Mazda Brings Its New Generation to Chicago
So, it’s probably fitting that this year, on returning to Chicago, Mazda brought along three different MX-5s—the production-model 2016 MX-5, and the two MX-5 concepts made for the SEMA show back in early November: the MX-5 Speedster and the MX-5 Spyder (the Speedster is the blue one, and the Spyder is in silver).

Side note: nobody was supposed to get in the concept vehicles—those two guys were shortly ousted from the car.
In addition, Mazda brought the latest addition to its new-generation lineup—the 2016 CX-9, a three-row crossover revealed in all its redesigned glory at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Product specialists was sure to show off the crossover’s Napa leather interior, exclusive to the 2016 CX-9 Signature trim level (and looking all kinds of gorgeous).
Mazda made this to be evocative of horse saddles, a nod to the automaker’s Jinba Ittai (“horse and rider as one”) philosophy, which represents the idea that “drivers should have utter confidence and control in their vehicles.”
