I’m mystified why Mazda isn’t a bigger selling car. Their cars are nearly always at or near the top of just about every “Best …” list out there. They’re relatively cheap, extremely reliable, and most of them get great mileage compared to the other cars in their class. IMO they’re also beautiful and have a coherent design theme running through their whole line of cars.
But I’ve seen claims that, for instance, Toyota Corollas outsell the entire line of Mazdas combined. This despite the fact that the Mazda3 kicks its ass in all the head to head comparisons.
Yeah, yeah, it’s my second Mazda thread in as many days. What can I say except I’ve been inspired by some other threads like the ongoing one about the Lexus.
What are your thoughts about why they’re not higher up on the car pecking order?
