When shopping for a new car, most people want a vehicle that has been highly rated. There are many awards that are presented to vehicles throughout the year, which can help you make a decision as to which car you’re going to choose. Recently, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and 2018 Mazda3 were both chosen as part of Good Housekeeping magazine’s 2018 Best New Car Awards.

2018 Mazda3 named Best Standard Compact

The two Mazda models were chosen out of 100 vehicles to be celebrated by the magazine along with 25 other models as the best of 2018. This is the second time that the Mazda3 has been chosen as a recipient of the Best Standard Compact award, due to its impressive standard features and exciting design. In testing, the drivers found that the 2018 Mazda3 provided plenty of interior space and an easy-to-use infotainment system. Additional benefits include the choice between a sedan or hatchback style, allowing drivers to choose the styling that best fits their needs.

“We were impressed by the exterior and interior styling, and it’s clear their design team worked hard to eliminate as much visual noise as possible.” -Laurie Jenning, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute
