MAZDA MX-5 MIATA

Convertible, under $29,000

Mazda MX-5 Miata

The MX-5 Miata uses its combination of style and performance to deliver consistent value to buyers, whether this convertible is a low-mileage second car, a high-mileage road trip machine, or something in between. Although the Pontiac G6 showed promise in our ratings, it wasn’t able to overcome the strong results from the MX-5 Miata.
