Introduction
The world was introduced to the Mazda MX-5 Miata in the late 1980s. The compact 2-seat convertible was a modern reincarnation of a classic British roadster"lightweight, nimble and fun-to-drive. With a manually-operated soft top, the MX-5 Miata could be opened to the sky in seconds. Although the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine under the hood didn't offer excessive power, a short-throw 5-speed manual transmission, sport-tuned suspension, and a willing chassis made it popular among the enthusiasts who quickly embraced it. Now in its third generation (last redesigned for 2006) and approaching its 20th birthday, the Miata has added both weight and amenities (including an available hardtop convertible roof), but improvements over the years have secured its popularity within its segment. Mazda has introduced a facelifted and revised model for 2009 that is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms mid-year.
