Mazda Models Awarded as Car of the Year Japan


Ever since Mazda Familia had won the 1st Japan Car of the Year award in 1980, Mazda has received the Japan Car of The Year award six times in total.  
Most recently, we won the Japan Car of the Year award three times during the last four years, for the CX-5 in 2012, Mazda 2 in 2014, and the MX-5 in 2015.
In addition to the attractiveness of vehicles, Mazda's concept for car-making and product engineering/manufacturing are highly rated as well.
It would not have been possible without a lot of support we have received from you all. Thank you very much.
