2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Car Brand

The Best Vehicle Brand awards honor the best brands for cars, SUVs, luxury vehicles and trucks.

As stated on cars.usnews.com:

Mazda wins its sixth consecutive Best Car Brand award thanks to its superb performance and upscale interiors. The Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5 Miata are all ranked highly in their respective classes.

The Mazda3 was last redesigned in the 2019 model year and is now our top-ranked compact car. Both the manual and the six speed automatic transmission provide smooth shifts. The Mazda3 also has sharp steering and athletic handling, which injects some fun into the daily commute. Although front-wheel drive is standard on the Mazda3, all-wheel drive is available, which is uncommon in its class.

The Mazda3 is available as both a sedan and a hatchback. If you need more room for luggage, the available hatchback has plenty of cargo space and also comes with folding rear seats. Regardless of which body style you choose, the Mazda3's cabin contains premium materials, plenty of space in the front row, and an easy-to-use infotainment system.

Another option is the Mazda6, which performs just as well as the Mazda3, but gets the enhanced cargo space of a midsize car. In addition, the interior is filled with premium materials and the seats are comfortable. On the road, the optional turbocharged engine and agile handling make the Mazda6 one of the most thrilling rides in the segment.

If you're looking for something even sportier, the MX-5 Miata has precise handling and a four-cylinder engine that helps it accelerate quickly. For affordable sports cars, this is one of the most agile. If you want a comfy and fun convertible, the Miata is the perfect car.  

The Miata's cabin, while small, has abundant soft-touch materials and an intuitive infotainment system. It also comes with several standard safety features including automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.

Mazda's reputation as a performance brand isn't just because the Mazda3 and Mazda6 are arguably the most fun-to-drive cars in their segments. You can also look at the Mazda CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 SUVs, and realize they're the most driver-centric in their competitive sets as well.
