To learn about other 2021 releases from the worlds’ largest automakers, check out the rest of our Series:

#1 2021 Mazda MX-30

Instead of going through the usual production stages, Mazda’s first all-electric model MX-30 skips the concept level and will be soon arriving to the showrooms in the same guise and specifications as the Tokyo 2019 autoshow debut.


In 2020, Mazda celebrated 100 years since its establishment, and to commemorate this monumental date in the company’s history, released exclusive 100th Anniversary edition for most cars in its range. In 2021, one of those is finally making it to the US shores.

#3 2021 Mazda BT-50

You might not be aware of this, but Mazda has been an active player on the pickup market since 2006, when its BT-50 truck started production. In 2021, the model enters its 3rd generation and arrives reengineered from the ground up.

#4 2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo

The new turbo-powered 2021 Mazda3 once again proves that a small and relatively affordable car doesn’t have to be boring. The main asset of this model is the Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter turbocharged engine: on premium fuel, it makes 250 hps and 320lb-ft, distributed to all 4 wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

#5 Mazda 6 & CX-5 & CX-9 Carbon Edition
Mazda’s upper market entries are not getting significant mechanical or design changes in 2021, but the trio of flagships represented by the Mazda 6 sedan, CX5 and CX9 SUVs all share the exclusive special trim on the North American market.


Mazda RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT is one of the newest additions to the Sony PlayStation’s exclusive Gran Turismo Sport series. The model is based on the real RX-Vision concept first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2015. However, the virtual version boasts wider and far more aggressive bodywork with huge wheel arches and large hood air outlet.

#7 2021 MAZDA CX-30 2.5 TURBO

The naturally aspirated SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L with 186 horsepower, used to be the most powerful mill on offer by Mazda’s subcompact crossover CX-30. In 2021, the engine roster has grown to include a turbocharged version of the mill, the same one already been presented for the Mazda 3.

#8 2021 Mazda CX-3

Launched in 2016 and facelifted in 2019, Mazda CX-3 carries over largely unchanged this year. The model is offered in a single Sport trim, that rides on 16-inch wheels, gets improved LED headlights with automatic on-off, and now offers night-vision pedestrian detection as a part of the standard safety package.
