of course for a relaxed driving, as a car meant for a Sunday stroll beyond their possible daily use, this alternative complies with a vengeance, now, if we are looking for a driving passionate, driving more spirited…
Complies and what does not, precisely, “by the hairs”, offering a pleasant response, seeking in the upper part of the tachometer, offering a good cornering and a nice soundtrack metal, the already known feel good in the change, vibrant, hard, and short distances, this apparent agility…
Yes, the motor 1.5 a maximum power of 131 horsepower is more than enough for a sporty ride, but obviously I am not referring to that sporty ride go for the tenth, but the driving sports to pick your stretch of mountain favorite, the choice of a morning, a weekend, whatever, and return home well pleased with your car, which is able to offer.
Is fun, well fun, because with this mechanic, not lazy, not disappointed, but of course, for those who seek a little more is the alternative of 160 horsepower, the 2.0 is also a maximum power that does not assume a disbursement excessive.
The 160 horses not only offers a response more lively, it also allows you to tinker more with your behind. That is, for me, the main virtue of the 2.0 versus 1.5
If we attend to the range of Mazda MX-5 we find that between the Mazda MX-5 of 131 horsepower and 160 horses there a difference of 2,800 euros, costing 25,000 euros the first, finishing with the Style and 27.800 euros the second, with the finishing Style+, counting in the latter case, and among other details with upholstery in leather, light sensors and rain, heated seats, limited-slip differential and torsion bars. The 131 horses is more than enough yes, but the 160 horses is really tempting for this price if we take into account not only the extra power, but also the additional equipment.
Clear that the 160 horses feel more athletic, more capable. Not only has 30 horses more, also has a better set-up that includes the differential, but if you are not willing to pay 2,800 euros extra, or simply prefer gastártelos equipment the 131 horses will fulfill your cravings for a lively driving. What a nice and natural sound, what a good communion with the steering wheel and which, in addition, a good option for the day-to-day.
