Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mazda Miata MX5 Convertible

This is one of the most fun cars on the road for under $30,000 capable of 28 mpg on the highway. Great handling, solid performance and an excellent standard equipment list pack a lot of car into the diminutive 2-seater.

What's new for 2012?

The MX-5 Miata is nearly unchanged for 2012. The Special Edition has been dropped, but everything else you already love about the MX-5 Miata-- two seats, peppy handling, rear-wheel drive, an easy-to fold roof, a low price tag -- is still in place.

Model Strengths

  • Roadster fun without a hefty price tag
  • great gas mileage for a sports car
  • available retractable hard top

Model Review

The Miata's 2.0L 4-cylinder engine can be mated to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed manual for 167 hp, or a 6-speed sport automatic transmission for 158 hp. Don't be fooled by what seem like small numbers--the MX-5's diminutive size and weight means it's going to be plenty fast.
