Mazda vs the Competition

Why Buy Mazda instead of Other Manufacturers like Honda, Toyota, Ford, Subaru, or VW?

While the Mazda brand doesn't enjoy nearly as much chatter in Western Mass as giants like Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Nissan, Ford, and Chevy do, it can still hold its own in an ever-increasingly competitive market of effective and practical sedans and capable AWD crossovers; perfect for drivers who want a great daily commuter.

A Truly Unique Brand

Because Mazda Motor Company is one of the few automakers in the world that operates independently--they aren't owned by another, larger automaker--they don't have quite the cash to throw around on advertisements or commercial marketing. What they do have, though, is the unique freedom to create the exact style, performance, and engineering that they want; it's where Mazda's SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY came from, it's how the sharp and gorgeous new design language came about, and it's why so many drivers choose new Mazda cars and SUVs over the competition.
