Lightweight, nimble and fun to drive, the fourth-generation 2016 Mazda MX-5 draws inspiration from MX-5s that came before it, pairing the driver as one with the car.
The MX-5 is designed around its driver. Pedals have been optimized to fall in-line with the natural movement of the driver's feet for greater comfort. The hood has been lowered, the windshield A-pillars pushed back and made more upright for greater visibility and the exterior paint color has been brought into the door panels - all to provide a greater sensation of the world outside of the car.
Designers worked to create a shape reminiscent of previous MX-5s, but to move forward with a lower, sleeker profile while making the 2016 MX-5 look as though it is gripping the road.
At 2,332 pounds (2,381 pounds with six-speed automatic transmission), the 2016 Mazda MX-5 is approximately 150 pounds lighter than the third-generation MX-5. That, along with Mazda's torque-rich SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine and standard SKACTIV-MT six-speed manual transmission, allows MX-5 to achieve a staggering 25-percent greater fuel-efficiency than six-speed manual-equipped previous-generation models.
The SKYACTIV-G engine powering MX-5 produces 155 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 148 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 RPM, and it sits lower and farther back in the engine bay for a lower center of gravity and quicker response.
SKYACTIV Technology is not just a catchphrase; it is a total-effort philosophy to reduce weight and improve efficiency. A byproduct of that is greater handling capabilities and chassis dynamics, providing the driver with a more connected, enjoyable experience.
