All-New Mazda MX-5 To Debut At 2005 Geneva Motor Show

New Mazda MX-5

The secret is out: Mazda Motor Corporation will publicly reveal the much anticipated third generation Mazda MX-5 at the 75th annual Geneva International Motor Show.

The all-new Mazda MX-5 is just one of the exciting products Mazda has planned for Geneva with the company showcasing its successful line of new-generation Zoom-Zoom vehicles, including a significantly upgraded version of the highly successful Mazda6.

Upgraded and improved Mazda6 to share centre stage at Geneva Mazda6 was the company’s first, new-generation Zoom-Zoom product and was launched into global markets in the spring of 2002. Since then, it has won over 100 automotive awards and is a key component of Mazda’s recent global success.

“While we’re excited to finally get the cover off the new Mazda MX-5, I think the entire line of Mazda’s new-generation Zoom-Zoom products deserves to be centre stage,” said Stephen Odell, senior managing executive officer in charge of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service.

“It is particularly gratifying to showcase the upgraded Mazda6 in Europe, where it has been so successful. With the upgrade, we have improved the product in vital areas such as NVH, performance and overall visual appeal.”

In all, the range of modifications will make a great car even better. The exterior design has been upgraded to achieve an even stronger, more athletic road presence.

In addition, body rigidity has been improved for better handling and stability. The engines, including the diesel, have been modified and combined with new transmissions to deliver stronger, more environmentally friendly performance and interior quality has been upgraded with better sound insulation added for a quieter ride.

The specification has been improved to ensure the popular Mazda6 continues to be a success in the UK. Production of the upgraded and improved Mazda6 will begin in the summer of 2005.
