Mazda Miata Award
Recognition of Excellence
At Rosen Mazda we are not unaccustomed to receiving recognition for excellence. The great Mazda sedans, crossovers and sports cars we sell are often recognized by industry experts and the automotive media as great vehicles with incredible bang for the buck. Of the vehicles making Car and Driver’s “Ten Best Cars” list for 2016, the Miata and the Mazda 3 were both among them. We couldn’t be happier that others agree with what we’ve been saying for decades: Mazda makes the best performing, greatest looking cars on the road today.
The Car and Driver 10Best list contains ten vehicles (of course) that fall into the price range of under $80,000. Other considerations are made along the evaluations of what the magazine calls “value and engagement, performance and poise, sights and sounds, soul and character.” The combination of these “virtues” to use their word is what gives each car they pick an edge over the ones who fail to make the list. And there were dozens that were considered too.
One of the World’s Best Automobiles
The Mazda Miata must be getting pretty comfortable with its recognition as one of the world’s best automobiles. After all, this is the second year in a row that the Miata made the 10Best list. This year also marks the 15th time the Miata has made the list overall. The Miata has been in production for close to thirty years now, so getting recognized for half of that is quite an accomplishment.
Car and Driver believes the Miata is the epitome of the word “roadster”. It defines the category in other words. We knew that already, but it’s great to hear. The magazine recognizes the true virtues of the Miata: it’s small, light, fast and efficient. At 2,309 pounds the Miata can go from zero to 60 in just a hair under six seconds. It also gets props for the way it handles, almost moving with the body of the driver. And it’s pretty easy on the eyes with its sharp edges and low beltline. The magazine recommends the MX-5 Club version which is priced just under $30,000
