World Car of the Year 2016 is the Mazda MX-5

By -

The winners of the 2016 World Car Awards have been announced at the 2016 New York Motor Show – including the prestigious overall prize for World Car of the Year

The Miata beat out the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, the two other finalists running for the overall World Car of the Year award.

The Mazda MX-5 remains a rear-wheel-drive, compact sports roadster with an exterior design inspired by the Shinari Concept unveiled in 2010. With the new generation, the ND, Mazda focused on reducing the total weight to less than 2,400 pounds and implementing the SkyActiv technology that’s already available across the rest of its lineup.
