Test score: 89

The MX-5 has quick, precise steering, a crisp-shifting transmission and and near-perfect balance, Consumer Reports says. The MX-5's soft top is easy to raise and lower without leaving the car; or it is available with a power-folding hard top.

In the magazine's performance and handling tests, the MX-5 nearly tied the Porsche Boxster, which costs about twice as much.
