Top road trip vehicles: Mazda Miata MX-5
It's all about the fun factor for the Miata MX-5, which is also on Car and Driver magazine's list of the best cars for the 10th year. "The steering is quick, almost go-cart like," says Jack Nerad with Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com. "Your ability to commune with nature with the top down is terrific. It's probably the closest feeling to riding a motorcycle you can have to driving a car." But with only 5.3 cubic feet of trunk capacity, remember to pack light, says Consumer Reports' Mike Quincy.
