Four Mazda Vehicles Named 2017 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buys

Four Mazda vehicles took top honors in their respective categories on the Consumer Guide® Automotive 2017 Best Buys list. A Best Buy represents the finest balance of attributes and value in its class, according to the editorial team at Consumer Guide® Automotive. The following vehicles were recognized as Best Buys in their respective categories:

  • 2017 Mazda3 – Compact Car Class Winner
  • 2017 Mazda6 – Midsize Car Class Winner
  • 2017 Mazda CX-3 – Subcompact Crossover/SUV Class Winner
  • 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata – Sporty/Performance Class Winner

All Best Buy vehicles were evaluated on price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records and resale value.

Consumer Guide Automotive test drives more than 150 models a year to pick the top performing vehicle in each class and names the highest ranking vehicles as Best Buys. According to Consumer Guide® Automotive, “a vehicle does not become a Best Buy solely on objective ratings. It also has to distinguish itself as being a good dollar value compared to others in the class.” For more information on the Consumer Guide® Automotive 2017 Best Buys, visit
