2018 Mazda CX-5 Can’t Hold A Candle To Toyota, Nissan!

By  | 

October last month saw Japanese carmakers going on an upswing on the sales front as they all recorded strong growth here in North America. Well, this is with the exception of Mazda, which happens to have the smallest numbers in October.

Mazda only managed to move about 22,000 vehicles here in the US and this is nowhere near what rival makes have achieved. The CX-5 is Mazda’s best performing vehicle so far as it holds about 55% of the overall sales figures but again, this is still far behind the competition.

For a better understanding on this, the CX-5’s sales in October are about one-third of what the Nissan Rogue has achieved. The pressure is piling on Mazda because we fear that when the hype for the new CX-5 goes away, the carmaker may shrink further.

If this goes unaddressed, we won’t be surprised if Mazda is forced to forge a new partnership deal. Otherwise, the carmaker will have to be content with being a small-scale carmaker.

    Mazda is a small car company, only makes 1.6-1.8M vehicles worldwide. They are ok with being a smaller company making better quality vehicle than the mainstream car companies out there. They understand they will never be as big as some other manufacturers and are happy with 2-4% sale increases year over year. Your article is a little misleading….

    They’re a boutique brand that makes quality vehicles with a little Zoom-Zoom in every one.
