2. Mazda MX-5 Miata
The MX-5 Miata has been on the market for a long time, and in its current form for almost a decade now. Mazdas philosophy with the MX-5 is if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. Mazda had a hit on its hands when the company originally launched the Miata. The car was fun to drive and lightweight, offering a pleasant mixture of features for the price. There has been a constant flow of enthusiasts who have followed every generation of the Miata. But the current model has become dated and in need of an upgrade. Granted, the Miata is one of the few cars like it in the class, there are more updated options on the road now.
The marketplace for these lightweight roadsters is very slim, which might be why the Miata hasn’t seen an update in a good period. Still, the car could use a refresh as more buyers are coming to the forefront and looking for fun to drive cars. The MX-5 will continue to be a historical part of the automotive community, but a redesign is to help keep the car competitive.
