That said, the MX-5 Convertible is a small car, and taller drivers might have an issue with that. When the roof is up, they’ll feel a bit squashed. Worse still, the steering wheel doesn’t offer much adjustment, which will make it hard to get comfy.
That said, everyone will appreciate how swanky the dashboard is. It’s so much better than previous models, with Mazda finally bringing life to the dash with better, brighter plastics. Look hard enough and you’ll still spot low-rent materials, too. But it’s a massive improvement overall.
In terms of how practical it is … well, what did you expect? It’s a two-seater sports car. That said, it is more usable than most rivals. It’s got a fair amount of interior space, the doors open wide for easy access, and the boot measures 130-litres. It’s not excessively big, but there’s enough room for a few weekend bags. It’s also pretty deep.
Other than that, storage space is few and far between. There isn’t even a glove box.
