The long wait is over: the new MX-5 recently made its world debut at the New York International Auto Show. The show-stopping design features the latest in performance engineering, including a Bilstein suspension and an exclusive limited-slip differential design.
The new model is designed to be lighter, smaller, and quicker than any other model to come before it. Therefore, the 2016 MX-5 design incorporates several new features, like the SKYACTIV Technology and Soul of Motion design, according to Mazda.
“MX-5 is the heart and soul of Mazda, serving as a beacon for the rest of our lineup with its fun-to-drive dynamics, design and technologies,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda. He further explains that, “oneness between driver and machine defines the MX-5. It’s a philosophy that has led every decision we’ve made toward bringing the MX-5 back to the basics that made drivers fall in love with it 26 years ago when the first generation debuted.”
Aside from these features, the new model also has 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, a limited-slip differential system, new shocks and springs, a shock tower brace, a front air dam, and a rear spoiler. These are just a handful of new features that make the new MX-5 one of the most popular cars in the world. We can’t wait to see the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 here at Mazda of Lake Charles!
