The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata shouldn’t disappoint driving purists, yet it’s been reformulated for a new generation to enjoy. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is more of a weekend-getaway machine than a canyon-carver; but with mini-SL style and some unrivaled tech features, if offers up roadster thrills with fewer sacrifices in comfort.
