The Top Gear car review:Mazda MX-5
Running costs and reliability
No headaches here either. We got 50mpg on a gentle drive, 40mpg everywhere else. For a sports car, that’s little short of remarkable. The 2.0-litre is thirstier, but only costs £850 more to buy. It’ll hold its value well, be cheap to run and insure and while emissions of 139g/km aren’t exceptionally low, an annual tax bill of only £130 isn’t too alarming.
