Mazda CX-5 Has Become A Best-Selling Model


 Mazda Canada Inc. (MCI) has  reported its December sales of 3,987 vehicles, representing a decrease of 14.9 percent versus December 2017. Sales for the full 2018 calendar year are 73,869, which is a decrease of 0.3 percent compared to CY2017.

The company said that 2018 was an exciting year for Mazda, with almost all models receiving design updates and new equipment. The all-new Mazda3 is set to make its Canadian debut at the Montreal International Auto Show on January 17th and will be on sale within the first quarter of 2019.


• Taking the sales lead in December, the CX-5 narrowed the CY sales gap to the perennially best-selling Mazda model, the Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback, to less than 140 vehicles. The Mazda3 has easily been the best-selling model in Mazda’s lineup since it’s first full year on sale in 2004, but the CX-5 looks poised to take over in 2019.
