And nothing between your head and the sky. There’s a reason the MX-5 Miata has its own race series. The genius of the Mazda MX-5 Miata’s two-liter SKYACTIV-G engine is matched only by the sublime close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. You can literally shift gears by flicking your wrist.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has a spritely 2-liter 16-valve dual-overhead-cam SKYACTIV-G engine that makes an impressive 181 horsepower and redlines at 6 800 RPM—all without sacrificing fuel efficiency. Delivering up to 35 highway miles per gallon your Mazda MX-5 Miata gives you the thrills of a performance roadster and the fuel efficiency of a subcompact. A close-ratio six-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter adds to the performance.
