2003 Mazda Miata - Price Quote

Visit Mazda for more information on the Mazda Miata.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata SE (Special Edition) remains one of the most popular sports car convertibles. Garnering critical acclaim, its twelve years of success are fast turning it into a classic collectible with enthusiast groups popping up throughout North America. Fun to drive, it corners well, and combines style with affordability and exceptional performance, going 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds.

Available Models
The 2003 Mazda Miata is available in the Base model and the LS model. Both are 2-seat, 2-door convertibles, with several option packages to enhance utility, performance and/or comfort.

Interior Features
The 2003 Mazda Miata maintains its sporty look and sexy interior and even at the base level, despite its moderate price point, it offers a solid selection of interior amenity. Despite its compact size, the 2003 Mazda Miata's cargo room proves surprisingly adequate.

Both the Base and LS model have power steering, air conditioning, power antenna, AM/FM/CD player, digital clock and a tachometer. Standard on the generously appointed LS, cruise control, remote keyless entry, a Bose sound system, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and aluminum-look trim all comprise the form and function enhancements. There are options for an in-dash 6-disc CD changer, and an automatic day/night rear-view mirror.

Exterior Features
Both 2003 Mazda Miata models come with the classically recognisable shape that has not been tampered with for 2003. A manual folding softtop with a heated glass rear window comes as standard equipment but an optional removable hardtop is available. The 2003 Base model now features 16-inch alloy wheels, which have been standard on the LS for some time. Other exterior design features include rear mud guards and prominent body side sills.

The Miata's 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine puts out 142 hp at 7000 rpm and 125 lb-ft of torque at 5500 rpm. Both the Base and LS models are available in 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic transmission, while the LS has a 6-speed manual option. Its agile steering and calm cruising make it a road favourite.

Safety and Security
Both Miata models are equipped with dual front airbags, 4-wheel disc brakes, fog lights, and a theft deterrent system. Anti-lock brakes are an option on the LS edition.

2003 Mazda Miata

Special performance package Miatas, production of which is limited to just 50 units-25 softtop and 25 hardtop models-were developed for the hardcore club enthusiast. Starting with a base Miata (with suspension package), the special performance package-equipped models receive further suspension fine-tuning and are lightened by removing the power steering, modular audio system, power antenna and air conditioning.
The Miata and Miata LS models come standard with amenities such as a NARDI® leather-wrapped steering wheel, front and rear independent double-wishbone suspension, gas-filled shock absorbers, front and rear stabilizer bars, front suspension tower brace, power-assisted four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, power steering, power windows, power mirrors and air conditioning.
In addition to these standard features, the 2003 Miata LS adds leather seats, cruise control, remote keyless entry system, power door locks, a 200-watt Bose® AM/FM/CD modular audio system with four speakers and automatic speed-sensing volume control. It also adds a new cloth convertible top, aluminum-like interior trim and two new interior colors-black and parchment
