Mazda’s CX-5 and MX-5 Miata Drive Brand to Best March Sales Since 2007

04/10/2014 (press release: CambridgePRGroup) // Shrewsbury, N.J. // Schwartz Mazda

Two similarly named vehicles with very different target buyers helped drive Mazda to its best March sales since 2007 last month. The Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV and Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster each saw double-digit sales increases compared to March 2013, boosting the automaker’s overall sales to 34,903 units for a 9 percent rise year-over-year.

Launched just over two years ago as the first vehicle to fully incorporate Mazda’s fuel-saving SKYACTIV technologies, the 35-mpg-highway CX-5 had its best sales month yet in March. More than 11,800 CX-5 models found new homes in the United States last month, a 67 percent increase over March 2013. Meanwhile, the iconic Mazda MX-5 Miata achieved its best March performance since 2009, with its sales rising by 31 percent year-over-year.

“The CX-5 and MX-5 Miata are the most exciting designs we’ve ever seen from Mazda, each offering more driving fun per dollar than their competition,” said Jon Schwartz, owner of Schwartz Mazda, a New Jersey Mazda dealer in Shrewsbury. “The overall quality of the Mazda brand also remains excellent — our repair shop is like a ghost town, even as our showroom floor is busier than ever.”

Currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of its global debut at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989, the Mazda MX-5 Miata will be the center of attention at the New York International Auto Show later this month. Starting on April 18, 15 MX-5 Miata vehicles will be on display at the show, including current and past production models, auto-show concepts and racecars. The showcase comes as the automotive press continues to speculate about the next-generation MX-5 Miata that is expected to debut within the next year, with rumors of the sports car receiving SKYACTIV-G engines similar to those found on the current CX-5, Mazda3 and Mazda6.
