Exterior and Interior Styling
Right away, you’ll notice the similarities between the 2020 MX-5 Miata and the R360 Coupe. The new Miata has the same basic shape, with the same white finish and red top. The Miata has been stretched out slightly for a longer frame, and it has some smoothed out edges and sexy curves. Buyers can choose from the traditional soft top, or they can get an RF version (retractable fastback). The RF top comes in black.
The interior matches the red on the traditional soft top, and it includes leather upholstery and heated seats. Special edition badging is featured throughout the interior, as well as on the exterior, such as at the center of the wheels.
The special edition Mazda MX-5 Miata shares the powertrain with the 2020 MX-5 Grand Touring model. It has a 2.0-liter Skyaktiv-G four-cylinder engine that puts out 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Buyers have the choice of a Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual transmission or a Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic.
Models that are outfitted with the manual transmission will come with some other powertrain upgrades, including Bilstein dampers, a limited-slip differential, sport-tuned suspension, and a front shock tower brace. You’ll enjoy fast, spirted performance that will make driving a true pleasure.
Technology and Convenience Features
Befitting a special edition, the Mazda MX-5 Miata will come with a lot of great technology and convenience features. The premium entertainment system includes a Bose audio system that will come through speakers mounted on the headrests of the driver and passenger seats.

Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as more consumers are realizing the need for environmentally friendly automobiles and as electronic technology has advanced. You can drive longer on a single charge, and you can find charging ports in more places, making electric vehicles more desirable. Plus, you can earn tax credits for driving electric, and you’ll save a lot on gas.
Previously, Mazda enthusiasts weren’t able to take advantage of this technology, but all that is changing. Soon, Mazda fans will be able to buy the first Mazda electric vehicle, the MX-30 EV, a stylish and sophisticated SUV. Here’s what we know so far about this exciting new electric SUV:
Mazda’s new electric technology is being called the “e-Skyactiv” electric powertrain technology. The powertrain is a front-wheel drive system that puts out the equivalent of 143 horsepower (107kW). The battery is a 35.5kW lithium-ion battery, which means you’ll be able to easily charge it on a network of electric charging ports.
The battery is capable of AC charging at 6.6kW or of DC charging at up to 50kW with the CHAdeMO or CCS standard. The charging options ensure that you have greater flexibility to be able to charge the SUV whenever (and wherever) is needed. With DC charging, the battery can go from 0 to 80 percent in just 40 minutes.
One of the most important questions that buyers have when considering electric vehicles is how far it can travel on a single charge. After all, you don’t want to be constantly charging the vehicle, and you never want to get stuck in a place where you can’t easily charge it (such as when you’re on a road trip). The good news for Mazda buyers is that the new MX-30 EV has a range of 200 kilometers (or 124 miles). That’s plenty to handle your daily commute and then some, as well as longer, weekend trips.
Mazda said it is also working on a version of the MX-30 EV that will have a range extender. The model would pair a rotary engine with the electric motor to increase the driving range between charging.
The new MX-30 EV will have a bold yet streamlined style. Mazda says that “its uncompromisingly simple styling emphasizes the MX-30’s beauty.” There is an aerodynamic design and clean lines, creating a styling dynamic that is up-to-the-minute. There is no pillar between the doors, which open “barn door” style. The front door has to be opened in order to access the half, rear door.
Right now, it’s not clear when the MX-30 EV will be available in the United States. Mazda says the SUV will go on sale in Europe in the fall. Auto industry insiders speculate the SUV will go on sale in the U.S. later in the year or early in 2021. Automotive regulations seem to be determining the release date. When the MX-30EV does go on sale, you can expect to find it at Seacoast Mazda. We’ll be to help you learn all about this exciting new electric vehicle!
A lot of car maintenance articles focus on preparing your car for the winter months, when the freezing temperatures, ice, and snow wreak havoc on your car’s parts and systems. However, you also need to perform special maintenance to get your car ready for those sunny months when everything seems easy breezy – during the spring and summer.
