TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata

2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Similarly, there's more room inside the current Miata than in the first two generations, but the cockpit remains a tight fit for anyone much over six feet in height and/or not in fighting trim. Personally, I fit very well, and prefer the current car's lower seating position, as the windshield header and rearview mirror no longer impinge on my view forward like they did in earlier Miatas. All windows are small, so the interior does induce some claustrophobia with the top up. The obvious fix: put the top down. It's manual, but a simple toss over your head. A power retractable hardtop is available ($1,760 on the Club, $1,900 on the Grand Touring). It adds just a little weight and doesn't take away trunk space, but unless you'll be using the car as a daily driver probably doesn't make much sense. Aside from the optional top, few gee-whiz features are offered on the Miata. You can get proximity key and Bluetooth on the Grand Touring, but no nav or fancy touchscreen controls. Also no power seats, no cameras, and none of the latest safety aids. They're not needed. If you can't easily tell what's going on around the car with your eyes, they must be closed. If you're into bells and whistles, the Miata isn't the car for you. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata

2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2012 Some people would put the Miata's powertrain performance among the reasons not to buy one. The 2.0-liter engine is peaky, kicking out 167 horsepower at a lofty 7,000 rpm. But for me, for what this car is, this engine is about perfect. Given the Miata's light weight, there's enough power, and the smoothly revving four just feels and sounds right. The 2.0-liter engine in the FR-S produces 200 horsepower, but with a deeper voice and more surges and lulls on the way to its similarly lofty peak. The Miata's short-throw shifter and clutch are also about as good as they get, with low efforts but excellent precision and plenty of feedback. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review

Pedal response is immediate, the transmission is spaced about right, and the shifter is smooth but still knotchy enough to make it very fun and engaging. Stop and go traffic is actually fun. The clutch is also just right in terms of feel and effort. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
