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.
WE LOVE OUR CAR

WE COULD NOT HAVE GOT A BETTER CAR IF WE HAD BOUGHT A NEW ONE OFF THE SHOW ROOM FLOOR, IT WAS JUST WHAT WE WANTED IN EVERY WAY AND EVEN BETTER THAN WE EXPECTED.
I bought my Miata as a commuter car. I wanted something safe, cost-effective, yet NOT one of those boring egg-shaped gas-savers. Keep in mind that my other car is a 2004 Range Rover so the Miata has stiff competition on my review. The car is very reliable, and so cheap to buy and run. It's saving me a lot of money on gas and handles my daily 3-hour commute (round trip) with no problem. Plus, if I ever need to sell the car, there's a ready market of Miata afficianados. I definitely recommend this car if you're looking for a fun, yet practical car.
