the most stylish and fun-to-drive compacts in the U.S., and yet, Mazda unveiled a refreshed 2017 Mazda3 that promises to be even better in both regards. Distancing itself even further from volume-driven compacts like the Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Cruze, the 2017 Mazda3 was given numerous updates across the board, and while each individual change is relatively subtle, the end result is a car that is vastly better. And that should frighten the competition….
