The Mazda MX-5 was once a far more affordable car, but over recent years its price has crept higher and higher: the current model sets buyers back almost $50,000 on the road.

For the uninitiated, the F-Type's boot is largely occupied by its spare wheel, making for an awkward 196-litre capacity that is split on either side of the central spare (see below)...
