    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.
