    Mazda MX-5

    THE MX-5 is a legend. From its launch in 1989 it has offered driving fun clothed in a stylish, two-seater roadster format. The new version builds on that simple recipe, only with more aggressive styling and more power. On sale in September, the MX-5 will be available with 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol power – the latter offering 165bhp which should give the little Mazda the performance to match its looks.


    IT’S a user-choosers’ favourite, and now the MINI range is improved. On sale this month, the range gets more equipment including a CD player and passenger airbag deactivation. The diesel-engined One D version also gets a 20% power hike to 88bhp and now meets Euro IV emissions requirements. Unfortunately, prices also rise across the range, with the One D up by 4.7% and the rest of the range by an average of 2%.
