What Car? says

5 out of 5 stars

For Great to drive, reliable and desirable

Against Limited boot space, but that's about it

Verdict Fun, fast and rock solid: what more could you want from a convertible sports car?

Go for… 2.0i roadster

Avoid… 1.8i coupe cabriolet

Mazda MX-5 Open
  • 1. Reasonably sized boot for a two-seater
  • 2. Check roof mechanism and examine for leaks before you buy
  • 3. Some owners complain of a buzzing noise near the gearstick, but Mazda says it's nothing to worry about
  • 4. Check for uneven tyre wear - wheels could be misaligned
