The Mazda MX-5 may not be perfect, but it more than makes up for any blemishes with its excitement, charisma and fun drive.
CAR magazine got to grips with Mazda’s award winning Mazda MX-5 in their extensive long-term review, referring to the 2016 model as an ‘utterly brilliant car’ putting you, the driver, ‘more in touch with the process and physics of the driving experience.’
It’s not a car to be gentle with, as you are constantly reminded and encouraged to really test this automotive beast. The publication states: ‘The little 1.5-litre engine needs to be walloped unremittingly from key turn to switch off’ and that it is ‘your petrol-hearted duty to make sure you’re constantly making the most of the 1000rpm headroom over the faster but less enthusiastic 2.0-litre alternative.’
The beauty of the car is there for all to see, and this doesn’t dwindle with age. This combined with the Mazda MX-5’s charm, elegance and enjoyment make it an unrelenting yet pleasurable experience for any driver.
