TCC’s Bottom Line
The Fiat 124 Spider takes the best from the Mazda MX-5 Miata, namely its agile handling and comfortable ride, while adding turbocharged power and Italian flavor. It’s truly a driver's car. The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is the quintessential modern sports car. The 2018 Toyota 86 is a thrilling entry sports car at an affordable price. We wholeheartedly appreciate its enthusiasm.
