1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata Overview

For its second year of production, the Mazda MX-5 Miata was virtually unchanged from the previous year. It was still available only in a Base model, with green added to the exterior option colors of red, white, and blue. In addition, anti-lock brakes were added to the list of options.
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 standard convertible top for the MX-5 Miata was a manually operated soft folding top. A removable hardtop with a glass rear window was also available. Other standard equipment for the MX-5 Miata included bucket seats, power brakes, four-wheel double-wishbone suspension, retractable halogen headlights, a driver's-side airbag, a three-spoke steering wheel, and 14-inch wheels.
In addition to anti-lock brakes, optional equipment included air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, aluminum alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler.
The MX-5 Miata was a fun car to drive, thanks to its good balance and responsive handling, according to drivers. They also cited its reliability, durability, and economy as positive points. On the negative side, the interior could be cramped and trunk space was limited, drivers noted.
