The MX-5's iconic soft-top can be unlocked and dropped in one step and with one hand, right from the driver's seat. Should the weather or your preference change, the "assist spring" mechanism makes closing the top just as easy.
Fitting the headlights into the MX-5's aggressively shaped body with its short overhangs meant reinventing the headlight. The position of each LED bulb, the parabolic-type LED high beam and the turn signal layout produce more intensity and better visibility for better driving.
When designing the latest MX-5, we were careful to include subtle callbacks to past models. The taillights are a prime example. But to modernize the MX-5, we reduced their vertical height. The result is an even sleeker, more compact design.

The MX-5 becomes nearly perfectly balanced when you are sitting in the driver's seat. Distributing the car's weight evenly between the front and rear helps to enhance directional control and cornering stability.
In Japanese culture, Jinba Ittai refers to the symbiotic oneness between horse and rider. We emulate this sensation by engineering cars that respond exactly to how the driver expects. No car embodies this ideal more strongly than the MX-5. And it started with the introduction of the very first one back in 1989.
When every part of a car works together seamlessly, performance and efficiency are maximized. That's the simple notion behind SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. Body construction, chassis, transmission and engine work in perfect harmony to deliver thrilling performance without sacrificing efficiency.
Wherever possible, the MX-5 Miata underwent painstaking weight loss. Even the window glass is lighter. The MX-5 is nearly a half-inch lower in height and has undergone a weight loss of more than 148 pounds from the previous generation, bringing its curb weight down to 2,332 pounds for manual transmission models. You may not see it, but you'll feel it, as SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY contributes to the MX-5's lightness and responsiveness. In and out of every corner.
By pushing our cars to the extreme in fast-paced and unforgiving environments, we learn valuable lessons about safety, performance, efficiency and reliability. And that translates into a better car for you, both on the road and on the track. After all, more Mazdas are road-raced on any given weekend than any other car.
The MX-5's 6-speed manual transmission is smaller and lighter than the previous generation's, but keeps its famed short-throw precision. Or choose the 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Highly rigid yet incredibly lightweight, the SKYACTIV®-Chassis resists torsion during aggressive cornering and plays a key role in the MX-5's celebrated nimbleness and stability.
The original Miata changed the face of motoring by bringing pure joy back to driving. And over a million MX-5s later, that legacy lives on. We made the car. You made it the best-selling roadster of all time.
