Mazda Wins Three ‘Best’ Category Awards from AJAC

On January 18, 2018, Mazda Canada Inc. accepted three awards from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) for winning three different categories at the Montreal International Auto Show. Mazda Canada won two awards for the CX-5, which received Best Small Car In Canada For 2018 and Best Small Utility Vehicle In Canada For 2018. Meanwhile, the CX-9 was named Best Large Utility Vehicle In Canada For 2018.

The Canadian Car of the Year awards, presented by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, are the most prestigious automotive awards in the country. In addition, winning such awards are typically very difficult to earn. However, Mazda Canada has won several Canadian Car of the Year awards throughout the years and is no stranger to the AJAC podium.

“We are very proud to accept these awards from Canada’s automotive experts, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. The Mazda3, CX-5, and CX-9 clearly stand out in their respective segments, and each one represents a different, but unified take on the best that Mazda has to offer for the Canadian consumer,” said Mazda Canada President, Masaharu Kondo. “Each of these vehicles features Mazda’s signature dynamic handling characteristics, head-turning looks, and a full suite of safety technology, all combined in a way that our competition can’t beat.”

The AJAC Canadian Car and Utility Vehicle of the Year program awards the most prestigious honours for automobiles in the Canadian automotive landscape and are judged by some of Canada’s top automotive experts. Vehicles are critiqued on a large variety of qualities and must meet several automobile competencies that are critical to the Canadian consumer.
