AutoMatters & More: 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition

Thirty years ago, Mazda introduced its now-iconic Miata at the Chicago Auto Show. Its concept was simple and effective: a no frills, reliable, nimble, small, two-seat convertible sports car that offered just the right amount of power and handling to enable drivers to explore, fully control and enjoy its performance at legal speeds.

In sharp contrast, other performance cars compete with copious amounts of horsepower. While that can be great for flat-out, high-speed performance on a racetrack, the outer limit of that power cannot legally or safely be explored at legal speeds on public roads. These cars also tend to be heavy.
