“The entire Mazda Group is united by single-minded desire to deliver our customers driving pleasure. That’s why we take on so many challenges,” said Mazda President and CEO Masamichi Kogai. “Those efforts have paid off, and we have been able to exceed the three million-unit mark because our new-generation models have proven so popular with customers all over the world.”
Through redesigns and adding new vehicles, Mazda has gradually expanded this lineup of KODO- and SKYACTIV-infused vehicles, the latest of which is the all-new CX-9, which the company revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show (and only a few days after some anonymous source leaked images of the SUV).
