The Mazda MX-5, or MX-5 Miata, or the Roadster as it is sold in Japan, is a light-weight two-seater roadster produced by Mazda in Hiroshima, Japan. The sleek convertible features a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The Miata continues to be the best selling two-seat convertible in sports car history. That’s an impressive stat which has helped to make Mazda a world leading automaker. The Miata is not only sexy, sporty, fast, and well-handling, it’s also more affordable than many cars in its class. Modeled in the tradition of British and Italian sports roadsters of the 1960’s, the Miata has become Asia’s capstone to a trend that was once seen as a European phenomenon.
