One of the most iconic and recognizable coupes in the world is the Mazda Miata. Otherwise known as the Mazda MX-5 Miata, this car has the look, specs, and feel of a modern sports car. The Miata's small frame is one of its signature features. The two-seater has been a revolutionary sports car for a generation and the 2017 model is more advanced than any of the previous ones.
Despite its small size, the Miata packs a punch under the hood. The base engine option is a four-cylinder that produces 155 horsepower. We will get into more details below. The Miata comes in three trim levels whose starting prices differ by a few thousand dollars. Again, we will explain more details later. Perhaps the biggest plus for the new Miata is its style. One look at it should be enough to make you want to take a seat behind the wheel.
The same engine that is briefly described above is found under the hood of each of the three trims. The Sport, Club, and Grand Touring all show off a 2.0-liter I4 engine that gets 155 horsepower, which is a very impressive amount of "umph" considering the Miata's compact stature. Each trim comes with the options of a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed stick shift. The Miata only comes with a rear-wheel drivetrain and it averages up to 35 highway MPG.
Starting at an MSRP of $26,395, the Miata is one of the best-valued purchases you can make. The Club trim comes in at $29,530 while the Grand Touring starts at $31,270. Considering the Miata's reputation for durability, efficiency, and style, the starting costs are lower than those of competitors. Different available add-ons like Mazda Navigation, Bose audio, and SiriusXM can all make your ride more immersive but they will also come at a bit of an extra cost.
Speaking of those features, the 2017 MX-5 Miata is more than a sporty, fast car. Even the base Sport trim contains plenty of technological perks like advanced keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, and phone and audio streaming. Standard features on the Grand Touring include Pandora radio integration, MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment, voice recognition, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The Miata is the epitome of compact sports cars and it also features some of today's most advanced technologies.
