2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda MX-5 MiataLadies and gentlemen, meet the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The highly anticipated fourth-generation (ND) model made its official debut in Monterey, CA this evening, and while details are slim (as in, we have practically none), there’s one big thing to talk about: less weight.

Yes, Mazda has confirmed that the new Miata sheds some 220 pounds over the model it replaces, and is “the most compact of any generation MX-5 so far.” For those keeping track, that means the new MX-5 should weigh in somewhere around 2,200 pounds.

Mazda’s Kodo design language is obvious here, with a seriously wide and low demeanor, and a mix of flowing lines and sharp angles. We don’t have any powertrain details to report as of this writing, but Mazda says the full suite of Skyactiv technologies are onboard, and the motto in creating this car was “Innovate in order to preserve.”

2014 Mazda6 teased in high resolution

We’ve seen a quadruplet of teaser videos of the 2014 Mazda6, the most recent of which showed off the car’s (nearly complete) side profile. Now, thanks to the slippery fingers at Russian site AutoWP, this high-resolution image of the new midsize sedan has leaked onto the internet, clearly showing the sharp new front fascia.

If that new schnoz looks familiar, it’s because the new Mazda6 will use the same Kodo design language first seen on the Takeri concept car and later brought into the production world on the 2013 CX-5 crossover. We certainly like it more than the Sir Smiles-A-Lot Nagare styling that has graced the last generation of Mazda vehicles.

Under the hood, Mazda will likely employ its 2.0-liter Skyactiv inline four-cylinder engine mated to six-speed transmissions. The Japanese automaker will be employing its 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine in other markets, and while Mazda has confirmed that the oil-burning mill will make its way Stateside at some point, it’s still unknown if it will show up in the Mazda6 or another vehicle like the CX-5.

Look for the 2014 Mazda6 to officially bow at the Paris Motor Show this September.
