HOW DRIVING SHOULD FEEL
With a spirited 181-hp engine redlining at 7,500 rpm, the MX-5 Miata was made to move you—mind, body and spirit.
A TRULY CONNECTED DRIVE
Imagine an archer on horseback, riding toward a target. Breathing in time with the horse’s gait. The horse steadies as the archer draws back the bow. Perfect shot. This relationship between horse and rider is what the ancient Japanese cavalry called Jinba Ittai. It’s this 900-year-old connection that we strive to engineer into every vehicle we make. And that bond is at its purest in the MX-5 Miata.
