《消费者报告》:Mazda比Toyota和Lexus更可靠

在美国,Mazda已经超越了传统的口碑王Toyota和Lexus,成为了最可靠的汽车品牌。这个结果来源于《消费者报告》的2020年汽车可靠性调查,他们收集了超过300,000辆车主的体验数据。Mazda有史以来第一次登顶,紧随其后的是Toyota,而Lexus则位居第三。《消费者报告》表示,Mazda能够取得这么好的成绩,有一个原因就是因为它没有对新车型进行大幅的改动。《消费者报告》指出:“Mazda成功的关键在于,他们对车型的改进十分保守,并且避免了引进新动力系统和多媒体系统的风险。他们的全系产品都得益于共用的平台和部件,在重新设计时也只会有细微的变动。”不过,Toyota的排名依旧十分靠前,Toyota的每一款车型也都高于平均水平。Lexus的排名因为其旗舰车型LS而有所下滑,除此之外,Lexus的所有车型都有着出色的可靠性,车主也都有着十分愉悦的用车体验。Honda排名第五,排在了第四名的Buick之后,但领先于第六名的Hyundai。在所有调查的Honda车型中,Honda HR-V是可靠性最好的。与City RS e:HEV搭载同样动力传动系统的Hon
