2016 Mazda Miata Performance
One of the challenges that Mazda engineers faced when redesigning the Miata was preserving the iconic roadsters’ roots while maintaining Mazda’s current SKYACTIV design philosophy. Designers were able to improve every area of the car by focusing on weight reduction without compromising the Miata’s racing legacy. The 2016 Miata weighs approximately 150 lbs. less than the 2015 version and only 182 lbs. heavier than the first model back in 1990!
With over 5,000 Miatas being raced throughout the world today, Mazda knew they had to make the next generation suited for the track. The 155 horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.0 liter engine in the 2016 Miata blows away the previous generation by delivering a faster 0 to 60 mph rate with a 25% increase in fuel economy.

Safety features in the 2016 Mazda Miata
The new body of the 2016 MX-5 Miata is built with a continuous frame from the front bumper through the rear bulkhead. This allows the Miata to diffuse the force of an impact in the event of a collision. Other precautions were taken to keep occupants inside of an open-top vehicle safe in all driving conditions.
When you upgrade to the Grand Touring trim level, the 2016 Miata comes equipped with Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE suite of safety technologies. With features like blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, adaptive front lighting, high beam control, rain-sensing wipers, and rear cross-traffic alert, you can drive with your full attention on the road ahead knowing that your Miata has your back.

A new improved look that stays true to the Miata’s roots
The 2016 Mazda Miata looks expensive. However, when you compare the pricing and specs of vehicles in its class, as Edmunds.com summed it up, “if you’re looking for an affordable two-seat convertible that’s stylish and fun to drive, the Edmunds ‘A’-rated Miata is practically the only game in town.”
Mazda engineers designed the 2016 Miata around the driver. Changes like lowering the hood and pushing back the windshield A-pillars, drivers have more visibility, while changes like the position of the pedals assist to make the movement of the driver’s feet feel more natural for greater comfort.
Interior materials help make the upholstery and trim of the 2016 Miata look and feel more than it costs. The exterior, with its taut lines that convey a sense of leanness and stability, also helps the Miata radiate with style. Especially when equipped with the Brembo/BBS package that helps make Club trim level Miatas look race track ready right off the lot!
