Although you probably already agree that this classic Japanese roadster is an automotive icon for the ages, today I want to finish convincing you with these five reasons why a Mazda MX-5 is always a good idea.
1. It's The Roadster of a Lifetime
Without a doubt, this is the highlight of the Mazda MX-5 . Despite the passing of the years, the Miata still retains the essence of the roadster of a lifetime. These driving sensations are priceless for all of us who really like cars and don't want something that takes us from point A to point B without further ado. And, at a time when new cars are becoming more impersonal, having a vehicle with its own personality and that makes us smile every time we get into it is worth a lot.
2. Roadsters are Timeless
Although Seattle is not a city in which there is a lot of tradition for convertible cars, let me reveal a secret to you: having one is very cool. Drive through a mountain pass feeling the air on your face, nature, etc. it is a sensation that you will never be able to feel with a conventional car. Please, until you try it, don't say another word.
3. It's An Original and Seldom-Seen Car
Yes, the Mazda is not only a different car in terms of the sensations it transmits but also in the aesthetic department. How many Civics, Corollas, Fortés, etc. can you see in one day? And how many 2019 Mazda MX-5s do you see in a week? Exactly, if you are looking for a beautiful car and very little seen on the roads, the Japanese roadster may be the perfect choice.
4. Its Relatively Well-Priced
When we look at exclusive cars, the price usually plays a determining role when it comes to being able to buy it or not. In the case of the Mazda MX-5 this is not the case. Its official price starts at $26,580, a very acceptable amount for a model like Mazda's roadster, especially for a car that has become ubiquitous on racetracks across the country. One more thing: besides its purchase price not being excessive, the new Mazda MX-5 is one of those models that does not devalue much in the second-hand market. Without a doubt, another point in favor.
5. There'a Hard Top Version
In case you are not a fan of soft tops, Mazda also offers you a version with a retractable hard top called the Mazda MX-5 RF, which we had on loan from Mazda during the writing of this blog. It has a starting price of $33,045 and is available with the same engines and transmissions. Fancy an automatic transmission hard top Miata? You can have it with the RF.
