The Used Mazda MX-5 Brings Excellent Fuel Efficiency to BC, Canada

(Posted on Mar 25, 2021 at 04:00PM by Josh Lew)
used mazda mx-5 for sale in bc canadaThe Mazda MX-5 is a sports car that is best when cruising on the open road with its top retracted. However, this two-seater can be an effective vehicle for daily commutes, as well. Not only is it fun to drive, but it is also very efficient. 

The Mazda MX-5 convertible and hardtop models come with 2.0L I-4 engines. Since the curb weight of these cars is under 1,100 kg, the level of power is sufficient for providing exciting performance (without excessive gas use). 

Exactly how frugal is the Mazda MX-5? Used models average 7.0 L/100 km on the highway with a manual transmission. Automatic gear shifting can lower this figure down to 6.6, while city driving ups the gas use to 9.0 L/100 km. 

Even with this practicality, the fun is still present. Depending on the model year, the Mazda MX-5 will reach 100 km/h in six to 6.5 seconds. To check the availability near you, contact our BC, Canada dealership.

The Used Mazda MX-5 Brings Both Hard and Soft Top Options to BC, Canada

(Posted on Mar 5, 2021 at 02:00PM by Josh Lew)
used mazda mx-5 for sale in bc canadaThe Mazda MX-5 is an iconic two-seat roadster that manages to be both fun to drive and practical. With curved and embedded headlamps, a sweeping hood, and compact cabin, the exterior design is very recognisable. Most versions come with two roof options. Each offers a slightly different look and unique attributes. 

The Mazda MX-5 is available in both soft and hardtop versions. The classic cloth variety folds down manually. Because of its ease-of-use and familiar appearance, it is the choice for those who prefer open-air driving. 

The hardtop vehicle, which is known as the Mazda MX-5 RF, looks like a coupe. The rear windshield remains in place when the roof gets retracted, providing a slightly more-enclosed layout. 

Both tops perform well in four-season climates - aided by available features like automatic climate controls and heated seats.
