About Mazda

In 1970, Mazda brought its innovative styling and technology the American public with the introduction of the Mazda R-100 coupe. With its arrival, Mazda established its first U.S. facility near Seattle, Washington. Since then, Mazda’s U.S. product line-up has grown to include award-winning compact- and mid-sized passenger  cars, a multi-activity vehicle, sporty crossover SUVs and the world’s best-selling roadster, the MX-5 Miata.

Headquartered in Hiroshima, Japan, and started in 1931, Mazda has made its mark in the automotive market by creating cars that are stylish, insightful and spirited, as well as affordable, fun to drive all while maximizing fuel efficiency.

In December, 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noted in their most recent Light Duty Fuel Economy Trends report that Mazda Motor Corporation is the most fuel-efficient auto manufacturer in the U.S.  With the highest fleet-wide adjusted fuel economy performance of 27.1 miles per gallon (MPG), and the lowest CO2 emissions of 328, Mazda led the chart for model year (MY) 2012. 

Mazda's unique SKYACTIV®[1] TECHNOLOGY has made this level of efficiency possible.  SKYACTIV is a suite of component and engineering technologies that incorporate ultra-high compression ratio gasoline engines, super-efficient manual and automatic transmissions, lightweight chassis and body components, reduced rolling resistance and low-drag body styling.

Mazda's SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY brought the company to the forefront of fuel efficiency through such vehicles as the all-new 2014 Mazda3, the 2014 Mazda6, and the 2014 CX-5. Mazda3 reaches near best-in-class fuel economy with 41 highway MPG when equipped with the i-ELOOP energy regeneration system. Mazda6 equipped with i-ELOOP achieves class- leading fuel economy with 40 highway MPG. At 35 MPG, CX-5 still retains the title of the highest highway MPG of any SUV in North America, including hybrids.
