Arduino dashboard integrated into a first-generation Mazda Miata

The first-generation Mazda Miata, or MX-5 as it's known in some countries, went into production in 1989. The little cars were a modern interpretation of an old-school British roadster, and the first generation cars are known by enthusiasts as the NA series. NA Miatas are still very popular today for their handling and are frequently used on racetracks and autocross courses worldwide.

2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Review – Upset Expectations

2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Review – Upset Expectations

"You can't always get what you want," the Rolling Stones taught me, but then they also said I can't get no satisfaction, and so perhaps only half of the wisdom of an aging rock band is fully applicable to the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo.

Mazda makes some gosh-darned good looking cars, if you'll excuse my language. The 2021 CX-9 presents a challenge, like all three-row SUVs: the most practical shape for maximizing cabin space would be a big box on wheels, but then you've made a minivan and people accuse you of being boring.
