With Ford giving up most of its 33.4 percent stake in Mazda back in 2008, the brand has released its first model featuring its new architecture, with the CX-5 compact crossover.

As an independent automaker, Mazda planned to reestablish themselves with new engines and underpinnings, and fresh designs, starting with Kodo, on the 2010 Shinari concept and March’s CX-5 concept.

his parallels Volvo’s strategy after its break from Ford last year, as well, which was sold for $1.5 billion to Zhejiang Geely Holding Co. The current designs have yet to be named, but will be for front- and all-wheel drive vehicles for release in Japan in March, and Europe in April.

The scaleable vehicle architecture will also be featured in the upcoming Mazda3 replacement, Mazda 6, and the CX-7, and will eventually span 80 percent of the brands worldwide volume.
