              PERFORMANCE HANGS IN THE BALANCE

              The MX-5 isn’t complete until it’s being driven. Why? Because that’s when it achieves near-perfect balance. This results in performance so responsive and connected, it feels like a part of you.

              There’s more than one road to driving thrills. The MX-5 takes the route of a lightweight, rear-wheel drive roadster. And when a driver is behind the wheel, near-perfect 50/50 balance.

              The KODO: “Soul of Motion” design language is not just a curve in the side panels or the shape of a headlight. You’ll find it captured in the very essence of the MX-5. Whether the top is up or folded neatly away, its muscular stance conveys an aggressive design while maintaining a fluid symmetry.

              HERITAGE TAILLIGHTS

              Round taillights have been a signature MX-5 detail since the first one rolled off the line over 27 years ago. Like the joy it elicits in drivers, some things never change.

              EXPRESSIVE DETAILS

              The available LED Daytime Running Lights are angled outward to further emphasize the car’s athletic posture.

              FORM IS FUNCTION

              The sharply sloped hood suggests forward motion while granting the driver maximum visability. The prominent edges on the front fenders provide reference points to accurately place the tires, on a glorious mountain road, for example.

              Wherever possible, the MX-5 Miata underwent painstaking weight loss. Even the window glass is lighter. The MX-5 is nearly a half-inch lower in height and has undergone a weight loss of more than 148 pounds from the previous generation, bringing its curb weight down to 2,332 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 and responsiveness. In and out of every corner.

              In Japanese culture, Jinba Ittai refers to the symbiotic oneness between horse and rider. We emulate this sensation by engineering cars that respond exactly to how the driver expects. No car embodies this ideal more strongly than the MX-5. And it started with the introduction of the very first one back in 1989.
