“An absolute blast. Never fails to entertain, no matter what type of journey you are doing. It's very thirsty, although no worse than expected, and handles superbly.”

“Great Driving Experience, expensive on fuel but looks great.”
Mr Tony Bowyer - Kent
Manufacturer Verdict (Position - 5th)
A brilliant top five position for one of Japan's top firms. Coming under the Ford umbrella, Mazda has finished a full 15 places ahead of its parent firm. Even more satisfying is that the one place gained in our chart has been at the expense of premium brand BMW. With a broad range and plenty of new models on the horizon, Mazda will be hoping to continue the upward trend in 2008.
