Mazda New Zealand’s Managing Director, Andrew Clearwater is delighted to join the sponsor family for The X Factor NZ and expand the long-standing partnership it shares with MediaWorks.

We believe our range of new-generation vehicles has that same ‘X Factor’ which has made Mazda a favourite with Kiwi motorists. We look forward to being part of this search for excellence with a group of sponsors that share the same reputations for excellence and quality.”

The X Factor NZ is hosted by Dominic Bowden alongside the superstar judging panel of Melanie Blatt, Stan Walker, Natalia Kills and Willy Moon.
