Back in 1970, Mazda was the latest Japanese automotive company to enter the North American market. In the half-century since, it has certainly carved out its niche within the marketplace. Who could forget the iconic “Zoom Zoom” commercials? One of the only mass market brands to continue offering a dedicated convertible, Mazda is known for building sporty, dependable vehicles in both the sedan and crossover segment in addition to its iconic convertible. If you’re in the market for a pre-owned model, consider shopping for a used Mazda vehicle. We often have a couple for sale right here at Briggs Supercenter in Manhattan, Kansas.
As of the 2023 model year, there is only one sedan on the lineup. The Mazda3 is available as either a traditional sedan or a 5-door hatchback sedan. Both the Mazda6 and Mazda2 were still in production until just a few years ago, with the latter being discontinued in 2015 and the former sticking around until 2021. It’s unlikely that any older sedans make their way through our inventory, but you could see any of these three.
When it comes to crossovers, like most brands on the marketplace these days, there are far more options available. Models in production this year include the NX-30, MX-30, CX-5, CX-50 and CX-9. The CX-3 was in production from 2016 through 2021, while the CX-7 was only on the lineup from 2006 to 2012. With the -30 and -50 models being introduced over the past three years, we suspect the lineup will continue changing.
That brings us, finally, to the legendary Mazda MX-5 Miata. This vehicle has been on the lineup since all the way back in 1990, the longest-running vehicle on the lineup. One of the few dedicated roadsters in the consumer mass market, it has established itself as a popular entry not only into its segment but on the marketplace as a whole. If you want a stylish, affordable convertible… you probably want a Mazda MX-5 Miata.
While it isn’t a brand that we typically have a ton of options for, we do usually see a couple of Mazda models in our online used vehicle inventory. Be sure to check what’s available to see if you like anything, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re looking for something in particular and can’t find it. We’d be happy to help!
