V2011 Mazda Miata MX-5 Special Edition
"I love this car." That is the sound of pure driving joy as Mary sped through the pine trees of the high Sierra. She had just put the hard-top roof down with the push of a button, and now was enjoying a warm summer evening drive in the 2011 Mazda Miata MX-5 Special Edition. While the sporty design and amazing sports car-like handling will surely sell a multitude of Miatas, it's the hardtop convertible feature that makes this Mazda a marvel of magnificence.. In bad weather -- or on your way to work -- you make the choice to keep the roof up so the wind doesn't mess with your carefully quaffed new "do." And when the weekend rolls around and the skies are sunny, you press a button and within just a few seconds you are topless. It could not be easier. This dual-personality Miata is also good on gas mileage, averaging just over 26 mpg split between freeway and rural roads. No doubt about it, this Miata is definitely "special."
