Mazda is a Japanese automaker founded in 1920. With a focus on alternative building substances, the brand aims to produce more eco-friendly models. Mazda has also developed its SkyActiv Technology which aims to increase fuel economy and decrease emission levels. The design for the current Mazda logo is based on an owl’s open wings to symbolize Mazda’s vision for the future.
