IRVINE, CA--June 19, 2013: In today's J.D. Power and Associates' 2013 Initial Quality Study (IQS), the iconic MX-5 Miata sports car and the Mazda2 subcompact both receive awards for the highest initial quality in their respective segments. Additionally, Mazda5 ranked second in its segment. This is the seventh time in eight years that MX-5 has rated highest in its segment.

"From the smallest bolt, to the finest stitch, all Mazda vehicles are built to have outstanding initial quality, and to retain that quality long after the vehicle has left the showroom floor," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. "While MX-5 and Mazda2 are our smallest vehicles in size, they're our largest in quality. They're both a demonstration that neither price nor size determines quality, only a dedication to customer satisfaction."

MX-5 Miata has been perennially successful in the Compact Sporty Car segment. Following in MX-5's foot prints, Mazda2 also ranked highest in the Sub-Compact Car segment, the first time it has taken the highest ranking. Mazda's unique Mazda5 multi-activity vehicle placed second in the Multi-Purpose Vehicle class.

The 2013 U.S. Initial Quality Study is based on the responses from more than 83,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2013 model-year cars, trucks and multi-activity vehicles surveyed after 90 days of ownership.
