MX-5 – the Roadster that’s big on awards and big on driving thrills
For the second year, the Mazda MX-5 has taken the Auto Express Roadster of the Year title, adding to its already impressive record of wins, including the 2016 World Car of the Year. You have to wonder where Mazda puts so many awards, as the MX-5’s winning streak looks set to continue, thanks to its outstanding KODO: Soul of Motion design and its award-winning SKYACTIV technology.
So what sets the Mazda MX-5 apart? Perfect 50:50 weight distribution and the lowest-ever centre of gravity on an MX-5 combined with highly efficient engines and a genuine wealth of technology are a vital part of the equation. However, in the end, it’s down to the sheer joy of driving. When you get behind the wheel of the MX-5, it’s a driving experience unequalled by any other car. As the Auto Express Road Test Editor said: “No other car embodies the fun-loving spirit of a roadster better than the Mazda MX-5. Combining beautifully balanced rear-wheel drive handling and head-turning looks with an affordable price tag, the Mazda brings wind in the hair thrills to the masses.” Ready to try it yourself?
