2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Specs and Features
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is designed for the pure joy of driving. It is clear that, just like Mazda did for the Mazda 3, their focus is on the driver for the MX-5. The design of the 2016 MX-5 is meant to harken back to the original Miata template. The 2016 Mazda MX-5 is available in 3 trim levels: Sport, Club, and Grand Touring. Let’s take a closer look at the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Specs and Features.
Some say the new Miata looks like a panther ready to pounce, others liken it more to an ocean creature, but there’s no arguing this car has style and personality. The KODO-Soul of Motion Design gives this car a clean line and brings it back to the first Miata we all fell in love with in 1989. It has 7 colors to choose from and a number of interior options as well.
This two passenger vehicle comes complete with dual airbags. The bucket seats are smart looking and comfortable. They are also closer to the floor and recline more, giving the illusion of more interior space. You’ll enjoy standard features like Bluetooth, hands-free phone and LED lights. The Sport trim also has several new elegant touches like a cloth top, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob. The Club trim version comes with Bose Audio 9-speaker surround sound.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata has a 4-cyl. engine that produces 155 hp at 6K rpm. It can achieve an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city or 34 mpg highway. It has an aluminum-alloy engine block and a 53/47 front/rear weight distribution. It’s a rear wheel drive with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) which is designed to detect and course-correct loss of traction. This model comes standard with 6-speed manual transmission and optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Car and Driver managed to break the six-second barrier at the test track, recording a 5.9-second sprint to 60 mph and 16.2 seconds to 100.
