About the MX-5 Miata

The debut year for Mazda’s famous MX-5 Miata, 1990’s Miata left all of America feeling patriotic, and it wasn’t just because of the car’s color options (say hello to red, white, blue, and silver). For many sports car enthusiasts, and just car enthusiasts in general, the Mazda MX-5 Miata was a return to the classic, unadulterated sports car that seemed to be missing the entire decade before. The 1990 Miata impressed drivers and reviewers right out of the gate, producing stunning reviews about a “talented” and “tempting” car, one, they said, should be “illegal” to purchase simply because it is just that good. The 1990 Miata is loved for many reasons: its classic looks, its ability to make driving fun, its smart ergonomics, the top-of-the-line construction and mechanics, and its affordability. Despite all of its many accolades, the one thing that drivers come back to again and again is just how much fun this little car is to drive. Reputed for its simple design, the Miata is loved because it allows drivers to embrace nostalgia, taking them back to the “good old days” when driving a car was meant to be enjoyed. Forget prestige, fancy design, and complicated gimmicks - the Mazda Miata is reminiscent of the classic cars of the 1960’s that so many enthusiasts hold near and dear to their hearts. Mazda couldn’t have done a better job to usher in a new decade. Their new car offers the simplicity of yore but with all of the current features drivers want. A potent combination of a simple, lightweight body, a cabin that is cozy and simultaneously sporty, a soft-top, and a front-engine, rear-drive powertrain, the 1990 Mazda Miata put everything on the table - and we’re hungry. Miata designers explain their creation by saying that they were looking for a way to take the components of Japanese cars that make them so reliable and combine them with a sporty, lightweight rear-drive convertible. While a novel idea to the rest of the car world, Mazda designer Bob Hall says their idea was “incredibly logical” to them. The rest of the car manufacturers are kicking themselves now for not realizing the potential of a car of this nature first. Weighing in at an impressively low 2210 pounds (and that’s with the plastic hardtop on), the 1990 Mazda Miata is a joy to drive. The car also features standard a driver’s-side air bag, air conditioning, power steering, and a sound system equipped with an AM/FM/cassette. The goal from the very beginning for this little car was to keep it just that - little and lightweight so it’s fun for everyone to drive. And while Mazda basically started from scratch with the Miata, they kept a few familiar features, such as the 323GTX power plant and the 929 five-speed manual transmission. Aside from that, however, the 1990 MX-5 Miata is brand new in every regard. New body, new interior design, new chassis, new suspension… So, in case you’re still wondering, yes, this Mazda is designed by drivers and for drivers. Rather than trying to adhere to fancy marketing gimmicks or to follow suit of other car manufacturers, Mazda stayed wholesomely true to their aim. Perhaps maybe the most incredible thing about this new car is that, while it nods to the yesteryears of sports cars, it does so without imitation, giving drivers something that is entirely new, and yet nicely familiar, to get excited about. Inside the 1990 Miata, drivers continued to be pleasantly wowed. Mazda somehow managed to re-create a vintage cockpit feel in their new sports car and magically did not end up sacrificing the rest of the passengers in the process. The cabin balances sporty with practicality, offering a decent amount of legroom for what by every other indicator should feel like a very small sports car. Unlike other models of sports cars, the Miata’s design makes passengers actually want to be there, leaving room while still letting them strap in for the ride. While the instruments are simple (a display of analog dials), this subtlety of design is just one of the reasons it feels like a good old-fashioned roadster. Everything inside the cabin is well thought out, never striving to be something more than it is - a classic, sports car. By sticking to the simplicity of design and the fun-factor of driving, the 1990 Mazda Miata does something pretty incredible - something that will be hard for other car manufacturers to imitate anytime soon. The sports car for the true sports car fan, this Miata is one for the history books.
