My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The CX range of cars posted significant gains and added a large proportion of the sales to the total number, Mazda currently has a great range of SUV's and cars, designed using the KODO design language, this gives the brand a range of models that, in essence, have the same styling, but each remain separate.
The new RF Mazda MX-5 Miata has just opened the order books and sales are expected to be high, with the retractable hard top, it gives the MX-5 a entire new outlook, so expect these cars to remain exclusive as well as holding their resales well.
