Spring-Like Winter: Holiday Cruising In The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club
It was like summertime during the holidays spending my Christmas week in the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club. I mean, Santa Claus was good to me as there were two 68 degree days in Washington, DC leading up to Christmas I got drop the hardtop convertible top in the Miata and act like it was spring or fall.
I also got to take my mother for a ride in this exceptional sports car. My mother found a sweater she wanted to wear on Christmas day during some late shopping 48 hours before Christmas. So after calling around to a couple of locations, we found the sweater at a strip mall in Fairfax, Virginia about 25 minutes into the suburbs.
We took the late night drive out to the store; having some fun with the speed on the open highway and having my mother remind me: “don’t get carried away now!” She loved riding in his hip, stylish sports car; though she was quite entertained getting in and out of this low-sitting vehicle.
I feel a special connection to the Mazda Miata. When I started in the entertainment business, I remember my first boss, radio personality Michel Wright and my longtime friend, TV journalist Flo Anthony both had Mazda Miata’s. I didn’t hear about the attractive sports car for a while, and then in 2017 I traveled with Mazda to San Diego for an amazing launch event for the car.
Since then, I’ve been seeing more and more people pushing the Mazda Miata again. This car makes you feel sexy. It garners attention. A show-stopper, to say the least. While out during Christmas shopping myself in the vehicle, I was asked at least six times by random people in parking lots what I thought of the car and if it was as fun as it looks.
This sports car is fast! And faster than before. The latest model has an updated engine with more power and a higher redline, which means you want to watch those led feet on the highway.
The steering wheel in the Mazda Miata also now telescopes. The car also has a rear-view mirror and new safety features.
This car grips the road! It has exceptional steering and handling and truly offers an impeccable drive.

And you’ll save money on gas too. My manual transmission offered upwards of 26 miles per gallon in the city, as well as 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
Favorite Feature: The electrically folding roof does not reduce trunk space!
Least Favorite Feature: Cargo size. But you don’t by this car for cargo size.
Spin Control: With a starting price of $29,590, if you can afford this car you should get it and thank me later!
