2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata

If you’re looking for an exciting modern sports car, no vehicle does it better than the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata. This light, lean sports model is designed for athleticism and power, but it still includes some of the modern technology and features you’d want in any vehicle.

Drivers in Doral, Miami, Hialeah, and Kendall, FL, can learn more about this impressive sports car with our 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata review.


The lightweight Mazda MX-5 Miata comes with a 155-horsepower, 2.0L 4-cylinder that gives it a polished ride with plenty of thrust. It transfers power to the rear wheels through a slick 6-speed manual transmission that never misses a gear. An optional 6-speed automatic uses drive modes to keep the engine in the right rev ranges for maximum performance.

With its low body and precision steering, the Miata glides through the curves with athleticism and poise. You’ll experience very little body lean, regardless of what the road brings, and its soft suspension is equally capable of gliding over rough roads and balancing the turns.


The Mazda MX-5 Miata looks every bit a high-end sports car. It has a short rear end, long hood, and simplified design that prioritizes aerodynamics. The sleek, vaguely muscular look harkens back to the traditional sports cars of the past, but it doesn’t rely on nostalgia for its overall design. Bold color schemes and contrast soft tops are available as well.

Inside, the Miata keeps the dash driver-centric and ensures that all the important functions are within easy reach. Several appearance packages customize the interior, many of which use contrasting color schemes and premium upholstery and accent options.


The Mazda MX-5 Miata is equipped with the MAZDA CONNECT™ 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The software is intuitive and responsive with many menu options and add-ons to enhance the entertainment or convenience capabilities. A 6-speaker sound system is standard, though it can be upgraded to a Bose® premium sound system.

A stiff Bilstein® suspension, a front strut brace, and a limited-slip differential are also found on certain trim levels, which firm the ride and give the Miata even sharper handling.

For safety, the Miata includes anti-lock brakes, stability control, and a full complement of airbags. Advanced safety features are included like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning System, and automatic high-beams. Adaptive headlights are also available, which follow the turns for enhanced visibility in low-light situations.
