What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata

2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 2dr Convertible 166-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual RWD
The gearbox is fantastic. The engine is lively - but more flexible than aggressive. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
2006 2dr Convertible 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual RWD
Fast without being obscenely overpowered. About as much power as one could reasonable use; perfectly mated to overall package. Best shifting 5 speed ever. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
2006 2dr Convertible 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual RWD
Surprisingly strong. The 6-speed is almost as good as the Honda S2000. The car itself feels almost the same as an S2000 all the way up to 7/10ths. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
2006 2dr Convertible 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual RWD
Not the most powerful engine. But very adequate and amazingly reliable. Very responsive throttle; never any hesitation. (Does rev very high.) Optional 6spd manual = very precise shifts. High revs between shifts = very quick/fun thrust. Nice exhaust note. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
2005 2dr Convertible turbocharged 178hp 1.8L I4
6-speed manual RWD
Turbocharged! It is a light car with all the power it really needs, now if you are like me and are a track type of person, this car is mod-friendly. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
