If you are shopping for a car, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by your options. There’s a lot of auto manufacturers out there, and nearly all of them make cars, but what brand makes the best cars for 2018? U.S. News & World Report did the legwork and came up with an answer.
Who won U.S. News & World Report’s Best Car Brand for 2018?
The results are in, and the best car brand is Mazda! This is not a new feeling for Mazda either, as this is the third year in a row that they have earned this honor. These awards are given based on a combination of a number of factors including safety scores, reliability data, and a consensus among the automotive press.
Let’s dive into the 2018 Mazda lineup, and find out why these cars have garnered such respect and admiration. Currently, there are three cars in the Mazda lineup with the Mazda3, Mazda6, and the Mazda MX-5 Miata, and all of them are worth writing about.
What makes the 2018 Mazda3 a good choice?
In many ways, it’s the Mazda3 that sets the tone for the other cars in the Mazda lineup. With “a more premium cabin than many other cars in its price range,” and efficiency numbers as high as 38 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY it’s no wonder U.S. News & World Report was so impressed.

With sleek lines and beautiful curves, the Mazda3 is extremely attractive. To top it off, the Mazda3 provides the same engaging driving dynamics that Mazda has been known for.
Is the Mazda6 a good car?
If you think the Mazda3 is wonderful, then you’ll love the Mazda6 too. It offers everything that the Mazda3 offers and more.
With a larger size, you’ll find more room in the back seat, more luxury features on the higher trims, and more standard and available power under the hood. It’s the same Mazda formula, with even more to love.
2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata: the even more sporty choice
Though all the models in the Mazda lineup have a sporty look, feel, and sound, the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata takes that to a whole new level. As a true roadster with performance under the hood and a surprising amount of efficiency, safety features, and overall practicality, it could just be the best roadster on the market. Not to mention, it has both a convertible option and a retractable hardtop option.
