Expert Quotes:

22 mpg city, 28 highway (5-speed manual); 21/28 (6-speed manual); 21/28 (6-speed auto)
U.S. EPA

With all of our high-rpm driving, we stayed at the low end of that range, turning in a final average of 22.2 mpg.

With EPA fuel economy ratings of 21 or 22 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, the 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata is about as fuel-efficient as most mid-size sedans. In all, that doesn't make it especially green, but it's not nearly as wasteful as most sports cars.

Highway ratings are rather low for a 2.0-liter four, but they are what they are because of rather low gearing that keeps the engine revving on the highway.

Conclusion

The 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata is greener than most sports cars.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
