The Mazda MX-5 is a terrific two-seat convertible that's great to drive and won't cost a fortune to buy or own. It might only be as fast as a Ford Fiesta ST, and doesn't have the interior luxury of a Mini Convertible, but you can't beat it for pure driving enjoyment.

Trim: SE-L Nav+

This trim adds the 7.0in infotainment system with Bluetooth, a DAB radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and an extra couple of speakers. You also get climate control, cruise control, heated seats, black wheels and the option of the 2.0-litre engine. If you do pick the more powerful engine, you gain bigger 17in wheels and a limited-slip differential to boost traction.

Engine: 1.5 [132]

An enjoyably revvy engine that'll suit those who are more interested in cruising or want the cheapest running costs.
