Conveniently, SEMA will be holding back-to-back measuring sessions, starting August 23–24 with the ’12 Volkswagen Beetle and continuing August 25 with the ’12 Mazda3 4DR and 5DR.

These sessions will provide SEMA-member specialty-parts manufacturers hands-on access to these new vehicles in order to gather surface data in preparation for designing, developing and manufacturing aftermarket parts and accessories. This is also an opportunity to speak directly with both automakers' engineers and technical staff.

The all-new ’12 Volkswagen Beetle will be on display for two days, August 23–24, from 8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m. (PDT) at the Volkswagen of America Inc. Ontario Learning Center in Ontario, California. It is equipped with either a 2.5L five-cylinder or 2.0L TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Each is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The deadline to register is Friday, August 19.

The ’12 Mazda3 4DR and 5DR will be on display August 25, from 8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m. (PDT) at the Mazda North American Operations, Western Region Training Center in Irvine, California. It features a new front fascia, new 16- and 17-in. alloy wheel designs, revised fog lights and door mirrors and new engine/transmission combinations. The deadline to register is Friday, August 22.
