► 2011 Mazda MX-5 CC
The world's best-selling two-seat roadster, the iconic Mazda MX-5 Miata,
continues to set the bar even higher for the competition today, reaching a
new milestone of 900,000 units produced. Nearly 45 percent -- more than
388,000 units -- of those were sold in the United States since the car
launched in 1989.
The MX-5 made its global debut at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show and has since
received several facelifts, seen many limited and special edition versions,
been named "Car of the Year" multiple times around the world and topped
countless "Best Sports Car" lists. But its soul has always remained that of
a pure sports car, dynamically engineered and tuned to produce driver
happiness, whether on a short trip from point A to point B or on extensive
S-curve searches. The Zoom-Zoom driving experience evoked by the MX-5 is
not lost on consumers, and has always been within their reach with the
roadster's affordable pricing.
"As we head toward the next production milestone of one million units,
Mazda is committed to further evolving the MX-5," said Seita Kanai, Mazda
Motor Corporation (MC) executive officer, research and development. "We
will refine its fun-to-drive character as well as further enhance its
environmental and safety capabilities. In the years ahead, we will continue
to cherish the MX-5 alongside its loyal fan base as the symbol of the Mazda
The first-generation MX-5 Miata (1990-1997 model years) was equipped with a
1.6-liter, inline four- cylinder engine that produced 116 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of
torque. A removable hardtop was optional and initial color choices were
red, white and blue. The starting price was $14,000, and early production
of the affordable, grin-inducing roadster could not meet the enthusiastic
demand of consumers. A redesigned second-generation model was unveiled at
the Tokyo Motor Show in 1997 (model years 1999- 2005 -- there was no 1998
model-year car) and the third generation model was introduced at the Geneva
International Motor Show in 2005 (model years 2006-present).
Currently equipped with an MZR-series 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder
engine, today's MX-5 produces 167 horsepower (158 for
automatic transmission) and delivers 140 lb-ft of torque. The soft-topped
Sport model starts at $23,110 with top-level, Power Retractable Hard Top
Grand Touring models starting at $28,550.
"Since Mazda launched the original MX-5, it has undergone two complete
product redesigns and a series of upgrades," said Nobuhiro Yamamoto, MC
program manager, MX-5. "Its enduring success is due to the strong support
it enjoys from fans around the world, and I will strive to keep the MX-5's
spirit alive while evolving it into a car that will be loved by even more
The 500,000th MX-5 Miata was produced in 1999 and sold in the United
States. In 2000, Guinness World Records recognized the MX-5 as the world's
top-selling sports car, a distinction that has been further solidified with
every 100,000 additional units built in 2002, 2005 and 2007. The 900,000th
unit is a soft- top, six-speed manual-equipped Copper Red MX-5, and
destined for Germany.
Mazda North American Operations is headquartered in Irvine, Calif. and

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test
It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything.
However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they
fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac
since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004
by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The
original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR
was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the
Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea,
but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't
interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS.
Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to
fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can
Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped
for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out.
I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant
more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from
"cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and
softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I
find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps
while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance.
The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your
eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is
the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50
from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS'
rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from
hidden Exhaust tops to light piped
tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but
the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is
an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect
panel gaps and seams.
Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse
sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or
Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in
the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a
competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed
the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury
shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine
every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not
offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops
that characterize 528i city driving.
While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models
lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic
found in most of the competition.
The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS
accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a
4/10ths faster than an E350, a
half-second faster than the 528i,
a full second faster than a GS350,
and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the
engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but
plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs
lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable
Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If
you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs
and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.
