The Japanese automobile manufacturer, Mazda, produces high performing, affordable vehicles. Established in Hiroshima in 1920, Mazda started out as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Company. The first automobile under the Mazda brand came out in the 1960s.
The R360 coupe came out in 1960. In 1961 Mazda joined with Wankel and NSU to create rotary engines which led to the company being the first to be able to produce rotary, gasoline, and diesel engines. During the decade Mazda also brought out the 110S Cosmo Sport and the B-Series 1500 pickup.
Early in the70s Mazda started exporting cars to the United States. The first model was the RX-2 which offered an affordable and fun riding experience to the American car buying population. Later int the decade the RX-3, the RX-4 and the RX-7 were introduced. At the end of the decade Mazda sold a quarter of its corporation to the Ford Motor Company to resolve its burdensome financial problems.
Mazda saw an strong improvement in sales in the 80s due primarily to the success of the 323, and the 626. The affordable and responsive MX-5 Miata came out in 1990. It remains to be a top rated roadster even today.
