Mazda received a well-deserved and prestigious honour in March 2021 when Protégez-Vous magazine awarded four "Best of 2021" prizes to models marketed by Mazda.
This recognition proves once again how well the company's vehicles meet the needs of Quebec consumers.

Here is an overview of the four winners with a few words on what makes them so popular.
Let's start our tour with the car that seduced the Quebec public when it first hit the market in 2004, the Mazda3. Over the years, the Mazda3 has been constantly improved by its creator, so much so that today it presents itself with a level of refinement and maturity that is absolutely impressive.
Available as a sedan or a hatchback, the Mazda3 offers a high-quality interior where the rigorous assembly process has become an industry standard. The visual presentation is spot on and the brand's new multimedia system adds a very interesting touch of user-friendliness to the onboard experience.
The driving position is perfect and the car's handling puts a smile on your face at every turn. The comfort, handling, balance and feeling of connection with the road are beyond compare. And what can I say about the new turbocharged version that's on the menu this year; it's a pure delight.
Truly, the Mazda3 has never been more interesting... and attractive.
The Mazda CX-3 is more recent than the Mazda3, yet the effect it had on the market at its debut is comparable. In concrete terms, people flocked to the CX-3 because its size filled a need. Some saw it as an upgraded Mazda3 with all-wheel drive, others as a more compact variant of the CX-5, but all saw it as a solution and a very interesting compromise.
Behind the wheel, this model offers the agility of a car, but with an element that many consumers appreciate, a slightly more commanding driving position. And that's not to mention its eye-catching and decidedly sporty styling.
And at the pump, you get by admirably thanks to the Skyactiv approach; the 2.0 L 4-cylinder is frugal as hell, as evidenced by its 7.0 and 7.4 L/100 km highway ratings, depending on whether you're guiding the destiny of a two- or four-wheel-drive model.
With the Mazda CX-30, introduced last year, Mazda hit another home run. In fact, the company has once again proven how much it wants to meet consumers' needs by offering another subcompact-sized model, but this time a bit roomier than the CX-3. Located below the CX-5 in the lineup, it offers more space than the CX-3, but is still a very dynamic model on the road due to its relatively small size.
Mechanically, it offers the consumer choices with no less than three engines; two naturally aspirated 4-cylinder units (2.0 and 2.5 litres), as well as a 2.5-litre turbo 4-cylinder.
Finally, the fourth winner needs no introduction. The Mazda CX-5 is the most popular SUV in the family and for good reason. It offers a perfect size, plenty of space, a family-friendly place to be, and fun and inspired driving experience. Again, the engine choices are interesting with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder, a 2.5-litre turbo 4-cylinder, as well as a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine, also a 4-cylinder.
And the beauty of it all with these vehicles is that you can go with confidence. Last year, Consumer Reports magazine ranked Mazda at the top of the list of manufacturers for reliability. Really, there's a lot to be proud of... and reassured about.
