Mazda MX-5 wins Best Sports Car award


The Mazda MX-5 roadster has earned the title of ‘Best Sports Car’ in the 2010 JD Power vehicle ownership satisfaction survey

More than 17,000 car owners across the UK took part in the annual survey, which saw owners of Mazda’s two-seater sportscar give their cars top-scores for appearance, exterior and interior quality and mechanical reliability, performance, running costs and dealer service.

The Mazda MX-5 notched up a satisfaction rating of 82.3% - beating the Mercedes-Benz SLK, VW Eos and Audi TT rivals to claim the ‘Best-in-Class’ honours.

Results of the latest survey confirmed that MX-5 owners are particularly happy with the soft-top’s quality and reliability. The exterior design got top marks and the car was highly rated for how it drove.

“Today, the Mazda MX-5 remains unrivalled as a rewarding sportscar that can also be used for everyday motoring all year round. The MX-5 soft-top continues to offer the purest, fun-to-drive thrills, while the Roadster Coupe adds to those thrills with an even more premium experience, together with that same exhilarating drive. With its low running costs and legendary reliability, the MX-5 remains an extremely competitive proposition as hundreds of satisfied owners confirm,” says Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
