About Mazda Vehicles

Vehicle Summary

With headquarters in Japan, Mazda is owned by the Mazda Motor Corporation and has a history dating back to 1920. Originally, Mazda produced a line of three-wheeled trucks; over the years, however, Mazda became known for their sporty cars and crossover SUVs.

Since its release in 2003, the Mazda3 has been a great choice in compact cars—offering both sedan and hatchback body styles with seating for up to five people. The 2018 Mazda3 comes with a standard 2.0L, four-cylinder engine at 155 hp and other standard features, such as a seven-inch touchscreen, rearview camera, and forward-collision warning system with emergency braking. It also comes with a six-speed manual transmission, though a six-speed automatic is optional.

Craving something sportier? The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a sleek roadster with seating for two, as well as a 2.0L four-cylinder engine at 155 hp. Other features you'll find standard on the MX-5 Miata include a retractable soft-top, keyless entry/ignition, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and seven-inch touchscreen interface.

For those with greater seating and/or storage needs, the three-row CX-9 crossover is another choice to consider. In addition to 72 cubic feet of maximum storage space, the 2017 CX-9 boasts a standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine at 250 a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic tri-zone climate control, and a rearview camera. All-wheel drive is also optional on all CX-9 models.

From compact and sporty roadsters (like the MX-5 Miata) to more practical sedans and crossover SUVs, Mazda offers a wide range of vehicles to suit different driving needs.

Great car for a first time buyer like me

Okay so this was my first vehicle purchase ever. I wanted to upgrade from my ‘07 Chevy Cobalt coupe. My main criteria was that it had to be an awd SUV. It actually wasn’t my first choice, but after test driving two other crossover vehicles, this was the clear front runner. It has ample passenger seating and cargo space (fold down seats) while not being too big of a car (I’m 5’3”). The car is powerful for its size, has great gas mileage (I only have to fill up once a week), and is pretty nimble. The Bose sound system definitely helped seal the deal. Also the blind spot detection is great. I wanted a vehicle that wasn’t so cookie cutter but just a reliable as say a Nissan Rogue, Hyundai Tucson, or Honda CR-V. I’ve had no issues so far.

  • Cabin Noise: Just a bit noisy. But only noticeable if you’re driving in silence.

2 in 1 Family Economy Car& Awesome Sportscar

On a crosscountry roadtrip with a family of 4 it was incredibly spacious and comfortable (we got the hatchback grand touring 3i model). On that roadtrip we got the average mpg up to 41mpg (mostly on the highway). Around town and when out on a night off it is extremely fun. While the great mpg suffers, the sports shift can be used to make it go, and I mean Really GO, when you put on the gas and low gear it! It came loaded with a truly superior stock sound system with multiple subwoofers that shake all the mirrors when you crank it up, without the slightest hint of distortion. The steering is super tight and responsive. As I have gotten to know this car I have come to love an appreciate Mazda engineering. To quote Mazda.... ZOOM ZOOM!!

The right car for us at a good price

We purchased the tour model with many extras and all wheel drive. It had everything we wanted and none of the extras that were in the grand tour model. If we still lived in Reno NV we would have wanted the heated seats but we now live in SE Alabama so we would have used them 4 or 5 days a year. Everything else was with the car is perfect for our lives. AWD is still needed in the heavy rains we get here even though we don't get ice or snow. The CX-5 is quiet, comfortable and powerful. She purrs like a kitten.


  • Reliability: CR good bet for long term reliability
  • Power: 185 horses. Best in class
  • Weather Versatility: We like going to the mountains. And we get lots of rain. AWD makes a difference


  • Visibility: There are blind spots but rear camera helps
  • Technology and Entertainment: Controls not intuitive but once you get used to them they work well
  • Interior Space: Rear seats a little tight when you have 4 adults in the car.
