Redesigned Mazda MX-5 Keeps Miata Magic Going | Consumer Reports


Now in its fourth generation, the latest MX-5 Miata sticks to the successful fun-to-drive roadster formula, but adds more room and features. Lighter, shorter, and less powerful, it avoids the industry trend of bulking up.

  1. Wow, I think that people who haven't liked the Miata since the first generation will really enjoy this redesign, it's the best looking car on the road 😉

  2. I imagine there are many people that couldn't care less about an infotainment system.  I wonder how feasible it might be to remove that knob and the remaining system..

  3. Great first review (that drone battery needs a recharge). Hitting your wrist on the control knob could get annoying :S. Wish they had not got the full infotainment, overkill for the Club edition and extra cost. At last the news embargo is over!

  4. I love the car, but the deal breaker for me with this and all convertible's, is the claustrophobic driving experience with the top up, and the noise factor.

    As always, very nice review Tom.  I enjoyed it.

  5. Hello Tom. The real question is, are you going to buy one for yourself? What color? After it's been thoroughly tested? Maybe the one CR will have after all your colleagues had their paws all over it?

  6. British open roadster feel and performance without the repair costs and downtime with breakdowns.  Mazda got it right in the beginning and did it again.

  7. The plasticky satnav screen sticking out in the middle of the dashboard absolutely kills it for me…

  8. I hope that the red color is cherry red for a sports car and not the ugly dark red.that on sedans and trucks.Even the Mazda 3 ($23k) has stuff that are stingily omitted on the Miata ($26k) such as: 1) autodimming rearview mirror  2) blind spot side mirrors  3) Heads-up display  4) paddle shifters for automatic transmission   5) homelink garage door opener 6) 215/45/18 tires on 18 inch rims  7) backup camera

  9. You can't even buy one. You should wait until late 2016 or 2017 when they hopefully sell models without AC and that horrible infotainment weighing it down. Seriously… who buys these stupid GT models? MX-5 is not a GT. Why would you put the top up with AC and radio on? Buy a different car for that like a Subaru BRZ.

  10. Putting the control knob down where your shifting forearm might rest is a bonehead move. I want this car and I have a feeling I'm gonna want to rip that control knob out.

  11. I'll keep my old 2005 S2000…
    Its just as good looking, & more powerful.
    Best of all… It's paid off. :0)

  12. That tabletlike thing on  dashboard is just ugly, especially in such a nice car, which MX-5 is. Hell, I want one 😀

  13. I have a MX5, it's great fun roadster. The new one look even better. With some tuning, it would be a awesome fun car. Try Ohlins coil over. It is fantastic.

  14. I agree with power thing–"It's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow."

  15. Hi Tom the ND MX-5 cup holder is removable. U can move by the knee. Please see GOOD WING RACING on facebook thank u

  16. The 2016 Mazda Mx-5's infotainment/navigation screen is ugly and looks like an aftermarket afterthought protruding out of the dashboard.  To do this right, they should have included the infotainment/navigation screen into the dashboard screen that currently has the RPM like Lamborghini Huracan.

  17. I agree with all of the things that the OP said that this vehicle needed, but another thing that this vehicle needs is a stock option to have an engine that is about 5.0 liter and about 400 HP.  Yes, it might make the vehicle a bit heavier, but this tiny car is just BEGGING for a much bigger engine and I know for a FACT that Mazda can build a much bigger engine.
