Advice need for buying a used MX-5

I am considering buying a used Mazda MX-5 and have two options: A 2014 Mazda MX-5 2.0i Powershift for £15,950 with 23,000 miles on the clock or a 2013 model for £16,750 with 7600 miles on the clock. I am concerned with the relatively low mileage on the older car. Would this be an issue with a car of this type.

I'd go for the newer, cheaper car. Makes no sense to go for the older one for more money that may not have had annual services. MX5 automatics are actually quite rare. 'Powershift' does not mean the same as a Ford/Getrag twin clutch Powershift. In the Mazda it's a torque converter auto.
