Mazda MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary

February 10, 2014 marked the 25th anniversary of one of the most iconic cars in the automotive industry that is still in production today — the Mazda MX-5 Miata. As a vehicle that has truly defined its segment since its inception, the MX-5 Miata is more than a fun-to-drive sports car. It also is a testament to the fact that you can find true driving excitement without spending $75,000 on a sports car.

Available as a two-seat roadster coupe and as a convertible, the MX-5 Miata has continued to stay ahead of the curve in terms of sporty styling. The zippy Miata has always been known for its precise steering and athletic handling, and that can largely be attributed to its lightweight build and practical engine offerings. In its third generation, we proudly celebrate the Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 25th Anniversary at Bill Jacobs Mazda.


Mazda MX-5 Miata Awards

There are thousands of Miata owners who more than just drive their Miatas, they have a true passion for the excellence of the vehicle. With MX-5 Miata clubs throughout the country and consistent sales figures in its 25 years at dealerships, it’s clear the Miata has captured the hearts of drivers everywhere.

To truly be considered great, however, the Miata needed to also earn the critical acclaim of automotive journalists and other experts who cover the industry. The MX-5 Miata certainly has earned approval from various sources through the years, including a trophy case full of awards. That showcase includes two Wheels Magazine’s Car of the Year designations, 14 appearances on Car and Driver magazine’s 10 Best List, and Grassroots Motorsports magazine naming it the most important sports car built in the last 25 years.

Now in its 25th year in the automotive industry, the Mazda MX-5 Miata continues to prove its excellence to drivers everywhere, including those on the Bill Jacobs Mazda lot.
