When you’re shopping for a new car, it’s likely you want the best of the best. Well, that now means you should be checking out the Mazda models we have on our lot because Mazda recently achieved the Best Car Brand of 2018 by U.S. News & World Report for the third year in a row.
Mazda managed to come out on top again despite having a small-sized lineup of vehicles. According to Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars, this was due to its “top-notch performance that puts an emphasis on direct, sporty handling, as well as quality interiors that are more upscale than their price tags might suggest.”
The Mazda3 outshone the competition, thanks to its impressive efficiency numbers, premium-level cabin, innovative infotainment system, and available hatchback body style. Deaton noted, “The Mazda3 is one of the sportiest compact cars on the market, but it also offers the civility and comfort required to make it an excellent daily commuting partner.”
U.S. News determined the winner of this prestigious award by averaging the overall score of every brand’s model that fit the award class. These scores are based on the publication’s own rankings, which e reliability data, safety scores, and the consensus of the automotive press to determine a vehicle’s score.
