Mazda is one of the most innovative and biggest car makers in the world. It has been consistent and has never looked down. With so many cars produced along the way, it always has at least one best-selling car in its line-up. Here, we will take a look at some of the best Mazdas of all time.
Mazda Cosmo: This was the first Mazda car to have a rotary engine. Launched in 1964, its full production continued from 1967 to 1972. Since these cars were built by hands, they could make only one in a day, due to which they produced only 1,176 units of this model. It featured a 0810 two-rotor 982 cc engine, a Hitachi 4-barrel carburettor, and an ignition design with two spark plugs with dual distributors per chamber.
Mazda RX-7 FD: This was the 3rd generation RX-7 sports car that was most loved by all. Launched in 1992, it featured smooth body lines, elegant design, and a twin turbocharged 1.3-litre twin-rotor engine. It produced 252 hp, and could go from 0 to 100 km/h in just around 5 seconds, with speeding up to 260 km/h. The RX-7 is also a very common vehicle with millions built in various models, as such there are many Mazda workshop manuals available online for repairs and servicing.
Mazdaspeed 3: This is one of the best-selling cars in Mazda’s history. Introduced in 2007, it stayed in production until 2013. Also known as Mazda 3 MPS and Mazdaspeed Axela, it was a performance model that featured 263 hp 2.3-litre inline 4-cylinder engine driving front-wheels. Delivering excellent performance, it reached 0 to 100 km/h in around 6 seconds and could run at the speed of around 250 km/h.
Mazda MX-5 Miata NA: Launched in 1989, this car got inspiration from the post-war British sports cars. The body was small and light weight, and had some excellent handling features, like the 1.6-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine that produced 115 hp. Later, it was given a 1.8-litre engine that produced 129 hp. It also featured front and rear independent control arm suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, and stamped steel wheels.
