  • Mazda MX-5 RF (2017 on)
    Coupe style and folding hard top. Just as good to drive as the soft-top. Available with an auto.
  • Mazda MX-5 (2015 on)
    Excellent handling makes it fun to drive. 1.5-litre model works very well on uneven UK roads. 2.0 as quick as many drivers would ever want. Well-equipped for the money.
