5 reasons to buy the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

1. Sports car performance

If you're looking for a two-seat roadster that prioritizes pure fun, don't miss the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata. This thrilling sports car offers an intimate driving experience that allows you to feel at one with the road. The 2.0L four-cylinder engine produces 181 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, providing plenty of power and revs all the way to its 7,500-rpm redline. And, true to its sports car nature, manual transmission is standard on the MX-5 Miata, though automatic transmission is available. Weighing just over 2,300 lbs., the svelte Miata drives like a dream, whether you're a casual driver or a track enthusiast.

2. Three well-equipped trims

The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata is available in three well-equipped trims: Sport, Club, and Grand Touring. Standard features on the base Sport trim include a height-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth® capability, and a six-speaker sound system with HD Radio. Opting for the Club trim gets you a nine-speaker Bose® audio system (with speakers in the headrests) and satellite radio. You'll also get standard driver aids like a rearview camera and cruise control on all trims, plus blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert on the Club and Grand Touring trims.

3. User-friendly convertible top

If you're looking for open-roof driving, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata delivers. You'll love the manually retractable convertible top, which you can easily open from inside the car within a few seconds. In fact, the black-cloth soft-top is so light and rigid, you can even operate it with one hand or from one side of the car. That way, you can quickly drop the top to suit your mood or the weather. Want to enjoy top-down vibes even when the outdoor air is chilly? Opt for the Club or Grand Touring trims, which have heated seats.

4. Good fuel economy

While sports cars are not typically known for their fuel economy, the Miata stands out from the pack. With the 2.0L four-cylinder engine, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata has an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, for a combined 30 mpg—a frugal figure for a sports car.

That way, you can spend more time cruising the open road than sitting at the pump.

5. 30th Anniversary package

If you like the Miata, you'll love the 30th Anniversary package, available on 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring models. This special edition features a Racing Orange exterior, complemented by gunmetal gray wheels. Inside the car, you'll find orange accents and faux-suede RECARO® sport seats, which are comfortable and supportive. This model also has Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capability, so you can rock out to your favorite tunes wherever the road takes you.
