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.

Sep 2 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Etc., Videos, BMW We've seen all manner of marriage proposals over the years, but our favorites, of course, revolve around cars. One guy proposed to his girlfriend at a traffic stop, another during an autocross event, while yet another got dozens of Mazda MX-5 owners together to spell "Marry Me?" in Miatas. This latest proposal, however, put the M in Marriage as only a BMW enthusiast could. While visiting BMW Welt in Munich, B ...

Dear John: I’m looking for a ‘sporty’ compact crossover

Aug 27 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Industry experts think the compact crossover segment will replace the compact car class as the most popular with Canadian new car buyers sooner rather than later. Some obvious reasons are the extra interior room and readily available all-wheel-drive (AWD) that crossovers enjoy over their car counterparts. But you could also include the wide variety of models as a big factor, too. Which is why this month’s ...

Suzuki Kizashi recalled due to pesky spiders

Aug 27 2014 2:35pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Sedan, Recalls, Safety, Suzuki Spiders seem to love the fuel tanks of Japanese sedans. Mazda had to recall its Mazda6 twice for arachnid webs blocking their car's vent lines. Now, the Suzuki Kizashi is also being called in because spiders can block the car's evaporative canister vent hose, a condition which could cause excessive negative pressure in the tank, eventually leading to a crack and fuel leak. The campaign covers about 19 ...

Supersexy Alfa Romeo 6C to Share Platform with Supersexy Maserati Alfieri

Aug 26 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s been almost a year and a half since we dropped a huge stack of knowledge on the Alfa Romeo 6C coupe, and little has changed since then. Plans still call for it to be sexy as hell (the rendering above shows an early styling direction), share underpinnings with a Maserati, and arrive in roughly 2017. But there has been one major development. Thanks to a recent report from Auto Express, we know exactly with which Maser the 6C will be twinned: the stunning Alfieri, ...
