Mazda Named Best Car Brand of 2018

With an award-winning lineup including vehicles like the Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5 Miata, Mazda has positioned itself to crush the competition—and critics have taken notice. In fact, U.S. News & World Report recently named Mazda the Best Car Brand of 2018. The automaker is no stranger to this recognition; in fact, 2018 marks the third year in a row that Mazda has claimed this fiercely coveted title.

Why has Mazda won this distinction for three years running? Managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars, Jamie Page Deaton, seems to think it is the performance angle that the manufacturer has taken with its models, including its sporty handling. Deaton also points to the quality of the interiors of Mazda models, especially the Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5 Miata—without sacrificing the brand’s characteristically low prices. Specifically, Deaton highlighted the Mazda3 model’s efficiency and easy-to-use infotainment system.

So how was Mazda chosen scientifically? U.S. News & World Report editors looked at each brand’s lineup of cars only (which excluded trucks, SUVs, etc.), and averaged their scores, which are based on reliability data, safety testing, and critical reviews. Mazda came out with the top scores once again.
