Using judging criteria set by website visitors and the experts from Auto Express, Evo and Octane magazines (founders of the website) the Mazda MX5 was voted ‘Best Convertible’ to win its category in the first CarBuyer Awards with a star rating of 4.6 (out of 5). This 92 percent score ensured that the MX5 beat the short-listed models from Porsche, Audi, Peugeot and Volvo to claim the convertible crown.

Commenting on the Mazda’s success, the CarBuyer judges stated, “The Mazda MX5 reigns supreme as the ultimate drop-top choice. With a soft-top model, the clever folding hard-top Roadster Coupe and even an automatic option, there is something for everyone – and the tiny two-seater is great fun to drive.”

“Cars that are this much fun rarely make so much sense. The latest MX-5 has a racy new look to match the rest of the Mazda 2011 line-up and comes with attractive prices. Build quality is brilliant and reliability first rate, while the 1.8 and 2.0 engines provide just the right amount of performance. Best of all, this sporty roadster is no bone-shaker, so it’s as comfortable as it is good to drive.”
