Description and Review

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is wonderful sports car that you can buy that will make your driving fun and engaging.

Exterior

If you happen to go shopping for a Mazda MX-5 Miata, you will have two options.  You can obtain the customary edition with the top-notch convertible, or you will get the RF model, named for its strength retractable fastback roof.

Not surprisingly, a lot of people are possibly drawn towards RF simply just for its looks. It truly is a beautiful sports car, the roof-line and rear window are similar to the 1968-1977 Chevrolet Corvette.

Miata RF seems most desirable when the roof panels are tuck away which gives it a sharper and more impressive look.

Interior

Inside, the Miata contains a tachometer flanked by a speedometer and also a multi-function gauge as well as a driver-information display. Polished aluminum trim and accents together with three air vents and three climate control knobs decorate the cabin and give it a stylish look.

However, the Miata is designed to seat two people and its interior storage and trunk are not really impressive.  There isn’t any glove box. As a substitute, a locking storage bin is integrated into the back wall on the cabin between the seats which can hold an assortment of objects. A smartphone tray sits below the local climate controls.  The cup holder clips to the center console and impeding the passenger legroom.

Performance

The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder stays clean and refined.  It will make 26 horsepower at 1,000 rpm (181 hp) combined with a redline that’s 700 rpm better than before.

The Miata is only available in rear-wheel drive. The Miata MX-5 with the automatic transmission has a fuel economy rating of 26/35 mpg city/highway. Models with the manual transmission have a fuel economy rating of 26/34 mpg city/highway.

The MX-5 Miata is offered in three trim models: Activity, Club and Grand Touring. A soft-top roof is standard for Miata. Mazda also offers the MX-5 Miata RF, which comes along with a strength hardtop and is available in Club and Grand Touring trims. A six-speed guide transmission is customary but you can opt in for the six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

Technological innovation

The Mazda Miata is known as a moderately low-tech sports car. Nevertheless, it does offer useful technologies that make driving pretty enjoyable such as a rearview camera, push-button start, a six-speaker audio system and the Mazda Connect infotainment with a 7-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, two USB ports and Bluetooth.  The options consist of a satellite radio along with a Bose surround-sound audio strategy with nine speakers including a subwoofer as well as driver and passenger mounted speakers.

Safety

To prevent mishaps, the Miata comes with additional driver-assistance and collision-avoidance devices such as a reversing camera and Smart City Brake Support system with low-speed automatic emergency braking.  However, the factors that determine vehicle basic vehicle safety are crashworthiness and auto weight.  Generally speaking, heavier automobiles are safer in collisions, especially collisions with a lighter vehicle. Since the MX-5 Miata weighs not more than 2,493 pounds, it does not take a lot of guesswork to ascertain that you never wish to get into an accident with this featherweight Mazda, most definitely when the other motor vehicle is a truck or an SUV.  If safety is at the top of your checklist, you don’t want a Miata.

Nevertheless, if you want a sport car that make your driving fun and enjoyable with the least amount of money spent, then Mazda MX-5 Miata is definitely the one for you.
