August 18th, 2015 by

The unfortunate thing about most sports cars is that in order to deliver thrilling performance they have to completely sacrifice fuel economy. That means many drivers spend as much time standing at a gas pump as they do roaring down the road. And when your goal is to have fun behind the wheel, few things are more boring than filling up.

That is why the recently released 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata mpg ratings are so exciting. By all indications this will be one of the most fuel-efficient sports cars on the road right now. It still delivers the commanding power and responsive driving dynamics that have made the Mazda MX-5 Miata a perennial favorite, but this one will save you money at the tank as well.
