As any top athlete or actor would tell you, being an all-star is never easy. After all, to earn the title you have to stand out from the crowd and take people on a ride they’ll never forget – and we would know. The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata was recently named a 2016 Automobile All-Star, making it one of only seven vehicles to earn the incredible honor this year.

Judges at Automobile magazine named this year’s All-Star winners after extensively evaluating 25 eligible contenders in person at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Nevada in addition to driving along road loops surrounding the facility. Winners were ultimately selected through a staff vote.

Magazine editors celebrated the vehicle’s fun-loving personality and consistently smooth ride in recommending it as an All-Star. But these are only some of the qualities that have helped the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata earn Automobile All-Star status an impressive 11 times.

At Lester Glenn Mazda, we can see exactly why the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata caught editors’ eyes. Our Mazda dealership staff loves this vehicle for its affordability, practicality, and impressive list of standard and available features, including heated leather seating surfaces, navigation, LED headlights and tail lights as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, parking brake, and shift knob.

But there’s more to this vehicle than these touches of luxury. The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata fuels infotainment by providing a Bose premium audio system and bolsters safety through blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-departure warning.
