The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers back-to-basics sports car fun in the classic roadster or the new RF body styles. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC offers luxurious open-air motoring for buyers who are more interested in weekend getaways than canyon-carving.
