Mazda MX3: Shining Through the Dark Ages

Author: Kimberly Meyer
If there are the Dark Ages in the journey through history, there
also are some gloomy years and periods in the automobile world.
The late 1980s and 1990s was considered to be the Dark Ages for
most sports coupes. And yet, beneath the gloom, there was one
that stood out and had brought the line on forward. The Mazda
MX3 was the chosen one. Amidst the dark sales and gloomy market
for sports coupes, the Mazda MX3 continued to move forward and
reaped in success. Despite the gloomy period, the Mazda MX3
soared and this period became known as its golden years.

The Mazda MX3 has the capacity to take in a maximum of four
passengers. It made its public debut in 1992. It lived for a
couple of years. The last year for production was in 1998, thus
making the Mazda MX3 a six-year-old wonder. The design and
construction of this sports coupe was based on the Mazda Familia
platform that was known as the EC platform. Perhaps what made
the Mazda MX3 a spectacle was its departure from the classic
styling of the 1980s which was boxy and quite conservative. This
vehicle sported instead smooth fluid lines that showed and
exuded modernity and a higher sense of excellent and comfortable

The Mazda MX3 holds no secrets and is crafted not to deceive.
What you see is what you get. If you see modern styling and
design, that is because the Mazda MX3 has unbridled and
innovative performance parts that give life to the car. Two
engine options are available. These are the 1.6 liter I4 and the
1.8 liter V6. The Mazda MX3 was marketed in different countries
around the globe. With that, the company, Mazda, decided to
market it under different names. In Canada, the Mazda MX3 was
known as the Mazda MX 3 Precidia. In Australia, it was known as
the Eunos 30X. In Japan, the vehicle was called the Eunos
Presso, Autozam AZ 3, and Mazda AZ 3.

This vehicle not only made waves in the automobile industry.
Truth is, it also made a splash in the movie theaters for it was
used and spotted in several movies. In Dumb and Dumber, it was
spotted in a convenience store scene. In Ransom, it was there in
the final shoot out scene. The Whole Nine Yards, viewers saw a
red Mazda MX3 parked in the driveway on the ride side of the
screen. The Fast and the Furious also used the Mazda MX3. Other
films and movies that had Mazda MX3s included Sweet November,
Someone Like You, 15 Minutes, Analyze That, ALIAS, The Italian
Job, Deliver Us From Eva, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Cellular, Saved!,
Spiderman 2, Laws of Attraction and I, Robot.
