by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on February 29, 2016
The EPA says the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata should get 30 mpg combined. That's wildly impressive for a performance-oriented car, even one as dainty and modestly powered as the Miata.
And yet, in January, our long-termer improved by one full mpg to cross the 30 mpg barrier. We're now averaging 30.6 mpg and it's not like we're not having any fun, either.
