Mazda Miata at Chicago Auto Show
CHICAGO - The Mazda Miata long has been the sweetheart of the Mazda lineup. Men and women alike have fallen in love with this pure sports car since its debut in 1989. And this year, hearts will throb again as Mazda unveils its two newest Miata Special Editions (SE) on Thursday, February 7 at 12:15 p.m.
The SE limited-production versions of the popular two-seater are equipped with a host of features making it the "raciest" SE to date. It's available in two exhilarating colors - Titanium Gray Metallic and Blazing Yellow Mica - and will hit showrooms in mid-March.
Mazda also will show its new 2003 MAZDA6 sedan, which goes on sale in the U.S. in January 2003, and the MAZDA6 5-door. With class-leading performance, style, packaging and value, the MAZDA6 symbolizes Mazda's return to producing the kind of cars that established the automaker's Zoom-Zoom image and set new industry standards.
Rounding out Mazda's display is the complete 2002 line-up of vehicles, including the classic Miata roadster; the new 200-horsepower MPV; the 130-horsepower Protegé compact sedan and the trend-setting Protegé5 that's created an all-new market segment.
In addition, the sporty 626 family sedan; technologically advanced Miller-cycle-powered Millenia luxury performance sedan; the Tribute compact SUV with the soul of a sports car; and Mazda Truck, which now offers a new off-road package will be on display.
