Because this is NOT a teen wish list. Forbes describes the methodology they used in creating this list and if you read it, the list makes perfect sense.

If this WAS a teen wish list, Mazda would be all over it.

Re: Mazda not on Forbes Teen list

They rate cars based on safety, fuel economy, overall value, insurance rates, etc.

I think that their methodology is sound but their evaluation of individual vehicles is a bit odd. In theory the list is a great idea, but individual evaluators have their own biases and perceptions.

Mazdas are typically a solid value, fuel efficient and relatively safe.

So IN MY OPINION, some mazda product should have made the list.

Re: Mazda not on Forbes Teen list

These cars may be a safe choice but I dont really seem most of them on a teens wish list. Where do they come up with this stuff?

It's more of a wishlist for parents with teenagers.

What kind of boring ass teen wants a malibu?

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.
