Mazda 3 : a streamlined compact

The war between car manufacturers is ruthless in the family compact segment of the C-segment market; an extremely competitive market especially in Western Europe. In this category; where the best selling cars are the  Volkswagen Golf, the Ford Focus or the Renault Megane ; Japanese car manufacturer Mazda can now count on a new, extremely streamlined model. Sporting a modern design, the car’s weight has been greatly reduced compared with the previous generation to offer vastly improved fuel economy and top-level dynamic handling.

A Toyo Tire as original equipment

Toyo Tire is delighted to announce this partnership with Mazda to equip the  Mazda 3 as original equipment. It is the NanoEnergy R38 that has been selected to fit the compact Japanese car. Moreover, it is the first time a tyre from the NanoEnergy range is fitted as original equipment on a car. No doubt the tyre manufacturer hopes to expand this range as an original equipment fitment in the future. The NanoEnergy R38, in size 205/60 R16 92V, is a low rolling resistance tyre with “very satisfying” dynamic qualities, says its manufacturer.
