Mazda Vs the Competition

The last handful of years have seen Mazda create some of the most instantly-memorable, luxurious-looking, and feature-packed cars and SUVs on the market. In terms of their design, standard features, and reliability, vehicles like the Mazda6 and Mazda CX-5 punch far above their weight. Mazda’s focused lineup offers drivers vehicles that solve problems and meet their range without having an overwhelming number of options.

Despite the relatively limited number of models in the Mazda lineup, each one excels at its purpose. The Mazda3 is a reliable and competent compact with plenty of tech. The Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover with bigger ambitions and enough room and convenience features for individuals and families alike. The MX-5 Miata packs more fun/horsepower than any other vehicle on the market. When you choose Mazda, you’re getting more for less.

Like the Miata, the Miata RF is a car built for you to enjoy every mile of the road beneath its stylish wheels. Unlike the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Miata RF features a hard-top roof that lowers mechanically for even greater versatility. Enjoy it with the top down and you’ll be cruising in a stylish and debonair convertible. Put the top back up and it’s one of the sleekest looking coupes available with performance to match.

Mazda CX-5

Mazda’s best-seller is also one of its biggest opportunities to show off. Competing in a class marked by similar designs and predictable feature tiers, the CX-5 shrugs all of that off, preferring instead to offer drivers a surprisingly well-equipped ride that looks great. The Mazda CX-5 is handsome and stylish, looking to the luxury brands as its peers, rather than their economy platform mates.
