The 2010 MAZDA3 was today named the Best Mid-Compact Car for value retention by ALG. Additionally, the MAZDA6 sport sedan and the Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV ranked third place in their respective classes. And, in its highest finishing position ever, the Mazda brand was ranked third in predicted resale value, up from sixth position in 2009.
ALG honors vehicles in 19 individual industry segments that they predict will retain the highest percentage of the purchase price after a three-year period. This all-important value retention recognition provides consumers with peace of mind when choosing a new vehicle.
“As one of every three Mazdas sold around the world is a MAZDA3, this award speaks not just to the quality of an individual vehicle, but to the overall strength of the Mazda brand,”
said Jim O’Sullivan, President and CEO, Mazda North American Operations.
“We are pleased to be recognized by ALG for having vehicles that are not only fun to drive, but have some of the highest resale values.”
“The ALG Residual Value Awards are recognized throughout the industry and by consumers as the mark of a healthy brand; winning this award is a testament to an exceptionally strong product and all of us at ALG are pleased to recognize that accomplishment.”
