We’ve got a rundown of some recent models for you so you can know what to expect when it comes to our used Miata inventory.

Third Generation MX-5 (2006 – Present)

The 2013 MX-5 received a notable update in the form of new features, a coordinated silver and black interior that matched both the soft and hard tops on the vehicle and adding on a more aggressive front end. Drivers also had the option of a tan luxury interior option.

Other models in the third generation included quite a few improvements over the second-gen models, such as a stiffer and overall more sophisticated chassis, a souped up engine, and more room in a refined interior.

A 166-hp engine was found in the early third-gen models, and drivers had as many as six trim levels to choose from, ensuring that you’ll likely find a used Miata that offers the features and amenities you desire.

Second Generation Miatas (1999 – 2005)

One of the most noticeable differences between these two generations will be the obvious one: second-gen models will not likely have the modern technology of third generation models.

That said, since they are a bit older, they often also have a lower price tag while still retaining all of the class that’s come to define the Miata. A 140-hp 1.8L 4-cylinder with 5-speed manual transmission kicked off this generation of the vehicle, although later models received tweaks that kicked the power up just a bit more (2004 included a turbocharged model with 178 hp for example).

Some top-of-the-line amenities that were available include Bose stereo systems and leather upholstery.
