If you're looking for a meticulously designed sports car to help you make a great impression during your drives around the Stroudsburg, Easton, and Brodheadsville areas, you'll probably like what the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata has to offer.

Check out this 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata review from the team at Ray Price Mazda to learn more about this sports car and how it can benefit your commutes through the East Stroudsburg and Saylorsville areas.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Exterior Design

The first thing most people notice about the Mazda MX-5 Miata is the distinctly smart exterior. The Mazda MX-5 Miata adopts the Mazda philosophy of Kodo: Soul of Motion Design.

It's sculpted to sit back on its haunches in emulation of a wild animal pouncing on its prey, while the sinewy lines along the car's hood further evoke agility.

With the soft top roof, driving the new Mazda sport car becomes a full experience. The soft top is designed to easily unlock, with one hand, from the driver's seat when you want some fresh air. It's also spring-loaded, so you can easily close it up when you desire a bit more privacy.

The soft top is available in classic black or the all-new Dark Cherry color to create a two-tone design when paired with one of the six available exterior colors. These include: Soul Red Crystal, Machine Gray, and Eternal Blue Mica.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Powertrain

The experience of driving the Mazda MX-5 Miata is rounded out with a powertrain centered around a 2.0L I-4 SKYACTIV®-G engine. This engine generates 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a standard SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual transmission that gives you ultimate control over your gears.

A 6-speed automatic transmission is also available, which automatically monitors your conditions to provide seamless shifting and optimized performance.

With the manual transmission, you'll achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 MPG city and 33 MPG highway.1 The automatic transmission manages an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway.1

One of the ways this car is able to achieve this kind of fuel efficiency is the 150-pound reduction in curb weight from the previous generation.

i-ACTIVESENSE® Safety Innovations

One of the stand-out features the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers is a full suite of available safety technologies that can help you get from Point A to Point B more safely and conveniently.

At night, for example, available High Beam Control improves visibility by automatically switching your high-beams off when oncoming traffic is detected and turning them back on after the cars pass. This allows you to maximize your high beams without having to worry about toggling them off and on.

A Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature is also available for those times you're trying to back out of a parking spot while a pickup truck or SUV is parked on either side of you. This system warns you of cars in your rear blind spots on either side, so you're still protected, even during times of reduced visibility.
