In order to determine those vehicles that will be named to the “All-Stars” list, the judges at AUTOMOBILE magazine evaluated 25 contenders at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch as well as on road loops. The editors appreciated the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for its fun-to-drive personality and unrivaled open-top experience. Mike Floyd, editor-in-chief, AUTOMOBILE magazine, had this to say about the roadster:

There’s a reason the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been named an AUTOMOBILE All-Star an unprecedented 11 times. It’s arguably the best bang for the buck sports car of all time. An unrivaled open-top roadster that embodies our brand’s No Boring Cars mantra. A car that inspired generations of motorsports aficionados to hit the track. The 2016 MX-5 unquestionably carries on that tradition.

Robert Davis, senior vice president of U.S. operations, Mazda North American Operations, had this to say about the engaging and stylish roadster:

Since launching the 2016 MX-5 last summer, it has garnered nearly universal praise as a wonderful everyday, usable sports car that continues to win fans and owners. MX-5 has remained true to its roots as one of the most fun sports cars out there at any price, yet it’s remarkably modern. We’re honored that AUTOMOBILE felt that MX-5 was worthy of an All-Star award.
