2018 Mazda MX-5 cornering

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: Sport Tech

Going for Sport Tech trim means you can opt for the larger engine, and gets even more including a reversing camera, 17in wheels, sports suspension and a limited-slip differential. It's a fair bit more money, but we'd be tempted to say it's worth it for the added safety kit and improved handling.

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.
