24. Mazda Miata
Small roadsters are among most car enthusiasts’ favorite types of cars, especially the classic Miata. The Miata’s secret was simplicity, light weight, and balance. Mazda didn’t try to invent something new. They just copied the basic concept of a classic British roadster. They then added modern materials and design and made the whole thing reliable and agile.
With a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 155 HP, the Miata isn’t fast but doesn’t necessarily need to be. Its driving dynamics, rev-happy engine, and perfect balance make this car joy to drive, even if it isn’t the fastest thing on the road.
