Kelly Blue Book Award Winning Mazda

It is an undeniable fact that Mazda vehicles are exceptionally built and have been extremely popular for many generations. In 2014, Mazda3 reached the pinnacle of achievement when it became the fastest-selling vehicle worldwide, with more than four million units sold. As a first generation vehicle established in 2002, the Mazda6 debuted with selling more than one million units, which was faster than any other debut by the automaker. The Mazda MX-5 Miata is the best-selling two-seater sports car with a convertible sold in history. As the new vehicle in the lineup, the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 series have been named as a World Car of the Year Finalist. All of these facts bear witness to the success that Mazda has been able to reach among car buyers who continually want a high-performance vehicle that has exquisite style.

According to Kelly Blue Book (KBB), a trusted and reliable resource in evaluating vehicles for 90 years, the Mazda3, Mazda6, MX-5 Miata, and the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, CX-9, are the epitome of high quality for car buyers. KBB bestowed all the vehicles the 2018 Award for Best Performance and Styling Brand. KBB does an in-depth review of hundreds of cars to provide consumers with the facts to make informed decisions regarding purchases. The process involves experienced analysts driving the vehicles and testing every aspect of the automakers' claims for technology, comfort, safety, and reliability.

KBB selected both the Mazda3 and Mazda6 for being “intensely attractive, playful and sophisticated” vehicles. According to KBB, both cars are more refined and fuel-efficient than any other vehicle in the same class. KBB also pointed out the impressive and abundant safety features for both automobiles. The Mazda6 was also a standout because of its improved interior. The 250 horsepower redesigned 2.5-liter turbocharged engine was noted by KBB for adding to the comfort level of the retuned suspension system.

The MX-5 Miata was called a joy to drive by KBB. It was noted that the new feature of the available Brembo - BBS Recaro package was something special that consumers would greatly benefit from, which includes heated Recaro sports seats as well as Brembo brakes and BBS wheels.

The CX-3 met KBB’s expectations for being the most athletic and most fun-to-drive for a subcompact SUV. The SUV was pointed out as having more features for far-less money when compared to other vehicles in its class. KBB particularly pointed out the suspension of CX-3 as being “impressive” and having an “upscale interior.” According to KBB, the CX-3's option of an all-wheel-drive helps it stand out among other SUV's and offers something that should be recognized as being extraordinary.

The CX-5 was seen by KBB as having a sleek style interior that makes the SUV feel more premium than its selling price-point. KBB specifically singled out the fuel economy and the exceptional driving experience as award-winning features of the CX-5. The new 2.5-liter engine for the SUV was determined to be a preferred value for consumers. The CX-9 was seen as an appealing 3-row crossover SUV. According to KBB, “the styling is more seductive than other brands and the handling is far superior.”
