Mazda flies as independent dealership
The Mazda brand this week crawled out from under its bigger brother’s wing when it left the Novel Ford dealership in Independence Avenue to move to its own glitzy premises in Windhoek’s Lazarett Street opposite Pupkewitz MegaBuild. “This opening represents the Namibian component of a trend that has been sweeping the globe which is the complete image and technology make-over that Mazda has undergone,” said Ricardo Raposo, Managing Director of Novel Motor Company. The new showroom offers adequate floor space to showcase the variety of models under the Mazda marque.
