Mazda Plans to Launch Five New Models by 2016

According to the managing director of Mazda U.K., the Japanese automaker plans on launching five new models within three years.

With the new Mazda3 already being a hit in various markets worldwide, Mazda looks to build on that success by launching more new products by 2016. First up will likely be a redesigned Mazda2 sub-compact, presumably sporting the same style and design that has made the Mazda3 and Mazda6 popular.

A year after that, the next-generation MX-5 will finally make its long-awaited debut. The new MX-5 will be a joint project with Alfa Romeo. After that, we’ll be seeing replacements for the Mazda5 and CX-5 by 2016 while a new 4×4 will also debut that year.

“Over the next 18 months to two years we will continue our very strong product-led growth,” said Thomson “We’re predicting good times ahead while the rest of the industry is predicted to be relatively flat.”
