Mazda B4000 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Which mid-size, diesel SUV should I buy?
Mazda’s SUV range (CX-5 and CX-8) are popular with their owners and have a good reputation in the trade. Crucially, they’re also available with a turbo-diesel engine, so they fit your criteria on that basis. We’d also suggest you take a good look at the South Korean brands’ offerings (Hyundai and Kia) as these are also highly rated by the trade and those companies have been involved with small-capacity diesel engines for decades, so the technology is pretty well sorted.
It’s interesting that you’ve had a good run from your Holden Captiva as that is far from the experience of many owners and former owners of this particular vehicle. As the Captiva ages it is very likely to start giving trouble, so the best advice is to trade up to a newer vehicle sooner rather than later.Show more
Mazda 4 - A bigger hatchback than the 3?
Mazda is unlikely to increase the number of its passenger car models, given the contracting nature of such body styles in favour of crossovers and SUVs.
Also, note that a CX-4 has existed in China for a number of years, slotting tightly between the CX-3 and CX-5 as a sleeker coupe version of the latter, so if you do see a '4' (or, more likely, a '40') on the tailgate of a Mazda in the future, it might be sat on an SUV-shaped rather than hatchback-shaped five-door.Show more
Mazda 7 - Will Mazda build a bigger sedan than the 6?
Probably not, sadly.
The slower-than-anticipated sales of the Mazda6 series over the past decade, combined with Mazda's hesitation to replace the existing, nine-year-old model, suggests that there is not a larger sedan in the pipeline.
However, with Mazda marching upmarket and its ties with Toyota strengthening, a joint-venture project with Toyota or even Lexus, using Mazda's new rear-drive platform and inline six-cylinder engine range, may make a model-sharing premium flagship – like a Mazda7 or even Mazda9 – a possibility.
But please don't hold your breath on this one because it is merely conjecture on our behalf.Show more
