We’re encouraged to think of the MX-5 as a stripped back driver’s car by a lot of these special editions and concepts but Mazda’s roadster can get pretty luxurious too. The MX-5 Sport Graphite edition was a case in point with leather heated seats, a TomTom sat-sav and full Bluetooth integration.
The Mazda MX-5 is a modern motoring icon, a two-seater, open-topped sports car with an overriding focus on fun.
Through three generations and 25 years, the MX-5 has wormed its way into the hearts of millions, whether as an inexpensive route to rear-wheel-drive handling purity or as a simple, pretty roadster in the classic vein.
