TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is the quintessential modern sports car. The 2018 Nissan 370Z is a confident coupe or roadster with an impressive pedigree and a recognizable shape. It's comparatively aged, but an instant classic for most owners. The 2018 Subaru BRZ is a lightweight prizefighter that punches out of its class in handling, but not power.
