MX-5 wins again
Mazda took triple honours in the 2016 UK Car of the Year Awards. The all-new Mazda MX-5 was crowned both the Open Top Car of the Year and the overall winner of Car of the Year, whilst the Mazda2 won Best Supermini. The MX-5 has also just won the 2016 World Car of the Year award. It is the second Mazda to win the award, following Mazda2 in 2008. The third generation MX-5 was one of three finalists in 2006, as was the Mazda3 in 2014. In addition to taking the main award this year, the MX-5 has also been named World Car Design of the Year. It is the first time in the history of the awards that a single model has taken both titles.
