140610aMazda has announced that the upcoming all-new Mazda2 will feature the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, a newly-developed 1.5-liter clean diesel engine using Mazda’s next-generation SKYACTIV technology.

Similar to the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine in the CX-5, the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 was developed for ideal combustion despite a low compression ratio. The result is an engine that boasts outstanding dynamic performance, with torque equal to a 2.5-liter gas engine, linear acceleration, and excellent environmental performance.

Congratulations to Audrey TeBos, Winner of the $5,000 Giveaway!

December 13th, 2013

audreytebos_winnerAudrey TeBos not only got a “new best friend” when she purchased her Ford Focus SE last month…to her surprise she also received a nest egg to help launch her career.

At first, the recent Grand Valley State University graduate  thought the multiple messages from Borgman Ford’s Matt Cameron were an unusually enthusiastic  follow-up to her recent purchase. But when she found out that in fact she’d won $5,000 in Borgman’s Cash Giveaway, to say she was shocked would be an understatement.

“I couldn’t believe it. I had to pinch myself. In fact, I still can hardly believe it,”  the 24-year-old said Friday when she visited the dealership to pick up her check.

The cash couldn’t come at a better time for Audrey. As a GVSU graduate who majored in Sports Management, she’s on a countrywide search for the perfect job to launch her career in collegiate athletics.

“I may have to to move for employment purposes, so this will help make for a very good start,” she said.

The team at Borgman is delighted that the Cash Giveaway winner turned out to be a young graduate starting out, and that the money will help launch her job search and ultimate career move.

“This is just like watching someone open a great gift on Christmas morning,” said Matt Borgman, General Manager, after meeting with Audrey to deliver her check.

Audrey’s brother, Chris, has other ideas about what she should do with her winfall, centering around gift-giving. He’d like a PS4 in his stocking. However, Audrey thinks sister-Santa may not be squandering her new-found nest-egg on games when things like rent and relocation loom.

Autoblog calls 2014 Mazda3 the “Best Driver’s Car in the Compact Car Segment”

October 8th, 2013

2014-mazda3-sedan-fdAutoblog has called the 2014 Mazda3 the ‘best driver’s car in the compact car segment,’ and we at Borgman Mazda are inclined to agree. Just like the CX-5 and Mazda 6, we’re loving the integrated, ground-up design. Read a few excerpts of Jeremy Korziniewski’s review, then check out the page, complete with video interview, at

Here are some excerpts:

“Mazda has engineered its latest crop of vehicles – namely the CX-5, Mazda6 and its smaller sibling and subject of this test, the Mazda3 – from the ground up. Absolutely everything about the Mazda3 is refined for 2014, from its chassis to its engines and everything in between, and it was done in a completely new and holistic way. Every component, subcomponent and stamping required to bolt and weld together an automobile was rethought to ensure the Mazda3 has what it takes to compete with established benchmarks…”Autoblog reviewer Jeremy Korziniewski writes.

“The 2014 Mazda3 looks awfully pretty in pictures, but its shapes are even better when viewed up close and personal. As the latest car to benefit from Mazda’s Kodo design language, the 3 draws plenty of inspiration from the CX-5 and Mazda6, both of which we think are rather attractive vehicles.”

“…The 3 is the best driver’s car in the compact car segment. Steering is a delight, aided by a rack-mounted electronic power steering unit and front-end geometry that is exactly the same as that of the well-regarded RX-8 and the current MX-5 Miata…”

August 26th, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-08-26 at 10.47.38 AMAs the only Asian car company to ever win the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans, Mazda has a unique and nearly unmatched heritage in racing. From the company’s first foray into international motorsport at the 1968 84-hour Marathon de la Route, all the way to today’s SKYACTIV-D clean diesel-powered Mazda6 competing in the Grand Am Rolex GX class, the company has always used racing to improve the brand. At the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Mazda celebrated its racing successes the way it always has: by competing.

Mazda maintains a fleet of heritage racecars at its Irvine, Calif. headquarters, and has chosen to bring three to Monterey this year – a 1990 787 Group C prototype, 1991 RX-7 IMSA GTO and 1992 RX-792P IMSA GTP.
