TORONTO, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Mazda Canada announced sales for April 2013 today totaling 6,682, which represents a decrease of 5% compared to April 2012. Total year-to-date sales of 23,420 are up by 1% over the first four months of 2012.

Sales of the all-new SKYACTIV Mazda6 shot up by 451% in April, making it the best April sales since 2009. SKYACTIV Technology-equipped vehicles accounted for nearly 60% of total vehicles sold in April.

"With the addition of the all-new Mazda6 with the new 2.5L SKYACTIV-G engine to our line-up, more and more consumers are experiencing what SKYACTIV is all about," stated David Klan, Senior Director of Sales, Marketing and Regional Operations at Mazda Canada. "The Mazda6 provides a driving experience like no other midsize sedan, combined with design and quality that is second to none."

The refreshed CX-9 and CX-5 also experienced positive gains in April, increasing 114% and 9%, respectively. The 2014 CX-5 is now available with an all-new 2.5L gasoline engine which produces 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque while still maintaining the excellent fuel economy standards set by the 2.0L CX-5 one year ago.
