Model Highlights

Since Mazda introduced the Miata in 1989, the MX-5 has continued to improve with each successive generation. In 2006 Mazda redesigned the MX-5 Miata from the ground up, the second time it had done so during the car's lifespan, with an eye toward reducing weight and increasing "fun." The new MX-5 is still rear wheel drive, lightweight, and quick. And with its perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the MX-5 handles even better than before.

The car's only engine, a 2.0L four-cylinder with variable valve technology, produces 166 horsepower and 140 ft-lbs of torque. While these figures may sound slight in comparison to some of the MX-5's competitors, Mazda successfully relies on its 50/50 weight distribution and well-spaced gear ratios to ensure a spirited driving experience.

The Miata has always been a favorite for amateur racers, which is why Mazda sells the base MX-5 as a stripped-down version suitable for track use. The car comes equipped with the second generation's five-speed manual transmission, but power windows and a CD player mean the car can be driven to and from the raceway. The Sport version gains a leather-wrapped steering wheel and air conditioning.

The Touring trim adds a six-speed manual and 205/45R17 rubber on alloy wheels. Remote keyless entry and power door locks round out the convenience features. For $500, a performance package is available that includes Bilstein sport shocks and a limited slip differential. The top-of-the-line Grand Touring style provides heated leather seating and Bose speakers.

The 2007 MX-5's biggest addition for 2007, however, is a power retractable hard top. Mazda managed to execute this feature well, adding only 77 pounds to the car's weight and keeping overall cargo capacity the same as the soft-top version. It can be ordered on any trim but the base.


Model News

The Mazda MX-5 Miata was redesigned in 2006, so the 2007 model is largely unchanged in terms of technical specs and equipment. The big news for 2007 is a power retractable hard top, which increases pricing by $2,915 over its cloth top counterparts. The 3rd Generation Limited style is not available for 2007.


Value Writeup

Mazda's Miata always seems to be one of the best values in the fun-to-drive category, and the 2007 MX-5 is no exception. Its lightweight 2.0L four-cylinder engine proves once again that you don't need loads of power to have a great sports car. Further enhancing the car's appeal is the fact that it offers the most affordable power folding roof on the market.
