It’s an oldie, but a goodie. Roadster fans everywhere tend to rejoice each time Mazda reveals their updated pocket rocket.
So, what’s new?
The Mazda MX-5 gets a ground up redesign for 2016. Now in its fourth generation, the MX-5 Miata has been charming buyers with its no frills approach to fun since the late 1980s. The newest MX-5 keeps with tradition by focusing on agility, lightness and a fun driving experience over all else. The Miata has always been one of the purest driving experiences available and this newest iteration is no different.
What stood out after driving it?
Tossable handling; sharp styling; convertible top; easy on the wallet; good fuel economy. Zero competitors.
But wait, there’s more!
Part of the charm of the MX-5 has always been its low cost of entry and the 2016 model continues the tradition of attainable fun. With a base price below $25,000, the MX-5 Miata undercuts rivals such as the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BR-Z (neither of which have a drop-top, by the way). The Miata is also one of the least expensive convertibles on the market.
Okay, how much?
