1. Mazda MX-5 Miata
Joke all you want. It’s a girl’s car, it’s too feminine, it’s not a real sports car. It’s all been said, and it’s all wrong.
The MX-5 Miata doesn’t boast tire-shredding output. What it does offer will be much more intriguing to most drivers: handling.
Feeling the MX-5’s limits doesn’t require racing credentials, which is a very good thing. It’s better to have a car you can appreciate in reality than one you have to imagine driving at the edge.
