So, here it is then. The new Mazda MX-5 – a car I’ve been itching to drive since the last time I saw the sun. Well, now it’s February in England, there’s still cloud and the little convertible is already splattered in mud but I couldn’t wait any longer.
The MX-5 still has novelty value for now at least. It’s turns heads – even in London when I collected it yesterday. Waspish front end and curvy lines, it looks every inch as good as I expected. Without doubt the most stylish MX-5 to date.
I’m looking forward to the next seven days but first there is one feature that isn’t a thing a beauty – the infotainment screen. It sits pert upright on the dash and simple spoils the lines of the interior.
It looks as if it should fold down into the dash but it doesn’t. It’s like an unsightly erection that won’t go away. Oh dear, what can be done about that?!
