I'm five foot and have the greatest visibility I've ever had with any car in the Miata. Has strong headlights, amazing steering, quick and easy to put the top down (at a traffic light. The Miata is small, elegant and always smiling. Greatest car ever and would recommend it to anyone who is under 6'2".
It has strong headlights, and easy to put down top, accelerates quickly, nice short shift for manual.
To make the Miata handle even better get stiffening bars.
