The name Mazda is inspired by both the name of the car company's creator, Jujiro Matsuda, and Ahura Mazda, which means God in Avestan. The company began as the Toyo Cork Kogyo in Hiroshima, Japan, in early 1920. By 1931, the company had switched from making tools to vehicles and introduced the Mazda-Go autorickshaw. Though all autos from that point onward were named Mazda, it wasn't until 1984 that the name wad officially adopted.

In the 1960s, Mazda developed the Wankel rotary engine to differentiate itself from competing Japanese automobile manufacturers. This got the attention of drivers, as both rotary-powered and piston-powered models were being shipped worldwide. When they joined forces with the Ford Motor Company in 1974, their development included a wider range of vehicles. From there, they have become a definitive manufacturer in the auto industry.

Since the early 1990s, Mazda has gone from having dozens of similar models to narrowing them down to a decently-sized lineup. These vehicles combine ergonomics with a unique sporty style that is a crossover from their years of making race cars. They also become even more affordable when purchased used or certified pre-owned.
