The MX-5 RF is a small car, so if you fancy one but you’re over six-feet tall, make sure you try before you buy. The fact that you can easily touch the passenger door from the driver’s seat is a good indicator of this, and means that shoulder room is tight if you have someone sat next to you. Leg room is also tight and you’ll likely find your head brushing the roof lining, too. If you’re closer to average height, the interior still seems cosy, but you should have enough space.
Storage space is also compromised, with no door bins or glovebox. The only place to stow your paraphernalia is a shallow cubby under the central armrest, a slightly larger cubby between the two seats, or a shallow tray at the base of the dash that’s about the right size for a mobile phone.
