Since it first started rolling off assembly lines in 1989, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has come to embody the joyful driving that comes with a small sports car. With its intuitive handling, light touch, and unparalleled agility, whether you’re commuting to work or enjoying a weekend jaunt in the country, the Miata is a truly fun car to drive. So it’s no wonder that with the spring weather coming and many car aficionados getting excited for summer, the 2018 model is proving popular among Canadians who want the most up-to-date version of this timeless car.
Originally designed to embody the spirit of classic British roadsters from the mid-twentieth century, the Miata is now a legend in its own right. Over the past 30 years it has defined the two-seat sports car for a whole new generation, and gone on to become the world’s best-selling roadster. It is the car of choice for drivers who believe that driving can and should be a pleasurable leisure activity.
While the Miata is famous for its agility, light-footedness, and responsive handling, one of the reasons for the Miata’s remarkable success is unquestionably its affordability. Where most of its competitors are produced by luxury high-end brands, the Miata has the same superior handling, exciting design, and comfort associated with upmarket European makes, but at a price point the average consumer can afford.

And for Canadian drivers, there are more reasons than ever before to consider purchasing a new Miata. The MX-5 has long been available as both a coupe and a convertible, but in the case of earlier models, the roof options for the convertible were not well suited to year-round driving — and drivers who wanted to the convertible had to resign themselves to keeping it in the garage during the long winter months.
With the new generation, that has changed: the Miata convertible is now available with a new retractable fastback roof so that drivers who are drawn to the Miata’s sense of spirit but can’t afford to purchase a roadster on top of a more winter-friendly vehicle no longer need to choose between comfort and style. The retractable roof gives Canadian drivers the best of both worlds: on long summer drives they can take the roof down and feel the breeze in their hair, and can also enjoy their car in the depths of winter without freezing.
For most automotive enthusiasts, shopping for a new car is an agonizing process. Much as you may want a sleek new sports car, budgetary limitations can make it feel irresponsible to go with your heart. With the new MX-5 Miata, you don’t have to choose between style and function, aspiration and affordability — which might be why more and more drivers every year are discover the joys of the world’s best selling roadster.
