Mazda MX-5 2011

Editor's note: This review was written in October 2010 about the 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2011, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster is like a favorite pair of worn jeans; everything just feels right.

From the position of the shifter, pedals, steering wheel and other controls, nothing's out of place.

Few cars offer as much everyday driving fun as the Miata, and even fewer do it as inexpensively.

The Miata is available with a manual soft-top roof or a power retractable hardtop, and it's offered in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. (See a side-by-side comparison of the trims.) Our test car was a top-of-the-line Grand Touring retractable hardtop with an as-tested price of $31,300.
