Mazda MX-5 Named Most Popular Convertible Again


In the most recent Honest John survey, the lovely Mazda MX-5 has been named the most popular convertible sports car, again.

The Brits loved the MX-5 from the very beginning, because it was the closest thing ot the traditional British sports car of the yesteryear. The Mazda MX-5 took class honours ahead of a shortlist which also included the Volkswagen Eos, BMW 3-Series Convertible, BMW Z4 and Fiat 500C. This latest award once again proves that the world’s best-selling two-seater sportscar remains Britain’s favourite convertible.

What has made the MX-5 such a great sports car are its handling abilities, ease of use and low running costs, while the website features many more glowing reviews from owners of the car. The latest version of the car in the UK is the Mazda MX-5 Venture Edition on sale now from £18,995.

Mazda press release:

“This award confirms that the Mazda MX-5 remains a resounding hit among the British public,” said Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director for Mazda UK.  “In spite of a growing number of competitors in this sector, the consistent level of praise for the MX-5 – from journalists and motorists alike – marks it out as the ideal all-year-round convertible.

With the belated British summer just around the corner, Mazda has recently introduced a new special edition of its iconic sportscar – the MX-5 Venture Edition.  Available in Soft-top or Roadster Coupe (a retractable hard-top) form, this latest special edition of the world’s most popular open top sports car features upgraded luxurious specification, advanced technology, premium interior trim and exclusive exterior colours.

Based on the Mazda MX-5 SE and Sport Tech models, the Venture Edition is available as a 1.8-litre MZR Soft?top (SE) and a 2.0-litre MZR Roadster Coupe (Sport Tech), and is priced at £18,995 and £22,295 (OTR).  The car retains all of the dynamic attributes, low running costs and open-top thrills that have cemented the Mazda MX-5’s place in the hearts and minds of motorists around the world.
