I wish FCA and Mazda would just hook up already.  To me, they are about the only obvious partners of the traditional OEM's (meaning not Chinese).  The overlap would mostly be with Fiat in the A and B segments but otherwise I think they compliment each other nicely.  The 3 and 6 are well regarded cars that would make a nice Dart and 200.  A and B segment cars could come off a common platform designed by Mazda but with Italian styling for the Fiat variants.  I don't even necessarily think it needs to be a merger.  It could be something more along the lines of the Renault/Nissan or Hyundai/Kia alliances.  It seems like too good of a fit so it will probably never happen.

C'mon Mazda, you can rally back! They're selling the best cars that nobody buys, I swear. The recent C&D comparo win will hopefully boost some sales for the Mazda6.

supposedly the CX-4 and new ('17s) mazda3 and 6 will debut in china later this month.

With the CX-9 not quite on the lots, this model would take a heavy hit.

 

The mazda 5 really needs to be updated or discontinued.

Is this pretty much the only MPV left, or does the ford connect/transit count?

 

i think the worst thing about owning a mazda is the dealer network is sparse.

I'd say that the Transit Connect is a competitor, though a superior one. I'm pretty sure the Mazda5 has already been discontinued, they're just selling what little they had left. It's a shame, as it was the only modern van that could be had with a manual transmission. Edited by Thed

I genuinely feel bad for Mazda because they really are the best car that nobody's buying. Heck, I would have been in a CX-5 if the ones that were in my price range weren't the first gen with only the 155hp engine. I won't put myself in a 155hp cuv..no way. 


Yeah, the 5 isn't on their website as of now.

      Mazda is continuing their upward push to make their vehicles more premium. Case in point is the updated 6 with the option of a turbo-four and improved interior. What could be next? It might be offering all-wheel drive.
      According to CarAdvice, Mazda North America Operations' president and CEO Masahiro Moro said there is growing demand to offer an AWD option for the 3 and 6. There is the precedent for this as Mazda offers AWD variants of both models in certain markets. But there is a catch.
      “I think we are not able to combine four-wheel drive and the 2.5-litre turbo. We have a layout issue with the sedans, that’s why a four-wheel drive isn’t deployed on the Mazda 3 and 6 so far,” said Moro.
      This also affects the naturally-aspirated 2.5L four-cylinder models. Only models equipped with the 2.2L turbodiesel can get the AWD option, which isn't sold in the U.S.
      “But there is a huge demand, at least what I know is that in the east coast of the USA, 80 or 90 per cent of premium sedans are sold with all-wheel drive.” Four-wheel drive becomes a premium queue for US consumers and obviously I have asked our R&D department to think about how we can accommodate four-wheel drive capability in the future,” Moro went on to say.
      This might mean the next-generation 3 and 6 could have the option of AWD.
