Even the window glass is lighter. You may not see it, but you’ll feel it, as SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY contributes to the MX-5 Miata’s lightness and responsiveness. In and out of every corner.

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.

HERITAGE LIGHTS

In designing the latest-gen MX-5 Miata, we were careful to include subtle callbacks to past models. The taillights are a prime example. But to modernize the MX-5 Miata, we reduced their vertical height. The result is an even sleeker, more compact design.

EXPRESSIVE DETAILS

Fitting the headlights into the MX-5 Miata’s aggressively shaped body with its short overhangs meant reinventing the headlight. The position of the LED low beam, the parabolic-type LED high beam and the turn signal layout produce more intensity and better visibility for a more enriched and safer drive.

History

RACING HERITAGE

By pushing our cars to the extreme in fast-paced and unforgiving environments, we learn valuable lessons about safety, performance, efficiency and reliability. And that translates into a more enriching experience for you, both on the road and on the track. After all, more Mazdas are road-raced on any given weekend than any other car.3

A TRULY CONNECTED DRIVE

Imagine an archer on horseback, riding toward a target. He inhales and exhales in perfect harmony with his horse’s gait. The horse steadies as the archer pulls back his arrow. Perfect shot. This relationship between horse and rider is called Jinba Ittai. It’s a 900-year-old Japanese tradition, but it’s more important to us now than ever. We strive to engineer this connection into each and every one of our cars. The MX-5 Miata, being a true driver’s car, is certainly no exception.

SAFETY

CAN A FEW BLINKING LIGHTS GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND?

With available i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations, the answer is yes. They use advanced technologies like milliwave radars and cameras to give you a sixth sense for safety, helping alert you to hazards before they happen.

ADAPTIVE FRONT-LIGHTING SYSTEM

This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.

HIGH BEAM CONTROL

Available High Beam Control helps the driver see better at night by maximizing opportunities to use the high beams. The system automatically switches to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic and/or a vehicle ahead.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM

When traveling at speeds of 44 mph or higher5, this available system gives you audible and visual warnings when it detects that your vehicle is about to unintentionally depart from its lane.

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

When backing up, this available feature helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning6, as well as a visual warning in either side mirror and the display screen.

BLIND SPOT MONITORING

This available system helps detect objects in your blind spots6 and alerts you with a chime and warning light in the side mirror.

TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION

To help you stay alert and informed, the available Traffic Sign Recognition System7 can show you Speed Limit, Stop, and Do Not Enter information in the Miata’s 4.6-inch full-color LCD display. The system’s strategically mounted cameras scan for road signs, so you can keep your focus on what’s ahead.

SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT

When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, available Smart City Brake Support8 helps detect objects ahead and prepares your vehicle by adjusting brake pads closer to the disc. If no action is taken, the brakes are automatically applied.
