November 10th, 2016


Borgman Mazda in Grand Rapids is pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row, Mazda has been named the most fuel-efficient automaker in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency.

SKYACTIV is a suite of component and engineering technologies intended to cut vehicle weight, improve engine efficiency and bolster vehicle dynamics for outstanding environmental and safety performance without sacrificing the brand’s renowned driving pleasure.
