Number 1: Mazda

Mazda's cars are the most fuel efficient on American roads and they spew the fewest pollutants, according to a pair of new federal reports. And it looks like it's going to stay that way.

In 2014, the company's adjusted fuel economy was 29.4 miles per gallon, best of any automaker. It's an accomplishment in and of itself, but even more notable because Mazda has no hybrid or electric models in its lineup. Year over year, Mazda's fuel economy improved by 1.3 mpg. Only BMW had a better year-over-year improvement at 1.9 MPG. Overall, the nation's fuel economy stagnated year over year.

Asian automakers dominated this year's list of most efficient automakers, which was included in the annual "Fuel Economy Trends" report issued by the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday.

Though numbers for 2015 are only preliminary Mazda is projected to retain its fuel-efficiency title the next time around. The company, with US operations based in Irvine, California, may break new ground, when the '15 numbers are finalized. Its vehicles are expected to average 30.1 MPG for the year, and the company will be the first manufacturer to break the 30-MPG threshold. When it comes to CO2 emissions, the company's cars average 302 grams per mile in 2014, and that's expected to improve by 6 grams per mile in 2015 data. Both are industry-leading figures.

On the flip side, Detroit's Big Three lead the list of most thirsty vehicles. It's important to remember the Big Three's immensely popular pickup trucks are an albatross of sorts in the EPA's evaluation, as they drag down the manufacturer averages. This is something some smaller automakers like Mazda don't need to worry about.

It's perhaps also important to remember the numbers are a snapshot of where the automakers essentially were a year ago, not where they're headed. Ford may languish near the bottom in this report, but Christopher Grundler, director of the EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality singled out the company for its responsiveness in pursuing improvements in light of tightening government standards.

Grundler said the light-weighted aluminum F-150 pickup was outperforming its targets by such a wide margin it was already meeting 2019 standards. One iteration of the popular pickup that contains a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine is already meeting 2024 federal standards. "Our policy is creating incentives for carmakers to invest and bring (technology) forward faster than they ordinarily would," he said. The Ford F-150 is "an amazing story of innovation, and if you do regulation right, this is what you can achieve."

More broadly, Grundler pointed toward Ford's announcement that it would invest $4.5 billion in electric cars over the next five years to bring 13 new EVs to the market as another sign the automaker had been adept in mixing tightening standards with new technology. "Ford is not only saying the right things, they're putting money where their mouth is," he said.

What about Volkswagen?

In evaluating the manufacturers' head-to-head results, the EPA left Volkswagen out of this year's rankings because of the ongoing investigation into the company's emissions cheating. For preliminary 2015 numbers, VW recorded 26.7 MPG and 329 g/mi - but those numbers are based on data submitted by Volkswagen before the diesel scandal broke. Those numbers won't change, at least officially, until the EPA investigation is completed.

2016 Mazda CX-3 named AJAC's Best New SUV / CUV (under $35,000)



RICHMOND HILL, ON, Nov. 26, 2015 /CNW/ - At a press conference in Toronto yesterday, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) named the 2016 Mazda CX-3 as the Best New SUV / CUV (under $35,000) for 2016. Other entries in the category were the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Mitsubishi Outlander, and Fiat 500X.

The CX-3 scored top marks for styling/appearance in both exterior and interior, quality, NVH, safety and convenience/entertainment features. In typical Mazda style, the CX-3 also received top scores for engine smoothness and throttle response, steering/handling, brake feel, and ride comfort.

"We are honoured to receive this award, and we'd like to thank the AJAC members who voted for the CX-3 as the best new vehicle in this segment," said Kory Koreeda, President, Mazda Canada. "The compact crossover segment is one of the most important segments to be in right now, and the CX-3 creates an unbeatable value proposition for Canadian consumers with its combination of KODO design, SKYACTIV Technology, i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology, and i-ACTIV AWD."

This year at the annual TestFest event, more than 70 Canadian automotive journalists drove vehicles in their categories back-to-back on the same day and on the same roads, which allowed them to make accurate comparisons. Each vehicle is given scores for eighteen different parameters that are adjusted for segment significance and pricing to create a fair base of comparison in each category.

The Mazda CX-3 is now an eligible finalist for the Canadian SUV / CUV of the year award, which will be announced at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on February 11, 2016.

CX-5 & Mazda 6 with "Superior" Safety Ratings!


WASHINGTON, DCAug. 26, 2015 /CNW/ - The 2016 Mazda CX-5 and Mazda6 each received a "Superior" safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in its latest evaluation of crash prevention systems.

The CX-5 and Mazda6 were among 19 new models that were rated by the IIHS in their third round of front crash prevention systems testing, out of which 14 were rated "Superior". Vehicles that offer front crash prevention systems are rated by IIHS as "Basic", "Advanced", or "Superior" based on whether they have autobraking, and if so, how effective it is. Out of the 14 vehicles that received the Superior rating, the CX-5 and Mazda6 join a small group of 4 non-luxury vehicles that offer this crash prevention technology.

Front crash prevention systems operate using a variety of sensors such as cameras, radars, or lasers to detect vehicles or other obstructions, and automatically apply the vehicle's brakes if the driver does not react in time. These systems can help drivers to avoid or minimize the effects of a front-to-rear crash, which is already evidenced by insurance data that shows lower rates of claims for vehicles equipped with these systems.

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 and Mazda6 can both be equipped with Mazda's i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies, an umbrella term covering a series of advanced safety features developed in line with Mazda Proactive Safety, which make use of detection devices such as milliwave radars and cameras. They include active safety technologies that support safe driving by helping the driver to recognize potential hazards and pre-crash safety technologies that help to avert collisions or reduce their severity in situations where they cannot be avoided.

The 2016 CX-5 GS model includes Mazda's advanced Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) as standard equipment, which helps detect vehicles approaching from the blind spot areas at the sides and rear. BSM also incorporates Mazda's Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) function, which alerts the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side as the driver backs up.

The CX-5 GT also offers optional Smart Brake Support (SBS), which helps avoid frontal collisions or minimize damage when travelling mid- to high-speed by automatically braking when the vehicle senses an emergency ahead, and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), which automatically controls the vehicle speed to maintain the safe following distance in accordance with the target speed set by the driver. MSRP on CX-5 starts at $22,995.

The 2016 Mazda6 offers a wide variety of advanced safety technologies and further strengthens safety performance. Mazda6 and its advanced safety technologies deliver greater driving pleasure and peace of mind, while adding further polish to the value offered by Mazda's flagship model. Mazda6 GS models come standard with Mazda's advanced Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) function. The Mazda6 GT's optional Technology package adds Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW) and Smart Brake Support (SBS), among a long list of other safety-enhancing features. Mazda6 MSRP begins from $24,695.
