There aren’t too many brands that got three of their vehicles put on Edmund’s Most Popular list of 2015. Mazda was one of those few brands as they had the Mazda3, Mazda CX-5, and CX-9 make the cut. Now, Edmund’s list was broken down by automobile class and the top three from each class were awarded the honor of Most Popular. And the data for this list was collect from Jan 1, 2014, through Oct 31, 2014. Basically, the most searched for vehicles within that timeframe made the list.
So, like previously stated, the Mazda3 made the list and is one of the representatives of the compact car class. The Mazda3 has been proven tops in its class year in and year out. If you’re looking for a compact car then you are probably thinking in terms fuel economy, reliability, and value, and you will get that with just about every compact car. However, with the Mazda3 you’ll get all that plus some extra personality and spunk. With the 3s’ larger 2.5-liter engine (compared to most compact’s 2.0L engines) it can accelerate quicker – going 0-60 in 8.3 seconds, which is faster than the class average. The 2015 Mazda3 also received an “A” rating from Edmunds for its overall distinctive design, drivability, and value.
The next Mazda to make the Most Popular list is the 2015 CX-5. This compact crossover was one of the three most popular in its class. The CX-5 is a joy to drive and is very stylish. It’s for people who don’t need a larger SUV but still need something bigger than a sedan. Something nice about the 2015 Mazda CX-5 is that the top two trim levels have upgraded to keyless entry and ignition. And with two engine options, much like the Mazda3, there are certain things to think about. The 2.0L is extremely fuel efficient; however, you may want the 2.5 if you will be travelling on the highway or with a car full of people. Mazda USA is actually creating competition for itself with the compact crossover CX-3 set to come out in 2016, so be on the lookout for that as yet another option in this class.
Finally, Mazda’s third vehicle to make Edmund’s 2015 Most Popular list is the CX-9. This Mazda hails from the Large Crossover SUV class and joins the GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse as the three most popular in their class. The 2015 CX-9 is like a sports car with an SUV’s body, and Mazda does that on purpose, taking their “Zoom Zoom” mantra to the next level in each of their vehicles. This sporty SUV packs a 3.7L V6 engine under the hood and has three rows of easy access seating that can fit 7 full size adults and their gear comfortably. Also, with the second and third row seats folded down, the 2015 Mazda CX-9 offers up a formidable 101 cubic feet of cargo space.
