Mazda Miata in BradentonWe are finally starting to get details about the next-generation Miata, and if you are a fan of thrilling driving experiences, sporty looks, and smart technologies, there is a lot to be excited about. It is safe to say that the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata changes take what drivers have come to love about the Miata and gives them even more to be excited about.

Body Design

When you look at the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, it is unmistakable what model it is, but it have been refreshingly revamped and reimagined. Mazda designers have incorporated some of the elements like flat doors that have come to define the Miata, but the newest build has a stronger-looking stance and a few aesthetic flourishes that really help the forthcoming Miata to stand out from everything else on the market.


The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is almost 200 pounds lighter than the vehicle it is replacing. We haven’t had an opportunity to drive one yet, but we expect this reduction to have a major impact on the way the vehicle feels on the road. The Miata has always been known for the way that it effortlessly whips around corners, and when you combine its lighter construction with its responsive handling, it should excite anyone sitting behind the wheel.


Mazda has kept details about the SKACTIV® powertrain in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata tightly guarded, but we do know that the new generation will incorporate direct injection and high compression. Some have also speculated that this roadster will have a turbocharger, which would absolutely make our year. We can’t wait to learn more about what’s under the hood, and we expect the list of 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata changes to get a lot longer once we know more about the powertrain, but for now we will have to settle for speculation.

The Wait is Getting Shorter for the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The newest Mazda MX-5 Miata will not be available until sometime next year, but the current 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata is available now, and it is a great little car in its own right.
