Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 is the world’s best-selling roadster, which should come as no surprise, particularly when one considers its dazzling sports car good looks. This convertible is an absolute joy to drive too. Actually, there are plenty of reasons why so many motorists have fallen head over heels in love with the MX-5, and a seven-year warranty is far from the top of the list.

​Design

It’s hard to think of a better car than the MX-5 when it comes to drop-top driving. Whenever the sky is blue and the sun is shining bright, you just need to pull back the vehicle’s cloth roof to take full advantage of the weather. The car rides on lightweight, stylish 16-inch alloy wheels as standard, which only add to the MX-5’s allure. Open one of two doors to discover a high-quality two-seat cabin – the perfect place to spend some quality motoring with a good friend or significant other. The driver’s seat angles backwards or forwards and the steering wheel is reach-adjustable, making it easy to establish a comfortable position. 

​Technology and safety

The MX-5 comes with automatic air conditioning and power-operated windows as standard. A six-speaker sound system features, complete with DAB digital radio, FM/AM tuner and MP3-compatible CD player, each of which can be operated via steering wheel-mounted controls. Thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth, you can also stream music and make and receive hands-free phone calls. Another welcome feature is a seven-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system that is voice-activated, making it easy to fine-tune your route as you go, without needing to take your eyes off the road.

A wide range of safety equipment is included as standard, such as multiple airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System and i-ACTIVSENSE. The latter features Blind Spot Monitoring, among other things, which uses sensors to discern the presence of vehicles on the driver’s side that might otherwise go undetected

Performance

A standard-issue 1.5-litre 132bhp petrol engine allows the MX-5 to proceed from 0-60mph in a shade more than eight seconds. It also manages a 44.8mpg combined figure and CO2 emissions from 143g/km. For even greater potency, choose the GT Sport Nav+ trim level. This is powered by a 2.0-litre 184bhp petrol unit that delivers a peak torque of 205Nm, enabling the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 6.3 seconds.
