Mazda MX-5 Wins Sports Car of the Year

The Mazda MX-5 has been awarded Sports Car of the Year in the annual Company Car Today CCT100 Awards.

Updated last year, the Mazda MX-5 maintains its position as the most recommendable of perk fleet cars. Practicality is obviously not the key strength of the two-seat convertible and hard-top RF models, but driving enjoyment certainly is, and that enjoyment is pretty much unmatched in terms of amusement per pound.

Enhancements last year brought improvements to cabin refinement and safety equipment, as well as a new, more powerful 2.0-litre engine; power output went up from 160hp to 184hp at the same time as emissions going down, thanks to the introduction of stop-start and a couple of other emissions-related technologies. The 1.5-litre version also received a trifling 1hp power upgrade to 132hp.

Other changes on the MX-5 include the welcome introduction of reach-adjustable steering wheel and improved seat sliding operation to help find the perfect driving position in the cosy cabin, while a good selection of safety tech, including autonomous emergency braking, is now fitted to Sport Nav+ trim upwards.

The MX-5 offers perk car privileges without prestige level running costs, and is sensible enough to run every day but still be smile-inducing. Which is why it has retained its CCT100 Sports Car of the Year title.
