http://www.caradvice.com.au/324106/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
The Mazda CX-3 has taken its time to join the small SUV class, but it
certainly makes up for lost time. CarAdvice was among the first media in
the world to drive the new CX-3 at the Anglesea proving ground in Victoria,
The engine line-up includes a 2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel, with front and all-wheel-drive
Up front the Mazda CX-3 shares its interior design with the new Mazda 2,
which is no bad thing as it looks funky and cool.
The Mazda CX-3 sits between Mazda 2 and Mazda 3, wearing a price tag of
$22-32,000 when it arrives in showrooms in the second quarter of 2015.
The Mazda Rotary Engine Part 1
Educational film by Toyo Kogyo about the Mazda Rotary Engine. Shows how the
Rotary engine works with comparisons to the Piston Engine. Also shows the
Mazda RX500 test vehicle on a banked circuit and the Mazda Cosmo Sport (or
110S). Originates from the late 60's.
20B rotary RX-7 Spirit R: The Ultimate Street Mazda
Built by Promaz Automotive, we think it's hard to go past Steve's wicked
Series 8 FD RX-7 if rotaries are your game. Limited to around 1500 unit's,
the Spirit R was the last of the RX-7's and featured a lot of upgraded
factory parts as well as a low 1100kg weight.
Now powered by a lethal Promaz triple rotor 20B extend port rotary engine,
power is aided by a Garrett GT42R turbo
and MicroTech fuel system and transmitted through an Albins 5-speed gearbox
and KAAZ rear end [ http://www.promaz.com.au ].
Mazda RX2 13B turbo runs 9s
This Mazda gets a little loose on the track on its way to running 9-second
passes at Calder Park.
