The Mazda brand continues to stand ahead of the competition with its lineup of award-winning sedans and SUVs. Mazda vehicles have been reinvented year after year, bringing in the latest designs, features, and updates.
Over the years Mazda had added a seemingly endless array of awards and accolades to its trophy case, from top groups such as in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), Car and Driver, Kelley Blue Book, and more. Below we are going to dive into just some of the top distinctions and titles the members of the Mazda brand have earned this year.
Every year the IIHS evaluates members of the automotive arena and every model from the 2020 Mazda lineup went home with a title this year. The Top Safety Pick+ distinction was awarded to the 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback, Mazda6, CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9. In its first year on the market the 2020 Mazda CX-30 snagged a Top Safety Pick title, impressing enthusiasts across the globe with its top marks right out of the gate.
Like the IIHS, the NHSTA felt the entire 2020 Mazda lineup provides exceptional safety and reliability on the road. During this year’s round of evaluations and ratings, all six members of the Mazda lineup earned an overall 5-star safety rating.
Last year the Kelley Blue Book’s 2019 Brand Image Award for best performance brand was awarded to the Mazda lineup. Now in 2020, Mazda has taken home the title of 2020 Best Car Brand from U.S. News and World Report and this marks the fifth consecutive year Mazda has earned the title. The Mazda brand’s eye for design hasn’t gone unnoticed either, as it earned the 2020 World Car Design of the Year for the 2020 Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback earlier this year.
The team at Car and Driver can’t seem to get enough of the Mazda brand in 2020. Not only did the 2020 Mazda CX-5 earn a spot among the 10Best Cars and Trucks for 2020 list, but the brand swept the competition for editor’s choice awards as well.
If a brand’s past is any indication of its present and future, then the Mazda brand is set for life. Get a look at just a handful of the many awards and titles Mazda has earned over the years.
