2007 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring 2dr Convertible w/Power Hard Top (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
The MX-5 with power hard top draws a lot of interest. The top works easily and I don't notice the extra weight. The trunk space isn't compromised either. With the top up, however, there is a huge blind spot on your left side so adjust the mirrors carefully. I'm six foot three and I fit comfortably. The copper red mica is attractive without screaming "look at me". The engine is willing and scoots quickly. The transmission shifts lightly, but even with the 6 speed, it seems like it needs another gear when cruising on the freeway.
The advantage of a hard top. It's quiet, seals well against moisture, and adds one more measure of security.
Incorporate a window design like the old British three window to remove the blind spot.
