2010 Mazda Miata Touring Hardtop Convertible

2010 Mazda Miata Review

(4 Stars)  Possibly the greatest performance bang for the buck

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Miata is 20 years old. That's right, it was 1990 when Mazda took the classic British sports car formula and brought into the modern age, with all the reliability and technology available today. It was an immediate sensation when released. It's simply styling, affordable pricing, and go kart like handling help it to remain one of the most popular roadster in existence.

As it is a roadster, it is only a two seater. With convertible tops available in either manual soft top or power hard top. For 2010 the model is available in three trim levels. Sport, touring, and grand touring. The sport is the most basic model, essentially designed to give wind in your hair fun on a budget, while the touring and grand touring models feature increasing amounts of amenities.

Power for this pocket roadster comes from a 2.0 liter four cylinder making 167 HP. The power then goes through either a 5 or 6 speed manual transmissions. A six speed automatic transmission is available as well, but in this configuration, the engine only produces 158 HP.
