2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata Review

Overview
Mazda MX-5 Miata hangs steady as the hands-down favorite of enthusiasts who demand nothing shy of total driving truth. Performance wise the new MX-5 Miata is definitely engineered to get all the right sensations popping in your head. Starting with a free-revving 16-valve 2.0-liter DOHC MZR engine that kicks out an assertive 167 horse power and7200-rpm redline. All the while grabbing a pump-taunting 28 miles per gallon highway. Its newly revised track-tuned independent suspension results in handling that borders on telepathic. And its 4-wheel disc brakes—complete with ABS Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and reinforced brake lines—help ensure linear fade-resistant stops. The interior of the new MX-5 Miata incites visceral anticipation in its most meticulously upholstered form. Automatic climate control and steering-wheel-mounted controls for both the stereo and cruise control are also standard. A Bose® 7-speaker design features patented AudioPilot® technology that cancels distracting ambient road noise. Add the available Premium Package and you’ve got Bluetooth® hands-free phone capability and Advanced Keyless Entry & Start. The MX-5 Miata Power Retractable Hard Top disappears in 12 seconds when you push a button. The 2010 MX-5 Miata: Exhilaration Comes Standard!
