Mazda Models Available in Malaysia
Mazda 2 Hatchback
With Mazda 2, value for money seems to defy the order. The mild-hybrid, naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine is a testament to this abnormal norm. Unlike most of its rivals, you have the opportunity to choose from the two Skyactiv-G petrol engines- the powered 89bhp version and the 74bhp version.
The 15-inch wheels carrying the two versions – SE-L Nav and SEL –L are only good for city rides. Try bumpy and broken tarmac roads and jostled until the end. But on smooth roads, the ride is the smoothest- thanks to the firm suspension. For a hatchback of this size and weight, the vibration on the steering wheel and pedal is a common thing.
Slotting the gap between CX -3 and CX – 5 SUV is the Mazda CX-30. The 2.5 turbo engine equipped with i-Activ – the biggest in the Mazda SUV segment – complements well with the six-speed automatic transmission. Wearing the latest Kodo design, CX-30 reveals a sporty car with flowing body lines.
The so much to smile about 2.0-litre NA SkyActiv-G engine produces 253 PS at a maximum torque of 434 Nm. Major points ever remembered is the Bose 12-speaker audio, i-Activsense safety features and the cosy magnificent interior.
With more in common with the Isuzu D-Max, and as powerful as the Ford Ranger, Mazda BT-50 has the beauty of Isuzu and the strong performance of the Ford Ranger. For suit all terrains, BT-50 is equipped with a 3.2 five-cylinder turbo-diesel that powers out 190 PS/450 Nm and pull from the muddy roads, engaging its 4×4 drive will transmit power to all the wheels.
If you thought Isuzu’s Kondo style only suited D-Max, BT-50 looks much better than the competitors do. To enjoy the revving sound of this pick-up, select the six-speed conventional automatic new model Mazda.
Mazda 2 Sedan
Even though the pricing has caused a sour taste to buyers, the safety systems, accessories and driver-assist systems are worth it. Its four-cylinder G15 SkyActiv engine produces 82kW of power running at 6000rpm. And at its best moments, it will transmit 144Nm of torque at 4000rpm. Depending on your preferences, only two variants exist to choose from – the six-speed automatic and six-speed manual.
Mazda 2 Sedan (Mid) fuel consumption rating is 5.22L/ 100Km but on a normal drive, expect to consume on average7.4 litres per 100 kilometres.
Mazda 6 Grand Touring
Just before the outdated infotainment puts you off, the posh interior style if not the sporty exterior design, will leave you yearning for more fun-filled experience and thus fulfilling their mantra “Driving Matters”. The Mazda 6 Apple CarPlay, satellite radio and the Boss sound system if not well-balanced can burst your eardrums.
Under the bonnet is a 2.5 L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the capacity to produce 250 horsepower and transmit a torque of 310Nm.
- Mazda MX-5
So far, Mazda has moved over 1.1 million MX-5’s making it the best roadster seller of all time. If you opt for the updated Mazda MX-5 RF, better hold the steering wheel firmly as the 205 Nm torque at 4,000 rpm is above the normal rates. To firmly grab the roads, Mazda MX-5 driver assist and stability control systems features Blind Spot Info System, Electronic Stability Control system and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
The curvy and contoured front view- not so beautiful- is a complete opposite to the interiors. The glossy plastic edge trims not so much noticed as the fabric upholstery covers a greater part adds a fancy feeling from the interiors. Mazda CX-8 features some of the best technologies like Lane Keep Assist, Emergency Brake Assist and Dynamic Stability Control.
Its 6-speed automatic transmission system is propelled by a 2.5 L naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine.
