Mazda MX-5 Miata Overview

The Miata soldiers on as a pure fun-to-drive roadster. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine may not be very powerful, but it revs happily and provides adequate thrust. The manual shifter on our tested Grand Touring model felt crisp and precise. Handling is super agile, with quick, precise steering, and the Miata is balanced at its limits. The ride is relatively tolerable, but the car gets noisy and tiring on long rides. Interior space is extremely cramped, but the small trunk is usefully shaped. A power-retractable hard top is available, but the car is still loud with it raised. Operating the manual top is a breeze. A redesigned Miata is due in 2015 as a 2016 model.
