The Top Gear car review:Mazda MX-5
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
The styling may have a new found edge of aggression (we’re not sure about those squinty headlights), but the cabin is just great. It’s the quality and ergonomics that strike you first. The way things are so easy to operate, and sited where you expect to find them. The seats are comfy, the boot is surprisingly deep, the headlights are strong, the sat nav (if you option it) is intuitive and there’s more space in the cockpit than you expect. It even feels well screwed together from materials you don’t mind touching. It’s a real step forward, especially when you start choosing the contrasting colour schemes and trim materials of the Sport.
