Mazda boss says MX-5 as crucial to Mazda DNA as rotary engine

Mazda Australia boss Martin Benders declared Mazda's MX-5 as crucial to the company's DNA and ethos as the development and adoption of the rotary engine. Speaking to CarAdvice at the launch of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF, Benders said: "In many ways, the MX-5 took over from what the rotary engine infused into the company. The rotary engine was the single most defining moment in Mazda's history."
