While the MX-5 is a blast compared to many other cars out there, it still lacks a few key amenities. It’s disappointing to not have Bluetooth phone and audio support, while other convertibles like the VW Beetle have it in a base trim. That’s not all that’s off in the MX-5. The cup holders are shallow, and are hidden by a cover which refuses to stay open.
Hardly deal-breakers, these facts are still something to consider if the MX-5 is to be your daily driver. The dominant force in the convertible segment, it’s year-round capable, though will always leave you wanting for warmth.
