The Edge Singapore and Mazda Singapore recently hosted a special test-drive day.

On the evening of Nov 17, invited guests showed up at the Mazda showroom at 23 Leng Kee Road to test drive the Mazda MX-5. They were in for a treat, as this car won the 2016 World Car of the Year Award and World Car Design of the Year — a programme initiated, organised and conducted by automotive journalists worldwide.

The MX-5 has a maximum power of 158hp/6,000rpm, and perfect weather made it a pleasure to drive this sexy beast with the top down. Encouraged by the testdrive experience, guests could not resist taking the other Mazda models — such as the Mazda 6, Mazda 3, Mazda CX-3 — out for a spin.

As drinking and driving do not mix, the organisers of the event held the sake-tasting session after everyone had had their fun on the open road. The sake appreciation session was conducted by Eugene Wong, a representative from Mr Otaro, a company that distributes premium sake. Along with the sake, guests had Kirin beer and a sumptuous buffet spread to end the beautiful evening.
