2020 Mazda Miata

Mazda’s 2020 Miata is the epitome of a sports car. It has everything you would expect from a car in its class and nothing you wouldn’t. If you are in the market for this kind of vehicle, you probably already know what those things are, but for the sake of this review, I will let you know.

Model Options

There are three models to choose from. Sport, Club and Grand Touring, each available in automatic or manual transmission. The Club and Grand Touring models can be purchased with a drop top or a hard top.


Like its siblings, the Miata’s interior is comparable to a luxury vehicle. This two seater, is just that. There isn’t extra room/storage for much more, but while shopping for a vehicle like this, that is something you should already know. The center console is strictly an arm rest. A couple cup holders and a small storage cabinet above the holders is all the extra space you are going to get. 

The front passenger seat can become uncomfortable on a long drive because there isn’t a lot of leg room to stretch. 

Trunk space is limited. However, if you are taking a mini vacation with your friend, I can’t imagine not having enough room for your luggage.  

Drive Time

This is the fun part! 0-60 in 6.0 seconds isn’t too bad for a very affordable roadster. The best of both worlds, the Miata is capable of being an exciting and entertaining drive, but is also an easy drive to enjoy in everyday commuting situations. You can expect to get 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway. But if you want to have a really good time, testing that 0-60 often, you might fall short on those miles.
While driving with the top up, the rear visibility is limited. It is something that you will have to get used to.  

Tech and Safety

The infotainment screen becomes even more convenient by having control knobs on the center console. Each Miata comes with bluetooth connectivity and on the upgraded models, you can enjoy Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
New for 2020, is blindspot monitoring, forward collision warning and lane departure warning, now standard.  

Final Thoughts

The pros definitely outweigh the cons. In fact, besides the lack of space, which is something you should expect with this class of vehicle, I didn’t find any cons. You will get all the fun expected from a sports car and the easy drive you want when just taking a drive to the market. It looks gorgeous in every color and with a drop top or hard top. My final thought…pick the color you like and sign your name on the line.
