Mazda MX-5 in Perth, Perthshire
If you want the purest driving experience, it has to be the Mazda MX-5. Designed to empower your adventures, the MX-5 sticks to the tried and tested formula of rear-wheel drive in a lightweight body. It’s incredibly sharp and responsive, and whether you choose the 1.5 Skyactiv-G engine with 132PS or the 2.0 Skyactiv-G with 184PS, you’re guaranteed smiles per mile. No other sports car comes close.
You can have a manual or automatic transmission with the 2.0 engine and the soft-top model is a classic, giving you the ability to open up the cabin to the outdoors. Trim levels include SE-L, Sport, R-Sport, Sport Tech and GT Sport Tech, with Adaptive LED headlights and a Limited Slip Differential available as standard.
The MX-5 is compact, lightweight and sleek. The soft-top is easily removable, and the cabin cocoons you in luxurious materials. GT Sport Tech models ride on 17” BBS alloy wheels and get plush Burgundy Nappa leather seat trim.
If you’re serious about performance, Sport Tech models with the 2.0 engine get a Limited Slip Differential and a sports suspension for superior handling. The MX-5 is great fun to drive whether you are caning it on a B-road or cruising.
With two seats and a soft-top roof, the MX-5 is a weekend car. It won’t win any practicality competitions, but it does have a useful 130-litre boot and a practical cabin. Sport models get keyless entry and rear parking sensors as standard.
Living with it
With its 7” touchscreen with integrated navigation and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, the MX-5 has your connectivity needs covered. Sport Tech models boast Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a reversing camera for safety.
