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 Subaru BRZ is a great-handling sports car with big value for the dollar; it's just not very fast. The 2017 Toyota 86 isn't about power, but it is about fun, and it has just enough creature comforts to make it livable as a daily driver.
