Mazda model guide

What Mazda models are there?

The smallest Mazda is the Mazda 2, which is the brand’s Ford Fiesta rival. Some buyers find it a little compact inside, but the material quality is good and high-spec cars come with features often reserved for more expensive cars, such as a heated steering wheel and a head-up display. It offers a peppy driving experience and good fuel economy, so is well worth considering.

You can also buy a Mazda 2 Hybrid, which doesn’t look like the standard Mazda 2 at all, and is actually a rebadged Toyota Yaris.

Arguably one of the most striking small family cars on the road, the Mazda 3 has plenty to like. It offers similar interior quality to a BMW 1 Series, with a screen that can be controlled via a useful dial. Like the 2, it’ll be fun on twisty roads but isn’t enormous inside compared to rivals. You can buy hatchback or saloon versions, but the hatch is much more common.

Up next is the Mazda 6, which looks as fresh as the day it launched. There’s plenty of room and plenty of equipment to enjoy, not to mention slick handling and a comfortable ride. You can choose from saloon or estate models – the latter bringing a bigger and more versatile boot – and both are now petrol-only. 

Rounding out Mazda’s car range is the iconic MX-5. It’s a small sports car that majors on driving fun and nimble responses. You won’t be considering it if you need to carry large items or more than one passenger but, if it suits your driving habits, few cars are more exciting at any price. There are standard fabric-roofed versions or RF versions with a removable metal roof.

 

Which Mazda models are SUVs?

After a high-riding crossover? Mazda sells plenty. The first we’ll mention is the CX-3, a small SUV that rivals the Nissan Juke. A used Mazda CX-3 is a good buy for its equipment levels and low running costs – just make sure you’re happy with the size. Boot space isn’t the biggest in this class, and Sport Nav cars with the upgraded Bose sound system offer less space than lower-spec CX-3s.

The CX-3 was essentially replaced by the CX-30, which brings improved practicality and the option of all-wheel drive. It also boasts an extremely good safety rating, and Mazda hasn’t neglected the driving experience either. CX-30s come with a 2.0-litre petrol engine that’s officially capable of more than 45mpg.

Then there’s the CX-5, a bigger SUV that you’d most likely cross-shop against something like a Toyota RAV4 or Ford Kuga. It’s much more spacious inside than Mazda’s smaller SUVs, yet retains most of Mazda’s keen driving characteristics and the brand’s generous equipment lists. The 2.0-litre petrol engine is smooth but not the last word in fuel economy or breathtaking performance.

Above that is the CX-60, an all-new model that launched with Mazda’s first plug-in hybrid powertrain. Not only is it capable of 39 miles of electric driving, it’s also the most powerful production car Mazda has ever sold in the UK. In addition, it offers the biggest boot space of any Mazda model.

FAQs

By most accounts, Mazda’s petrol engines are pretty much bulletproof. Its diesel engines need regular long journeys, otherwise the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) can get blocked up – but that’s a diesel problem rather than an issue specific to Mazda. Mazda owners are typically a happy bunch, although fuel economy and practicality could often be better.

Mazda’s electric car is called the MX-30, and is the only pure EV yet to come from the Japanese brand. You get the impression that Mazda would rather stick to petrol power, but that hasn’t stopped it creating one of the quirkiest EVs on the road. With rearwards-opening back doors and cork dashboard inserts, the MX-30 feels pleasantly unusual. Mazda deliberately kept the battery small to keep the weight and price down, but the result is a 124-mile range. That should be enough to only charge every few days for the average commuter, mind.

Mazda’s GT Sport trim level is its range-topping offering. Sometimes it might be referred to GT Sport Nav or GT Sport Tech. If you see this derivative, you know you’re going to get big wheels, sporty styling and a vast array of standard equipment. In some of the brand’s cars, the trim levels include SE-L, Sport and GT Sport.

Besides the trim levels just mentioned, Mazda has now introduced a Newground trim to the CX-5. You’ll spot it for its lime accents in the grille and air vents, and it sits between the SE-L and Sport grades.

Mazda Skyactiv is an umbrella term for the brand’s engines and gearboxes. Skyactiv-G is Mazda’s petrol engine range, while Skyactiv-X are supercharged versions with 186hp and a faster 0-62mph time. Meanwhile, Skyactiv-D is the brand’s long-serving 2.2-litre diesel engine with several power outputs. If you see an ‘e’ ahead of the Skyactiv name, it means it has hybrid tech to slightly reduce fuel consumption.

Most modern cars come with a start-stop system that cuts the engine when you come to a standstill – Mazda’s is called i-Stop. Fitted to the majority of petrol and diesel models from the last 10 years, it can be turned off by pressing a button on the dashboard.

This is another term for Mazda’s hybrid technology, used on the Mazda 2 to differentiate it from the Mazda 2 Hybrid. The latter has a different engine with a bigger battery, which enables lots of electric-only running on local journeys.

With carmakers rushing to fit ever-bigger touchscreens in car interiors, it might seem strange that Mazda’s screen doesn’t respond to touch inputs. Mazda believes that using a touchscreen requires you to take your eyes off the road for longer, so it fits its cars with a rotary dial controller on the centre console. Called the Multimedia Commander, it becomes intuitive soon after you start using it.

Like many carmakers, Mazda offers a smartphone app that links to your car. Once you’ve registered your car on the app, you can see service history and schedule maintenance, request roadside assistance, read your owner’s manual and find out about recalls. The system also allows you to see where your car’s parked, remotely lock your car and send sat nav destinations from your phone to the car’s sat nav. Electric and plug-in hybrid models offer additional features like pre-heating the cabin and schedule charging start times.

Yes, and your used Mazda can be financed on either Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP) terms.
