  • MAZDA CX-9 NAMED BEST LARGE UTILITY BY MOTORWEEK

    Mazda CX-9 was named “Best Large Utility” by MotorWeek, a stalwart in automotive television content, as a part of the 2017MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards.

    The editorial team at MotorWeek evaluated the vehicles during its annual Drivers’ Choice Awards from the “buyer’s point of view,” and the list of winners represent what the television program identifies as a practical guide for car shopping. After evaluating more than 150 vehicles every year, the winners are chosen based on what buyers value the most: driving performance, technology, practicality and dollar value.

    Mazda CX-9 checks all the boxes. It sets itself apart from most three-row SUVs with KODO—Soul of … more

  • A Look Back At Mazda's Cosmo Sport As The Rotary Engine Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

    This year, Mazda is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its legendary Cosmo Sport, the world’s first-ever rotary-powered production car. Fast forward five decades to the launch of the stunningly gorgeous RX Vision concept that grabbed world headlines at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. To commemorate 50 years of rotary achievement, the company is planning to reveal a close-to-production version of the RX Vision at this year’s Tokyo Show in November.

    We can expect to see an updated version of the RX Vision concept at this year's Tokyo Motor Show to celebrate the rotary's 50th anniversary. Photo courtesy Mazda.

    But to celebrate this milestone in my own way and delve into what makes the rotary so special for Mazda, I borrowed a … more

  • Galpin's chef: From 5-star fare to dealership kitchen

    Tags: Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Geovanni Euceda

    LOS ANGELES -- Geovanni Euceda would understand if you thought he was slightly out of his mind to give up his position as a chef at the swank Beverly Hills Hotel to run a restaurant inside a car dealership.

    "Oh yeah, I was told I was crazy," Euceda recalls. "They'd say: "You're in a five-star, five-diamond hotel in Beverly Hills. You deal with movie stars. You're going to a car dealership?'"

    Before making the move in 2002, Euceda had to ask himself the same soul-searching question. That was before he talked to Bert Boeckmann, the legendary owner of Galpin Motors in North Hills, Calif., which includes Galpin Ford, the nation's best-selling Ford dealer.

    "If you're in a hotel like that, it's owned by the Sultan of Brunei," Euceda said. " … more

  • Galpin Auto Sports & Henrik Fisker: Rocket

    “When Henrik Fisker showed me his ideas, I got chills – it’s literally the most beautiful Mustang I have ever seen,” says Beau Boeckmann. Both Henrik Fisker and Galpin have a long history with specialty coach-building cars, and draw their inspiration from pony cars of the 60s and 70s. Together the team created a sculpted, sleek design and loaded it with power and performance enhancements that rival supercars. The Rocket’s lines emanate from the front, through the long hood, over a set of sculptured flared fenders and converge on its integrated rear spoiler, belying the car’s extreme power and refined athleticism. The handmade carbon-fiber body—constructed by renowned concept car builder, … more

  • The 2016 Mazda CX-3 Is A Juke Alternative For The Freak-Averse

    Tags: CX-3

    Look, we really like the Nissan Juke. We love the way it drives and even the way it looks. We're weird that way. But Mazda may have just broken up our tawdry love affair with our favorite four-wheeled freak with the 2016 Mazda CX-3.

    We'll be the first to admit that mini-CUVs don't get our heartrate much above shoved-in-an-ice-locker-with-Rosie-O'Donnell. There are exceptions, including the new Jeep Renegade and the aforementioned Juke, but the CX-3 has the potential to deliver something rarely seen in the segment: proper fun.

    It's based on the underpinnings of the Mazda2, and looks like the current CX-5 left in the dryer for 20 minutes too long and then given a proper pressing with starch. That's not a bad thing. It's got the … more

  • 2014 Mazda3 review: Best tech compact is also the best-handling small car

    Tags: Mazda3

    Mazda’s 2014 Mazda3 scores on all four cylinders: great tech, excellent driving, a reasonable price, and efficiency. Mazda has extended big car features such as adaptive cruise control and a head-up display down to the compact car class. With SkyActiv engine technology, it’s improving fuel economy up to 41 mpg and cutting emissions, and breaking new ground with capacitor-based brake regeneration.

    No one forces all the Mazda tech on you. It’s there if you want it, for instance if you’re moving down from a bigger car and still want the driver assists, or if you’ve seen the lifesaving benefits of Smart City Brake Support (Mazda) or City Safety (Volvo). The combination of tech, performance and space … more

  • 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club PRHT review notes

    This car is a blast to drive, although a little more power wouldn't hurt.

    DIGITAL EDITOR ANDREW STOY: My dirty little secret?

    I like the Mazda MX-5 Miata better than the Porsche Boxster.

    No, it doesn't pivot in turns on a perfect axis like the Porsche. The cockpit of the MX-5 isn't as elegant as that of the Boxster, or a BMW Z4. And Mazda won't take your $400 and give you a key fob painted to match your car. But for the kind of driver--and consumer--I am, this 2013 Mazda MX-5 Club edition is a near-perfect fit.

    As much fun as 600 hp supercars are for the weekend, the reality for most of us is that we're unable to tap a fraction of the performance of even a V6 Honda Accord on a regular basis. Hence references you may have heard … more
