Mazda MX-5 - £5k-£8k: Best cheap convertibles

2.0 SE (2010/10 reg, 51k miles)

Best cheap convertibles - Mazda MX-5

 

However much you pay for a Mazda MX-5, you’re getting one of the most fun sports cars to drive at any price. And for £6,000, you can have a tidy Mk3 with low miles and decent kit.

Go for the soft-top – you only really need the hard-roofed Roadster Coupé if you’re paranoid about vandalism – and the larger 2.0-litre engine, because it comes with the more flexible six-speed gearbox, making the MX-5 a better all-rounder. And at this price, there’s no reason to buy a Japanese import; it will be easier to verify a UK car’s mileage and history, making it less of an unknown quantity.

Price new: £17,920
Now: £5,950
Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl, 158bhp
Economy: 38.2mpg
Euro NCAP: N/A
