Visit Mazda for more information on the Mazda Miata.

The legendary Mazda roadster enters 2002 with a series of pleasant upgrades in the area of performance. The sporty look and feel remains the same, with the spirited character of the Miata shining through.

Available Models
Two models are offered for 2002 - the Mazda Miata Roadster and the Mazda Miata LS Roadster - bearing marked differences in the luxury department.

Interior Features
The base model Miata Roadster boasts a broad collection of amenities that include power windows, leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, and an AM/FM stereo with CD player and four speakers. Building on this package, the Miata LS Roadster makes key additions such as tan leather upholstery to the contoured high back seats, cruise control, power door locks, a remote keyless entry system, chrome inside door handles, and a powerful 200-watt Bose AM/FM stereo with CD player.

Exterior Features
Both models sport a retractable convertible top, with the LS model featuring a tan top. The base model starts off with dual power outside mirrors, five-spoke fifteen-inch alloy wheels, wind blocker, and front fog lights. The Miata LS Roadster again picks up at this point and adds sixteen-inch alloy wheels.

A visual overhaul was made to the front fascia this year, including headlights with projector beams and multi-surface reflectors, and an eye-catching five-point grille.

Under the hood of the gritty little Miata is a 1.8-litre, SOHC, four-cylinder engine that produces 142 horsepower and 125 lbs-ft of torque. New for 2002 are improvements to the variable valve timing, a more rigid chassis, and a finely-tuned front and rear suspension for precision handling.

The fuel consumption rating checks in at approximately 23/28 mpg (city/hwy), and the standard transmission is five-speed manual. A fun six-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic transmission are available as options on the LS model.

Safety and Security
Each Mazda Miata Roadster is built with standard safety equipment that includes a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, front and rear crumples zones, side impact door beams, and three-point seatbelts. Each vehicle comes with a three-year roadside assistance program.
