Fiat will bring out their own two-seater convertible next year based on the same platform as the MX-5.
The 124 Spider harks back to the 1970s and, perhaps for the first time, Mazda will have some serious competition in this sector of the market.
Personally, I prefer the looks of the Fiat – although much of the rest of the two cars is the same.
The MX-5 has long been regarded as the MGB of the new millennium. Amazingly, it serves up more passion and soul than the brilliant Porsche Boxster.
And it will cost you about half of the price too…
