2016 Mazda Models Take Home Best-in-Class Awards

One look at the 2016 Mazda lineup, and odds are you can find a stylish car that’s perfect for you. The New England Motor Press Association certainly thought so, handing down two best-in-class awards to 2016 Mazda models. When all was said and done, the Mazda MX-5 Miata and Mazda CX-3 crossover drove home winners.

2016 Mazda Models - 2016 Mazda MX-5 MiataThe 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a roadster that just doesn’t quit. This hot ride took home the “Best Affordable Convertible” award in the Ragtop Awards category and was recognized as a lifetime achievement award. That only adds to the Miata’s already heavy awards shelf. Winner of the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, the Miata was a shoo-in for the New England Motor Press Association’s award.

2016 Mazda Models - 2016 Mazda CX-3The Mazda CX-3 crossover won the “Best-in-Class Sub-Compact SUV/Crossover” in the Winter Vehicles Award category. Citing its versatility on- and off-road, the CX-3 is perfect for New England drivers that was excellent efficiency and a value-oriented ride for driving in winter. In total, 2016 Mazda models have earned over 100 awards.

2017 Mazda CX-9 Production Starts in Japan

2016 Mazda CX-9 - 2017 Mazda CX-9 ProductionAt the 2015 L.A. Auto show we were introduced to the 2017 Mazda CX-9; a seven-seat crossover SUV that is set to go on sale this spring. The 2017 CX-9 went into production earlier this week in Japan and we couldn’t be more excited.

The Mazda CX-9 is a three-row vehicle that comfortably seats seven. The spacious interior will have brown Nappa leather seats and wood trim. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 will feature an all-new turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 250-horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The “Kodo-Soul of Motion” design philosophy from Mazda will also be evident on the 2017 Mazda CX-9. This design philosophy is featured on the new Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-5 and CX-3 models.

We have high hopes for the CX-9 and so does Mazda. Mazda expects about 80 percent of global sales of the CX-9 to come from the United States. Here at Steet Ponte Mazda, we are anxiously awaiting the spring and the arrival of the 2017 Mazda CX-9! Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 CX-9!

Tailgate this Football Season in a Mazda CX-3!

Football season is in full swing and part of the fun is tailgating before you go to the game! The 2016 Mazda CX-3 makes a great tailgating vehicle along with the CX-5 and CX-9! These crossovers and SUVs provide comfort and cargo space so you can pack all your tailgating necessities!

2016 Mazda CX-3 - Tailgate this Football SeasonThe 2016 Mazda CX-3 is the youngest of the three making its debut earlier this year. This crossover is up for your adventures, especially your tailgating ones! It has a spacious cargo area with 12.4 cubic feet of storage behind the second-row seats. We recommend this crossover for smaller groups since it has seating for up to 5.

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is perfect for families or groups of friends that are looking to take a little more to their tailgate event. It still has seating for up to 5 but has a larger cargo area. You can pack in a larger cooler with your favorite beverages and more room for snacks and food.

The 2015 Mazda CX-9 is the party vehicle. It has seating for up to 7 so you can travel with more friends or pack in more tailgating necessities! It gets great fuel economy as well since all of our favorite New York NFL teams are a drive away. Your passengers are sure to enjoy the ride with the comfort and spacious interior!

These are just a few reasons why we love the Mazda CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 for all of our tailgating needs! We’ve got them all in stock so come down and test drive one today!

Dynamic Mazda CX-3 Crossover Poised to Change the Market

2015 Mazda6 - Mazda CX-3 Coming Soon!Small crossovers are a popular vehicle and there are tons in production, but they all seem to be the same thing. The dynamic Mazda CX-3 crossover is different, and something we all needed to see.

There are so many bland crossovers, weird crossovers (looking at you, Nissan Juke), or ones that fail to be innovative (**cough cough** Jeep Renegade **cough**). But the Mazda CX-3 has a sleek design with a fresh profile. It truly stands apart from the rest.

The car was shown off at the LA Auto Show in Mazda’s trademark Soul Red color. It’s perfect for four passengers and has adequate cargo space.

The design really brings it to the next level, as well. Similar to a CX-5 or a Mazda6 in quality, however it has a simple design that really highlights its elegant design. This vehicle contains everything it needs to be just what we’re all looking for in a crossover.

Here at Steet Ponte Mazda, we know that our brand is a cut above the rest, and we look forward to helping you discover that, too.
