2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Best Sports Car | 2019 Edmunds Editors’ Choice


[MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER:
Sports cars should be all about making you feel good. Our Edmunds editor’s
choice for 2019 had a subtle refresh
last year that made a simple, trusted formula
even more compelling. It’s the Mazda MX-5 Miata. [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: In a world of
ever-quicker 0 to 60 times, the refreshingly
pure Mazda Miata highlights the most important
attribute of a sports car– fun. Miatas have always
been available with a clever and
quick-folding soft top. But the power-retractable
hard top on this RF model adds a measure of
security and style. Frankly, we’d take either roof. ELANA SCHERR: The Miata
remains as nimble as ever. It’s an automotive tiny dancer. The updated and higher-revving
2-liter engine is delightful. And the manual shifter is so
good you’ll change gears just for the joy of it. But the best thing
about the Miata is that unlike most
high-performance sports cars, it doesn’t require a
racetrack to do its thing. You can have a blast in a Miata
without risking your license. JONATHAN ELFALAN: With prices
starting just above $26,000, it remains a good value. And it’s relatively
inexpensive to upkeep, too. Sure, there are faster,
more complex sports cars. But few, if any, are more fun. ALISTAIR WEAVER:

  1. Awesome little sports car, that I would probably own if it wasn't for 2 major issues:

    1) I cannot sit in it properly with my 6'3"
    2) the price incl tax of 43.000 euro (+/- 48.000 USD) in my country

    A shame really.. :

  2. The last proper, cheap sports car. A noticeably better vehicle than the still good 86/BRZ. Can't wait for my 2019 to arrive, and glad I held out for the revised engine.
