2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Review: Designed to Impress

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a two-seat sports car that has been extremely popular with consumers since it originally debuted in 1989. While Mazda adds new features every year to this vehicle, the look itself has not changed too terribly much. Critics consistently call the Miata one of the best in its class on the market. The 2019 Mazda MX-5 once again looks to be well worth an investment.

Appearance

The classic exterior styling for the MX-5 Miata once again returns in the 2019 model year. Many people have compared the body style to classic British sports cars from the 1950s. The hard convertible top helps this sports car look absolutely beautiful with the roof open or closed. This is a hard look to achieve for most convertibles, but this Mazda handles it perfectly. Those who want to get behind the wheel of one of the most stylish and impressive cars in 2019 need look no further than the Miata.

Interior Features

Mazda knows the features offered inside a vehicle really make it or break it. So, they have equipped the 2019 Miata with a plethora of amazing features. Cruise control, voice-recognition software, and an LCD infotainment system are a few of the unique tech features found in the car. A wide range of safety features have also been added to the MX-5 to keep the driver and passenger protected at all times. The top safety features include traction control, assisted braking, tire pressure warnings, and a rear backup camera.

Other features include hands-free navigation and satellite radio. Audio buffs can add an amplifier and three additional speakers. The standard cloth seats can be swapped out for heated leather seats. Safety-conscious customers will be happy to know that blind-spot monitoring and a lane-departure warning system is available. A cargo net and lip spoiler can also be added to the car. Both automatic and manual transmissions are available. Truly, this vehicle is capable of amazing customization that can suit any style or taste.

The 2.0-liter inline-four engine delivers 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Since the car only weights about 2,400 pounds, 181 horsepower is more than enough power to make anyone feel like a race car driver.

Even better? Unlike almost every other popular sports car on the market, drivers will not have to sacrifice fuel efficiency to receive this fun driving experience. The new MX-5 Miata will get approximately 26 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway.

History Facts - The Vietnam War

  1. The Vietnam War lasted from 1955 to 1975. Although it was officially a conflict between North and South Vietnam, direct US involvement resulted in 8,744,000 American soldiers seeing action over almost twenty years. A total of 58,318 US military personnel reportedly died in the war.
  2. The Vietnam War was also known as the Second Indochina War. The First Indochina War broke out between the communist North and the French-backed resistance in the South. Due to the threat of growing communism, the US gradually took a more prominent role in the conflict.
  3. At the time of the Vietnam War, world leaders feared that communism might spread from one nation to the next. They feared it would spread like a contagion to Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and their neighbors.
  4. The Americans relied on massive firepower and air superiority. Although they won almost all the major military encounters with their enemies, they still lost the war on a political and social level. They were heavily criticized for not understanding Vietnam's culture and history.
  5. When determining whether to take part in the Vietnam War on a grand scale, US leaders and political advisers felt they could quickly take over the conflict and control Vietnam. Part of their reasoning was that it was a small nation. Geographically, though, it's almost as big as Germany.
  6. The progress of the Vietnam War was documented and compiled in a file known as the Pentagon Papers. These classified documents were shared with the New York Times by a Department of Defense employee.
