Murgado Automotive Group opens Mazda dealership in Miami
Murgado Automotive Group opened a Mazda dealership Thursday in Miami, the company’s seventh car dealership.
Brickell Mazda will operate from a temporary location at 618 SW 8th St. Construction is underway at a new showroom at 701 SE 8th St., where the dealership will move in 2015.
Murgado Automotive Group had been trying to open a Mazda dealership in Brickell since before the Great Recession, CEO Mario Murgado said in a news release.
“We have always believed that Mazda was a great fit for this area,” said Murgado. “It took a while and the auto industry endured the bumps in the economy, but we are proud to deliver this great brand to the downtown area.”
Murgado Automotive Group operates six other car dealerships in the area: Brickell Honda, Brickell Buick & GMC, Ocean Cadillac, Audi Stuart, Infiniti Stuart and Brickell Luxury Motors.
