Mazda MX-5 Miata
Base MSRP: $25,295
The Miata is the most successful 2-seater sports cars of all time — according to the folks at Guinness World Records. Since the launch of the first Miata in 1989, more than 1 million MX-5s have been sold worldwide. True to the original premise, the Miata is impressively lightweight, nimble and fun to drive. The latest-generation Mazda MX-5 went on sale in summer 2015, sending power to the rear wheels via a 155-horsepower SKYACTIV- G 2.0-liter engine teamed with a standard SKYACTIV-MT 6-speed manual transmission. In addition to the manual soft-top, Mazda has also introduced the MX-5 RF (retractable fastback). With a power-folding hardtop that can open or close in 13 seconds, the RF features a fastback coupe design that stays in place, even with the roof stowed.
