Be interesting to see how small it is as i can bearely fit in and drive a MX5 as it is and I can see the lady of the house going...'thats nice lets get one of those!' lol

Agree about the comments of the front design. Not good!

Always an issue IMO. Cant think of a more femanine sports car other than the convertible barbie doll pink things! lol

I dont think any small convertible like this will ever be a 'mans' car. They tried to butch up the MX5 recently and failed imo as it is still the womens car of choice but now fewer women like it.

Yeh I agree, but my wife said she won't change her MX-5 2.0 ;D

If they slap a 2.0 litre in a smaller car she may be tempted! More BHP per ton =  ;D

I just don't get it!

The MX5 isn't exactly a big car. As said above^^, i'm only 5'10" and i think i'm about as big as can be comfortable in an MX5. I just don't see the market for this.

Unless it is the usual manufacturer ploy where they slowly make cars larger, then shoe horn a smaller model lower in the range. I'm thinking VW Polo and Fox for example. The Fox is the same size the polo was ten years ago!!
