Here's a sidebar to Warren's 10 Memorable Steering Wheels list on our Straightline blog: I have always liked-loved the steering wheel in our Mazda 2 (left). It's not identical to the wheel in the MX-5 Miata (right), but it's the same idea and feels pretty much the same, which is to say good.

It helps that we have a Touring model, which gets a standard leather wrapping, but beyond that, I like the positioning of the spokes on this wheel. Whether you do 9-and-3, 10-and-2 or 4-and-8 with your hands, it's going to work out fine with this steering wheel. That's definitely not the case on some other cars in this price range.
