Best car brand: Mazda
Mazda is back for the fifth time to claim the Best Car Brand Award, thanks to its winning combination of performance parts and excellent interior quality. Its three models, Mazda3, Mazda6 and MX-5 Miata, each are unique, but they all feature outstanding performance in their respective classes. Mazda vehicles also feature interiors that meet luxury standards in terms of comfort and quality of materials.
Mazda3 has been redesigned for 2019 and is now one of our best compact cars. Attractive handling, comfortable ride and smooth powertrain make it a package capable of meeting the diverse needs of many different drivers. Mazda3 offers both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, which is a rarity in the compact car segment.
If loadspace is important to you, the available hatchback body design and foldable rear seats should help the Mazda3 meet your needs. Regardless of the body shape, the Mazda3 interior contains high-quality materials, comfortable seats, and an intuitive infotainment system.
The Mazda6 offers many of the same qualities as its compact companion, but with the extra room of a midsize car. You’ll find more space in the back seat, but the increased size does not affect the Mazda6’s performance capabilities. With an optional turbocharged engine and good handling, this midsize sedan is one of the most sporty cars in its class.
While Mazda3 and Mazda6 have their own driving dynamics, the MX-5 Miata is widely regarded as the benchmark for affordable sports cars when it comes to handling and the overall fun factor. The Miata’s compact size and fast powertrain allow you to shoot it around the corners, and the convertible top will send wind to your hair.
The Miata’s sporty character doesn’t mean the operation is completely forgotten, as it also features an easy-to-use infotainment system, comfortable seats and attractive cabin materials that make it a fun place to spend time.
