This figure eclipses the previous full-year record of 66,650 set in 2005, making 2007 Mazda's most successful year ever in Australia.

"We're 22 per cent up year on year, we've set new benchmarks for every month of the year, and we've achieved our best annual sales result ever." Mazda Australia managing director Doug Dickson said

The best performers were the Mazda2 and Mazda3 - with a total of 58 light small cars on the Australian market, Mazda's small car duo represented one in every nine sold, equating to a dominant 12 percent market share.

Mazda also plans to release a 40th Anniversary limited edition RX-8, due to hit dealerships next month in the lead up to the 2008 RX-8 reveal next January.
