Mazda Review in Myanmar Motor Market
In today's Myanmar car market, Mazda was known for their military jeeps, designed during the World War 2 era, that came into Myanmar by the storm. Today Mazda’s utility vehicles with modern style can be found in Myanmar. The number of Mazda coming into Myanmar, however, is much fewer in comparison to those of other manufacturers with similarly-styled utility vehicles. Nowadays, Mazda is predominantly known for their sportier models, such as the RX-7 and the RX-8, well-known for their high performance and sleek looks. The saloon style model, the Mazda 6, is also a proven popular choice. Its sleek and sporty design mixed with luxury amenities make it a top-choice for buyers in Myanmar. For these reasons, Mazda is one of the brands with the highest number of listings on Motors.com.mm, followed closely by Honda and Nissan.
Mazda in Myanmar Used Car Market: Performance and Engine Specifications
Mazda developed a number of engines including the V-Twin, Straight 4, V6 and Piston engines. The most remarkable, however, is the Wankel rotary engine which converts pressure into rotating motion. It produces high revolutions per minute while providing high power output. This engine is at the heart of some of the world’s best sports cars. Skyactiv is the name of the technology used by the automotive company which can be found in the 2014 Mazda 3, the Mazda 6, and the Mazda CX-5. This hybrid technology allows models to increase fuel efficiency, improve automatic transmission and electric power steering, and reduces emission levels thus improving both fuel efficiency and optimum performance. Mazda has collaborated closely with the German automaker NSU to develop its vehicle prototypes. NSU was later acquired by Volkswagen group and later became what we know today as Audi. Throughout World War 2, Mazda fabricated products for the Japanese army and then after the war, retooled its facilities back for civilian products production. Mazda is the only Japanese company to have introduced their cars to Canada before entering the US market. The company’s rotary-powered and piston-powered engines were at the center of most of its models. Compared to the V6 and V8, Mazda’s engines are just as powerful, yet much lighter in weight.
