The MX-5 feels as lively as a single-seater racer vehicle. In the Roadster Coupe, the Mazda MX5 has undergone its most radical transformation since its launch. The steering is superbly direct and quick to respond. It’s communicative, with bags of feedback through the steering wheel, providing the driver with loads of information on what the front wheels are doing. All this, and the ride is pretty good too, leaving occupants to climb out ache free. The 17 inch big wheels tend to skip over bumps, so the driver has to be careful on faster or sharper bends.
The engine options available with the MX-5 are 1.8 and 2 litre. The 1.8-litre feels a bit limp simply because the chassis can take so much more. The bigger 158bhp 2-litre is more the tag, with 0-62mph in 7.9 and a 131mph top speed. The Mazda MX5 is a car chosen by many motorists for its excellent driving experience rather than utter speed.
The Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe offers one of the most excellent driving experiences available at any cost. Plus, the MX5 driver need not compromise on reliability and comfort. Its not the hair-dressers’ car, as most of its critic goes. Fun like this hard to find.
