It's a cute little convertible still lots of room, I'm only 5'1 and it's nice for short people too like me ... trunk space is nice, I feel safe in it , def lots of Turing of heads with people checking it out ... Great gas mileage

Overall a 10 on the fun meter. Not the most comfortable car, not the fastest car and not the quietest car, but it is quick and without a doubt the best handling car on the road. No cruise control offered, lower gas mileage than non-turbo Miatas, no boost gauge, no grill to protect the intercooler and a 6 speed that should be a 5 speed, but none of those matters. Once you strap this car on all you think about is putting it through its paces. The Lava Orange Mica color is radiant. This car is a true roadster.
There's nothing like a roadster for excellent cornering and maneuvering, but I believe the Miata to be the best roadster I've driven. Had a Toyota MR2 Spyder prior to this, which I dearly loved, but the Miata is more refined - the steering and braking are like glue on velvet.
In terms of comfort, this car is a great fit for a short/petite person like me. All the controls are easily within reach and I never feel cramped. Dashboard is great - traditional yet sporty - none of that crazy futuristic stuff.
With major road bumps, you'll hear loud bangs inside the cabin, but you will also notice that road bumps will not bounce you or sway you in this car, like in other cars. It handles dips in the road with unbelievable stability.
