Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Mazda MX-5 Miata

John Diether
Automotive Editor - February 18, 2020
  • 2019 MX-5 Miata almost gone; 2020s arriving
  • New $1,000 rebate for all buyers
  • Lease specials on hold for now
  • Get 0.9% APR for 72 months + rebate

In-between model years:

The 2019 Miata RF (hard top) and soft top remain on sale, but supplies are seriously depleted. Don't wait any longer to take advantage of year-end pricing. We expect this 2019s to sell out by month's end.

As usual, the entry-level Sport is easiest to find. The Miata is one of the few cars widely available with a manual transmission. Factory offers on the RF and soft top are now the same.

The 2020 Miata is arriving in showrooms now. The Sport will get standard driver assistance features that were previously optional, like low-speed automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, and more. Manual-transmission GTs will get a limited-slip differential, Bilstein shocks, and other features previously limited to the Miata Club. Prices will rise up to $1,090 as a result.

Current factory offers vary by region and will remain in effect through March 2, 2020. Examples shown here are for Los Angeles.

Rare rebate:

Mazda now offers a $1,000 rebate on the 2019 Miata to all buyers. Certain regions are also seeing an additional $3,000 off in unadvertised dealer incentives.

If you currently own or lease a Mazda, you can also get a $750 loyalty bonus for staying with the brand. It's yours whether you purchase or lease.

There are currently no rebate offers for the 2020 Miata.

Waiting on leases:

Lease offers on the 2019 Miata ended long ago, and there none yet on the 2020s. For now, see your local dealer for a lease quote.

Note that the Miata is seldom a good lease value, so purchasing will probably make more sense.

Low rate + rebate:

Mazda continues to offer 0.9% financing for 72 months on the 2019 Miata. You can now combine it will the full factory rebate and the loyalty bonus if you qualify.

The 2020 Miata does not currently feature any promotional financing offers. Check with a dealer near you for local rates.

2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Alex Bernstein
Senior Pricing Analyst - December 26, 2019

Model Preview

The Mazda MX-5 Miata will receive minor improvements for 2020. According to an early order guide, the most noteworthy change is that the Miata Sport will gain standard driver assistance features that were previously optional. These include low-speed automatic emergency braking, land departure warning, and blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.

The Miata Club and Grand Touring will also both gain Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. Other updates include a slightly different color palette for the GT trim that adds Polymetal Gray Metallic and a Red Nappa Leather interior option, plus a new Gray Roof choice for the soft top. All Miatas will also get an updated key fob that will likely match the new Mazda3.

Under the hood, the Miata will continue to feature a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic. The current engine was last updated for the 2019 Miata with a boost in output to 181 hp (26 hp more than before). There are no indications that the Miata will get a beefier engine like the 2.5-liter turbo offered elsewhere in the lineup.


2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mechanically, one important update enthusiasts should be aware of is that GT Miatas with a manual transmission will gain a limited-slip rear differential, Bilstein shock absorbers, and sport-tuned suspension. Previously, these were features you could only get in the mid-tier Club trim.

In terms of safety, the Miata will continue to lack a full-speed automatic emergency braking system. Meanwhile, vehicles like the 2020 CX-3 will offer a full-speed system as standard equipment as part of a major shift in features. In addition, advanced features like adaptive cruise control still won't be available in any Miata.

Expect a full review closer to launch.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata began production in November 2019 and is expected to go on sale in early 2020. This page will be updated once we have a firm on-sale date. At the moment, the Miata is the only 2020 Mazda that has not yet been released.

Pricing for the 2020 Miata Sport with Soft Top will start at $26,580 before destination, which equates to a price increase of $850 over the previous year. The 2020 RF Club Coupe will start at $32,345, $700 more than before. Destination pricing is not yet listed, but will likely continue to be $920 like other 2020 cars from Mazda.

The Miata's key competitors include cars like the FIAT 124 Spider, Toyota 86, and Subaru BRZ.
