Mazda MX-5 2022 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda MX-5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Should I buy a used MX-5?

    The MX-5 is a great little sports car for someone looking for some fun on the road.

    The earliest ones are getting a little long in the tooth and are looking a little tired.

    Go for an NC model, that's from 2005-on, and you shouldn't go wrong. They're reliable, user-friendly, they look good, and they're great fun to drive.

    Look for a low-mileage example and avoid any that look like they might have been used in competition.

  • Best options for a fun convertible?

    The easiest question on record. Get an MX-5 and you'll have all the sunshine and fun you want. The only problem will be choosing between the 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines. Most prefer the "big-bore" engine but I like the engagement you get with the smaller one.

  • Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?

    If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.

  • Mazda MX-5, Toyota 86 or Mustang for long-time V8 driver?

    Wow, that is a major change of direction. Before you make such a change I would suggest you actually test drive each of the cars you're thinking of to see if they really suit you. The Mazda MX-5 is a two-seater and not very practical for instance. It's hard to advise you because we don't anything about what you want from the car you buy. If it was me I would probably buy the MX-5, I would have no problem with a two-seater.
