Biggers Mazda carries the latest Mazda models. The Mazda Motor Company dates back to the 1920s. Today the company creates sporty, fast, and fun cars ranging from high-performance models like the 2013 MX-5 Miata to crossover SUVs like the 2013 Mazda CX-5. They are also dedicated to improving the fuel economy of all their vehicles by reducing curb weights and introducing new fuel-efficient SKYACTIV technology.
Mazda showcased many of their new vehicles at the recent 2013 Chicago Auto Show, the 105th edition of the largest and longest running auto show in the United States. The show concluded on February 18th and runs every year at Chicago’s McCormick Place where it is open to the public.
The Chicago Auto Show originally began in 1901under the direction of Motor Age magazine. Held at 58,000 square foot Coliseum exposition hall, a former Civil War prison, the Auto Show only took up a 300 by 170 feet space where vendors could show their “horseless carriages.”
The original auto show featured a small lap track where companies could show the vehicles in action. At this point, the general public, who only had to pay 50 cents to get into the show, was still very unfamiliar with automobiles and were quite worried about safety. One of the vehicles on display was the 1901 Motorette produced by George N. Pierce Company, featuring a water-cooled one-cylinder engine capable of less than three hp. The vehicle was controlled with a tiller rather than a wheel.
