Miata is one of the biggest selling roadster on the planet. It offers refined engine performance and poised handling, as well as a comfortable and upscale interior with lots of standard features.
New for 2020, the MX-5 gains Mazda‘s i-ACTIVSENSE suite of standard driver assists, which includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning.
The Club and Grand Touring trims gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the Grand Touring with the manual transmission inherits the Club’s limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, shock tower brace and sport suspension.
Miata is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine good for 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. This power is significant for a car that only weighs a ton.
Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy estimates for the 6-speed manual are 26 miles per gallon in the city, 34 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in combined driving. The 6-speed automatic with manual paddle-shift control comes in at 26 mpg city/35 mpg hwy/30 mpg combined.
The Miata comes standard with anti-lock disc brakes, electronic traction and stability control. Every Miata comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity (for both phone and streaming-audio functions), as well as a CD player. Navigation is standard on the Grand Touring.
