New Renault models and the end of the road for the Mazda 5


Renault have been making the headlines over the past number of weeks thanks to the new Kadjar model which will be displayed next month and will look to knock the Nissan Qashqai off of the top spot on the SUV market. However the company are working on the production of a new crossover vehicle which is said to be much larger than the Kadjar. For now the car is being called the D crossover and the design chief of Renault Laurens Van Den Acker confirmed that the car would be built in China but says there is a strong chance it will go on sale on the European market also. The new crossover will adapt the same driving platform used in the Nissan X trail due to their partnership with them.

 

Renault launching five vehicles this year

Renault have returned in our post now with the news that for the duration of this year alone, they will be set to produce and launch a total of five brand new vehicles. Carlos Ghosn who is the boss of Renault has said that they will be looking at both new A and D segment vehicles this year with the new Kadjar of course being one of them. The new Espace vehicle and a pick up truck are also to be included in that line up. That is three models which leaves room for two brand new vehicles but there is some mystery surrounding what they may be. We previously spoke of the new crossover being produced but that isn't expected to arrive for around two years time here in the UK.

 

The end of the Mazda 5

In some sad news for Mazda fans, the company have this week confirmed that their Mazda 5 model is all set to end its production and is not going to be replaced by another vehicle in the future. The firm have not given a date as to when the cars run will be over but have instead stated that the car will be phased out gradually. Customers can still purchase the car and order one for now though from their local Mazda dealer. The Mazda 5 has been in production for over fifteen years but the reason the car is going out of production is due to the lack of sales that it has been receiving on an annual basis. Other cars in the same segment such as the Qashqai have dominated the market and taken a lot of sales from the Mazda 5. It will be sad to see the end of the vehicle, but at the same time this can give Mazda more time to focus on some of their other models.
