“No car embodies the spirit of a roadster better than the all-new Mazda MX-5. With its nimble rear-wheel-drive handling, compact dimensions, an eye-catching price tag and simple fabric top, it delivers wind-in-the-hair thrills to the masses.”
The all-new Mazda MX-5 has been credited with yet another title this week to add to its growing list of commendations, as Auto Express name it Roadster of the Year 2016; beating the Jaguar F-Type and Porche 718 Boxster to the top spot. The fourth generation of the iconic Mazda MX-5 has continued to wow since its release, due to its extraordinary lightweight body, elegant curves and impressive performance, so unsurprisingly Auto Express have nothing but admiration:
- “It’s through a series of corners that the Mazda really comes into its own. With its light and precise steering, beautifully balanced chassis and skinny tyres, the Mazda MX-5’s engaging handling can be enjoyed and exploited at any speed”.
- “Thanks to Mazda’s SkyActiv technology, this fourth-generation model weighs around 100kg less than its predecessor, meaning it feels faster and more agile than ever.”
- “The curves and creases of the bodywork fit perfectly over the mechanicals, giving the car a taut and neatly proportioned stance.”
- “Inside, the mix of slick design and good-quality materials gives the Mazda a surprisingly upmarket appearance. But this premium appeal won’t leave big dents in your wallet.”
