Yes, even in this bad economy cars can and do smile


The New Mazda MX-5 is all smiles, and ready to meet the public at the Chicago Auto Show.

This newest take on what used to be more commonly known as the Mazda Miata will zoom zoom out into the crowds on February 13, when the 2009 Chicago Auto Show opens to the general public.

"The MX-5 Miata has been true to
Mazda's Zoom-Zoom philosophy since rolling off the assembly line 20
years ago," said Tim Barnes, Director, Product Development.

"Long before Zoom-Zoom became one of the most recognizable slogans
around, Mazda designed Miata to epitomize the 'emotion of motion'
concept on which Zoom-Zoom is based, and our worldwide sales are a real
testament to Miata's DNA and spirit," he added

Besides the wide smile, the new car gets more horse power (167) new interior and exterior colors, as well as new option packages for 2009.

This newest model celebrates the 20th anniversary for what has now become the world's best-selling two-seat roadster with over 800,000 sold around the world.

Now that's a reason to smile—especially for a car.
