Summertime is a good time for new-car deals, and a good time to drive a convertible like the Mazda MX-5 Miata.


So it’s perhaps unsurprising that enthusiast Web site Jalopnik is finding deals on used 2016 Miatas.

Specifically, the gang over there found that the up-level Grand Touring trim is a bargain, as it based over $30K new and some examples are being spotted online for around $23,000.

Go for the Grand Touring

That’s not the case with the base Sport models, many of which are so close in price to a new 2017 model that it makes more sense to shop new. However, a few high-mileage examples were available for a few grand off the sticker of a new car.

Back to the Grand Touring. The higher-trim Grand Touring offers either the manual or automatic transmission and features such as navigation and blind-spot monitoring.

With that being the top trim, it only makes sense that a buyer should try to snag one for cheap. There’s plenty of summer left to enjoy the car, and getting one now may be a smarter financial decision than buying new – especially since the 2018s won’t hit showrooms until fall.

Save Nearly $10K

A nearly $10K discount for a like-new Miata seems hard to beat. For less than the price of the base-model car, you can get a fully-loaded top-trim MX-5, as long as you can live with it having some pre-owned miles. That’s pretty incredible for a car that’s only in its second model year.

Go out and get your Miata now, while both the deals and the weather are still hot.
