Additional Info: This is the Mk4 MX5 (model code ND) and is available with manual or automatic transmission. Also available is a 129 bhp 1.5 with a 0-60 time of 8.0 seconds and top speed of 127 mph. There’s also various trim levels, including a Club version with Bilstein shock absorbers, engine strut brace, LSD, Brembo brakes, larger alloys and subtle spoilers. The MX5 ND uses Mazda’s Skyactiv Technology, increasing fuel efficiency, adding lightweight components, chassis and body and is considerably lighter than its predecessor (around 100kg less).
