Price as Tested $31,505

Silky-smooth engine as responsive as ever. Neutral handling, excellent forward visibility, comfortable driver’s seat, great brakes, decent Bose stereo.


No analog speedometer, with ugly digital numbers floating in tach, while temp, fuel, and oil gauges drift aimlessly in other two faces. Climate controls pure guesswork. Useless mini-doors make for bungled rear quarter; high deck, small windows limit rear visibility. Micro back seat divided by console, dark as a dungeon. Gearshift must be thumped into reverse with left hand.


Frightful disappointment after elegant mid-’90s RX-7. Expensive, ugly, and thirsty—18 mpg, with luck. One from the B team, who should now fall on their swords.
