The official launch of the redesigned-for-2017 Mazda CX-5 is just around the corner; it’s slated to begin arriving in dealerships later this spring. The new CX-5 represents an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design theme, a motif that debuted on the Mazda Shinari concept car of 2010. The new bodywork also bears an obvious family resemblance to the CX-5’s larger sibling—the redesigned-for-2016 Mazda CX-9 midsize SUV.

There’s nothing like a bit of historical data to put 2016 new-car prices in context. For a healthy dose of perspective, scroll down to the 1973-model-year Mercedes-Benz prices below and just sort of let them sink in.

LA Auto ShowLOS ANGELES–Mazda displayed the new second generation of its compact crossover SUV at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2017 CX-5 is a fully redesigned model; though it looks to differ little in overall size from its predecessor, Mazda says it has a lower center of gravity and a slightly wider track. Styling is an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion motif, and picks up a cue or two from Mazda’s all-new 2016 CX-9 midsize SUV.

Fast is a relative term. For 2017, there are a number of vehicles that will make the mad dash from a dead stop to 60 mph in three seconds or less. Count the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Ferrari 488 GTB, and Porsche 911 Turbo among them.

2017 NIssan Rogue

Nissan North America Chairman Jose Munoz introduces the refreshed 2017 Rogue on a 7th-floor open parking deck in Miami.

Miami moved its annual auto show from November to early September this year, making it the first show of the new-car selling season. In many cases, that gives visitors (and that includes the press during preview days) their first views of the 2017 models. Below are some of the highlights from Miami.

The best evidence that many modern-day pickup-truck buyers don’t use their trucks as “real” trucks is bed length. For example, Crew Cab versions of the Chevrolet Silverado can be had with a 5.5-foot cargo box—a bed far too small to accommodate the traditional 4 X 8 sheet of plywood, much less a couch. This is telling, because Crew Cab models are far and away the best-selling Silverados.

The average American driver doesn’t spend much time thinking about their vehicle’s tires. At best, conscientious owners make sure their tires are properly inflated to the manufacturer-recommended air pressure, check that they’ve got sufficient tread depth with a “penny test,” and replace their tires before they’re completely worn out.
