Brandon Steven Welcome's Mazda to the Eddy's Family

The Eddy's Automotive family has expanded to nearby Kansas City, Missouri with the acquisition of Lee's Summit Mazda. Eddy's principal Brandon Steven, owner of Eddy's Everything nine Wichita-area dealerships and Eddy's Ford of Augusta, said the appeal of the Mazda brand made the acquisition of the Lee's Summit dealership a no-brainer. The newly-opened Eddy's Mazda of Lee's Summit has already begun serving clients.

In an interview with the Wichita Eagle, Steven said "Mazda is a great brand- I jumped all over it fast." Stevens went on to add that relatively new building that houses the dealership will have to undergo only minor upgrades once it joins the Eddy's dealership umbrella.

The Mazda brand has undergone a major resurgence in recent years, and has developed a large and loyal following amongst Wichita-area drivers. While the brand's pedigree was formed with the development of performance-inspired roadsters like the famed Mazda MX-5 Miata, recent model years have featured a spate of performance sedans and family-oriented, all-wheel-drive crossovers that have won various acclaim for their fuel-efficiency and cargo versatility.

Mazda's success has come with numerous accolade. The Mazda3 sports sedan has been named a Car and Driver 10 Best for three consecutive years, and the entire Mazda lineup helped it earn 2016 "Best Car Brand" from U.S. News & World Report.

 
 

Thanks to the purchase of a property adjacent to the new dealership, the lot-size of the new Mazda dealership is expected to double in size, a growth that is likely to give drivers from across the region access to a variety of new and recently-released Mazda sedans and crossovers. In addition to showcasing a variety of new Mazda models, the dealership is also expected to house a wide variety of pre-owned cars, trucks and SUVs as well.

The Eddy's brand is one of the largest automotive dealership franchises in the greater-Wichita area, consisting of Eddy's Toyota of Wichita, Eddy's Chevrolet Cadillac, Eddy's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Eddy's Ford of Augusta, Eddy's Volvo, Eddy's Scion of Wichita, Subaru of Wichita and three Super Car Guys dealerships.

Eddy's Mazda of Lee's Summit is also expected to house a full-service automotive parts and repair center. While the venture is the Eddy's brand's first foray into the Lee's Summit/Kansas City region, there are no plans as yet for a full-blown immersion into the market.
