2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The Mazda MX-5 Miata was available in two new trim packages for 2000. In addition to the Base Miata, LS and SE (Special Edition) models were added to the lineup. All three were powered by a 140-horsepower, 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. A 5-speed manual transmission was standard on the Base and LS models, while the Special Edition Miata came with a 6-speed manual transmission. A 4-speed automatic was optional on the Base and LS models.

The Miata's list of standard equipment was expanded for 2000, and included power brakes, power steering, power exterior mirrors, dual airbags, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, alloy wheels, and an audio system with CD player. The LS and Special Edition models added power door locks, cruise control and leather seats, among other features.

The most common comment from drivers was that the Mazda Miata was fun to drive, with a quickness, sporty styling, and responsive handling that appealed to lovers of sports cars. On the downside, drivers noted that the interior could be cramped, as expected on a car this size, and that the car lacked high-end options. On the other hand, the Miata had always been appreciated for its simplicity, so perhaps the lack of luxury options was by design rather than negligence.
