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.

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: 2.0 [184]

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.
