The legacy of the Mazda Miata is one that has taken it from icon to legend status in a very short period of time.

Under the hood, the Miata offers more of the same prowess that we’ve come to expect from its nameplate. A 2.0-liter SKYACTIV®-G Inline 4 engine is housed inside, capable of producing up to 155 horsepower. With a curb weight of just over 2,300 pounds, that strength is more than enough to induce excitement and still provide excellent handling whether you’re commuting to work or taking to the highway on your next journey.
