Mazda is definitely one of the best car manufacturers out there as can be clearly attested by the number of Red Dot Awards they have received. And speaking of Red Dot awards, the MX-5 Rf ( retractable ) which was recently launched in the Philippines last May 2017 has just bagged another of the coveted awards in Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany. The MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback) is a variant of Mazda’s legendary two-seat, open top sports car repeats the success of the soft-top version, which captured the same honour in 2015.
“We are proud to share the MX-5 RF’s continuing success with Mazda fans in the Philippines,” says Steven Tan, president and CEO of Bermaz Auto Philippines, exclusive distributors of Mazda vehicles and parts in the country. “With its timeless lines and dynamic feel, the MX-5 RF is a true product of design and engineering innovation borne of the passion of pure driving and the Jinba Ittai connection between car and driver. The MX-5 RF’s unique fastback styling not only addresses the practical needs of Filipino sports car enthusiasts but it also resonates a deep emotional bond between man and machine,” adds Tan.
There are 39 members of the jury in the awards body that decided to award 102 entrants out of over 5,500 entries for the year 2017.
