MX-5 to Monterey: a 3,000 Mile Journey
Aug 31, 2014 - 10:38 PM - by

by Mike Schlee
At AutoGuide we love road trips. Any chance there is to drive somewhere instead of walk/fly/boat, we take it.
I may be the guiltiest party here. Aside from my yearly adventures with the charity organization Rally North America, I’ll take any opportunity to get behind the wheel and drive.

So, when I got an invitation to attend the world debut of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 in Monterey, California, an evil plan started to form in my head. What if I drove the current generation MX-5 to Monterey to see the unveiling of the new 2016 model? Not only would this be a home coming of sorts for the car, but the weekend following the debut is an event called Miatas at Mazda Raceway, in which MX-5 owners from all over the world are coming for a three-day Miata love-in. Aside from activities on and off the track, there will be a world record attempt on Friday featuring roughly 1,600 Miatas in attendance.

3,000 Miles? No Problem!

I rang up Mazda immediately and laid out my scheme. I was hoping to borrow a 2014 MX-5 to drive out to Monterey. Oh, and did I mention I live on the east coast and the drive would be a 3,000 mile jaunt? For some manufacturers, the idea of driving a tiny roadster to Monterey may border on lunacy. Mazda, however, responded with a “**** Ya!” (Ok, I may have paraphrased that.)
I’ve already hit the road, leaving Toronto, Canada today on my way to Harrisburgh, PA to pick-up my co-driver for the adventure, Tony Intrieri, Operations Manager of Rally North America.

2015 Mazda2 Leaked
Jul 16, 2014 - 10:31 PM - by

The upcoming 2015 Mazda2 has made its way onto the internet before its official debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October.

Seen with Demio plates, which is the carís name in worldwide markets, the new Mazda2 managed to keep its styling close to the Hazumi concept which debuted last year in Geneva. The all-new nose brings the Mazda2 in line with the rest of the companyís lineup, finally adopting the brandís Kodo design language.

SEE ALSO: Mazda Hazumi Concept Info

Mazdaís full suite of SkyActiv technology is in use on the Mazda2, which means the car will be lighter than the previous generation. For power, the new car will use a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes around 100 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual should remain as the base option, though a CVT will now be available as the automatic transmission.
