2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Best Sports Car | 2019 Edmunds Editors’ Choice

[MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: Sports cars should be all about making you feel good Our Edmunds editor's choice for 2019 had a subtle refresh last year that made a simple, trusted formula even more compelling

It's the Mazda MX-5 Miata [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: In a world of ever-quicker 0 to 60 times, the refreshingly pure Mazda Miata highlights the most important attribute of a sports car– fun Miatas have always been available with a clever and quick-folding soft top But the power-retractable hard top on this RF model adds a measure of security and style Frankly, we'd take either roof

ELANA SCHERR: The Miata remains as nimble as ever It's an automotive tiny dancer The updated and higher-revving 2-liter engine is delightful And the manual shifter is so good you'll change gears just for the joy of it But the best thing about the Miata is that unlike most high-performance sports cars, it doesn't require a racetrack to do its thing

You can have a blast in a Miata without risking your license JONATHAN ELFALAN: With prices starting just above $26,000, it remains a good value And it's relatively inexpensive to upkeep, too Sure, there are faster, more complex sports cars But few, if any, are more fun
