Mazda MX-5 Miata PRHT – Introduction
Power retractable hardtops are all the rage in Europe, where unpredictable weather and street parking in the major cities can put convertible owners at risk to the elements and thieves. Increasingly, such designs are making their way to North America, led nearly a decade ago by the Mercedes-Benz SLK 230. For 2007, Mazda adds one to its iconic Miata roadster, a lightweight sports car with one of the simplest soft tops in the business. The hardtop is even simpler, and though it’s saddled with a pretty dumb name, the 2007 MX-5 Miata PRHT (power retractable hardtop) is a pretty compelling reason to visit your local Mazda dealer.
