2014 Mazda MX-5 Preview
Cons: The MX-5 isn't without flaws and shortcomings, obviously. For such a small car, it proves relatively thirsty. What's more, the audio system is decent at best, storage within the cockpit is limited, and visibility becomes a concern when you drive with the top up.
2014 Mazda MX-5 Price: There are three trim levels to choose from once again including the base GX at $29,250, the mid-level GS at $36,045, and the fully equipped GT at $40,250. The automatic transmission commands an extra $1,200.
2014 Mazda MX-5 Fuel Economy: Depending on the transmission you select, the Mazda MX-5 will burn as little as 7.1L/100km (highway, manual) and as much as 10.1L/100km (city, automatic).
Improvements and Changes: No significant changes for 2014.
2014 Mazda MX-5 Powertrain: Under the hood is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 167 horsepower with the 5- or 6-speed manual transmission, but just 158 horsepower with the optional 6-speed automatic transmission. The latter features a manual mode and is available with paddle shifters. There's a limited-slip differential except on the base model.
Cargo capacity: Of course, 150 litres of cargo room is by no means generous, but let's face it: The MX-5 is a sports car that happens to have a retractable top, and not a getaway convertible.
Safety: The 2014 Mazda MX-5 comes standard with four airbags, 4-wheel disc brakes, ABS, brake assist, electronic brake force distribution, stability control, and traction control.
Comparing the 2014 Mazda MX-5: Looking for a fun little convertible? Consider the MINI Cooper Cabriolet and Volkswagen Eos before you go out and buy a Mazda MX-5.
