Every MX-5 Miata is engineered with our human-centric development philosophy to help instill the joy of driving. We run countless studies on human characteristics and behaviors to design a vehicle that works harmoniously with you. As a result, the MX-5 feels like an extension of your body, with more precise steering, better control and less fatigue.
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.
The MX-5 Miata convertible is inspired by classic roadsters of the 1960s. But that inspiration is expressed in a way that’s pure Mazda. With the sleek lines of our Kodo design, it communicates a sense of fluid motion, even at a standstill—and practically begs to be driven.
Apple CarPlay™ integration is standard in all 2023 Mazda MX-5 models, while Club and Grand Touring models are further enhanced by a wireless connection to Apple CarPlay™ through your compatible iPhone®.
With the MX-5 Miata’s Commander control, you can intuitively navigate through playlists, driving directions, contacts and more without taking your eyes off the road.
The sounds of the open road deserve a worthy complement. And the available 9-speaker Bose® audio 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. What’s more, a 3-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link is also available to enjoy.
When backing up, this feature helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning, as well as a visual warning, in either side mirror and the display screen.
To help you stay alert and informed, the available Traffic Sign Recognition System can show you Speed Limit, Stop and Do Not Enter information in the MX-5 Miata’s 4.6-inch full-color LCD display. The system’s strategically mounted camera scans for road signs, so you can keep your focus on what’s ahead.
When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, Smart City Brake Support helps detect vehicles ahead. If an impact is predicted, this system will warn the driver, adjust the brake pads for faster and firmer braking, and apply the brakes if the driver cannot.
