Mazda 3 Gets Scottish Best Family Car Awards

Mazda is getting more popular in Scotland, as it won Best Family Car category at The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) Scottish Car of the Year Awards 2009 for the fifth consecutive year.

Among the weird and wonderful new arrivals in the family car category the all-new Mazda3 stood out ahead of its rivals and pushed the boundaries in each criterion,” said the jury.

It was a new version of an old favorite, the all-new Mazda3, which our panel rated ahead of the rest. It quickly emerged that this was a car which builds on its predecessor's proven quality while adding more style and more driving pleasure. Its massively powerful new diesel engine has greater performance with maximum economy. It is no wonder that the all-new Mazda3 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to families making an informed choice regarding their car purchase,” said Bill Caven, President of the ASMW.

The competition in the family category was serious, as it included names like Volkswagen Golf or Skoda Yeti. In order to purchase a Mazda 3, you have to get at least £13,500 from your bank account.

The award was received by Mazda UK's managing director Jeremy Thomson, who added: “We are truly delighted that the all-new Mazda3 has been named Scottish Car of the Year’s ‘Best Family Car’. This award is further confirmation why the Mazda3 is one of the most popular Mazda models; it continues to attract family buyers thanks to its high levels of comfort both visually and technically, significant reductions in CO2 and fuel consumption. In many ways the all-new Mazda3 is a ‘baby Mazda6’ bringing the elegant excitement of that model’s distinctive lines to the small family car sector.
