Despite its arrival 26 years ago, the epic Mazda Miata has transformed into a completely redesigned beauty we like to call the Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible Roadster. Although the slightest memory of the last time I rode in a Miata was what feels like a century ago, when I was wearing Abercrombie and wedge heels, the updated version brings a little nostalgia. There is comfort in the MX-5, with its two-seat roadster styling, plush leather seats, soft ride, opera windows, and toylike fun. Additionally, the new model has slimmed down slightly from its predecessor but remains spacious enough to fit the tallest of the tall (proof: I managed to squeeze a 6’5″ human in the passenger seat with ease). Cabin space allows for more room with seats that recline back further, a little more headroom, and lower seating.
This little wonder revs up 129 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 111 lb-ft torque at 4800 rpm, and gives the option of automatic or manual for the sporty thrill seekers. Needless to say, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata carries an amazing driving experience – a sports car and fun to drive. For more information, visit www.mazdausa.com.
