  • CX-30 also saw full-year sales rise significantly, besting 2022 by a full 56.6 percent.
  • MX-5 sales enjoyed a resurgence in 2022, leading to the second-best annual sales total in the past 15 years.

  • Over the summer we held the very first crash test of 2024 CX-90 in the U.S., earning it IIHS’s top-tier award, 2023 TOP SAFETY PICK+.
  • As the year came to a close, improved pedestrian crash avoidance in 2024 Mazda3, Mazda3 Sport, and CX-30 earned them upgrades from 2023 TOP SAFETY PICK to TOP SAFETY PICK+ (when equipped with optional front crash prevention).
  • Leading into the holidays, Mazda Canada built on our past two years of community impact initiatives, pledging up to $1,000,000 to support and celebrate “Rising Legends”; Canadian youth and youth organizations who are working hard to improve their communities.
