TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata is the lightest, leanest sports roadster you can buy for small-time money today--and it has a rich history of happy owners. Simply built and beautifully executed, the 2014 Scion FR-S is a true sports car. The 2014 Subaru BRZ can be every bit as thrilling as more powerful, more expensive sports cars. Its light weight, direct steering and excellent suspension make it a blast to drive.
