1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The Mazda MX-5 Miata received a new engine for 1994, which was the two-seat convertible's fifth year in production. Under the Miata's stylish hood was a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 128 horsepower, up 12 hp from the previous year. In addition, the 1994 MX-5 Miata received a larger fuel tank (12.7 gallons) and larger disc brakes, as well as a stiffer suspension and new seven-spoke alloy wheels.
Two new trim packages also debuted later in the model year. An M Edition came with such features as air conditioning, power windows, and leather seats, while an R Edition came with a sport-tuned suspension, front and rear spoilers, and special alloy wheels.
Standard features for the Base edition of the MX-5 Miata included a manually operated soft top, power brakes, a driver's-side airbag, remote fuel and trunk releases, and 14-inch wheels. Options included a removable hardtop, air conditioning, power windows, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum alloy wheels, and leather seats.
Most drivers noted that the MX-5 Miata was a fun car to drive (its main selling point) as well as a good value. The car's handling, styling, and drop-top were also among drivers' favorites features.
