2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 20 reviews
Mazda made only minor upgrades to its popular MX-5 Miata roadster for 2002, with an optional in-dash six-disc CD changer being the biggest news. In addition, a high-end SE (Special Edition) trim package was added during the model year.
The new SE version joined the existing Base and LS trim packages. All Miatas came with a 142-horsepower, 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine. A five-speed manual transmission was standard on the Base and LS models, while a six-speed manual was standard on the SE version. A four-speed automatic was optional for all three models.
Standard features for the MX-5 Miata included air conditioning, power windows, dual airbags, and an audio system with a CD player. All models except the Base also received power door locks and cruise control, while the LS and SE versions were equipped with leather seats. All models came with a standard soft top with a glass rear window, while a removable hard top was optional.
There's no doubt that the Miata roadster was popular with drivers, since it was a throwback to the classic British roadsters of the 1950s and '60s, and it offered a definite fun factor to the driving experience. The Miata's handling, styling, and Zoom Zoom factor were cited as positive points by drivers, while the sometimes cramped interior and stiff ride, especially over the long haul, were cited as negatives.
