A vintage brand, a young dealership

February 20th, 2020 by

One of Mazda’s earliest models, the 1960 R360.

Findlay Mazda opened at the Valley Automall at the start of 2019, and is celebrating its first birthday this month.

A few weeks away from a birthday of its own, the Mazda brand will be 100 years old at the end of the month. In its century of car-making, Mazda has created cars that challenged convention. With icons such as the MX-5 (also known as the Miata) and the rotary engine RX family of cars, it’s easy to see Mazda’s history of innovation.
Being one of the smallest Japanese car brands, Mazda has always worked hard to deliver a product unlike its competitors’. That drive and passion has led to many accolades, including being the first Japanese car brand to win the famed 24 Hours of LeMans, and making the best-selling convertible in automotive history.

With a wealth of choices in the automotive market, customers are researching and comparing vehicles and brands more than ever before. One hundred years have taught Mazda that customers want a car that feels more personal, more responsive, more engaging; a car that makes them feel alive.

The current lineup of Mazda vehicles are not only highlights in their categories, but are made to make the driver feel alive. Engine response, steering responsiveness, braking characteristics, etc. are Mazda’s strong suits, and that attention to the car’s oneness with the driver can be summed up by the Japanese term jinba ittai, meaning “horse and rider as one”.


“It’s a small brand that creates a very personal product,” said Kevin Lopes, Marketing Director of Findlay Mazda. “They are always innovating and creating solid vehicles that are well-received.”
