Pricewatch: Mazda MX-5 Convertible v Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe

THE hard-top on Mazda’s Roadster doesn’t appear to have affected handling or performance, and has added security and protection, as well as not taking up much more room than the cloth top.

CAP reckons the Roadster will be worth £700 more used than the standard model, although it costs £1,700 more new.

The question is this: even though it loses more in total than the soft-top, is that extra £1,000 cash lost worth it for its extra practicality during its fleet life?
