Review

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.

get the best price

Over SE-L Nav+ you get rear parking sensors, auto lights and wipers, leather seats, a Bose stereo and adaptive LED headlights. You also get extra safety kit; emergency automatic braking in both forwards and reverse, lane departure warning and a driver attention alert. 2.0-litre models get 17in alloy wheels, sports suspension, a strut brace and a limited-slip differential.

Engine:

2.0

This 2.0-litre engine shows the MX-5 at its best, with plenty of power to have fun without the car ever feeling too fast for the road. It's capable of surprisingly good economy, but not when you're enjoying all of the 7500rpm available to you.
