Mazda will reveal in full the re-engineered and redesigned 2018 Mazda6 at the LA Auto Show on November 29.

Mazda’s flagship sedan model has been thoroughly updated according to the automaker, making this the third time since the model’s debut in 2012.

Key changes include the adoption of new technologies and the addition of a new option in the powertrain range, with the Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter petrol engine gaining a cylinder-deactivation system for better fuel efficiency.

Mazda has also added the turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T petrol unit that debuted in the CX-9. The performance figures of the new engine option, which makes up to 250hp and 310lb-ft of torque in the SUV model, are not yet announced but Mazda claims it offers “an effortless performance feel that is equal parts composure and excitement”.

A wider range of Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies will also be onboard, including a radar cruise control that can bring the car to a standing stop and take off again and the latest 360-degree view monitor.

Judging from the two teaser images, the 2018 Mazda6 appears to have gained a cleaner look on the outside with redesigned bumpers while the biggest changes are inside, where the new dashboard follows the successful design language of the company’s latest models.

Stay tuned for all the information on the new 2018 Mazda6 as we have them.

Toyota/Mazda Plant To Be In Alabama Or North Carolina 15

Three-and-a-half months after Toyota and Mazda announced a $1.6 billion joint car factory in the U.S., Bloomberg reports that the plant will be located in either Alabama or North Carolina.

Spokesmen at the two carmakers have refused to comment on the reports but Bloomberg says Alabama and North Carolina have beat out the likes of Tennessee, Texas, and South Carolina for the factory.

When the facility is completed and production commences in 2021, it will build 300,000 cars annually and create roughly 4,000 new jobs. Toyota has confirmed that it will build the Corolla at the facility while Mazda says it will build SUVs at the site. The Japanese firm has yet to specify which models these will be.

Speaking about the plant at an announcement in early August, Mazda president and chief executive Masamichi Kogai said the alliance could energize the industry.

“Nothing would please me more than if, through this alliance, we can help to energize the auto industry and create more car fans by bringing together two competitive spirits to spur each other on, leading to innovations and fostering talent and leaders.”

Honda Civic, Mazda 3, And Chevy Cruze Batten Down The Hatches 12

These days, the market is filled with all sorts of compact hatchbacks, including the (worldwide) popular Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus .

But what if you wanted to step out of their shadow and go for something different, yet still affordable? Well, then you will have to check out other brands, and in this case, they include Honda, Chevrolet, and Mazda.

The team from RoadShow pinned the new Civic against the Cruze and one of the oldest ones in the segment, the Mazda 3, only to come up with a rather surprising result.

Before giving their verdict, though, the reviewers covered each basic aspect of the three hatchbacks, including their exterior design, cabin space, infotainment, fuel economy and handling.

Arguably, the Mazda 3 came first in most aspects, while the Chevy Cruze was found to be a good, civilized, and quiet urban driver, though consumers won’t feel the need to drive it on a twisty road. The newest arrival of the three, which wears Honda’s logo, is surprisingly good too, but which one would you choose?

Driving The Honda NSX, Toyota Supra And Mazda RX-7 Back-To-Back 11

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, many of Japan’s leading automakers built world-beating sports cars that were exceptionally fast, bewilderingly agile and in many ways, ahead of their European and American rivals.

Of all the iconic Japanese sports cars of the time, the first-generation Honda NSX, FD Mazda RX-7 and A80 Toyota Supra are among the most beloved. One fortunate YouTuber had the chance to jump behind the wheel of all three.

Despite all coming from Japan at roughly the same time, the Supra, NSX and RX-7 are all quite different from each other. Whereas the Supra is a straight-line warrior, the RX-7 is a more nimble and agile sports car powered by a high-revving rotary engine. By comparison, the NSX is the most exotic of the three, the only one that’s naturally-aspirated and the only one with its engine mounted behind passenger compartment.

If money wasn’t an issue and you could only buy one of the three, which would you choose?
