The Car Guide rating 87%(view ratings)
Now in its fourth generation, Mazda’s little roadster is at the top of its game. The MX-5 offers fun, razor-sharp handling that’s hard to beat, along with the pleasure of rowing your own gears with the standard six-speed manual transmission. The lineup includes a soft-top convertible and a power folding hardtop variant known as MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback). Under the hood, you’ll find a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that puts 181 horsepower at your disposal.
