Mazda: lineup in 2017
The Japanese company Mazda has been producing cars since the 1920s. During this long period, the automobile manufacturer has experienced both declines and ups with success in foreign markets. At the moment, the company's products are popular in the Russian market, as can be judged by the number of dealers and sales. Let's look at the Mazda model range, which is relevant at the time of 2017.
From the history
The first car under the brand "Mazda" left the assembly line in 1960. She was a cheap small car called R360. Until then, the company had been producing motorcycles and tricycles. Since 1967, the company has been actively promoting its sports models. Cult cars, such as the RX and MX series, were released in the late 80s.
At the time of 2007, the concern is engaged in the export of cars to more than 120 countries around the world. In 2019, it is planned to start production of electric cars. But today the model range is represented by several classic versions of cars without electric motors.
To show photos of the entire range of "Mazda" for all times, not enough for a few pages.But below you can see a few examples of Japanese cars, which will make it clear how much the design and the Japanese have changed about beautiful cars.
Small middle class
"Troika" - one of the most "tenacious" models of the company. The first generation of the car appeared in the 90s, and the current version already has little to do with its predecessor, both in terms of design and technical equipment. The Mazda model range opens the Mazda 3 sedan and Mazda 3 hatchback - two models that differ in cost and body.
Body sedan largely borrowed its design from the "older" sedan Mazda 6 of the previous generation. The classic version in red looks sporty and aggressive. Behind all the lines and contour can be traced the determination and firmness of the designer’s hand, since there is not a single controversial decision in appearance. The same applies to technical equipment.
Under the hood, you will find either a 1.6-liter engine for 104 horsepower, or a 1.5-liter engine for 120 horsepower. All versions are equipped with front-wheel transmission and automatic transmission. Gasoline consumption is equal to 6.3 liters per 100 km. Acceleration to a hundred is 11.8 seconds with a 1.5-liter engine and 13.5 seconds on a 1.6-liter engine.The car is sold in trim levels Active + and Exclusive. The first option will cost 1 million 350 thousand rubles from official dealers, and the second - 1 million 180 thousand rubles.
The second version of the model is a hatchback body. The car looks different from the sedan only the back of the body. Otherwise, both options are completely identical. The only thing in which the hatchback is inferior to the sedan is the variability of kits and engines. The car is sold only with a 1.5-liter engine for 120 horsepower, acceleration of 11.7 seconds, front-wheel drive and automatic transmission. Of the complete sets available only Active + for 1 million 300 thousand rubles.
The middle class of the Mazda model range, the photos of which are in the article, is represented by the Mazda 6 model. The car looks like a representative sedan, but at the same time costs much less than its competitors. Also, the car is distinguished by increased efficiency - the car consumes only 6.5 liters of fuel per 100 km. Of the complete sets available Drive, Active, Supreme, Supreme Plus. The engine range is represented by two engines: 2 liters and 150 horsepower, 2.5 liters and 192 horsepower. Both options are equipped with front-wheel drive and automatic transmission.
