Mazda MX-5 Insurance Groups

The Mazda MX-5 comes as two models – the Convertible RF and the Z-Sport soft top. The Convertible RF offers better security and this will be reflected in your insurance premium. Its engine power is either 1.5-litres or 2.0-litres, and both connect to a six-speed manual gearbox. The top-spec RF 2.0 Sport version is also available with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Both engine models are highly optimised and deliver good fuel economy. For top of the range models, there is an optional safety pack, which offers advanced safety features such as Blind Spot Monitoring and High Beam Control. Even though the engines are small, these cars are light and very fast. The 2.0-litre RF can accelerate from 0-60pm in 6.8secs. This pushes it into the mid-range for insurance groups.

Mazda CX-5 Insurance Groups

The Mazda CX-5 is a mid-sized SUV range that has been around since 2012. The new versions of the CX-5 place far more emphasis on technology and comfort than their older counterparts. For example, they feature a technology called G-Vectoring that reduces the movement of the car as it turns corners. The car also has a 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines. It is available with numerous add-ons, such as alloy wheels, a reversing camera, a powered tailgate and a surround-sound system. Be aware that as these modifications increase the performance and value of the car, and in turn can push it into a higher insurance group.

About Mazda

Early Beginnings

Originally a machine tool manufacturer known as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Company and founded in Hiroshima, Japan in 1920, the company almost went bankrupt in 1927. In 1931, the company shifted its focus from machine tools to vehicles, beginning with the Mazda-Go auto-rickshaw.

During the Second World War, the company started making weapons for the Japanese military. In the early 1980s, the brand adopted the Mazda name and every vehicle has had this new moniker ever since.

First Car

The first passenger car was launched in 1960, the Mazda R360 Coupe, and seven years later, the first rotary engine debuted–the Cosmo Sport 110S. In 1970, the company entered the American market with their R100 Coupe. This became the first rotary-powered, mass-produced car in history.

Present Day

The Mazda Motor Corporation is currently headquartered in Japan, and produced a remarkable 1.5 million vehicles in 2015. The company had a partnership with the Ford Motor Company up until 2015, and that same year the brand became the 15th biggest automaker in the world.
