The All-New Mazda3 has been awarded the 2020 World Car Design of the Year for having the best design among all the contending cars for the 2020 World Car Awards season. The Mazda 3 was selected by 86 jurors from 24 countries after being shortlisted as a top three finalist last March.
“The new Mazda3 minimalist and sophisticated evolved-KODO design language of ‘beauty through subtraction’ is the foundation for its function and purpose. We are proud to share with our customers the all-new Mazda3, a car so highly regarded around the world for pushing the boundaries of aesthetics, quality of finish, class, and style,” says Steven Tan, president and CEO of Mazda Philippines. “To be praised by an elite panel of design icons and automotive journalists in the World Car Awards truly says volume about the Mazda3’s innate beauty and superior design. And to be recognized as the winner of the 2020 World Car Design of the Year title against equally exquisite cars shows the unanimous praise for Mazda’s ‘Car As Art’ Design philosophy.”
The Mazda3 was also part of this year’s Top Three finalists for the World Car of the Year along with the all-new Mazda CX-30 Crossover. This was also the second time Mazda was awarded the World Car Design of the Year trophy after the MX-5 roadster won both the World Car of the Year as well as the World Car Design of the Year title in 2016.
“Ultimately, it is our clients who are the true winners with every Mazda they drive. Because of this award, they can stand high and fully appreciate the choice they made, the same choice that will serve them admirably for the years to come,”adds Tan.
Tha Mazda3 is the most popular vehicle in the Mazda Philippines portfolio. More than 6 million units of the vehicle have been sold globally since 2003, with more than 19,000 in the Philippines. The Mazda3 had always pushed the boundaries for design innovation, engineering and craftsmanship for the brand. It was the first vehicle in Mazda’s portfolio to adopt the more mature Evolved Kodo design interpretation that adopts the simplicity and purity of Japanese aesthetic. The Mazda3 continues to adopt a human-centric design philosophy that maximizes human balance and connectivity making it so inviting and simply a joy to drive.
With recent significant recognitions such as the prestigious 2019 Red Dot: Best of the Best Design Award, the 2020 Canadian Car of the Year, the 2020 China Car of the Year, the 2020 Thailand Car of the Year, the all-new Mazda3 continues with the nameplate’s proven record for groundbreaking design, class-above build quality, outstanding performance and unassailable value.
