The Mazda MX-5 is an iconic and bestselling two-seater sports roadster. Its popularity and long- standing status has made it the centre of attention for a number of different reviews which focus in particular on the sublime handling and fun factor. This analysis from iNews is no different, quoting seven specific reasons why the Mazda MX-5 has been named their ‘favourite convertible car’.

1.Fun factor

Whatever the weather, the ‘nippy and playful’ MX-5 is able to serve up the ‘fun factor by the bucketload’.

2.Sublime handling

The rear-wheel drive and stiff suspension give the Mazda MX-5 impressive handling which rolls less through bends.


Although the car looks very compact from the outside, the lower and well-designed driving position means it is comfortable for even the tallest of drivers. The boot is rather roomy too!


The MX-5 is very well designed, a result of Mazda’s reputation for reliability and dependability. Therefore both the inside and outside are built with quality in mind. If anything does go wrong, however, a three-year warranty will see you right.


The Mazda MX-5 is very competitive in terms of price and when you add this to the other factors within this review, it is a very easy decision to make.


All apart from the SE cars ‘get the Mazda MZD Connect seven-inch touchscreen’. The iNews personal favourite is the SE-L trim ‘which has climate and cruise control, LED running lights, Bluetooth and DAB’.


‘Perhaps the most compelling reason for picking an MX-5 is the sheer heritage the famous sports car boasts’. Mazda has sold over one million MX-5s and this model has come a long way since its launch almost 30 years ago.
