Triple J Auto Group unveiled the 2020 Mazda3 to the Guam market at a special VIP launch event held in the company's showroom in upper Tumon Wednesday evening.
Jay Jones, senior vice president of Triple J, said this year marks the 20th year of partnership between Triple J and Mazda.
“We are honored to introduce the all-new Mazda3. This is the start of a new era for the brand," he said.
Prior to the unveiling of the vehicle, Hiroshi Yoshida, general manager for Mazda's Market Operations Department No. 2, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, in part: “We want our products to help people live more fulfilling and vibrant lives. We also want customers to feel a strong bond with our brand."
Guam is one of the most important markets for Mazda in the Pacific islands, he said in a press release.
Yoshida said the Guam dealership "has a deep understanding of Mazda’s brand strategy and the local culture here."
"I am confident the new Mazda3 will further strengthen the special bond between Mazda and car lovers in Guam through the car-ownership experience and take Mazda brand into the new era.”
Since 2012, Mazda has introduced nine models featuring SKYACTIV Technology and KODO design into global markets.
This has resulted in steady sales growth at approximately 50,000 units per year, Triple J's press release stated.
Mazda3 has been Mazda’s highest achiever with sales of more than 6 million units in 130 countries and regions since the launch of the 1st-generation model in 2003. Triple J stated. Mazda3 has played a leading role not only in driving the carmaker's business growth worldwide but in strengthening bonds between customers and the Mazda brand.
