Mazda/Alpha Romeo Roadster to Enter Production in 2015

Each will have its own style and power

If you're a fan of small two-seat roadster's along the lines of the Mazda Miata, Mazda and Fiat have confirmed that the Mazda constructed Alpha Romeo roadster will enter production in 2015. That's a few years from now, so roadster fans have some time to wait.

I will say that I don't care for the style of the concept version of this car at all and hopefully it's better looking by the time it actually hits dealer showrooms. The vehicle is said to be developed for the global market and based on the next-generation Mazda MX-5 or Miata as most of us know it.

The agreement between Mazda and Fiat calls for a pair of vehicles distinctly styled and brand specific with rear-wheel drive. The cars will also get brand specific proprietary engines. The Mazda version is expected to get a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a number of customization options.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy An NA Miata

Sep 16 2014 9:41pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Over the last half-decade or so, Mazda’s Miata has been enjoying something of a reboot of its reputation. Long derided as a car unfit for those packing chest hair, the new line is that it’s a hot, affordable little roadster that offers all of the joys of sports-car motoring without the headaches induced by owning something old and British or Italian. And when the cars were ...

The Solution Solution? Report Says Mazda to Use Exhaust Aftertreatment After All for Long-Delayed Diesel

Sep 16 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We’ve been eagerly anticipating—and reporting on—Mazda’s U.S.-bound 2.2-liter diesel for many moons. But the engine has been continually delayed, primarily so Mazda could get the drivability right while also avoiding the use of exhaust aftertreatment to meet emissions regulations for its Skyactiv-D mill. When The Truth About Cars reported that Mazda had thrown in the towel and decided to employ aftertreatment of an unspecified type, we reached out t ...
