The Mazda 2 sedan was first unveiled at the 2007 Guangzhou Motor Show

The story of Mazda Motor Corporation is one outside of convention – keeping
its unique identity, and like the city of Hiroshima where it is based, one
of rebirth and positive human spirit.
To understand what makes Mazda tick, journalists from Malaysia, Indonesia
and Thailand were invited to attend a brand forum held at its headquarters
in Hiroshima recently.
Also journalists were given a preview of the facelifted version of the Mazda
2 hatchback and sedan.

Mazda 2

Launched in 2007, the third generation Mazda 2 has been sold in over 70
countries worldwide.

“To date, the Mazda 2 has garnered a total of 51 awards from around the
world, including the coveted World Car of the Year Title in 2008,” says
Ryoichi Kishimoto, programme manager of the Mazda 2.
The facelifted Mazda 2 hatchback and sedan will be assembled in the
AutoAlliance Co Ltd plant in Rayong, Thailand for the South East Asian
market.
The new Mazda 2 changes is mostly cosmetic, adopting the bolder, new
‘smiley’ family face which can be seen on the new Mazda 3 and facelifted
RX-8 and MX-5.

The sedan variant would only be made available to the South East Asian
market as the hatchback is already proving popular in existing markets such
as Japan and Europe.
“The new corporate face of Mazda cars are designed to be better in
pedestrian as well as occupant crash safety performance,” says Akira
Tamatani, chief designer of the Mazda 2.
“These recommendations were based on data from our crash test experts,” he
says.

There is no Euro NCAP rating for crash safety for the Mazda 2 as of yet.
“It took us 19 months to develop the sedan variant from the hatchback,” says
Kishimoto.
“We wanted the Mazda 2 to compete in the South East Asian region where it is
a sedan driven market.”
The two units unveiled were still pre-production models, with production of
both the facelift hatchback and sedan starting in Thailand in October.
Nakamine says that the plant in Thailand has a production capacity of
120,000 trucks and 100,000 cars annually.
Besides assembling Mazda pick-up trucks and the Mazda 2, the plant has also
been equipped to produce the Ford Fiesta.

“We plan to launch the sedan later this year,” says Shahidin Sahamid,
marketing manager of Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd, sole importer and distributor of
Mazda cars in Malaysia.
“However Mazda has expressed its desire for the sedan to be launched
alongside with the facelifted hatchback when it comes out early next year.
So tentatively we are looking at a first quarter of 2010 launch.”
According to Shahidin, the pricing and specifications for the Mazda 2 are
yet to be confirmed.
He hints that the Mazda 2 will be competitively priced for the B-segment,
with the hatchback commanding a slightly higher premium.

Mazda Cx-7 New Facelift

June 2, 2009

Mazda CX-7 is like no other SUV you’ve ever seen. Sleek, muscular curves meet dynamic handling and performance to give you a driving experience that’s totally unique. Drawing on Mazda’s sporting heritage – clearly seen in the styling similarities to
the road-burning Mazda RX-8 – Mazda CX-7 completely redefines the category, moving away from the traditional heavy, boxy SUV and into an exciting new area of striking style and breathtaking performance. Finally you can enjoy a driver’s SUV.

When materialising the product concept, we pursued a new meaning in “coolness”, a Mazda unique “coolness” currently not available, something no one has ever seen, the ultimate “cool” SUV. First, we picked out the “coolness” aspects that best meet the “Zoom-Zoom” SUV image. The feeling of speed, sturdiness and sleekness. With these words as a foundation in the first stages of development, we’ve penned our product concept as, “Metropolitan Hawk”. Perhaps you can imagine a metropolitan landscape of buildings where a hawk dives straight down to its target with its wings folded back. A hawk’s beak and talons, metropolitan and speedy, a cool image. Our product stays true to this image with an urban and sophisticated styling and exceptional dynamic
performance out winning all competitors.”Unrivaled Styling and Performance”.
Form meets function in a powerful, aggressive shape that shares the muscular curves of the high-performance Mazda RX-8. From the striking front fender, independent lower grille and sharply raked windscreen, through the sensuous curves of the body sides to the solid rear end,
Mazda CX-7 is a daring statement in sporty sophistication, a genuine metropolitan hawk. It represents a refined metropolitan sensibility, with the masculinity and sense of speed of a hawk reared amid the beauty of nature.
Enjoy a truly unique experience: the precise, nimble handling of a sports car along with all the tough reliability of a genuine SUV. At the heart of Mazda CX-7’s soul-stirring performance is the MZR 2.3 DISI (Direct Injection Spark Ignition) turbo engine, delivering an awesome 175kW of power at 5000rpm. Step on the accelerator and the turbocharger and DISI force fuel directly into each cylinder for a more potent air/fuel mixture while keeping the cylinder relatively cool. The result is greater low-end torque along with better fuel efficiency to give you the best of both worlds: a more exciting, responsive drive that consumes less petrol.

On the inside, Mazda CX-7 shows the same sophisticated style and sporting heritage. The driver’s seat is more race-driven than SUV style, designed to match Mazda CX-7’s sports performance. The meter cluster is inspired by the thoroughbred Mazda RX-8, with the meters’ zero markers in the six o’clock position a hallmark of a sports machine.
And Seated high in the multi-adjustable driver’s seat you have a commanding view of the road around you, contributing to a feeling of safety and security. And the centre panel puts all controls in a convenient, logical position for easy operation from the driver’s seat.
There’s a full complement of handy storage spaces and cupholders, and the multi-purpose floor console between the front seats is large enough to hold most notebook computers, as well as offering an upper level bin with more storage space. Handles just inside the tailgate lower either side of the 60:40 split-folding rear seat to provide a spacious, flat luggage area, while the cargo
floor panel is reversible with a hard plastic side for when you’re carrying rough loads.

The All New Mazda 2 (World Car Of The Year 2008)

June 1, 2009

With the new Mazda2, we targeted a new global B-car standard based on our understanding of customer needs. We envisaged a car with (1) a distinctive design that would appeal to people all over the world; (2) the superior driving performance that people expect of Mazda; and (3) the fuel economy that’s expected of a B-car. Our approach to realizing such a car was based on weight savings and downsizing. Notably, we set ourselves the difficult goal—which we achieved with “100kg less” as our motto—of making the new Mazda2 about 10% lighter than the previous one.
The new Mazda2 encapsulates everything we wanted to achieve. This exciting new model is certain to attract new Mazda fans and strengthen the Mazda brand presence around the world.mazda2-sports-2

Mazda’s unique five-point front grille, and tautly contoured tail give the impression that the Mazda3 is hugging the road like a well-toned athlete.
Of course, this passion for achieving functional beauty means the design cues all have practical purposes to maximize performance.
-The styling and positioning of the bold new front grille openings that flank it improve engine cooling and aerodynamic efficiency.
-The striking lines of bonnet, roof pillars and dimensional flair of the side panels likewise improve aerodynamic performance.
