Mazda CX-30 vs Mazda 3 – Should you trade higher seating position for better handling?

As you know, the Mazda 3 comes in two body types, a sedan and a hatchback (which distributor Bermaz Auto prefers to call it a Liftback). Nameplates aside, the Mazda 3 family actually includes an SUV (or if you insist, crossover). The Mazda CX-30 is essentially a jacked up, shorter wheelbase version of the Mazda 3. Distance between the wheels is 70 mm shorter, with a 40 mm taller ground clearance. The shorter wheelbase also means that the CX-30 has less legroom in the rear than in the Mazda 3, it

Mazda 2这个车型或许已经有些过时了,但它依旧很受车迷们的青睐。不过,尽管如此,但市售了足足7年的Mazda 2,在2021年肯定需要更新换代了。 漂亮到难以置信(图为Mazda 3 Hatchback) 与我们之前报道的一样,Best Car Web的团队制作了一些下一代Mazda 2的外观假想图。从渲染的图片上看,Mazda 2可能会保留与惊艳的Mazda 3 Hatchback相同的“魂动”家族设计语汇。 连车尾看上去都像是迷你版的Mazda 3,这其实并不是一件坏事。确实,即将退市的Mazda 2也许是最好看的B级掀背车了,但这张假想图中的新一代Mazda 2也一样有着十分惊艳的造型。 不过,最重要的新闻,应该是关于Mazda 2的未来的。我们之前报道过,在欧洲市场上,下一代Mazda 2可能会基于TNGA-B Toyota Yaris(与东南亚地区的Yaris不同)开发。 但从Best Car Web提供的消息来看,下一代的Mazda 2将采用全新的平台设计,至少日版车型是这样的。 图为2020 Mazda 2改款车型 所以,欧洲市场得到的是贴牌的TNGA Yaris,而

Earlier this year, the 2020 Mazda 2 1.5 Hatchback facelift with Mazda 2 skyactiv arrived on our shores. Being a fully-imported model from Thailand, it's priced at a rather heady RM 103,670 (OTR with SST). That makes it the most expensive B-segment hatchback in Malaysia. There is only one spec available, both the hatchback and sedan have identical specifications and price. Sadly, airbag count remains at 2 despite the facelift. Price with SST discount is RM 100,870. Valid until 31st December 2020.

The new Hyundai Elantra offers an alternative option if you’re shopping for a C-segment saloon. Being a CBU import from Korea, it is a bit tougher for the Elantra to compete with the CKD Honda Civic. A CBU rival of the Hyundai Elantra would be the Japan-made Mazda 3 Sedan 1.5. The Hyundai Elantra is now open for booking, but prices are yet to be announced. We expect the price to be around the price of the Mazda 3 sedan 1.5, which is around RM 137,660. Picture is of Mazda 3 Sedan 2.0 High Plus On

The oddly named Mazda CX-30 slots between the B-segment CX-3 and the C-segment CX-5. Why is called the CX-30 instead of a more logical CX-4 then? That's because the CX-4 already exists as a totally unrelated China-only model (based on the previous generation CX-5). This 2020 Mazda CX-30 that you see here is Mazda's latest global product. It's a C-segment SUV, similar to the CX-5 but this one sits closer to the smaller Toyota C-HR than the larger CX-5. Just as its little brother the CX-3 is based

Is torsion beam suspension in the 2019 Mazda 3 a step backwards?

Sometimes it really feels like the more we learn, the less we know. In this case, it’s about the types of suspensions used in a car. At first, we learnt that torsion beam sits at the bottom of the suspension hierarchy. A means to save cost as well as maximizing interior space. In torsion beam setups, both sides of the axle are linked together and when one wheel goes through a bump for example, the other is affected, which disrupts the ride. Although there’s a certain degree of flexibility in the
