The long wait has ended as on September 3rd, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster was officially unveiled. The MX-5 Miata marks the model’s forth generation in 25 years and it also precisely shows how the Mazda’s designers and engineers seized the initial roadster’s formula. The Miata Mazda for 2016 is redesigned from the bottom up and promises to become smaller, lighter compared to the previous model as well as incorporate the suite of Skyactiv fuel efficiency technology by Mazda. Additionally promises to become a cute, appealing and affordable day to day commuting 2 seater roadster.
2016 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA EXTERIOR
The MX-5 Miata weighs only 2, 100 pounds (22 Lbs lighter compared to the previous model ).. The dimensions from the car are ; a length of 154. 1 inches, a width of 68. 1 inches, a height of 48. 2 inches and also a wheel base of 91. 1 inches. Technically the new model sheds 3 inches long and half an inch in width coming from the previous Miata. The new model Isn‘t as curved like the previous one but It‘s a similar muscular tone like the CX-5 or Mazda 3, actually the 2 recent models are infused using the new Mazda’s design philosophy.
INTERIOR OF 2016 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA
The car’s engine is closer to the middle with the middle being closer to the bottom than other Miata that ever existed. The model has a brand new redesigned rear suspension, a front suspension made of aluminum and components meant for weight reduction. Additionally has an electric power steering and also a stiffer chassis. The Miata remains to become a roadster but still includes a manual transmission. In the end the Miata wouldn‘t be the things without having the six-speed manual transmission as it’s about simplicity using the Miata models.
2016 MIATA MAZDA ROADSTER SPECS
Near the middle from the car sits a 2. 0 liter four-cylinder direct injection gasoline engine which should presumably pave way to the new-gen Skyactiv new version, much like the one in Mazda 3. The engine however produces as much as 155 horsepower upon the Mazda 3 but gives an output of as much as 167 horsepower upon the current Miata. The all new chassis from the Miata could potentially accommodate the Mazda’s larger 4 cylinder engine which is really a 2. 4 liter model producing as much as 184 horsepower. However, the incorporation of the engine beats the logic from the Miata being smaller and lighter. Nevertheless, there‘s a probability of an inferior four cylinder engine with a better power output. The Miata along with the conventional, has an automatic option because of customer preference.
2016 MAZDA MIATA MX-5 PRICE
After its release on September 3rd 2014 upon the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata includes a starting price around $25, 000. This can be a price set to remain competitive but still hold its fundamental charm from being affordable.
