We suspect some of you won’t be too worried about this bit. You already know the MX-5 is a great car and if you’ve fallen in love with the looks of this variant, you’ll have to buy a Z-Sport if you want to drive out of a Mazda showroom with a red roof and BBS wheels. If you’re nodding at this point then you’ll be buying a cracking car.
If, however, you’re stopping your heart overruling your head, we’d suggest looking a little lower down the range. Not only is the SE-L Nav over £3500 cheaper, it’s a bit comfier should you be more interested in cruising than attacking your favourite B-road at speed. Sure, you might miss out on a few little luxuries, but you’ll be having way too much fun to care.
