Mazda CX-5 scoops international award

03 December 2012

Mazda has been bestowed with yet another accolade after landing an international award at a recent ceremony.

The manufacturer’s CX-5 model has been named the 2012/13 Car of the Year Japan following a verdict from a committee which put the SUV above all of its counterparts in the poll.

Mazda’s vehicle was the first of its kind to be given the full range of the company’s SKYACTIV technologies which include new engines, body, transmissions and chassis to its workings.

Kiyoshi Fujiwara, executive officer at Mazda, said: “Spurred on by this honour, we will continue to dedicate ourselves to the task of crafting cars that only Mazda can, in order to continue winning the support of our fans and customers into the future.”

The award follows on from the company’s MX-5 being awarded with the UK’s most reliable car by consumer group Which? and it carries on Mazda’s strong tradition within these areas.
