2011 Mazda MX5 Miata Review - All of the virtues and none of the vices of the original Miata
It's been a long time since a car has made us spontaneously giggle like an
excited child, but the Mazda MX-5 managed to evoke that reaction within 15
seconds of climbing in the driver's seat. Having spent time in previous
iterations, we approached the newest MX-5 with some ambivalence.

2012 Mazda Miata MX-5 Convertible Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/mx-5-miata/2012/?id=32972 The Mazda MX-5 is
the one true sports car that has lasted the test of time. The recipe for
success was written ling ago: convertible top, sport scar design, engine up
front, and rear wheel drive. The 2012 Mazda Miata MX-5 carries on the
torch. Sure there are cars like the BMW Z4 or the Porsche Boxster but those
cost twice as much!
The 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata starts at $23,470 with the top of the line Grand
Touring costing $30,050. What's cool about the MX-5 is that you can get
this hot little roadster with a convertible that is either a soft top or a
hard top. The 2012 Mazda MX-5 is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine
that makes 158 horsepower and 140 lb-ft. of
torque. You may be thinking that the Miata MX-5 is underpowered, but the
engine has more than enough grunt to move the ultra light vehicle weight of
Really the 2012 Mazda MX-5 is the closest you can get to real track
performance at this price. And even though the MX-5 was tuned for the
track, the convertible rides very well on regular roads. The engine is
responsive and the steering is quick. Take one for a test drive and you
will be hooked.

2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
MAZDA UNVEILS MX-5 MIATA SPECIAL EDITION AT CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
Limited-run model conveys luxurious side of the world's most-beloved
CHICAGO (February 9, 2011) -- On the heels of its recent milestone
announcement of 900,000 MX-5 Miatas being produced, Mazda North American
Operations (MNAO) today unveiled the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition, a
limited-run model of only 750 units. The Special Edition continues the
MX-5's history of being a dynamically-engineered, enthusiast-approved
roadster whose price doesn't discriminate and whose luxuries are not
Special Edition-exclusive interior touches include gray door trim and
heated leather seats with gray stitching, a black leather-wrapped parking
brake and steering wheel with contrasting gray stitching, chrome treatments
to the air vents and instrument cluster as well as aluminum pedals (6MT
only). Special Edition models are only available in Sparkling Black Mica or
Dolphin Gray Mica, two new MX-5 colors, and are packaged with 17-inch
Bright Finish aluminum alloy wheels.
The MX-5 traditionally has appealed to higher income households as its
purchase reason is not as the practical daily driver but as the additional
"fun" car, such as for those long, winding road-hunting weekends.
Originally available in three trim levels -- Sport, Touring and Grand
Touring -- the Special Edition is based off of a fully-equipped Grand
Touring model but is only available with the industry-leading, easy-to-use
Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT).
Popular in both warm and winter climates, PRHT models go from
rain-deflector to sun-worshipper in 12 seconds -- with trunk space to boot
-- and outsell soft tops 4:1 worldwide. In the United States, there also is
no lack of interest for premium accessories as 70 percent of Grand Touring
models sold are PRHT-equipped, of which 50 percent are optioned with the
Premium Package. The Premium Package is standard on the Special Edition and
includes a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system, SIRIUS® Satellite Radio
with a six-month complimentary subscription, Xenon headlights, Dynamic
Stability Control (DSC) with a Traction Control System (TCS), an anti-theft
alarm and the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System.
It is no secret that on any given weekend more Mazdas and Mazda-powered
vehicles are road-raced than any other brand. Performance and tuning are
dynamically engineered into every Mazda and the MX-5 Miata Special Edition
retains its sports car soul but with a few niceties not meant for the
bumper-to-bumper love taps of the track.
