The Mazda MX-5 is a terrific two-seat convertible that's good to drive and won't cost a fortune to buy or own. It might not offer the blood and thunder acceleration of the more expensive machines in the sports car class, but with its free-revving engines, sweet gearbox and nimble handling, it’s well worth considering.

An enjoyably revvy 130bhp 1.5-litre non-turbo engine that'll suit those who are more interested in cruising or want the cheapest running costs. 0-62mph takes a reasonably nippy 8.3 seconds yet claimed economy is in the mid-forties, a figure that you can achieve with careful driving. It’s the pick of the line-up because it’s a fair bit cheaper than the 2.0-litre, and although it isn’t lightning quick there’s still plenty of fun to be had in driving it hard. Only available with SE-L and Sport trims.
