The Mazda MX-5 Miata Wins Yet Another Award

Since the Mazda MX-5 Miata first hit the streets of places like Knoxville over 30 years ago, it has been nothing short of one very impressive roadster.  For example, Car and Driver has put it on their list of 10Best Cars for 13 years - 2012 marks the 7th year in a row the Miata has made the list. On top of being one of the world's most consistently popular two-seat roadsters, it's also one of the most popular cars on the Internet.

Or at least, that's what the folks over at Honest John are reporting. A valuable resource for car shoppers in the United Kingdom, Honest John writes in depth reviews of vehicles, answers questions from car buyers and owners, and provides helpful tips and tricks for new vehicle shoppers. One thing they track at Honestjohn.co.uk is the most searched for vehicles, the data from which is incredibly telling about the popularity of certain models.

As such, every year, they present the Honest John Awards, which recognize the most popular models on the website. This year, the MX-5 Miata took the award for most-read convertible reviews. Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director for Mazda UK says, "This award confirms that the Mazda MX-5 remains a resounding hit among the British public...In spite of a growing number of competitors in this sector, the consistent level of praise for the MX-5 - from journalists and motorists alike - marks it out as the ideal all-year-round convertible."1

So, what about these reviews so many people are reading at Honest John? Well the folks at the website have a lot of good things to say about the roadster, including the fact that it's nimble, fun to push to its limits, and a beautifully designed car. In summary, they say the Miata is "A great sports car...easy to live with day-to-day, comparatively inexpensive to run, [and the] roof is easy to fold down."2

Of course, we already knew what a popular car this is - we see a lot of people here at Twin City Mazda wanting to take one for a spin. Why not stop by our showroom at 3076 Airport Highway, Alcoa, TN to see what all the buzz is about? We're always happy to answer questions and arrange a test drive.
