We’re envious but (seriously) happy for them
It is estimated that 1,000 brand-new cars are released to new owners in the Philippines every day. So, handing over 10 keys to 10 fresh-off-the-boat vehicles shouldn't be a big deal. But Mazda Philippines begs to

This is not a proper review
Manual. Soft top. Ceramic white. Fabric seats. That's the exact Miata I will buy. Someday. The RF variants are fine, but I knew the moment I laid my eyes on this off-white color during the 2016 media launch that it'

It’s all about the sensations
It's been three years since the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 arrived in the country. And if we're being honest, by this point we've reviewed the lovable roadster ad nauseam.We've written every conceivable thing about the current
