You'll like: driving it; reliability
You won't: not a lot
Roadsters don’t come much better than this little Mazda – or more enjoyable. Drive an MX-5 and you’ll love it; own one and you’ll never want to sell it
What’s it like?
The original MX-5 was launched in 1989, but the car in the spotlight here went on sale in 2005 when the traditional soft-top was joined by a Roadster Coupé. The Roadster has an electrically powered folding fibreglass roof, giving the security of a hard-top car but with wind-in-your-hair motoring at the touch of a button.
A two-seater sports car can never be described as practical, but the MX-5 is comfortable and reasonably roomy, with a boot that will happily accommodate a couple of overnight bags. The Mazda is also cracking to drive, and reliable, too.
