2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata Overview

When it comes to open-topped driving fun, the 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata delivers like no other.

Powering the 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a 167-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The Miata comes with a close-ratio five-speed manual transmission, while a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic are available. For enhanced driving enjoyment, six-speed manual Miatas get a series of tuned pipes which make up the Induction Sound Enhancer, which delivers intake noise to the cowl just ahead of the windshield. The ISE makes the intake noise more audible without making it obnoxiously loud to bystanders. More smiles are delivered with 21-22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Fuel economy is superior to the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky (based on 2009 models).

The front-mounted engine is located as far toward the center of the car as possible for optimal handling, and suspension is tuned for super road-gripping performance without an overly punishing ride quality. Steering, throttle, brake and gear shift controls are engineered for optimal precision and pleasure, and operate in a linear manner.

The look of the Miata is aggressive, but is also aerodynamically functional and safe. The wide stance, especially around the cockpit, not only adds a sporty flair but it makes the Miata stronger. The edgy design of the front fascia gives it a look that means business, but also lowers the drag coefficient. Key body and suspension components are made of aluminum to make a vehicle that is strong but light – and light means fast.

The base Sport model comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power features and a six-speaker audio system with CD player. The Touring model gets the six-speed manual, a six-CD changer, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Suspension Package adds a limited-slip differential for enhanced power-to-the-road delivery, and sport-tuned Bilstein shocks. The top-end Grand Touring model gets a BOSE audio system with seven speakers, automatic climate control and leather seats. For 2010, the Premium Package adds Bluetooth connectivity and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

A strong unibody structure joins dual front and side airbags to deliver a great safety package. Available stability control helps the driver maintain composure under inclement weather and accident avoidance motoring conditions.

Excellent engineering delivers a fast, fun, lightweight and viscerally invigorating driving machine; the 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata is ready to run.
