Classic design, incredible handling,
reliable, inexpensive - the Miata is
everything that the MG tried to be and
should have been. Everything on the
car is been designed superbly, and
Mazda hasn't cut any corners in the
build quality. The car is perfect for
the person without any kids! The
reviews I've read actually prefer the
Miata to it's higher-powered rivals,
such as the Z-3 and RX-7, because of
its low weight - and the fun factor!
The handling is truly incredible. Any
lack of power is worth the trade off of
having lower weight. Plus, I find it
much more fun to shift a lot, revving
the engine into high RPMs (which the
Miata loves), rather than just rely on
the torque of a high-powered engine.
Cupholders, glass window, louder horn,
headreast speakers, trunk light, light
on the rear-view mirror. But all these
items can be added via aftermarket
parts, and I think they come stock on
the newer models.
