The bulk of the 2022 Mazda lineup has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s coveted TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a testament to the construction quality and safety technologies available in all Mazda models.

To qualify for the awards, they needed to earn the highest possible rating in each of the IIHS’s six crashworthiness evaluations as well as earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention — with both vehicles and pedestrians.

Additionally, all models to win the 2022 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ must earn a good or acceptable headlight rating for all standard and available headlights.

IIHS tested the 2022 Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, and Mazda CX-9. All passed the necessary criteria with flying colors. The IIHS also introduced a new, tougher side impact test that will be part of the criteria next year, but the Mazda CX-5 already aced the evaluation.

“Achieving the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award is a reflection of Mazda’s commitment to providing advanced safety technologies that our owners expect,” said Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jeff Guyton.

3 Vehicles Mazda Should Bring Back from the Dead

Mazdaspeed3 | Wantagh, NY

The future is looking exceptionally bright at Mazda. Recently, Mazda announced that it will add several new vehicles to the lineup in the years ahead, including the Mazda CX-50 being revealed in November. But with Halloween so close and conjuring up visions of creatures returning from the grave, it got us thinking: What if Mazda brought back some beloved classics.

Just in time for the spookiest month of the year, we present a short list of vehicles we think Mazda should bring back from the grave.

  • Mazdaspeed 3: We’re coming up on 10 years since the last time Mazda made a Mazdaspeed 3, and we think it’s high time that it dust off the cobwebs for a comeback. The Mazdaspeed 3 has quite the reputation for good reason — it was a powerful, fun-to-drive, and assertive hatchback with loads of personality.
  • Mazda RX-8: Mazda is finally bringing back the iconic rotary engine as a range extender for the upcoming Mazda MX-30 PHEV. The Wankel rotary was a staple of the Mazda lineup up through 2012 with the end of production on the Mazda RX-8. Mazda had to pull the plug on this beloved sports car due to emissions standards, so it would be quite fitting to bring it back as a sporty, powerful plug-in hybrid.
  • Mazda B Series: It’s been long enough since Mazda offered a pickup truck in the United States that many may not even know that was the case. But with trucks leaning more and more into luxury, technology, and efficiency, the time seems ripe for Mazda to consider a revival.

If you’re looking to see what Mazda is offering in the present, be sure to visit Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York. And have a happy and safe Halloween!

Introducing the All-New Mazda MX-30

New Mazda MX-30 | Wantagh, NY

Mazda is making the move to electrify its lineup, and it all starts with the upcoming Mazda MX-30. The Mazda MX-30 battery-electric vehicle will launch in the fall of this year in California before rolling out more widely next year, and it will be joined by a plug-in hybrid that brings an iconic piece of Mazda history into the world of tomorrow.

According to President of Mazda North American Operations Jeff Guyton, the upcoming Mazda MX-30 will be the first phase of its adaptation to a changing world. Among the electrified models that will follow are “a series plug-in hybrid with a rotary generator for the Mazda MX-30, a plug-in hybrid for our new large platform, and a traditional hybrid for our new American-made crossover.”

It’s been confirmed that the Mazda MX-30 plug-in hybrid EV will release sometime next year, and it will likely be one of the next new vehicles to appear in the showroom at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York. By using a rotary generator to charge the battery, Mazda recalls the classic Wankel engine that powered driver favorites like the Mazda RX-7 and Mazda RX-8.

“The rotary generator will mark the return of our unique rotary powertrain,” Guyton said. “This technology is being engineered for nearly silent operation and will replenish the battery rather than drive the wheels. As a result, the Mazda MX-30 will always drive like the engaging EV that it is, but with freedom to charge from the wall or on the go.”

If you’re interested in going green, stay tuned. It sounds like Mazda has a lot of big plans on the horizon, and you’ll find the results right here at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York.

Tips for Maintaining a Luxury Vehicle

Mazda Service | Wantagh, NY

If you’ve chosen a Mazda, it’s clear that you value stylish good looks and upscale amenities. The Mazda CX-5 is a perfect example of this — with luxury features like heated seats, leather upholstery, and a 10.25-inch full-color touch-screen display. But if you want to keep those refined features in peak condition, you’ll have to take care of your vehicle. Here are some tips to help you maintain your car and safeguard your investment.

Expert Service

Regular maintenance is key to helping your vehicle retain value. When you bring your car in for a checkup at Wantagh Mazda, we’ll perform a Mazda Full Circle Inspection. We’ll make sure every aspect of your vehicle is in peak condition, from its mechanical components to its fluids, lights, and climate control systems.

Interior

Dust can dull the luster of your vehicle’s interior. Keep that driver-centric cockpit in pristine condition by vacuuming twice per week, paying special attention to the cloth and carpeted surfaces. Use an appropriate brush-like attachment to avoid damaging your car’s seats. If you have leather seats in your Mazda, maintain them with a microfiber cloth and a specialized leather cleaner. Condition them afterward to keep them soft and supple.

Exterior

Mazda vehicles are famed for their “KODO: Soul of Motion” design philosophy, which uses sculpted curves to make light and shadow dance across the car’s exterior. Showcase this stunning design by regularly washing and waxing the exterior of your Mazda.

Regular vehicle maintenance is actually smart money management — it’s better to get regular service, so you can catch a small issue before it becomes a full-blown problem. If you’d like the best care for your Mazda, bring it to our service center at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York.
