2021 Mazda new cars

Mazda closely reflects the overall market in Australia, given its high proportion of private buyers, and 2020 was a tough year.

Mazda is an interesting case study in Australia, in that it has the highest percentage of private customers of any of the top ten mainstream brands.

That's probably why its downturn of 15.8 percent lines up so closely to an overall 16 percent drop for the market. Mazda's figures generally closely resemble that of the market as a whole more so than any other brand.

Some of Mazda's sales pain is undoubtedly related to price rises across the board. The CX-30 arrived early in 2020 and was slow to take off, while Mazda 3 sales hit the brakes as Australians continued to rush to SUV segments.

Favourites like CX-3 and CX-5 continued to track well in our market. An update to perennial favourites, the MX-5 and CX-9, should also bolster the brand from the start of 2021
