2018 Mazda Updates

The automotive market is always on the move. There is still a lot of 2017 to go, but 2018 is creeping up, and there are already some 2018 models available. Mazda has big plans for its 2018 model year. In fact, the 2018 Mazda updates include an all-new three-row crossover called the CX-8 along with updates for the CX-5 and CX-9.

The CX-8 is bound for the Japanese market and will be shorter and narrower than the large CX-9 model sold here in the United States. We Americans like things a bit bigger, which is why Mazda is just sending the CX-8 to Japan. As for the American 2018 CX-9, it should get a few exterior updates including new LED headlights.

One exciting change for the 2018 CX-5 is the addition of a diesel engine option. This engine promises to deliver a fun-to-drive, fuel-saving experience that experienced drivers should love. Additionally, it should have a sportier, more sculpted exterior design.

Here at Wantagh Mazda, we can’t wait to see what the 2018 Mazda model year will bring. We expect to see some of these models start rolling in as early as this fall. Which 2018 Mazda model are you most looking forward to?

This Is the Wantagh Mazda Handshake

Whenever you buy a car, you always shake hands to close the deal. But professional pitcher Luis Severino knows how to shake hands with style. He recently paid a visit to purchase a new Mazda and showed us how to really finish things off with a bang. We like to call this the Wantagh Mazda handshake.

Luis also shows off his pitching moves and tells us how much fun it is to buy a car from Wantagh Mazda.

In case you don’t know who Luis Severino is, he is currently an All-Star pitcher for our favorite New York baseball team. He hails from the Dominican Republic and played for the Dominican Summer League starting in 2011. He moved up to the Major Leagues here in New York in 2015 and started off his big-time career with a bang.

In his first game, he pitched five innings, allowing two hits, two runs, seven strikeouts, and no walks. He ended the 2015 season with 11 starts and 56 strikeouts—a great start to his professional career.
