The Skyactiv®-G 2.0-liter engine offers 181 hp and revs to a maximum of 7,500 rpm. Ultra-light pistons and connecting rods, a large throttle-body opening and a free-flowing exhaust system are just a few ways we’ve optimized engine power without adding engine weight—creating an undeniable connection between driver and roadster.
Every Mazda is engineered with the driver in mind. And nowhere is that clearer than in the MX-5 Miata. When working to achieve its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, we made a point to take our measurements with a driver behind the wheel. The MX-5 Miata’s storied handling doesn’t start with a spec sheet. It starts with you.
In order to achieve the ideal balance of performance and efficiency, the MX-5 Miata underwent painstaking weight loss wherever possible—even the window glass is lighter. As a result, the MX-5 Miata has lost over 135 pounds from the previous generation, bringing its weight down to 2,341 pounds for manual transmission models. You may not see it, but you’ll feel it as Skyactiv® Technology contributes to the MX-5’s lightness around every corner.
The MX-5 Miata’s Skyactiv®-MT 6-speed manual transmission has the short-throw precision drivers love when rowing through the gears. So whether you’re cruising through curves or dashing down a straightaway, the MX-5 delivers an effortlessly exhilarating drive. A 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters is also available.
With its sleek lines, captivating design and soft top, the MX-5 Miata is inspired by classic roadsters of the 1960s. Whether you choose classic Black or the newly available Gray, the MX-5 Miata fits your style with the top up or down.
Round taillights have been a signature MX-5 Miata detail since the first one rolled off the line over 30 years ago. Like the joy it elicits in drivers, some things will never change.
The available LED daytime running lights are angled outward to further emphasize the car’s athletic posture.
The sounds of the open road deserve a worthy complement. And the available 9-speaker premium Bose® sound system is just that. With speakers specifically tuned and oriented for the MX-5’s cabin, it delivers a pitch perfect acoustic experience, even with the top down.
Experience total mobile connectivity with available Apple CarPlay™ integration (shown). Access your iPhone’s maps, playlists, contacts and compatible apps with your voice through Siri. Siri will also read incoming text messages and allow you to reply without losing focus on that amazing drive ahead. Android users can also connect through available Android Auto™ integration.
The MX-5 Miata’s iconic soft top can be unlocked and dropped in one step and with one hand, right from the driver’s seat. Should the weather or your preference change, the “assist spring” mechanism makes closing the top just as easy. And whether you choose classic Black or the newly available Gray, the MX-5 Miata fits your style with the top up or down.
