The Mazda MX-5 has been voted Best Sports Convertible of the Year 2004 by Used Car Buyer magazine's panel of 15 motoring journalists and industry experts in their Used Car of the Year Awards 2004. Published monthly by TRMG magazines Ltd, Used Car Buyer is the UK's only consumer magazine dedicated to buying and selling used cars.
The Mazda MX-5 took the annual honours beating close rivals Porsche Boxster and Vauxhall VX220. It was marked highest for fitness for purpose, value for money, running costs, reliability, residual value and image.
Last year was an all-time record year for the Mazda MX-5 in the UK with sales exceeding 7,000. The popular roadster looks set for another record this year with sales to the end of September at 8,183 compared to 6,239 during the same period last year; an increase of 31.2 per cent. Mazda MX-5 is available from £15,000 on-the-road.Published 22 October 2003
