2018 Mazda3

What makes a brand better in this day and age? U.S. News and World Report has ranked them all and has bestowed Best Car Brand on Mazda. This is Mazda's third year winning this prestigious designation.

The award shows the strength of the compact Mazda3, Mazda6 midsize sedan, and exciting MX-5 Miata. These cars are recognized by the magazine for attractive cabin designs. In particular, the magazine likes how the Mazda3 and Mazda6 have upscale designs with high quality materials. The Miata is praised for its contemporary upscale feel with soft touch points and sporty round air vents. Each of these cars is a class leader in quality cabins, and that’s especially notable since their pricetags are among the lowest in their segment. Next the reviewer notes user-friendly technology and accommodating seats as common denominators. All three have engaging driving dynamics for their style and class.

To make the decision based on data, not opinion alone, U.S. News ranked the brands based on the overall scores of all cars in the lineup. These, in turn, were determined based on reliability data, safety scores, and an overall consensus of automotive press leaders. Mazda Cars are made beautiful by the brand’s KODO design motif.

Artfully crafted, the cars are also technologically advanced. Body construction and powertrain development come together in the brand’s lightweight SkyActive Technology. Drivers get performance without sacrificing efficiency.

The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is another example of Mazda excellence. Tied for number one in sports cars at U.S. News and World Report, the car has remarkably fun driving dynamics. It's lightweight build and 50/50 weight distribution helps it do more with every horse under the hood. It's also the rare sports car to offer crash avoidance features. You can get a blind spot monitor, a lane departure watch, and a rear cross-traffic alert.
