The 2018 Mazda MX 5 Miata Convertible is a subcompact convertible offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $25,295. For that price, it mainly competes with the Fiat 124 Spider. Alternatively, you could also consider the Mini Cooper Convertible or the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible. Between 3 trims, the MX 5 Miata Convertible offers a single powertrain. It is a 2.0L inline-4 engine making 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. However, there is a choice between a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The MX 5 Miata reaches 60 mph from zero in 6.7 seconds with the manual transmission, which gets pumped up to 6.4 seconds with the automatic. The MX 5 Miata manages a combined fuel economy of 29 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 4 striking colors the MX 5 Miata comes in really pull you towards itself.
