Small car, small space
First and foremost, the MX-5 is a little car. At 6”1, I just about reach the limits of the MX-5s headroom, and occasionally find myself rubbing elbows with passengers. Leg-room too is a concern, with passengers wondering aloud why there’s a huge bulge in the floor where their legs should go.
Cargo space is also a worry for those who like to stay prepared. With just 5.3 cu. ft. of cargo space, the trunk may fit a few groceries but it certainly won’t accommodate a shovel (maybe a kids one?) in case the little guy gets buried.
