The Class of 2014
Got your diary handy? Because this year is going to be very busy indeed... everything from LaFerrari to tiny superminis

Mazda MX-5 (TG render)
What is it? New MX-5 is being produced as a joint venture with Alfa Romeo, with the 237bhp, 1.75-litre turbo Alfa Spider due in late 2015. The MX-5 looks good: 1,000kg, 6spd manual, RWD and a 1.6-litre, 130bhp SkyActiv motor. Under £20k, too.
Should I be interested? Yes. If Mazda can keep the weight down, then the MX-5 will claw back ground lost to the GT86/BRZ in the RWD/fun-to-drive/reasonable-money arena.
