Which used Mazda MX-5 sports should I buy?

Engine

The engine choice is quite simple: there are only two to choose from. If you spend most of your time in town, or you need something with cheaper insurance costs, then the 1.5-litre petrol is a fine choice.

We prefer the more powerful 2.0-litre because it offers that bit more performance and it also comes with a limited-slip differential that makes it even more capable in corners. And the fuel economy penalty isn’t so great that you would notice it.

Specification

Equipment levels are rather good, but we'd seek out an SE-L Nav car; this'll give you sat-nav along with all the handy bits and pieces you'll need.

Our favourite Mazda MX-5 2.0 SE-L Nav
