Maybe after a few years.
But a 1.5 with 120 bhp wouldn't be a bad thing in a car weighing less than 1000 kilos. It's a roadster, it's about handling not raw power.

Evo guy at the motor show reckons it's a choice situation, so that's pretty choice.

Well, you are speaking to a chap who bought a 120-odd bhp rear wheel drive roadster instead of 150-plus bhp hot hatch just because of that.

Nevertheless, choice is good.

And power is good too.

Mazda UK has apparently confirmed they are getting both the 2 litre and the 1.5. I guess it'll be the same all over Europe.

First reviews are in. This one is from CAR.

Mazda MX-5 1.5 (2015) review | Road Testing Reviews | Car Magazine Online


It has a 1.5 litre 130bhp engine, weights a ton, has a limited slip diff and drives superbly.

Now I want one.

Oh, by the way, there will also be a 155bhp 2 litre eventually.

Oh and also, they actually are testing them around here because I saw a white one driving one last week.

That was exactly the one I saw, rocking about the Catalan hills.

Damn right! If BTUs aren't the units of fun, I don't know what are.

I am aching to drive one. As soon as they start showing up in dealers, I must try one out.
