The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Redesign

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata redesign delivers a host of improvements and touch-ups to the line’s preexisting strengths and weaknesses. A new year brings new promise, and here’s what the new Mazda likely has in store for us:

  • Greater Interior Space: The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata is projected to come with cabin space redesigned for better legroom and further reclining space. More ample headroom is predicted to be an area of focus as well.
  • Tilting Steering Wheel: To help when you need the comfort of a readjustment, the new 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata is suspected to come with a standard tilting steering wheel with a range of different variations and options.
  • Tweaked Chassis: Not content to rest on its laurels, Mazda has made some adjustments to the iconic exterior of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata, with slimmer accents and a slightly more angular front end.


What Will Carryover from 2016?

Part of brilliance is knowing what to keep and what to leave behind. Fortunately, the 2017 Mazda MX-5 is rumored to retain many of the landmark features and attributes that have made the line such a formidable contender in the luxury sports car arena, such as:

  • Powerful Performance: The 2017 model is likely to retain the 2.0-liter engine that served its predecessor so well, though perhaps with a few modifications to increase fuel economy and torque while decreasing acceleration pace.
  • Aluminum Accents: The new 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata is purported to use aluminum for the front fenders, front knuckles, convertible-top supports, rear bulkhead and roll hoops, and front and rear bumper supports, just like the 2016 model.
  • Excellent Fuel Economy: Until we know otherwise, we assume that the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata will retain the 2016’s excellent fuel economy rating of 27 mpg/city and 34 mpg/highway.

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Highlights

While much excitement surrounds the release of Mazda’s new MX-5 Miata, the 2016 model provided drivers with plenty of reasons to get behind the wheel:

  • Terrific Horsepower & Torque: The 2016 Miata’s 2.0-liter SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGIES direct-injection four-cylinder engine delivers 155 hp and 146 lb.-ft. of peak torque, with a curb weight of around 2,300 pounds in base form and a start-up speed of 60 mph in just under six seconds.
  • Exquisite Handling: The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata has an easy-press clutch pedal with good springback that engages in the stroke. By the time your foot is 2 inches off the floor, you’ll already be in gear and on your way.
  • Crafted Comfort: With a specially molded driver’s seat, pedals, and steering wheel, the Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 2016 iteration ensures that each ride in the coupe is as comfy as it is sporty.
