Mazda Sells 10 Millionth Car In America, Not All Of Them Are Miatas

Illustration for article titled Mazda Sells 10 Millionth Car In America, Not All Of Them Are Miatas

Mazda builds the Miata. But here's something you probably didn't know: They build all sorts of other cars too! And they just sold their 10 millionth car in America.


The car in question is something called the 2013 Mazda3, a decidedly non-rear wheel drive, non-roadster that Mazda has been making for quite a while. The 3, which fits five people (three more than in a Miata), was purchased by Lauren Carter of Illinois.


And Mazda, being the nice people that they are, took the 2013 3 away from Miss Carter to keep for their own and put in their museum. But Carter isn't walking away empty handed, Mazda handed her the keys to a brand new 2014 Mazda3, which I've driven and love, as a replacement.

Sounds fair, and congratulations to Mazda on 10 million sold. Now here's to selling 10 million Miatas in 2014. They can do it!

One car Garage - Mazda edition. If you could only have 1 car to live with for the rest of your life made by Mazda what would it be?

The answer to this question is NOT a Miata/MX-5.

The correct answer to this question is an FD RX-7. If you disagree you're wrong. I would rather have an RX-7 than any other sports car out there.
