Mazda is distributed by Bermaz Auto Philippines (BAP) since January 2013. The company was formerly known as Berjaya Auto Philippines. The office of BAP is located in Makati City and has a network of 21 dealers nationwide.
The company currently sources its cars overseas from a multitude of countries. The company gets its units from Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan. For other markets, the brand also has plants in China, Mexico, Russia, and Vietnam.
Mazda Philippines’ lineup consists of sedans, hatchbacks, a truck, crossovers, a wagon, and a roadster. Current models are the Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-5, CX-5, BT-50, and MX-5 are the nameplates currently present in the country.
Mazda Philippines unveiled its newest compact and midsize offering in the market in 2019, as well as making refreshes to one of its crossovers. The Mazda6 sedan was initially launched with a sole diesel variant, then a turbocharged gasoline and wagon body style were released after a time. The Mazda3 was finally unveiled in 2019 after a few months of teasing, which came in either a Sedan or Sportback body style. The Mazda CX-5 received a few updates and a new variant for the 2020 model year as well.
One of the models removed from the Mazda Philippines lineup is the CX-3 subcompact crossover. A few years back, another crossover also got dropped from the lineup, the CX-7, which was an intermediate size in between compact and midsize categories.
Mazda has different ways of naming its variants. For the Mazda2 the brand uses the letters S, V+, and R to denote low, mid, and high variants respectively. The word “Premium” is then used to mark the top hatchback variant. Models bigger than the Mazda2, except for the BT-50, use words instead of letters. The Mazda3 uses the terms Elite for 1.5L-equipped models and Premium for 2.0L-equipped models. The CX-5 uses the words Pro and Sport to name its high and low models respectively. Meanwhile, the CX-9 has Touring and Signature trims where one is a front-wheel-drive model while the other is an all-wheel-drive model. Other Mazdas that have different engine options will be known by their corresponding engine options and body style. This is exactly the case with the Mazda6 Sedan and Sports Wagon. The MX-5 has two models, one with a soft top and one with a hardtop called the RF. The different trims are named depending on the main differentiator between models.
