Few vehicles have established their own unique platform quite the way the Mazda MX-5 Miata has. It has the slick good looks, spirited ride, and driving dynamics of a muscle car, but was engineered to be lightweight for a less powerful engine and a more efficient drivetrain. It’s also significantly more affordable than most sports cars on the market. All of these factors come together to make a car that has drawn the attention - and veneration - of Miata enthusiasts all across the United States and elsewhere (where it’s called the MX-5 Roadster).
Here’s the low-down. The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a two-seater, rear-wheel drive convertible that gets up to 36 mpg on the highway* and is equipped with a manual transmission for maximum driving thrills. At a starting MSRP under $25k, you really can’t find another car that handles like the MX-5 Miata for a competitive price, and the 2017 model year sees the introduction of a cool new hard top model.
What’s more is that the Mazda MX-5 Miata was entirely redesigned for the 2016 model year, so for 2017, this sports car still a bright and shiny new generation, with the latest in innovative powertrain upgrades and interior technology.
