A little RX-7 history
Prior to our finale, the wonderful world of wedge-shaped supercars nears.
With exotic cars on the horizon, a select few sport compacts soon fight back.
Mazda tries to go near-luxury with its updated Mazda6 Signature edition. Did they succeed? Watch the full review:
Kicking off the top half of our list in action, more serious contenders emerge.
I haven’t met with them in a couple years because they’re two hours away and it’s harder to go that far with an 18-month-old son and other assorted adult responsibilities. Today, we made time and went up for a cruise and a tour of the Jim Beam distillery.
2019 compared to the 2018 version
There’s just no comparison here at all. And if you think that’s unfair, remember that these two compact hatchbacks both debuted in 2004:
I knew that the local Mazda dealer imports Mitsuokas, so... nice weather... time for a ride. In the flesh, the Himiko looked better than I thought it would. Still not-quite-right, but better. Certainly wouldn’t enjoy pulling out of t-junctions.

It’s unclear if those specs will carryover to the U.S. powerplant, but do expect only an automatic transmission to be offered”
Yesterday was my first cars and coffee experience. I drove the Autozam and it did not disappoint. The shear volume of cars and people talking about cars was overwhelming. I only had time to take one picture before I left:
Went to test drive these fun to drive Family Sedans this weekend. Here are my thoughts.
