Grab a vision of 2020 at O’Brien’s Garage Midleton

O’Brien’s Garage Midleton, the award-winning home of Mazda in Cork, launch their week-long 2020 Mazda Open Sales Event today, Thursday by hosting an exclusive 2020 Vision Information Evening at their showroom on the Cork Road, Midleton from 6pm-9pm.

O’Brien’s Garage have been in business since 1988, when it was set up in Midleton by Philip O’Brien as a service centre. Since being appointed Mazda retailers in 1996, the team at O’Brien’s have seen a number of changes in the motor industry both for their business and their customers.

The industry is going through huge changes, commented Philip O’Brien. “Now more than ever before, the Irish motorist is bombarded with conflicting messages across all media platforms between the pros and cons of traditional combustion engines and the fast paced development of new technologies, which has made the decision of what car to buy a very difficult one to make.

“One thing is certain for the Irish motorists, with the lack of comprehensive public transport infrastructure and an insufficient amount of electric charging stations, we all need a car to get from A to B, whether A to B is 10 or 100kms distance.

“The decision on what car is right for you has become a dilemma. In an effort to break through the noise, O’Brien’s Garage invites all of its valued customers, past, present and future, to attend their 2020 Vision Information evening tonight from 6pm to 9pm,” he said.

On the night, O’Brien’s Garage will play host to product experts from Mazda Ireland who will be showcasing the new Mazda range and their latest technologies. It’s an opportunity to see their new cars alongside product experts to allow you the opportunity to see what Mazda is right for you.

Mazda is embracing the changes in today’s fast evolving motor industry as its entire model range now enters its next generation in design and quality all powered by the latest fuel efficient engines equipped with hybrid technology.

Skyactiv-X technology

What is the value of ‘X’, a question that may cast your mind back to a maths class that sends shivers down your spine! Don’t sweat, Mazda has the answer this time.

During 2019, Mazda released details of its revolutionary Skyactiv-X Engine which is available in the all-new Mazda3. Featuring Mazda’s unique spark plug controlled compression ignition (SPCCI) technology, the 2.0 litre, four-cylinder Skyactiv-X engine is the world’s first commercial petrol unit to combine the spark ignition of a petrol engine with the compression ignition of a diesel.

Providing drivers with the free-revving performance of a gasoline engine and the superior response of a diesel, the all-new Mazda3 Skyactiv-X3 delivers 180PS and 224Nm of torque. The new Mazda3 Skyactiv-X Saloon achieved 96 g/km CO2 emissions and a fuel economy of 4.3 l/100km.

The Mazda3 Skyactiv-X3 is also equipped with Mazda M Hybrid technology, fitted as standard. The intelligent 24V mild-hybrid system minimises fuel consumption, increasing fuel economy and lowering emissions by recycling energy recovered during deceleration that powers an electric motor that assists the engine.

Style and safety

The all-new 2019 Mazda3 has been awarded the maximum five-star rating by Euro NCAP in its latest series of tests. Following the Mazda6 last year, this is the second Mazda to achieve an overall five-star rating under the new, more stringent 2018 Euro NCAP crashworthiness ratings.

The new Mazda3 performed impressively in all four Euro NCAP test categories - Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User (pedestrian safety) and Safety Assist.

This may be attributed to three key factors: the adoption of the very latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which features a high-rigidity, impact-absorbing yet lightweight bodyshell; an even wider range of advanced i-Activsense safety technologies to help drivers identify potential risks and reduce the likelihood of damage or injury; and enhanced pedestrian protection performance.

Superior driving dynamics throughout the Mazda vehicle range are a vindication of the company’s painstaking Skyactiv Technology programmes. They also contribute to the new Mazda3’s five-star Euro NCAP achievement, in the form of its linear, responsive and predictable acceleration, braking, handling and steering.

By making the car easier to drive safely, such attributes further reduce the potential for accidents without compromising Mazda’s traditional fun-to-drive character.

Discover the value of X for yourself at the O’Brien’s Garage 2020 Vision Information Evening tonight and throughout their 2020 Mazda Open Sales Event until Friday 22 November, where the all new Mazda 3 equipped with Skyactiv-X technology will be on display and available to test drive.

The new CX-30

The CX-30 is a new compact crossover that combines the bold proportions of an SUV with elegant styling that embodies Mazda’s Kodo design language.

Relaxed and user-friendly packaging and a cabin that comfortably seats four adults mean customers can easily enjoy trips to any destination with family and friends. Moreover, the CX-30 was designed to be easy to drive. The increased height over a passenger car provides excellent visibility and makes getting in and out a breeze while the body size makes it easy to manoeuvre on any road and in any parking lot.

Basic performance attributes such as accelerating, turning and braking have been dramatically enhanced. Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture enables people to make the most of their natural sense of balance and the latest Skyactiv engines, including Skyactiv-X, allow responsive control of vehicle speed in any driving situation.

The 2020 Vision Information and Test Drive Evening takes place at O’Brien’s Garage Midleton this Thursday evening 14 November from 6pm. The O’Brien’s Garage 2020 Vision Mazda Sales Event continues daily until 22 November.
