              POWER & BALANCE

              FINELY BALANCED PERFORMANCE

              There’s more than one road to driving thrills. The MX-5 takes the route of lightweight, rear-wheel drive. And when a driver is behind the wheel, near-perfect balance. It all adds up to an incredibly lively, agile car that’s so responsive it almost feels like an extension of yourself.

              50/50 BALANCE

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

              LESS WEIGHT

              New materials like aluminum and ultra-high tensile steel help achieve lighter, yet more stable and rigid driving dynamics.

              KODO DESIGN

              The taut, muscular design charges dramatic new life into the MX-5. Stunning from every angle, it's almost as exciting to look at as it is to drive.

              ALWAYS AUTHENTIC

              Unwavering, uncompromising and committed to true sports car authenticity, the MX-5 has always been—and will always be—the track-proven real deal.

              TUNED ENGINE

              Innovative details like an aluminum-alloy block and cylinder head help make the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter engine lightweight yet potent.

              6-SPEED MANUAL

              The new six-speed manual transmission is smaller and lighter than its predecessor but keeps its famed short-throw precision. 

              RIGID CHASSIS

              Highly rigid yet lightweight, the all-new SKYACTIV®-Chassis plays a key role in the MX-5’s nimbleness and stability.

              LIGHTER FRAME

              The aluminum power plant frame has undergone a weight loss of nearly 20 percent from the previous-generation MX-5.

              HERITAGE LAMPS

              It wouldn't be a true MX-5 without round rear lamps—a signature detail since the first generation.

              SLEEK PROFILE

              The new MX-5 is shorter and lower in height than any of its predecessors, giving it a look of concentrated energy and athletic leanness.

              EXPRESSIVE DETAILS

              The available LED daytime running lamps are angled outward to suggest forward motion and emphasize the car's wide stance.

              SLOPING HOOD

              The sharply sloped hood allows you to see the road better, while the high-rising edges on the front fenders give you reference points to accurately place the tires.

              CLOSE COMMUNITY
