MAZDA AUSTRALIA

Mazda is synonymous with youthful, dynamic and appealing cars, and has grown to become one of Australia's most desirable vehicle brands.

It is also widely recognised for its commitment to engine and drivetrain technology, seen in its highly efficient and potent SkyActiv range of engines - both petrol and diesel - and SkyActiv transmissions.

With a range of zesty, but frugal products, Mazda has captured the imagination of Australian buyers with its sharply styled hatches, sedans, SUVs and the awarded BT-50 ute, as well as the iconic classic MX-5 roadster. Sales of its sexy 2, 3 and 6 passenger cars, the top-selling CX-5 SUV, CX-3 and family-friendly CX-9, see Mazda now holding number two position in the Australian market.
