MX-5 GT Convertible – Occasionally when I am testing cars, I get lucky. Sometimes we get a convertible like the Mazda MX-5 and the weather is beautiful.
So, it was on a sunny Easter weekend that we lowered the convertible top in the MX-5 and headed off for a drive. Sunglasses on, fresh air and the open road. Pity about the Easter traffic.
That’s what the MX-5 is all about.
The latest model now comes exclusively with the 2.0 litre engine, revised suspension settings and some cosmetic updates. There is also a choice between a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission.
Over the years it has grown a little, got a bit heavier and now has more safety, comfort and luxury features.
But the core of the MX-5 hasn’t changed since it was first released way back in 1989. The MX-5 is a two-seat rear wheel drive sports car. It’s all about driving fun and there possibly isn’t a better-balanced sports convertible around.
There are four models available, and we drove the MX-5 GT Convertible with black roof. It is priced from $54,892 plus the usual costs.
In a rapidly changing automotive world, sports cars like the Mazda MX-5 are special.

Sports Convertibles are rare, especially at this price range. So you have to look further afield to more conventional sports cars.
