The Mazda MX5: The Best Two Door Sports Car Ever?


Share this article


The granddaddy of the two door sports car, the Mazda MX5 has been around for over 25 years. The latest model comes with a retractable fastback roof and a slightly tweaked harder look.

There are two engines to choose from, a 1.5 and a 2.0-litre, both come with a six-speed manual gearbox. The 2.0-litre version gets some extra equipment over the 1.5, like a limited-slip differential, which boosts traction out of corners.

So, why would you buy a car with only two doors, a tiny boot and no glove box? Well we found out up the Dublin Mountains in the all new Mazda Mx5.
