Jeremy Clarkson (originally from the BBC’s Top Gear) highly regards the Mazda too. See his opinion of the MX5 on YouTube.

Air conditioning is standard; although, you will rarely need it if the hood is down on the car! On cooler days, the heater can supplement the cabin temperature and make a top-down cruise fun.

Luggage space

The approximate boot dimensions on the NB and NC are 1200 x 600 x 300mm (48″x23″x11″) and can take one larger or two cabin bags (preferably softside), along with some space for more smaller soft bags in the corners.

These two cabin flight cases can be fitted in the boot (truck) along with soft bags. A shelf behind the seats can be used for coats and soft bags.
