This coming Father’s Day weekend, Mazda Philippines will be having its annual test drive showcase at Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. From June 15 to 17, Zoom Fest will bring together the full lineup of 2018 Mazda models along with special promotions that are sure to make purchasing a Mazda a worthwhile experience.

“Zoom Fest has been a key touch point for Mazda and our customers over the past five years,” says Mazda Philippines President and CEO Steven Tan. “We know this weekend is special not only for fathers but for whole families as well and because of that, we always make it a point to come back here every year to showcase our award-winning models and give our customers a feature-filled display and test drive experience.”

Mazda fans and customers will enjoy a unique insight into the brand’s engineering culture and design heritage. Brand masters will explain the concept of Jinba Ittai, the horse and rider that ties the whole lineup together, so you can fully appreciate the intricacies of Mazda’s design preferences that make all its cars truly fun to drive.

Aside from highlighting Mazda’s Jinba Ittai philosophy in each and every model on display, this year’s Zoom Fest will again be the venue to bring in new additions to the SKYACTIV model range.

New for 2018 is the Mazda2 Premium Series Java Edition, which introduces the new Titanium Flash color, and the soon-to-arrive Premium Series Katana Edition, which radiates with the Mazda signature Machine Grey shade. Both variants add more maturity and class to the top-spec Mazda2 Premium Series line.

Mazda’s all-new signature color, Soul Red Crystal, will now be the new Mazda2 Premium Series Crimson Edition for a bolder and more vibrant hue that is sure to make heads turn. Among the other new features in the Mazda2 for 2018 are the updated interiors, the shark fin antenna in the new Premium Series variants, and the new 15-inch alloy wheels for the entry-level manual transmission-equipped S variant.

Also on display this weekend is the automatic transmission-equipped 2018 MX-5 with its new Dark Cherry soft top canopy. And due to insistent public demand, the MX-5 RF with six-speed SKYACTIV manual transmission makes its debut at Zoom Fest as well. This latest variant of the MX-5 caters to those who want to be more engaged in their drive while valuing the security of a retracting solid roof. Both these additions, along with a host of safety, comfort, and handling improvements, ensure the desirability of the world’s most popular sports car for years to come.

Zoom Fest will also introduce an all-new variant in the Mazda Crossover Series lineup, the front-wheel drive CX-9 Sport Touring—the latest addition to the seven-seater crossover nameplate. Complimenting the all-wheel drive CX-9 Grand Touring, this new model comes with the same 2.5-liter SKYACTIV Turbocharged engine that not only provides instantaneous power and lively performance, but also does so without penalizing fuel economy as compared to older generation six-cylinder engines. The starting price of the CX-9 Sport Touring is at P2,350,000.

The CX-9 Sport Touring is differentiated by its dark silver 18-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps. Standard premium features include leather interiors, power seats for both the driver and front passenger, and the MazdaConnect Information and Entertainment system with a six-speaker configuration. The Adaptive LED Headlamps, electric glass sunroof, power rear lift gate, 12-speaker Bose sound-system, Active Driving Display, auto dimming rear view mirrors, and rear sunshade amenities shall remain solely in the CX-9 Grand Touring variant with a starting suggested retail price of P2,830,000.

Owning a new Mazda will likewise be made easier at Zoom Fest. Customers who make a minimum P5,000 reservation during the event will have a chance to win raffle prizes and bring home merchandise from the all-new 2018 Mazda Collection. Prizes such as Shell fuel vouchers or additional discount vouchers valued from P10,000 up to P100,000 await lucky customers during the three-day display. Cash vouchers could also be used as discounts in the purchase of their new Mazda vehicle until July 31, 2018.

The 2018 Mazda Zoom Fest promises to be yet another spectacular showcase of the best models available from the premium Japanese brand. Along with exciting new variants of the refreshed Kodo: Soul of Motion-inspired lineup, big discounts and gifts await fans and customers alike who will make this Father’s Day weekend their time to purchase a new Mazda.
