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.

NEAR 50/50 BALANCE

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’s 6-speed manual transmission is smaller and lighter than the previous generation’s, but keeps its famed short-throw precision. Or choose the 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY

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 pounds1 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.

DESIGN

TIMELESS STYLE

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 philosophy, it communicates a sense of fluid motion, even at a standstill—and practically begs to be driven.

TOP DOWN, HEART RATE UP.

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.

EXPRESSIVE DETAILS

Fitting the headlights into the MX-5 Miata’s aggressively shaped body with its short overhangs meant reinventing the headlight. The parabolic-type LED and the turn signal layout deliver excellent visibility, not to mention a bold look. And the distinctive circular taillights are a callback to past MX-5 Miata generations, but with a sleeker, more compact design.
