Mazda Earns Manufacturer of the Year Award

Mazda Manufacturer of the Year

Congrats Mazda!

At the 2017 Automotive Management Awards, Mazda came home with the top accolade of Manufacturer of the Year. This award comes on the tails of a great 2016 and before the release of some exciting new models, including the Mazda Miata MX-5 RF.

Automotive Management’s judges were impressed by the overall Mazda brand and said, “They’re now a brand of great cars, not just the one. Attractive, reliable, and great to drive, if you weren’t familiar with the brand, or it was hidden from you, you’d think you were driving one of the premium brands”.

Over the past few years, Mazda has made a big name for itself in the industry with its excellent reliability, superb KODO – Soul of Motion design, and advanced SKYACTIV Technology. In addition, Mazda believes that every driver deserves to enjoy driving his or her car, which is why every Mazda feels like it becomes a part of you as soon as you start driving.

Whether you’re looking for a compact sedan like the Mazda2, a family-friendly crossover like the CX-5, or a sports coupe like the Miata MX-5, Mazda has what you need. Come experience the entire Mazda lineup today at Gossett Mazda Hyundai Mitsubishi and see for yourself what makes Mazda the best of the best.

In conjunction with the New England Motor Press Association, WheelsTV recently named the 2013-14 Mazda CX-5 the 2016 Pre-Owned Vehicle of the Year. This model was recognized for its unparalleled quality of design, impressive durability, and timeless styling. If you want to get the best used car around, check out the 2013-14 CX-5.

Used cars are becoming more and more popular as the cost of living in the US rises. That means the 2013-14 CX-5 may just be one of the best options for buyers on the market in general, offering a great ride for a great price. Mazda also notes that the CX-5 also received several awards when it first appeared on the market, including a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS and a 2013 Green Car of the Year finalist award.

“The CX-5’s outstanding long-term reliability and exceptional consumer satisfaction made it a stand out in this year’s pre-owned vehicle of the year judging,” WheelsTV said in a statement. “This extraordinary crossover has proven its value through millions of trouble free miles on America’s roads and motorists’ hearts.”

This model comes with a bold exterior with sweeping contours and an iconic front fascia. Under the hood is a powerful 2.0-liter aluminum four cylinder, while a tuned suspension improves handling. This model has everything you could want in a car.

car shoppingCar buying is typically a stressful, and that’s just a universal truth. That’s probably why Edmunds.com set out to find dealerships that make it as easy and convenient as possible for their customers to get their new car and drive away feeling taken care of.

2016 marked the fourth annual Five Star Dealer Awards from Edmunds.com and a total of 23 Mazda dealerships across the country received the top award. These awards aren’t handed out unless the dealership has fully exhibited a strong commitment to excellent customer service and satisfaction. A single dealership must also receive no less than 20 perfect five star reviews over the course of the previous two years on Edmunds.com.

While Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi was not on Edmunds.com exclusive Five Star Dealer Awards list (we’ll get ‘em next year!), we wanted to take the time to recognize our fellow Mazda dealers out there who are doing amazing work.

Plus, we want to assure our customers that we will strive to do whatever we can to earn their business, their trust, and their five-star reviews.

Kevin Rice, Mazda Europe’s Design Director, said, “Balancing tradition and progress, the new model was an exercise in knowing what to change and what not to. And I believe every inch of this car radiates life, movement and the promise of fun behind the wheel.”

In addition to the Best of the Best Award, Mazda claimed two other Red Dot awards. The Mazda CX-3 was recognized for its outstanding design quality, and the Mazda2 earned an “Honorable Mention” award. In total, five new-generation Mazdas have received Red Dot awards.
