Autobytel.com’s First Annual Buyer’s Choice Awards Recognize Mazda Models

January 25th, 2017 by

2016 Mazda CX5 RedAutobytel.com just conducted their first Annual Buyer’s Choice Awards, and it’s safe to say that Mazda leads the way. With three Mazda cars and crossover SUVs among their Most-Researched Vehicles, it’s clear that the estimated 8 million people who use the site are feverishly interested in the current Mazda lineup.

The Autobytel.com Buyer’s Choice Awards

In order to determine their Most-Researched Vehicles list, the team over at Autobytel.com took data from October 2015 to October 2016, with the search habits of approximately 8 million shoppers taken into account.

In the words of Jeff Coats, president and CEO of Autobytel, Inc., “This is an exceptional award because it represents the vehicles that are most actively researched and requested to purchase.”

Mazda landed three vehicles on the prestigious inaugural list:

  • Most-Researched Convertible: Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • Most-Researched Small SUV and Overall SUV Winner: Mazda CX-5
  • Most-Researched Large SUV: Mazda CX-9

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

It’s very hard not to fall in love with the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Positioned low to the ground and boasting a total weight of just 2,332 pounds, it seems to flow around corners and act with the agility of a born athlete. The revolutionary SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY powertrain produces 155 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, and comes paired with a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2016 Mazda CX-5

The new Mazda CX-5 is already a legend. This mold-breaking crossover manages to combine winning driving dynamics with phenomenal efficiency ratings like no other model on the market, all while delivering plenty of interior space for passengers and cargo alike. New features for 2016 include adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and LED headlights.

The 2016 Mazda CX-9

Even with three rows of seating and space for up to 71.2 cubic feet of cargo, Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy still bestows upon the new Mazda CX-9 a sleek sense of prestige. An engine that produces 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque provides power to play with, and the available rosewood trim with red leather upholstery takes you to the cutting edge of luxury.
