Its charmingly style, engaging driving dynamics, and affordability give it an edge over its competitors. So when it comes time for a refresh, you better believe Mazda pulls out all the stops for this living legend. But which Mazda Miata is right is right for you?
Will Your Miata be a Daily Driver?
Many Miatas are great for a weekend cruise, but one of the most appealing factors about the Mazda MX-5 is that it’s reliable enough and have just enough cargo space that they can serve as an everyday vehicle. An RF with the Grand Touring trim is the recommended daily commuter, perfectly handling long cruises, including road trips. It’s not a quiet car car by any means (who would want that?) but the RF’s solid top makes it an easier ride for highway stints both short and long.
Why the Grand Touring trim? Two good reasons: first is the more forgiving suspension. It dampens bumps, while still keeping the back end tossable and fun. The second is the niceties that are optional or unavailable on lower Miata trims including standard navigation, heated seats, leather, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and universal garage door opener.

Do you Love Performance?
If you put performance over everything else a car has to offer, the traditional soft top Mazda Miata Club trim is perfect for you. The soft top is about 100 pounds lighter than the RF Club, which is similarly equipped, giving you better performance. It also includes mechanical limited slip differential and firmer springs and shocks for peak performance and offers the optional Brembo and BBS package.
