Mazda MX-5 Kenya: Reviews, Price, Specifications, Import

The Mazda MX-5 is a 2 passenger sports car that has been in production from 1989 to present. It’s known as the Mazda Roadster in Japan and it’s a favorite car for young people due to its affordability compared to other sports cars. In Kenya, the MX-5 is not as popular due to low demand for 2-seater cars as most people have families and they prefer bigger cars. Nevertheless, the Mazda MX-5 is an excellent weekend car for those who don’t mind its limited seating capacity.
