The Mazda MX-5 Miata, the world’s best-selling sports car, is even more of a joy to drive in 2019 thanks to its 26 extra horsepower. Available as a roadster or a coupe with a retractable roof panel, this affordable rear-wheel-drive 2-seater competes with the Fiat 124 (which shares its platform), Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.
New Features and Revisions
Big news: Mazda has extracted an extra 26 horsepower from the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. What’s more, the redline has been raised from 6,800 rpm to 7,500 rpm, thanks in part to lighter pistons and connecting rods. Also new: a tilt steering wheel (standard) and a brown soft top (optional).
