MX5 GETS MORE SILVERWARE
CARRYING on the tradition of its predecessors, the recently launched in South Africa, new edition of the all- new Mazda MX- 5 has now collected more than 15 prizes from around the world.
Proud winner of Japan Car of the Year 2015- 2016 and the Japan Automotive Hall of Fame’s 2015- 2016 Car of the Year; the roadster has been honoured with numerous major accolades globally.
These include 2016 Wheels Car of the Year for the third time in the model’s history in Australia, number one convertible at the Australia Drive magazine’s Car of the Year awards, “Best Drop Top” at Scottish Car of the Year 2015 and winner of the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” prize in Germany — which is an award that recognises exceptionally ground- breaking designs across many industries. More honours come from UK’s
What Car? magazine, which chose the fourth- generation MX- 5 as best convertible overall in the UK, as well as best convertible under £ 25 000. Mazda’s brand icon also made UK’s Sun
day Times “Top 100 Cars 2016” list, winning the two- seater roadster category.
Ranked highest in the Compact Sporty Car category on the 2015 Highest- Ranked Nameplates and Models list by JD Power; motorists have matched the enthusiasm shown by award juries thus far.
Almost one million have sold in the 27 years following the launch of the original MX- 5 in 1989. Since then, the legendary sports car has captured more than 240 awards around the world. In redesigning the model Mazda concentrated on stimulating the sensations through which people enjoy cars.
The Mazda MX5 continues to win accolades.
