According to February VFACTS figures, Mazda3 found 6,613 new homes (year-to-date) after also topping the small car charts in January, while the CX-7 sold 944 units for the month of February.

The larger CX-9 also saw a healthy start to the year with Mazda delivering 785 units since January 1.

The news also signals an increase in market share for Mazda, who as Australia's top-selling full-line vehicle importer, now holds a year-to-date figure of 8.7 per cent.

"We're just absolutely delighted to see that, for the second month in a row, Mazda3 has outperformed every other small car in the country," said Mazda Australia Managing Director, Mr Doug Dickson."We knew we were on a good wicket when the New Generation Mazda3 was introduced last year, but I must say it's great to see that Australian consumers recognise Mazda3 for the outstanding value for money and stylish package it is."Mazda3's ongoing sales success coupled with a strong month for Mazda CX-7 has really kick-started what I hope will be another fantastic year for Mazda."
