1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata Overview

After nearly 10 years in production, the Mazda MX-5 Miata received a redesign in 1999. The two-seat convertible's styling was freshened up, with new flush headlights replacing the previous year's flip-up lights. However, the basic shape, size, handling, and sportiness of the MX-5 Miata changed little, which was good news for fans of the roadster.
In addition to fresh styling, the MX-5 Miata received a small bump in power. Its 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine produced 140 horsepower, up 7 horsepower from the previous year. A five-speed manual transmission was standard, while a four-speed automatic was optional.
A CD player was added to the list of standard features for the Base model of the MX-5 Miata. Other standard features included a manually operated soft top, power brakes, dual front airbags, remote fuel and trunk releases, and 14-inch wheels. Options included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, and leather seats. A racing-oriented Sports Package was also optional.
A special 10th Anniversary Edition included power windows, power door locks, cruise control, alloy wheels, a premium Bose audio system, a rear spoiler, and leather seats as standard equipment.
Overall, drivers reported very few mechanical problems with their MX-5 Miatas, and cited the roadster's tight suspension, responsive handling, reliability, and build quality as among its positive points. On the downside, some noted a lack of room in the compartment, and other drivers expressed a desire for a bit more power in their Miatas.
