2003 Mazda Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Mazda’s integration into both road-ready and track-ready cars has made it a stand-out brand for generations, but it’s the manufacturer’s dedication to improving everything it sets out to sell that’s most impressive. In 2003, Mazda dropped the Capella from its line, replacing it with the more up-to-date Mazda6, and added the speed-focused RX-8, an exciting new addition for racing enthusiasts. The RX-8 included various drivetrain options, a 50/50 front-rear weight distribution, a turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower, and extreme agility. Most other vehicles in the 2003 lineup received notable updates, including the B2300 truck with its new extended cab version and exterior tweaks to the front end, and the MX-5 Miata’s new 16-inch wheels and a standard anchoring system for child safety seats. New to the Protege5 was a Laser Blue Mica exterior color, floor mats, and an optional package with a moonroof and six-disc CD changer.
