Craig takes a trip to the Cotswolds to test drive a selection of cars by Mazda, including the CX5, Mazda 6 and the MX5
After arriving in the Cotswolds on a cold, dark and wet evening, I have to admit that I wasn’t thrilled by the prospect of driving a range of Mazda’s cars around the countryside. However as morning broke, it was clear that our day was going to be blessed with sunshine. What a perfect day for a test drive!
The Mazda MX5
I’m not going to bang on about how great the MX5 is as I’ve already cover it in a previous post. However as it was there it would be terribly rude not to take the opportunity to drop the roof and take it out for a spin. Unlike the Soul red version that I discussed previously this pale grey variation has a soft top, which unlike the RF hard top has to be dropped manually. Not a huge effort admittedly but more effort than simply pressing a button on the dashboard!
Also, this was the 1.5L rather than the 2L that I drove previously, and it was instantly different to drive as it had way less pull than it’s gutsier sister. It’s still a great drive however and there’s nothing better than flying around the countryside, roof down in the autumn sun.
The Mazda MX5 can be yours for around £18,795
