Since its launch 20 years ago, Mazda MX-5 has been one of the UK’s most favourite cars. So no wonder that in the 2010 JD Power survey it was awarded as Britain’s ‘Best Sports car’. This little Japanese is probably the only successful copy of a true British roadster. It’s a very desirable car not for things that is has, but because of things that it doesn’t have!
The MX-5 is simple and honest and most importantly affordable. It offers unmatched level of driving fun in its class, mainly thanks to its lightness. It doesn’t ask what you need, it asks what you can live without! Of course these days it’s got caught up in the game and comes with retractable metal roof and all other stuff you won’t need, and that has made it heavier ans less fun, but still comparing to its rivals, it’s a true British sportscar, except its Japanese!
“Today, the Mazda MX5 remains unrivalled as a rewarding sportscar that can also be used for everyday motoring all year round. The MX-5 soft-top continues to offer the purest, fun-to-drive thrills, while the Roadster Coupe adds to those thrills with an even more premium experience, together with that same exhilarating drive. With its low running costs and legendary reliability, the MX-5 remains an extremely competitive proposition as hundreds of satisfied owners confirm,” comments Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
Mazda MX-5 notched up a satisfaction rating of 82.3 percent – beating the Mercedes-Benz SLK, VW Eos and Audi TT rivals to claim the ‘Best-in-Class’ honours. The car is priced form £17,245 to £22,730 in the UK.
