2020 Best Vehicle Brand Awards

Mazda6, Mazda Miata MX-5
3 of 11

Best Car Brand: Mazda

The Mazda6 offers many of the same great qualities as its compact companion, but with the added space of a midsize car. You will find more room in the rear seat, yet the added bulk does not detract from the Mazda6’s performance abilities. With an optional turbocharged engine and well-tuned handling, this midsize sedan is one of the most athletic in the segment. 

While both the Mazda3 and Mazda6 are noteworthy for their driving dynamics, the MX-5 Miata is widely held as the benchmark for affordable sports cars when it comes to handling and overall fun factor. The Miata’s small size and zippy powertrain let you fling it through turns, and the convertible top will send the wind whipping through your hair.

The Miata’s sportiness doesn’t mean practicality is totally forgotten, as it also has a user-friendly infotainment system, accommodating seats, and attractive cabin materials that make it a pleasant place to spend time.
