The more i hear about Skyactive the more i am impressed.

That its actually a decent car too can only help, and in the UK where we are ever more CO2 obsessed its bound to be a huge seller for them.

I look forward to what Mazda do next, they are on a roll now.

The figures are very impressive and will certainly give the equivalent BMW a run for it's money.

More impressive though is the fact the CX-5 is more spacious than the outgoing CX-7. Clever design and though has obviously gone in to the interior as well as the drive train.



It's all about the twisties........

Not a bad looking car, some great design touches and Mazda seem to be going from strength to strength.

I will look forward to seing this car in the showrooms and on the road.
