2016 Mazda MX-5
Price: Starting at $24,915
The most successful convertible of all time, Mazda’s MX-5 roadster (aka the Miata) has never had an abundance of power, but makes the most of it with sheer driving enjoyment. Mazda has produced more than one million MX-5s over the last 27 years, and the all-new fourth generation went on sale last summer. The 2016 MX-5 gets motivation from a 155-horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine combined with a standard SKYACTIV-MT 6-speed manual transmission. The 2016 MX-5 incorporates Mazda SKYACTIV technology for improved performance and more efficiency, and adopts the KODO—Soul of Motion design to bring a modern look to the classic roadster. The new MX-5 is approximately 150 pounds lighter than its predecessor, making it lightweight, nimble and fun to drive.
