Dubai, 2 March 2014 – Mazda, the leading Japanese car manufacturer, landed yet two new awards last week at the Wheels Car of the Year Awards 2014. Mazda’s flagship star, and its all-new award-winning Mazda 6, was crowned Best Saloon Car of the Year 2014. The all-new Mazda CX-5 also won its share of fame and was named Best Crossover Car of the Year 2014. Both awards were received by Galadari Automobiles, sole distributor of Mazda cars in the UAE, at the event that took place last Wednesday at the Ritz-Carlton Jumeira Beach Residence in Dubai.
“We are very proud that our Mazda 6 and Mazda CX-5 models have won Best Saloon Car and Best Crossover Car of the Year. Being the only Japanese manufacturer receiving awards at the event is further proof of how great our Mazda cars are. With the newest manifestation of the ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme, these cars are destined to turn heads,” stated Ewan Ramsay, General Manager of Galadari Automobiles.
“The ultra-efficient SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY underneath leaves no concessions to performance or fuel economy. All these are but some of the great features that contribute to Mazda cars winning awards both locally and internationally,” added Ramsay.
Mazda 6 was shortlisted as a finalist in the “World Car Design of the Year” Award 2013 alongside Aston Martin Rapide and Jaguar F-Type. The car was also selected as winner of Best Medium/Large Size Family Car with impressively low economy and CO2 emission figures in the UAE winning against 25 other cars in the same category. Mazda CX-5 also had its share of awards being selected as “Car of the Year” in Japan.
