Overall:

This Miata is priced well and appears to be in excellent shape. The only drawback for me was a transportation fee to bring the car from Phoenix to a Carvana transfer point in Atlanta. I have a lock on another Miata that is here in Atlanta.

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Club RWD Review
Zaxius says:
The new 6 speed manual in the Mazda did not feel smooth. Third shift is a bit sticky and it was not a seemless move between gears. I love the RF top but was completely unable to see behind me. This car has a very big blind spot. I did not like the view out the front window. The hood is barely in view and all you see are the two humps for fenders. Felt like I was driving speed buggy. The car has OK pickup and winds out good. The seats are horrible. The basic cloth is not nice to look at and the leather seats lack cushion and just lack any refinement at all. Very basic car for a car Mazda wants 30k for. Was overall not impressed with the car. The looks are great aside from the front Grill that looks like speed buggy smiling at you.

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 FIAT 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth better.
"I was able to get 12 -12 packs of coke and a bag of Kitty litter in this trunk.Impressive for the cars size. The trunk lid is bigger and the fact that this car is wider lend to the additional cargo room. I was able to prove to my girlfriend that I could still go shopping for groceries and won my bet with her."
Family Car Ranked 2018 FIAT 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth worse.
"Nothing at all. Neither car is family oriented. lol no option to abstain from this so just picked the Mazda. lol"

Handled very well and was very responsive to my driving. On the freeway it handles well also and acceleration was great, never lagged. Comfy cab for my size and height. Low on noise while driving. Turns on a dime.
