Mazda MX-5 wins Australia’s Wheels Car of the Year 2016

The Mazda MX-5 was named 2016 Car of the Year by Wheels, one of Australia’s leading automotive magazines, on January 21.


Established in 1963, Wheels Car of the Year is an award with a long history. The fourth-generation MX-5 is the third Mazda to win the title: the original MX-5 (know at the time as the Miata) took the award in 1989 and the third-generation model did the same in 2005.
