A round up of the latest Mazda news and reviews.

New Kuro Edition range revealed

Mazda Canada has unveiled the all-new Kuro Edition range for the 2021 CX-5, CX-9, and Mazda6. The exclusive lineup includes a choice between the stunning Jet Black Mica or Polymetal Grey Metallic exteriors and boasts sleek Garnet Red leather seats, and a powerful Skyactiv-G 2.5 litre engine.

To celebrate the launch, Mazda Canada partnered up with three creatives and influencers from across the country – tattoo artist David Peyote, jewelry designer Ashley McFarlane and artist Maxwell N. Burnstein. Commenting on the new design McFarlane said: “The combination of the calm tranquillity of black and bold intensity of red is very visceral.”

Mazda fans raise funds for local charities

Eight Mazda clubs have partnered with Mazda Canada to raise a collective total of over $30,000 for their communities.

The Niagara Peninsula Miata club raised $2,000 from club funds and donations for local food banks, including the Salvation Army Hamilton food bank and Hamilton food share. The Trillium Miata club also raised $2,000 and some club members also took part in a food-drop off last spring, loading their MX-5 trunks with much needed supplies.

Former Trillium Miata club president Gary Svoboda said: “When lockdown began we came up with the idea of dropping off donations at the food bank as a way to get back into our cars and do something useful.”

Mazda wins big on The Car Guide’s Best Buy list

Mazda has scored across The Car Guide’s ‘Best Buy’ list for 2021, winning five out of 26 categories. The Quebec publication recommended the Mazda MX-5, CX-3 and Mazda3 in the Convertible, Urban Crossovers and Compact Cars categories, while the CX-5 and CX-30 also took first place in the Compact SUV and Subcompact SUV categories.

In order to determine the winner for each classification, every vehicle is rated on five different criteria including fuel economy, predicted reliability, safety, driving experience and overall appreciation.

More Mazda awards success

For the second year running, the Mazda3 has been named the 2021 Best Mid-Size Car at the Canadian Car of the Year awards. Winners are selected by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) and were announced during the Montreal International Auto Show’s “Auto Zone” broadcast on Quebec’s TVA network.

As a category winner, the Mazda3 is eligible to win the overall 2021 Canadian Car of the Year award, which will be presented in partnership with the Canadian International AutoShow at a later date.

Review: 2021 Mazda CX-5 100th Anniversary edition

“This is a true five-passenger vehicle, and I’d describe it like a hatchback on steroids. The front-end styling is absolutely Mazda, and to me, it’s stylishly different.”

Review: 2020 Mazda CX-30 GT

“What every modern Mazda seems to ace is its interior design. This is Japanese artwork at its finest, and I would buy a Mazda just for the cabin atmosphere alone.”

Mazda Canada partners with Driving Unlimited Academy

Mazda Canada has joined forces with Driving Unlimited Academy, providing the school with a fleet of Mazda3 Sport GT AWD models for their student training vehicles.

“It’s the perfect vehicle as it has all the latest active and passive safety features,” says the academy’s President and CEO Danny Kok. “It also has great ergonomics and sightlines that are beneficial to learner drivers, as well great styling.”

Driving Unlimited Academy operates throughout the Greater Vancouver Area, as well as servicing the City of Kelowna and West Kelowna.

The great escape

“Throughout our 600 km trip, we felt in safe hands with the Mazda CX-30’s superb suite of i-Activsense Advanced driver-assistance technologies always at work. But the most game-changing feature for me as a driver is Mazda Radar Cruise Control. The CX-30’s millimetre wave radar judges the relative speed of the car in front and automatically regulates its own. I found it particularly impressive when a car in front of me unexpectedly slowed down.”
