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. It’s freer-revving and has more charisma than the larger-engined car and it’ll cost you less to buy and to run, too. The 2.0-litre offers more performance and is also a great car, but for most people, we suspect the 1.5 will be the better bet.
