1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata

For its fourth year in production, Mazda's popular MX-5 Miata received only a few minor upgrades, including the addition of new tan-colored soft top. In addition, a new Sensory Sound stereo system with a CD player was added to the options list.
The MX-5 Miata was powered by a 116-horsepower, 1.6-liter, double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine with multi-port electronic fuel injection.
A five-speed manual transmission was standard, while a four-speed automatic was optional.
The MX-5 Miata came with a manually operated soft top. A removable hardtop was available as an option. Other standard features included power brakes, four-wheel double-wishbone suspension, a driver's-side airbag, remote fuel and trunk releases, and 14-inch wheels. Options included air conditioning, power windows, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum alloy wheels, and leather seats.
The most common comment heard from drivers was that the MX-5 Miata was a fun car to drive. Its handling, styling, reliability, and durability were among the positive points cited by drivers. Limited trunk space and limited power/performance were among the negatives noted by drivers.
