Both the 2018 Mazda3 and the 2018 Mazda CX-5 have been singled out for distinction in Good Housekeeping magazine’s 2018 Best New Car Awards. The Mazda3 took the top spot in the standard compact category for the second year in a row. The Mazda CX-5 was the winner in the compact crossover SUV category. Both victories can be attributed to the incredible value delivered by Mazda vehicles. “The Mazda vehicles really stood out when you look at the number of features you get for the price point,” said Laurie Jennings, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute. She also highlighted the exterior and interior styling, as well as the quiet cabin atmosphere in these vehicles.

The 2018 Mazda3 features sport seats that have been contoured to mold to the body, providing incredible comfort for drivers and passengers. It’s a difference you can feel, especially on long commutes and road trips. Mazda engineers paid careful attention to every inch of the design of this vehicle, and it shows. The perforations in the seats have been made larger, while the distances between them have been decreased. Not only do these changes make the seats softer and more breathable, they also absorb road noise. If this much thought went into the seats, just think what else the Mazda3 has in store.

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 has been crafted with the same care and attention to detail. The interior is expansive and intuitive, with every element—from door handles to dashboard controls—thoughtfully laid out and perfectly positioned. During test drives here at Liberty Mazda, drivers who’ve never been behind the wheel of a Mazda vehicle before feel like they’ve been driving the 2018 Mazda CX-5 for years.
