Mazda picks up award

Fri, 20 Jun 2008
Mazda has been named Best Carmaker at the annual Which? Awards.

Taking the title given to Toyota last year, Mazda also saw off competition from runners-up Audi, BMW, Lexus and Honda.

Racing legend Sir Stirling Moss OBE presented the award at the ceremony at the British Museum to Mazda managing director Rob Lindley.

The firm was praised for its "blend of excellent value for money, reliability and innovation".

New launches Mazda2 supermini and Mazda6 family car were also lauded.

Mr Lindley said the company had achieved "record sales" in the UK last year and that the brand was one that "consumers can trust".

Which? Chief executive Peter Vicary-Smith said the day's winners "truly represent the best of the best in UK products and services".

Mazda produces nearly 1.3 million vehicles for worldwide sales in 2007, most of which were produced at Japanese plants.

Other Which? winners included Panasonic for best audiovisual brand, Waitrose for best high street retailer and for best online retailer.
