The Mazda MX-5 has been named the World Car of the Year!

Mazda makes some of the most responsive and powerful vehicles in the world. Therefore, when Mazda vehicles win awards, it’s not that surprising. However, the latest award that Mazda has earned is astounding on an international scale!

According to a Mazda press release, the Mazda MX-5 was named the 2016 World Car of the Year. The World Car of the Year title is awarded to vehicles by a board of international automotive journalists. The MX-5 was chosen due to its sporty performance and efficient SKYACTIV technology.

“As our iconic MX-5 roadster approaches one-million units of production, this award is proof that it is as young, vibrant, fun and relevant as ever,” said Masahiro Moro, President and CEO, Mazda North American Operations, and Managing Executive Officer, Mazda Motor Corporation. “While I accept this award on behalf of the company, I do so representing every Mazda employee, retail partner and customer around the world who has ever felt the joy of driving a pure roadster. We say ‘Driving Matters’ in our advertising, and we prove it in our cars.”
