Mazda RX-8 (03-10)

Value

5 out of 5

This is an awful lot of car for the money.

Costs

4 out of 5

At 22-25mpg you make a lot of visits to the filling station. But you don't buy an RX8 for its economy. Scare stories about oil consumption have come to nothing - I've added a couple of thimbles full in the first 3,000 miles.

Performance

5 out of 5

Great handling - you can really hit those corners with confidence. Plenty of oomph under your right foot when you want it.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No problems encountered so far.

Fantastic looks - a real head-turner. And ridiculously practical for a sports coupe - it has a usable boot.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Bucket seats give great support. There's plenty of leg room in the front (I'm 6foot2) and the back has enough room for the kids. Even after a long trip, there are no aches and pains.
