Mazda MX-5

Britain ’s biggest selling weekly car magazine, Auto Express, has selected the second generation Mazda MX-5 as the ‘best used Roadster money can buy’ in the latest round of its annual Used Car Honours. This is a repeat win for the MX-5 as it was also selected last year for this top Auto Express accolade.

Appraising the Mazda MX-5 in today’s edition of the magazine, Used Car Honours judge Mike Brewer comments: “There’s a second generation MX-5 to suit every pocket, from as little as £5,000. First-rate build quality and reliability help to make the MX-5 a car you can buy as much with your head as your heart and parts prices are reasonable.

"Whichever version you choose, the MX-5 will put a smile across your face, come rain or shine. The MX-5 is a legend in its own lifetime and its appeal is as strong on used car forecourts as it ever was in new car showrooms.”

The latest ‘Used Car Honours - Best Roadster’ award is just one of dozens of awards that Mazda’s iconic MX-5 has won over the last few years. In the UK, these include: ‘Best Used Sports Car’ Warranty Direct, ‘Roadster of the Year 2005’ BBCTop Gear magazine and ‘Best Used Sports Convertible 2004’ Used Car Buyer.
