1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata: More Room Inside Than You Might Think

August 20, 2010


The seat is tearing apart and the pedal covers are falling off, so why did I enjoy driving the Miata so much last night?

The light traffic on Sunset certainly helped, but it was mostly because I found that this two-seater is shockingly comfortable for my 6'2" frame. I don't even have to put the seat back all the way. The spacious foot box helps too as you're not forced to constantly shift around to keep your feet properly aligned.

Yes, getting in and out is a bit comical, but no more so than our Viper. And that car feels claustrophobic compared to the Miata. Never would have guessed that from the outside.
