Mazda scores highly in 2021 driver power consumer survey

Mazda has achieved a strong performance in the 2021 Auto Express Driver Power new-car ownership survey. Now in its twentieth year, the Driver Power survey sees the readers of Auto Express Magazine vote on their cars across 10 categories, assessing areas such as reliability, practicality, handling and performance over a series of 35 questions. One of the most comprehensive and respected new car ownership surveys in the UK, this year Driver Power graded 75 cars from 29 brands.

From this huge sample of UK cars and owners, the Mazda brand finished fourth out of 29 brands and was the highest placed Japanese manufacturer. The Mazda CX-5 was the third most popular car in the survey taking the overall Car of the Year Bronze medal as well as being named Best Mid-Size SUV in the survey. Commenting on the CX-5’s performance, Auto Express Editorial Director, Steve Fowler, said: “according to owners, Mazda’s CX-5 is something of a star. Not only was it the best rated mid-size SUV – the most competitive class in the entire Driver Power survey – but it also topped the exterior category thanks to its stunning design and strong build quality, talents that helped the CX-5 finish third overall in our survey of the 75 best cars on sale today.”

Adding, “led by the CX-5’s exceptional performance, it’s no surprise that Mazda as a brand put in a deeply impressive appearance in our 2021 Driver Power results – finishing fourth behind only Porsche, Tesla and Kia. This result is testament to the all-round ability of Mazda’s model range”.
