Introducing the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

By Deeq on 04 Sep 2014 in New model, New technology

Attached Image Japan-Mazda Motor Corporation today celebrated the unveiling of the fourth generation Mazda MX-5 (known as Roadster in Japan) together with fans at events held simultaneously in Japan, USA and Spain. The all-new MX-5, which adopts both SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and Mazda's KODO-Soul of Motion design language, will be rolled out to global markets starting in 2015.

The MX-5 is an iconic model representing Mazda's vehicle-engineering philosophy-the pursuit of driving pleasure. "Innovate in order to preserve" was the motto for the fourth generation, as the development team searched for innovations that go beyond simple evolution. Environmental and safety demands are much more stringent than they were when the first generation MX-5 was introduced 25 years ago, but the fourth generation stays true to the model's original aim of offering the pure driving fun that only a lightweight sports car can. It achieves this through the adoption of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and refinement of its appeal to the senses and sensations through which people enjoy cars.

The design of the all-new MX-5 reveals another layer to Mazda's KODO design language. The exquisite proportions make the driver and passenger stand out, and both the interior and exterior evoke the exhilaration of open-top driving. It is the most compact of any generation MX-5 so far and is more than 100 kilograms lighter than the model it replaces, promising a dramatic leap in Jinba-ittai driving fun.

As of July 2014, total production volume of the Mazda MX-5 exceeded 940,000 units and it continues to hold the Guinness World Record for the best-selling two-seater sports car. This highly-celebrated model has received over 200 awards from around the globe including Japan Car of the Year 2005-2006.

Moving forward, Mazda will continue to develop products which offer all customers driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance.

I see a faint resemblance to the California, don't really like the tail lamps..


But overall it looks not bad. Nice paint job too!

I hope the local AD will bring this in. It'll be the cheapest convertible available.


Even if I do not buy it, I hope many others will. Such nippy cars that take up little road and parking space is a joy for all fellow drivers.

I dunno but I don't see really any of the kodo design in it. I personally wouldve preferred a kinda similar front end to the mazda 6 style albeit a bit more agressive and roadsterish. I agree this thing has kind of a fish mouth. Overall not crazy about it but I'll give it a chance. Actually it looks a quite a bit like the ferrari california from the front end.
