Mazda, the car manufacturer has made a few remarkable changes to their Miata roadster & they are prepared to test the vehicle in the market with the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster. This feature packed & stylish roadster reminds us of the past. They have garnered quite positive reviews initially for this car.
Mazda started selling the Miata twenty-five years ago and the car was an instant hit. In those days, they didn’t have too many options and Mazda managed to offer style as well as value for money. Mazda has managed to sell 940000 roadsters globally since then.
The base model is currently for $ 25000. The car is lighter and smaller as compared to previous models. But, it’s more capacious & offers a more comfortable ride.
Mazda has improved the fuel economy of the vehicle as well. In the manual model, you get a mileage of 34 mpg on the highway & 27 mpg in the city. The automatic version offers 36 mpg on the highway & 27 mpg in the city.
Rod McLaughlin, the line manager for Mazda in North America shared a few more details about this car. He said that it was the best-selling, most popular roadster in the US. He said they wanted the design to get a little more timeless and aggressive. This will allow it to last for years.
The car comes with 6 speed manual transmission and a 4 cylinder 1.5 liter SKYACTIV engine. The wheelbase has been reduced by 15 mm as well.
Miata shouldn’t be considered a powerful sports car though. It is just an open top 2 seater roadster.
The middle version of the car, the Miata Club will cost $ 28600 while the most expensive version, the Miata Grand Touring will cost $ 30065 and has many more features that the other versions.
