HIROSHIMA, Japan -- Mazda Motor is entering a challenging period in its product cycle, with no major launches planned until a large, high-end platform debuts in the fiscal year through March 2023.

The carmaker plans to keep making smaller improvements to existing offerings in hopes of maintaining its appeal. But buyers may still flock to competitors that fully redesign or newly launch models in the same categories.
