2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Everyone knows the Mazda MX-5 Miata is a fun car to drive, but now it’s official! Cars.com has named this best-selling roadster of all time the 2017 Play Car of the Year in its annual awards program! Each year, a team of experts from the Cars.com editorial staff tests entrants to see how they stack up in terms of value, quality, and innovation. The results are invaluable for consumers in the research and decision-making process.

Mazda Innovations

The Cars.com judges found that the Mazda MX-5 Miata excels in a number of areas. Its innovative design incorporates a front engine with rear-wheel drive, while the weight distribution is balanced throughout the car. It’s also lightweight, giving it an exhilaration not found in heavier cars, and the fact that it’s a convertible is an added bonus. They loved the fact that the Mazda MX-5 Miata a blast to drive, and that its affordable price tag makes it a strong value.

Standout Qualities

The Mazda MX-5 Miata offers a long list of advantages that make it stand out from the rest of the pack. First off, its starting price of $24,915* makes it accessible for mainstream drivers. How often can you get a high-end, sporty driving experience at a realistic price tag?

The Mazda MX-5 Miata also has an option for a sport suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers and a torque-sensing limited-slip differential. This is available at the Club trim level and offers enhanced stability and handling during pure sport driving.

A recent redesign made the Mazda MX-5 Miata shorter and lower, and it also resulted in a much lighter, smaller, but roomier car. The manual top is a dream to open and close, and there’s just nothing like riding in its open-air cabin. And with all the modern luxuries drivers expect like available leather seating, adaptive LED headlights, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alerts, this roadster is everything and more.

The available trim options are the MX-5 Sport, Club, and Grand Touring for the soft top models, and the new 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RF offers a retractable fastback.
