“Small, stylish, fuel-efficient – those are the buzz-words of the car business these days,” said Jim O’Sullivan, President and CEO, MNAO.  “As always, customers want the right vehicle at the right price, and never has this been so true as today, as MAZDA5 and MAZDA3 sales are proving.”

Leading the way yet again, the MAZDA5multi-activity vehicle posted a 29.2 percent increase versus last June, with 1,416 units sold.  Redesigned for 2008, the MAZDA5is a spirited vehicle that targets a very specific driver, with three rows, room for six passengers and up to 28 mpg (highway).  Year-to-date, MAZDA5 sales are up 44.1 percent.

MAZDA3 also had a great month, recording its best June sales ever, up 8.9 percent with sales of 12,346.

Additionally, Mazda Motor de Mexico (MMdM) celebrated its best-ever June with sales of 1,586 vehicles, up 30 percent versus last year.  MAZDA3 5-door and MAZDA6 both had their best sales month ever.  On a year-to-date basis, MMdM reported 9,961 total sales, accounting for a 34 percent increase.
