Contributing Factors

So, the next question on everyone’s mind is: “just what was it what sparked such an incredible month for Mazda sales?” Well, the Mazda CX-5 has become an overwhelmingly popular choice of late, featuring its sleek styling, fuel sipping engine, and sporty driving experience. Delivering 7,825 models to customers in the month of July, the CX-5 represents an 86 percent year-over-year increase. However, the all-new 2014 Mazda6 cruises in on top in terms of improvement, boasting a year-over-year increase of 167.4 percent by selling 3,447 vehicles.

The Mazda CX-9 family-mobile saw its best July since 2011, rolling in with its sporty 3.7L V6 engine that cranks out 273 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque while able to seat 7 passengers. This snappy crossover saw 2,084 models sold in July, representing an increase of 6.2 percent year-over-year. On the other hand, those seeking a roadster ride for two opted for the Mazda MX-5 Miata, which hit a 12.4 year-over-year increase. Standing tall on its reputation as one of the best roadsters ever built, the MX-5 Miata offers a truly fun-to-drive ride with faultless steering, intuitive handling, and an affordable price tag. This favorite in the Mazda lineup sold 663 vehicles in July, a record best since 2010.

Vehicles equipped with Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology also saw a big July, accounting for 71 percent of the record July sales. Bringing fuel efficiency and performance together, Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology reduces fuel consumption and emissions. This innovative technology can be found onboard in select Mazda3 models as well as the Mazda CX-5 and the Mazda6, all of which set record setting July sales.
