Mazda is the Most Reliable Automotive Brand You Can Buy (and Stylish, too!)

November 24th, 2020 by

When Consumer Reports talks, people listen. So Now Hear This! For the first time ever, Mazda is the overall Most Reliable brand of vehicles, according to the 2020 CR Annual Reliability List.

It matters because Americans are keeping their cars for longer and longer periods of time.


Mazda moved up to the top spot from second, which is where it was ranked last year. And with a score of 83, bested the next best brand, Toyota, by almost 10 points



The Consumer Reports Annual Reliability Survey is based on data gathered from members about their experiences with more than 300,000 vehicles from model years 2000 to 2020. The analysts give an Overall Score based on qualities including road-test performances, owner satisfaction survey results, key safety systems and crash-test results.


“Consumers deserve products that are safe, secure and provide good value. At a time when people are faced with so much uncertainty and misinformation, CR continues to provide people with trusted information rooted in science, evidence and data,” said Marta Tellado, President and CEO of Consumer Reports. “Our annual auto reliability, combined with our comprehensive auto testing, helps to shape a marketplace that puts consumers first.”

The Redesigns & Style

According to the news release announcing the annual results, “The key to Mazda’s success is that it redesigns models conservatively – and has avoided introducing risky new powertrains and infotainment systems. The entire lineup benefits from many shared platforms and components, with only modest changes during redesigns.”


What about style? It’s worth noting that recently announced its “10 Best of 2020” and called out the Mazda CX-5, saying that “this Mazda is full of the reasons that we love cars,” and noting its “sharp styling, handsome interior, and rich paint.” But the editors go on to say that “the driving experience is what elevates it.” Meanwhile, calls the 2020 Mazda CX-30 a “Stylish Small SUV” and says it has “style that’s a cut above most rivals.” And the Detroit Free Press in its review of the CX-30 last June wrote that, “Mazda reestablishes itself as the go-to brand for affordable vehicles that delivery more style and fun than the competition…”


Reliability and style – now that’s a winning combination. We’d love to show you the whole lineup of these wonderful Mazda vehicles. Visit us at Schomp Mazda on Havana in Aurora.
