4. Mazda MX-5 Miata
For those who want to go on a road trip with only one person, maybe on a romantic cruise up the coast, the Mazda MX-5 Miata will deliver. With the top down and the wind in your hair you will feel like the king of the road zipping along on his royal chariot. The quick steering and agile chassis allow for some of the most satisfying driving experiences ever, and the suspension delivers a smooth comfortable ride in even the roughest conditions. The 167 horsepower four-cylinder engine has plenty of pep thanks to the low body weight of the Miata, and a low center of gravity lets this car corner like a champion. Just remember to pack light, since there isn’t a whole lot of cargo space in this little roadster.
