About Mazda MX-5

When it comes to pure driving experience, few cars can provide the fun experience that will get your adrenaline pumping. One of those cars is the Mazda MX-5 Miata, and it has always been that way.

Since late 1980s, Mazda Miata has been in the class of its own. And that’s not because others have not tried. Many competitors have come to try to take over, only to have come short of the Miata.

It’s not that Miata is some powerful beastly car that accelerates like a rocket. It’s actually not that quick of the line, although the newer model is getting there. Miata has always been about a 2-seater sports car convertible that is light on its wheels and offers incredible handling and feel for the driver.

Simply put, if you’re looking for a car to have fun with, this is the one. This is the car you want to be in when you drive on those twisted narrow roads around hills and mountains. It will take every turn you throw at it and handle it with pure perfection. It really doesn’t get better than this.

Carrying the Japanese Legacy

Mazda MX-5 Miata 0-60 timesThe main base of Mazda is in Hiroshima, Japan, and it is a well-known fact that the Japanese people are known for their dedication and hard work in whatever task is being taken up by them. The same can be said for the various car models being manufactured by the Mazda even in the present era.

Better proof can be taken by the fact that the car that was launched in 1989 is still being sold on the streets and is making new records and creating history. There have been many modifications in the Mazda MX-5 Miata line since it was first introduced in the market and every time a new model was launched it easily topped the charts with all the new capabilities and the additional fun factor it provided each time.

The main reason for the success of the MX-5 Miata is due to its rear-wheel drive platform and light weight of the car. The convertible top doesn’t hurt either as it’s much more fun going down twisty roads with wind in your hair. The car has a loyal following that simply won’t quit.

The Overview of Generations

The first generation was introduced in 1989 and stayed in the till the year 1997. The car was equipped with a 1.6L straight 4 engine and was mostly recognized by its popped up headlights.

The second generation was introduced in the year 1999 with a slightly more powerful engine and was known by the glass window at the rear and the fixed headlights. The design didn’t have any ground breaking changes and even the first generation owners could have a rear glass window by removing the top.

The third generation was launched at times when the roadster market was facing a downfall, in the year 2006. The main feature of this compact roadster was the anti braking system, limited slip differential and traction control, which was present in the higher model trims. The power of this model has also increased which was badly needed. This without a doubt helped in boosting the sales.

Performance

The newest 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata has certainly upped the performance figures. The car produces 155 hp at 7000 RPM and 148 lbs.-ft. of torque at 4800 RPM. Although that doesn’t seem like much power, due to its light-weight design, it allows the Miata to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 5.8 seconds. The quarter mile can be achieved in 14.5 seconds at 94.2 mph.

The straight line performance was never Miata’s strong advantage, however, it will seem much faster when you can utilize that speed in just about every turn. This car handles like a dream and provides that type of fun that cannot be had with drag-race cars.

In addition, the Miata also gets pretty impressive mileage. It should get around 24 mpg in city and 32 mpg on the highway which is quite an amazing fun per gas ratio.

The Award Roadster

There was no doubt that the Mazda MX-5 Miata was one of the most popular roadster sports cars to ever run on the roads and it was no surprise that it won so many awards. There were many magazines that boasted the features of the MX-5 Miata and many times it has won the car of the year awards.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata was even awarded the best value for money sports car that can be found on the streets. This amazing machine proved to be the best experience one could ever get when it comes to small roadsters and the figures support this statement. Until now, around 900,000 Mazda MX-5 have been built and sold, which is quite an impressive accomplishment for a 2-seater.

There is definitely something special about this sports car that has made it so popular. And it’s not just one thing.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has incredibly fun performance that listens to the drive at every step of the way. In addition, it is a convertible, pretty affordable, and is known to be quite reliable as well. What more could a car enthusiast ask for? People that have issues with the power produced by the engine can do engine swaps that are commonly known within other Miata owners.
