The Mazda6 has been named the 2014 Canadian Car of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada.

Thursday's announcement at the Canadian International AutoShow marks the second time that Mazda Canada has earned the overall car of the year title, after winning the award in 2004 for the Mazda3.

The Mazda6 was also the winner of the category Best New Family Car Over $30,000.

Twelve category winners were eligible for the top honours of either the Canadian Car of the Year or Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Chrysler's Jeep Cherokee was crowned utility vehicle of the year, beating out 18 other SUVs.

Mazda Canada President Kory Koreeda says the company is honoured with the car of the year title, calling the Mazda6 the company's  flagship car.

``This car introduced a combination of style, safety, fuel economy, and dynamic driving into the midsize segment that has never been available before,'' Koreeda said.

The winners are voted on by a group of Canadian automotive journalists, who gathered in Niagara Falls, Ont., last October for a five-day test-drive evaluation of brand-new or significantly changed vehicle models.

    I would agree, I drive a 2006 Mazda 6, great car, except...... all Mazda's seem to rust. I like to keep cars for a long time and I don't have much hope for a long life for my 2006 Mazda 6.

    Can't Mazda figure out the rust?
