Mazda Corporation and Galadari Automobiles Co. Ltd (LLC) (GAL), the sole distributor for Mazda vehicles in the UAE, and flagship member of the Galadari Brothers Group of Companies, are proud to announce the launch of the world’s favorite sports car, the all-new Mazda MX-5 in the UAE. The show also witnessed the first official premier of the first-ever Mazda CX-3 compact crossover SUV in the UAE and GCC in this year’s edition of the Dubai International Motor Show.
“We are very excited about our participation in this year’s edition of the Dubai International Motor Show. Galadari Automobiles showcased a big range of Mazda’s newest models this year with some being premiered for the first time in the UAE and GCC,” commented Ewan Ramsay, General Manager, Galadari Automobiles.
All-new 2016 Mazda MX-5
Equipped with a 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder 16 valve DOHC petrol SKYACTIV engine, the all-new convertible soft-top Mazda MX-5 offers 160-hp at 6000 RPM and 200 Nm of torque at 4600 RPM.
Breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is behind the exhilarating, yet economical performance. The innovation is applied to every element of the vehicle, unlocking superior handling and better fuel efficiency with a six-speed SKYACTIV transmission. The all-New MX-5 is significantly lighter than the previous model with the chassis, body and suspension system more rigid thanks to the innovative SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY.
MX-5’s reputation for driving pleasure is heightened even further with agile handling that responds with breathtaking reflexes. The iconic MX-5 is back, and more exhilarating than ever.
“The all-New Mazda MX-5 surely delivers, bringing Mazda’s signature KODO Design at its most exciting. Every element and proportion comes together to bring the driver closer to the car and more in tune with the road, and the world around them. We are truly looking forward to seeing a lot more of the world’s favorite sports car on the UAE roads,” added Ramsay.
Over its four generations, the MX-5 has remained an authentic, lightweight sports car. Its engaging, open-air driving style has been discovered by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, making the MX-5 the best-selling roadster of all time.
The sleek design promotes a greater sense of connection to the open-air, and oneness between car and driver. Quality finishes feature throughout, with all controls intuitively positioned to surround the driver in symmetry for optimal driving position and comfort.
Everything about the uncluttered, driver-focused interior has been considered to maximize driving pleasure. A new net structure in both the seatback and cushions reduces vibration for a more comfortable ride. The all-New Mazda MX-5 is the first new generation to be built entirely from the ground up.
The seating and cabin position have all been carefully designed with the driver in mind. The pedals are positioned at the driver’s center so they can be operated effortlessly, giving more control on the road, with the harmony of design and proportion truly realized only from behind the wheel.
Stunning from every angle, it’s almost as exciting to look at as it is to drive.
Galadari Automobiles and Mazda also showcased the all-new Mazda 2 recently launched in the UAE alongside the latest 2016 models of Mazda 3, Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-9.
Galadari Automobiles and Mazda’s official partnership this year also included sponsoring the opening ceremony for the 2015 edition of the motor show and offering the all-new famous sports car Mazda MX-5 as a prize for visitors of the trade show.
