The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be released this summer. The long-awaited roadster will be everything you expected and possibly more. The 2016 MX-5 Miata will come with the famous Kodo design language, which will be altered to perfectly depict its fun and adventurous nature. The body shape, underpinning and powertrains are developed using the SKYACTIV technology, so the new model will surely provide superb performance. However, if all this makes you feel like the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be just like any other Mazda, you are wrong. With the tradition lasting for more than twenty years, the new model doesn’t just bring modern and futuristic technological solutions – it also brings its spirit, its unique character and amazing performance. Therefore, if you are feeling a bit nostalgic for the ‘90s, you should take a look at this convertible.
Three Exciting Trims Available
The new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be offered in three unique trim levels called Sport, Club and Grand Touring. According to the manufacturer, each of these trims will provide the driver with an experience suitable for their taste. The 2016 MX-5 Miata Sport is the entry trim; it is also the one with the sporty characteristics best displayed. The next one is the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club – this trim provides more aggressiveness in both the roadster’s appearance as well as its performance. The last one is the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring. This trim is designed for those who enjoy only the best in the life – it is the most advanced and luxurious trim of all.
It seems pointless to stress out just how good the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will look like. The new roadster was anticipated for so long, that it would be a total disaster to leave the fans disappointed at this point. That’s why the manufacturer invested so much into the new convertible’s exterior. The new 2016 MX-5 Miata looks bold, adventurous and attractive. The base for the design was, of course, the famous Kodo design, but that doesn’t mean the new Miata is yet another Mazda face in the crowd. Au contraire, its shape, its funky and attractive details and its resemblance to the good, old days are exactly what set it apart from any other model on the market.
2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club Specs
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club had its debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The new model represents a more aggressive and edgier version of the popular roadster. This model is also the focus-trim for the North American market. The 2016 MX-5 Miata Club comes with a bit sharper design than the Miata Sport, as well as a bit harsher performance. It will be powered with a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G engine, which will provide superb acceleration, handling and speed.
Though at the moment there are no official information about the performance of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club, there are some rumors. Thanks to the SKYACTIV technology and using only light-weighted, but sturdy materials, the new model is 150 pounds lighter than the previous one. This will surely boost the convertible’s performance, especially when it comes to acceleration, fuel consumption, precision and handling. In addition, the aforementioned engine will be mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
