Specs and Features in the Mazda MX-5 Miata

You may have noticed from the table above that the price is a little less for last year’s MX-5 Miata. That tends to happen from year to year as automakers charge a little more for drivers to upgrade to the latest and greatest. Despite the relatively low price hike, Mazda actually did a lot to upgrade the 2019 MX-5 Miata. It all started with performance, as you can see from the horsepower and torque numbers above. The 2019 MX-5 Miata now comes with 26 more horsepower than in the past, giving you an even sportier feel behind the wheel.

Performance isn’t the only area where Mazda improved the 2019 MX-5 Miata. It also has a standard rearview camera, which was only optional in the 2018 model. Some additional safety features include Traffic Sign Recognition and Smart City Brake Support. Upgrading to the MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring trim level will provide you with even more technology with features that include heated leather seating surfaces, nine-speaker BOSE® premium sound system, integrated navigation, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and much more.
