2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Happy Birthday

By KBB.com Editors on February 11, 2009 3:25 PM
The Mazda MX-5 Miata celebrated its 20th birthday at the very site of its figurative birth: the Chicago Auto Show. Changes for 2009 include a freshened face that more closely resembles those of the newest RX-8 and MAZDA3 (and now CX-7, too), an increase in horsepower of exactly one (accompanied by an unspecified increase in fuel economy), revised suspension tuning and interior enhancements. Happy birthday, little roadster we still like to call Miata, you'll forever be one of the all-time greats.
