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.
