The most fun I have had in years

Driving this car is the most fun I have had in year. Especially in nice weather and take the top down.


  • Ride and Handling: drives like a dream
  • Technology and Entertainment: has Car Play
  • Fuel Economy: great


  • Cabin Noise: It is a convertible so a bit noisy
  • Cargo Space: A very small car
  • Interior Space: A very small car

Too much fun

Not a powerhouse, but quick and run on rails in the corner. Top down in a couple seconds and my attitude improves immediately. So much fun. Haven’t enjoyed driving this much since I was 16.


  • Ride and Handling: Like driving a go cart in the corners. Can’t wait for track days starting this spring.
  • Styling: Love the ND body design. By far my favorite Miata body style ever.
  • Braking: Upgraded Brimbo brakes. Stops on a dime.

Best stupid decision I’ve ever made!

Absolute drivers car! You feel connected to the road with great throttle and brake response. It was definitely a stupid purchase since I live on a mountain with lots of snow, but I have no regrets. This car WILL put a smile on your face, everyone you drive it.


  • Ride and Handling: Handles like it’s ready for the track
  • Styling: Aggressive exterior, surprisingly refined interior in the top package
  • Power: Tiny little 2.0 gets the job done. Enough power to push you back in the seat, not so much that it’s scary.


  • Cabin Noise: Duh, it’s a convertible
  • Interior Space: Another duh, don’t expect much in the way of storage. I’m 6’1” and fit comfortably though. Unique cup holders, you can move them to free up passenger leg room
  • Visibility: Tons of blind spots with the top up. Backup sensors, blind spot sensors and lane departure sensors help though
