The all-new Mazda MX-5 Retractable Fastback has followed its convertible siblings success after winning the "Red Dot: Best of the best" title at the 2017 Red Dot product design award. Awarded to products meeting the highest design standards in their given category, the jury of 39 designers, professors and journalists picked the Mazda MX-5 RF as a winner from a criteria including innovation, functionality, ergonomics, symbolic and emotional content, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility.
“Despite facing new competition this year, the Mazda MX-5 has triumphed again. We love its rev-happy and punchy 2.0-litre engine, its simple mechanical roof and its temptingly low price. Even better, the MX-5’s ride and handling proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that less is more. Its lightweight chassis construction makes for a driving experience that’s guaranteed to brighten your day, and with surprisingly good fuel economy, this is a fun car that’s both cheap to buy and run.” –WhatCar?, 2017.
“Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology has given the CX-5 some of the lowest CO2 emissions and highest fuel economy figures in the class, beating those of rivals such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. However, the Mazda CX-5 also has the space to rival them, because its interior is large and the boot a generous size. It handles exceptionally well for a large SUV
, too, while the amount of standard equipment you get is plentiful considering the car’s relatively low price.”–WhatCar?, 2017.
Curtis Hutchinson, Editor, Motor Trader, said “The overriding criteria was to identify which companies are delivering the highest quality products, and services. Motor Trader awarded Mazda for their impressive approved used programme and Mazda’s National Used Car Locator”.
