Today, we are excited to tell you all about how one of the most recognizable and iconic brands came to be.

The Mazda company has a long, reputable history of making high quality vehicles for drivers around the world. The automaker had its beginning all the way back in 1920 in Hiroshima, Japan under the name Toyo Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd. Seven years later, it changed its name to Toyo Kogyo Co., Ltd, and eventually to Mazda in 1984. Although it has changed its name throughout the years, the Mazda brand's commitment to high quality and excellent customer service has never been diminished. Our Mazda dealership is happy and proud to stand by our Mazda brand vehicles!

Mazda also comes with a wide range of vehicles owing to its long and impressive history as an automaker. Looking back, the Mazda brand has come a long way from its early vehicles in the 1920s. In fact, the newer vehicles have become so advanced that they hardly even compare! Take the new 2017 Mazda 5, new to drivers in the Cape Coral area, for example. It isn't even available yet, but it is already making waves in the automobile community. Equipped with a 2.5 L 4 cylinder engine, the minivan style Mazda vehicle is expected to generate 157 horsepower and 150 lbs-ft of torque. However, the automaker is even suggesting the 2.5L 4 cylinder engine may be available as an option. Compared to its humble origins, the Mazda brand has certainly come a long way.
