The first of Mazda’s new-generation vehicles to fully adopt breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and new ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme –
HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of the all-new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show (September 13 through 25, 2011). The CX-5 is the first of a new generation of Mazda products that will adopt the full range of Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and new design theme, ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’.
The Mazda CX-5 evolves Mazda’s hallmark fun-to-drive character and will be progressively introduced to global markets from early 2012. Developed around the full range of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY – including all-new Mazda gasoline and diesel engines, manual and automatic transmissions, body and chassis – the CX-5 delivers precise response and a high-quality ride matched with outstanding environmental and safety performance.
The engine lineup for the European specification CX-5 will include Mazda’s SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine available in Standard Power and High Power versions. Mazda focused on achieving exceptional environmental performance for a compact SUV and targeted CO2 emissions of less than 120g/km* for the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engine model.
The CX-5 is also the first production model to showcase Mazda’s new design theme, ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’, which was previewed with the Mazda SHINARI and Mazda MINAGI concept cars. Unique themes of KODO design include a prominent new front view with a bolder family face and dynamic styling that conveys a strong sense of vitality and agility.
Joining the CX-5 on Mazda’s stand at the Frankfurt show will be the facelifted Mazda3. It delivers lower CO2 emissions, more sporty and stable driving dynamics, updated interior and exterior design, and higher quality levels.
Officially titled the 64th Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA), the Frankfurt Motor Show will open to the press on September 13 and 14, and to the public from September 15 through 25, 2011. Mazda will hold a press conference on Tuesday, September 13 from 14:15 to 14:30 local time.
* Standard Power SKYACTIV-D 2.2 model with front-wheel-drive, SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission and i-stop
First Gen Miata Widebody Kit with Stock Bumpers – Gallery Below
This page shows our first gen Miata, 1990-97 Wide Body Kit. It consists of four flares that are designed to be bonded into the stock fenders and 4 flare extensions that bond to the original or aftermarket bumpers. This is the only way to install flares on the rear as the rear fenders cannot be removed. This also keeps the kit legal for use in SM2. Small extensions are included for the bumper at each corner. A bolt-on front fender set may be coming along later although it will still require bonding for the rear and the bumpers.
The bumper extensions are intended for use on stock bumpers, but aftermarket bumpers that are similar to the stock ones will also work. The extensions start from approximately halfway through the side marker lights.
The best part is that this kit is thick enough for daily use. Run big rubber or simply give your car the stance to back up an FM II or Ubercharger powerplant.
