There is no doubt about the fact that Mazda is having a great year. Recently, four Mazda vehicles have been named by the editors of Kelley Blue Book as standouts in their segments.

In reaction to his brand doing so well on, Robert Davis, senior vice president of Mazda North American Operations, stated:

"Mazdas are known for being fun to drive and high-quality, and the current lineup holds further distinction of being some of the most beautiful cars on the road. Mazda is grateful to receive these accolades from Kelley Blue Book, further highlighting that these vehicles should be on everyone's consideration list."

The best part is that each of these four noteworthy Mazda vehicles can be purchased for at or below $25,000 and at least one of them will fit your driving needs. Which phase of life are you in? There's a Mazda for that.

Your Life in Mazda Vehicles

Whether you are single, married/partnered, have small kids or have grown kids, one of these four highly praised Mazda vehicles will probably be a great option for you to consider.

    • Are you single?
      If you are currently unattached, why not take advantage of your opportunity to own a Mazda MX-5 Miata? has named the 2016 MX-5 Miata as one of their Favorite New-for-2016 Cars, and for good reason. For the money, you probably won't find a better, more fuel efficient sports car that is such a ton of fun to drive. Test drivers have praised its "top-notch" handling, excellent manual transmission and precise steering/braking.
      The Miata only seats two, but it will easily accommodate a date or your dog. And because it is a convertible, you and Susie, Jeff or Fido will be able to feel the wind in your hair or fur as you cruise to the park or beach on a nice day. Your single life will be even more enjoyable when you are turning heads and zipping through traffic in your Mazda MX-5 Miata.


  • Are you recently partnered or married?
    If Jeff or Susie turned out to be "the one," you may want to go ahead and get a slightly bigger car, especially if Fido is also in the picture. And you never know when a tiny person might show up and need a seat. So, enter the Mazda Mazda3. Included in Kelley Blue Book's list of 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 AND their 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000 list, the Mazda3 is a great car to own.
    Reviewers have said that the 2016 Mazda3 offers sportier handling, better fuel economy and a more upscale cabin than most cars in its class. You can go to meet Susie's or Jeff's parents in style, and you'll be able to pick up the dinner tab with all of the money you will be saving on gas. And because the Mazda3 seats five, you'll be all set if your family expands to include a small bundle of joy named Lily or Finn. You'll also be pleased to know that it has earned very good safety ratings.

  • Are you married or partnered with two or three small kids?
    Now that you and Jeff or Susie are now the proud parents of Lily, Finn and Zoe, you may want to upgrade to the Mazda CX-3. This subcompact SUV made it onto both the 10 Most Affordable SUVs of 2016 list on and their 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000 list. Test drivers have noted that the CX-3 is fun to drive, offers outstanding fuel economy and comes with lots of standard features.
    The backseat of the CX-3 may not be the roomiest, but you should be just fine while Lily, Finn and Zoe are still small. And crossovers are really hot right now. You'll be the cool parents with the sporty, yet practical vehicle that all of your neighbors are secretly jealous of. You probably won't even miss your Miata. Okay. Maybe you'll miss your Miata just a little bit.
  • Are you married or partnered with two or three bigger kids?
    Lily, Finn and Zoe have grown quite a bit, so it might be time to take a look at the Mazda CX-5. This compact SUV is featured on Kelley Blue Book's 10 Best All-Wheel Drive Vehicles Under $25,000 list, and most critics have been very impressed by what the CX-5 offers. Among other desirable features, the CX-5 has good legroom in the back seats to accommodate your growing kids.
    Like most Mazda vehicles, the CX-5 has been praised for being fun to drive, with athletic handling and quick performance. And according to EPA estimates, this vehicle offers great fuel economy for its class. With the 2016 CX-5, you will also get straightforward interior tech and a rearview camera. And because you will probably have plenty of sports equipment, school supplies and possibly even band instruments to haul around, you will be pleased to know that the CX-5 has more cargo space than most of its rivals.
  • Are your kids grown and living away from home?
    You can now stop missing your first Mazda. Go and buy yourself an MX-5 Miata. Congratulations. You have officially come full circle in your Mazda life cycle.

So, yes, it may be the case that there is a Mazda vehicle to fit every phase of your driving life. And even if it is just you and Fido and you want it to stay like this, that CX-5 might be nice to own if you and the pooch want to go camping or if Fido just needs more room to stretch out. After all, it is your life and your vehicle, and there really are no rules. Drive whatever suits you best.
