    While the International auto Show of Montreal, underlines its 75th edition, Mazda celebrates his 50 candles on the canadian market.

    And to emphasize it as it should be, the manufacturer of Hiroshima took care to put the package to his booth at the auto Show.

    To pay homage to its past, Mazda had the brilliant idea of integrating the three models that have marked its history. These contrasteront surely with the hundreds of new cars that we are used to see at the Palais des congrès!

    Mazda Cosmo 1967

    Even if the Cosmo has never been marketed in Canada, she has without a doubt contributed to spreading the brand Mazda to us.


    The first car with a rotary engine built by Mazda, the Cosmo proved to the world what the builder was able, thanks to a timeless design and performance is amazing. From the top of its 110-horsepower, the Cosmo could cross the quarter-mile at 16.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 185 km/h.

    Mazda Miata 1990

    In 1989, at the auto Show in Chicago, Mazda presented a model that would revolutionize its history. The Miata, strongly inspired by the roadsters, English 60’s, has managed to charm the motorists by its compact size, its fun to drive and its pretty hoe. Since then, Mazda has sold over a million copies!


    Today known as the MX-5, this little Mazda is in its fourth generation, and it continues to offer a driving pleasure that is hard to beat while maintaining a reasonable price.

    Mazda RX-7 1993

    If there’s a sports car that has marked the history of Mazda, it is the third generation of the RX-7, marketed between 1992 and 2002.


    With a rotary engine with dual pistons developing 255 horsepower, this car a two-seater could go from 0 to 100 km/h in less than five seconds. At the time, it was a real bomb!

    Special editions to celebrate it

    Mazda is also launching a limited-production models of special edition available with the Mazda3, the CX-3 and MX-5. These vehicles will be made from the models mid-range GS, and will be equipped with equipment especially selected.