Here are a few things you can do to get your Mazda ready for the summer months so that you get the best performance out of it:
Check the Tires
Chances are good that you’re going to want to take a trip or two during the summer. You might want to just head to the beach for the weekend, or you might want to take a longer summer road trip. Either way, you need good tires to ensure a safe ride.
Now is the time to check the health of your tires. Note the tread depth, and look for any signs of balding or other damage. Rotate the tires or have them changed as needed.
Replace the Wiper Blades
Rain is more common in the spring and summer. If your wiper blades aren’t working properly, you’ll end up with smears all over your window – which will be made worse when the sun shines on them and creates a glare.
Check your wiper blades now and replace them as necessary. That’s a quick fix that you can even do yourself.
Check the Fluids
Fluid levels can change with fluctuating temperatures. You don’t want to wait until you start your vehicle up or get stranded on the side of the road to find out that your car is low on certain fluids. Take this time to check things like the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and more to make sure they are the right levels. Or take your car to a mechanic to get the fluids checked and filled as necessary.
Wash the Outside and Inside
Over the winter, your car may have become caked in snow, road salt, and other debris that can degrade and dull your car’s exterior. You need to thoroughly wash the outside of your car to clean it of any remaining contaminants.
Make sure to clean the inside of your car also to get out any dirt or stains left behind by mud, melted snow, and more from the winter. You should air out the car and deodorize it, as well, so that you have a fresh ride all summer long.
You can do all this summer maintenance yourself, or you can bring your vehicle down to Seacoast Mazda for professional service. Our technicians will inspect your vehicle and make recommendations for repairs or maintenance to make sure your Mazda is road ready all summer long. Doing this maintenance will help you enjoy a summer of driving, as well as to extend the life of your Mazda. If you think your current Mazda has seen its last summer, we can also help you find a new one from among our affordable selection of new and used vehicles. Visit us today!
The Mazda CX-9 has always been a safe car. But improvements can always be made to be better. That’s exactly what Mazda did this past winter. It made modifications to the headlights on the CX-9 to improve the SUV’s overall safety rating. Now, it’s a Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
A Closer Look at the Safety Ratings
The IIHS previously rated the 2020 Mazda CX-9 was rated a Top Safety Pick, which is already very good. The SUV earned ratings of “Good” – the highest ranking possible – for all crash testing, including small overlap front for the driver and passenger side, moderate overlap front, and side. It also received Good rankings for roof strength, head restraints, and seats.
The one “negative” mark on the scorecard for the CX-9 was a “Marginal” rating for the headlights. Mazda upgraded the headlights, and now they are rated as “Good.”
Mazda updated the CX-9 to have curve-adaptive headlights. Previously, the headlights were static. The new headlights create improved visibility, which has earned the CX-9 the improved safety rating.
In addition to updating the headlights on the CX-9, Mazda has also updated the optional headlights on the 2020 Mazda3 sedan and hatchback. Both vehicles were already rated a Top Safety Pick Plus by the IIHS, which is the highest safety rating.
Dating for the Updates
Mazda updated the headlights on the CX-9 starting in December 2019. What that means is that there are 2020 Mazda CX-9 models for sale that have the older headlights, and there are some models for sale with the newer headlights.
You aren’t likely to notice the difference just by looking at the headlights. What you need to look for, instead, is the date of manufacture. You can find this by looking on the inside of the driver door. There should be a sticker there with information about the vehicle, including the date of manufacture. Look for vehicles that were produced in 2020 to be sure that you have the newer, safer headlights.
Other Safety Features
The 2020 Mazda CX-9 has numerous other safety features that make it a great choice. Daytime running lights are standard, as are blind-spot detection and front-crash detection systems for vehicles and pedestrians. Optional equipment includes lane departure warning and lane departure prevention.
If you are looking for a family vehicle, or you just prioritize safety when you are evaluating potential new vehicles, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 has much to offer. Not only is it one of the safest vehicles on the road, but it is also a gorgeous SUV that handles well and that offers plenty of comfort and convenience features to make driving fun.
