2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Features

6.0
Features
Sports cars weren't always high-tech demonstrations of the latest and greatest gadgetry--and in the MX-5's case, they're still not about all of that, at least in Sport and Touring trims.

Standard equipment includes power windows, locks, and mirrors; a CD player with AM/FM radio; and tilt steering. Touring models add cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls, trip computer, and keyless entry.

Grand Touring models, on the other hand, can feel nearly luxurious, with the addition of leather trim, heated seats, automatic climate control, and more. Optional extras include a six-speed automatic transmission, satellite radio, and a sport suspension.

The 2012 Mazda MX-5 errs on the side of simplicity and functionality, but can still be optioned with most of the modern conveniences you'd expect.

Popular, even common, features found on many cars in the entry-level segment remain absent, including Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and navigation.

The Power Retractable Hard Top models offer a well-designed, quick, and secure folding hardtop that weighs just 80 pounds more than the soft-top model, however, effectively allowing the owner to convert between roadster and coupe at will.

An optional Bose audio system adjusts equalization and other settings based on road speed and whether the top is up or down.
