MAZDA MX-5 MI­ATA

The hype is real: the Mi­ata is back and bet­ter than ever. The MX-5 Mi­ata fi­nally re­vives its non-al­phanu­meric moniker that never re­ally went away for its many fans, and is brand-new for 2016. Us­ing a 2.0-liter four cylin­der that pro­duces 155 horse­power, a six-speed trans­mis­sion, its smaller size and heavy use of alu­minum help save on weight from its portlier pre­de­ces­sor. Don’t let to drop in horse­power over last year’s model fool you, the gear­ing will have you slap­ping through all six gears faster than you ex­pected. The smaller size is also not a worry, as peo­ple up to six-foot-five can fit com­fort­ably. Gone is the pricy hard­top op­tion that also weighed it down, but you won’t want a hard­top – the soft top is just way too easy and fun to not be used.
