About This Quiz

Mazda sometimes becomes lost among the Chevys, Fords and BMWs of the world. But with a long-running tradition of creating long-lasting and attractive vehicles, Mazda has a large following of devoted drivers. 

Mazda was founded in Japan during the 1920s with the production of three-wheeled trucks. Previously known as Toyo Kogyo, the company manufactured everything from machine tools, weapons for WWII and of course automobiles. While the name Mazda had already been in use for decades, the company officially adopted its name in 1984. 

From small cars to sporty coupes, large sedans and pickup trucks, Mazda has had a vast array of options and was frequently among the industry's top manufacturers.
