Reviews, Comfort and Performance Contribute to Win

Who says you can’t buy a sports car that delivers outstanding performance, comfort and a thrilling driving experience for well less than $30,000? The 2016 Mazda X-5 Miata, which has a starting price of $24,915, wowed the editors at “U.S. News and World Report” so much that they awarded it the “Best Sports Car for the Money.” By scouring reviews from other media and experiencing the driving excitement of the redesigned Miata for themselves, the editors found it to be a light, quick, efficient and fun vehicle that won’t break the bank. See how much joy an open-air driving experience can deliver when you head to Chapman Mazda and put the top down during your test drive.

Many Standard Features on Affordable Fun Machine

Although the thrills you get driving the Miata are undoubtedly the best reason to buy one, standard features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and LED lights on the front and rear are just another example of this vehicle’s value. You can add on a limited-slip differential, special 17-inch wheels and Brembo brakes if you like, or just step up to the Grand Touring edition and receive heated leather seats, Bose symphonic sound, adaptive headlights and navigation. The Grand Touring model even has modern sensor-driven safety features such as lane departure warning, blind spot assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

Responsive Handling, Smooth Ride Pleases Reviewers

Even though its four-cylinder engine doesn’t deliver near the horsepower of some of its competitors, the finely-tuned suspension, powerful brakes and lightweight make the Mazda MX-5 Miata seem quicker than larger sports cars. This athletic little car is surprisingly nimble and “more engaging to drive that most of its similarly priced rivals” according to U.S. News and World Report. To really experience all the car has to offer, consider going with the standard six-speed manual shift, but an automatic transmission is available.

Other Media Support Miata as Best Sports Car

U.S. News and World Report is not alone in its praise for the Miata. Head over to Chapman Mazda and see why outlets like “Kelley Blue Book” say “If you think driving should be a fun experience that stimulates your senses without costing an arm and a leg…then there’s not other choice but to buy the new Mazda MX-5.” “Car and Driver” magazine put it succinctly by simply saying, “To our eyes it still looks best from behind the wheel, where it remains the most fun you can have for the least amount of money.”
