    2005 Mazda RX-8 Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Mazda RX-8

    • Much like its smaller sibling, the Miata, the RX-8 almost reads your thoughts and carries out your desires before you even move the controls.

      - Car and Driver
    • When connected to the four-speed automatic transmission, the engine is tuned to produce 197 hp, while manual transmission versions get a 238-hp power plant. Coupled with the vehicle's light weight, the RX-8 delivers exhilarating performance along with ultrasmooth power delivery.

    What reviewers liked least about the Mazda RX-8

    • I wasn't too impressed by the RX-8's styling, inside or out. Exterior styling has a lot of odd bulges here and there, including a couple on the roof.

    Mazda RX-8 Comparisons

    • With no backseat, the Z is more of a true sports car, but for those who need a little practicality to go along with their sport the RX-8 is hard to beat.
