We've got a CX-5, the original turbodiesel we bought second hand from a Mazda dealer. It gets about 12km/l and diesel is cheap in Japan, so it costs little to run for what is a big car and is 4wd. It does 0-100 in about 8 seconds, so plenty of zoom zoom, and it's nicely decked out with leather and JBL, almost like an Audi or a BMW which cost way more. It's actually faster than the 1.6 five speed MX-5 we had years ago. If you're getting one of them, get the six speed 1.8 or the MazdaSpeed. MX-5s corner like they are glued to the road. I've also driven a new Mazda 3 we got as a courtesy car. It was just the 1.5, but it still felt like a drivers' car. It'll be interesting to see what Mazda do with electrics.

The plural of Isuzu is Isuzu.

Have had Volvos, Alfa Romeos,BMWs, Porsches, Toyotas , Mitsubishis, isuzus and more and my Mazda CX had been my best car yet. Their styling is superb and the customer service is fantastic. Bought mine new 3 years ago ...waiting till they finally got on with an ev which is finally happening, it seems.

Ever late to the party, Mazda eschewed hybridisation for diesel. Better late than never, though, and access to the Toyota tech saves them a lot of the sort of pain Honda and others have experienced.

Given the gorgeous design edge the Hiroshima brand enjoys, I'd expect them to leverage their 人馬一体 know-how to offer quirky, sporty, and cool EVs rather than me-too boxes.
