Mazda Wins Prestigious “2014 5-year Cost to Own Award”
With many accolades coming in recently for various Mazda models, it should come as no surprise Mazda’s entire brand has just received the very coveted, “2014 5-Year Cost to Own Award,” from Kelley Blue Book for overall brand which is the highest and most prestigious award KBB gives out. This is the second year in a row Mazda has won this award which is given out to the brand with the lowest cost of ownership over a five year period. This is just further validation for a brand committed to producing the best cars with the best value for its customers.
“Hard work and dedication to building the best possible vehicles has brought Mazda to its second consecutive year earning the 5-year Cost to Own Award for the overall Mazda brand,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “Mazda’s new generation of vehicles continue to perform very well against the competition, not only with driving dynamics and fit and finish, but fuel economy and overall cost of ownership, and this award is additional proof of that.”
“New-car shoppers naturally want to know how much a car will cost upfront; however, they also should consider what vehicles will save them money down the road,” said Dan Ingle, vice president of vehicle valuations for Kelley Blue Book. “Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own information evaluates the other out-of-pocket expenses drivers will incur in the first five years and Mazda tops the list among all non-luxury brands.”
KBB.com cites Mazda’s ability to offer consumers a low Kelley Blue Book® Fair Purchase Price, excellent fuel economy thanks to SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, low insurance costs and excellent residual values, which help boost consumer confidence when buying a Mazda. Thanks to these factors, Mazda is able to offer consumers an ownership experience that is both enjoyable and affordable, two things that don’t always accompany each other. Best of all, the 2014 5-Year Cost to Own Award for Mazda means that this experience can be had across multiple car lines in the Mazda brand, including Mazda3, Mazda6, and CX-5.
