2015 Mazda CX-3 Review
Small SUV’s are the hottest things on four wheels at the moment, and
while there are a number of exciting new models launching in 2015 – none
are more highly anticipated than the Mazda CX-3.
The CX-3 is the 5th model to feature Mazda’s Kodo design language. Mazda
say it is a way of expressing the car’s soul and dynamism through its
What results is an attractive and stylish little car, the blacked-out
arches and skirts and floating roof at the rear working particularly well
with the signature soul red paint.
That said, the CX-3 is a good looking car in all of its available 8
The CX-3 is a little bigger than a Mazda 2 – on which it is based - but
smaller than a 3 – and obviously smaller than a CX-5.
Putting that into real world context, the 264 litre boot fills up pretty
quickly with a small carry-on bag in there. You can adjust the height of
the parcel tray and fold the 60/40 seats for more room (1174) – but
day-to-day, you’ll need to travel light.
However the CX-3 is only 1.5m high, so if you need more room for your
weekend adventures, then loading up a roof-mounted bike carrier isn’t too
The back seats are pretty cozy. I’m 6’3” and it’s very tight back
here for both leg and head room. There’s no center arm rest either.
The CX-3 can be had in box 2WD and AWD, so space is reduced to handle the
extra drivetrain components below.
It’s easy to get in due to the taller stance and big doors.
Up front is much more comfortable for me, with driver’s side height
adjustment and a reach/rake adjustable steering wheel.
Vision is good, despite the narrow glass house at the back, and the top
spec Akari features a panoramic sunroof for even more light.
A common criticism with Mazda is the road noise. Using a basic app – we
can see noise is about xxx db. We ran the same test in a Golf which gave us
It is noticeable, particularly on coarse chip surfaces, but around town
it’s not too bad.
The safety pack is a $1030 option (blind spot, rear cross traffic, smart
braking) on all but the top-spec Akari
The touch screen MZD infotainment system is standard in all but the base
Neo grade car. It includes navigation, internet radio, and can read aloud
text messages and even your latest twitter updates.
There are 4-grades, 2-engines, 2-transmissions, 2-drive types and 8 colours
in the CX-3 range.
The base CX-3 Neo (petrol, manual, 2wd) can be had from just $19,990 plus
on roads. This climbs all the way to $37,690 for an AWD Akari diesel auto.
Mazda are aiming for 1000k sales a month – the lion’s share being the
It may eat into sales of Mazda’s 2, 3 and even CX-5 – but given the
CX-3’s style focused and enjoyable nature, it could very well make some
serious in-roads into the compact SUV category.

Montaje del Motor Renesis - Mazda RX-8 - NO REBUILD
Proceso de remontaje del motor Renesis de un Mazda RX-8. NO ES UN REBUILD
de Motor puesto que no se han cambiado ninguna junta de estanqueidad,
sellos de aceite o sellos de motor. Se ha limpiado todas las piezas y se
han reutilizado, con el propósito de practicar el montaje del motor y
almacenarlo de una manera mas compacta para en un futuro rehacerlo con
piezas destinadas a su uso en competición.
REPITO: NO REBUILD, el motor no funcionará puesto que no tiene juntas de
estanqueidad, es un video de propósito meramente instructivo.

Rotary 20B turbo RX7 - Dyno & track
Built as an all-round event's car, Charles' Mazda RX-7 has undergone
serious chassis and engine changes including a Promaz Automotive
bridge-port 20B rotary engine. Boost
comes from a Garrett turbocharger while
the engine runs on methanol fuel controlled by a MicroTech LT16 computer
and LTC dash logger. Backed by a Jerico 5-speed dogbox, the clutch was
suffering on the Dyno
as the Promaz team got the car ready for Performance Car Mania. [

Mazda RX-7 Spitting Huge Flames from Exhaust!
When I was driving back from an event, this turbocharged Mazda RX-7 FD3S passed me in a
tunnel. As you can see this tuned Mazda RX-7 FD3S was spitting some huge
flames from the Exhaust! Hate it or
love it, I really enjoyed it! :)

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 ].
