2017 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA
TOP DOWN, HEART RATE UP.
The MX-5's iconic soft-top can be unlocked and dropped in one step and with one hand, right from the driver's seat. Should the weather or your preference change, the "assist spring" mechanism makes closing the top just as easy.
Fitting the headlights into the MX-5's aggressively shaped body with its short overhangs meant reinventing the headlight. The position of each LED bulb, the parabolic-type LED high beam and the turn signal layout produce more intensity and better visibility for better driving.
Heated leather-trimmed bucket seats with three comfort settings in Grand Touring models are designed to conform to your every curve and adjust to your specific driving position. To reduce vibration and improve holding capabilities of the driver, even in corners, the MX-5 seatbacks and cushions feature lightweight netting materials.
AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL
Driving with the top down and the wind in your hair is exhilarating. But even with the top up, you can still control the air in your MX-5. Grand Touring models feature automatic climate control. Just set the temperature and let the system maintain your cabin comfort. Sport and Club models allow for manual operation of the heating and cooling.
WHEN A CAR IS AN EXTENSION OF YOUR BODY, DRIVING IS AN EXTENSION OF YOUR SOUL.
The concept of Jinba Ittai, or "horse and rider as one," is the inspiration for the MX-5. That a horse and its rider communicate by being instinctively in tune with each other-achieving effortless communication. To complete that same communication behind the wheel of an MX-5, Mazda engineers used multiple electromyograms and G sensors to analyze a driver's interaction with the vehicle. From determining the exact location of the shift lever, to which muscles and precisely how much effort they need to shift, every aspect of the drive is engineered to not just connect you with your MX-5, but make you one with it.
Navigating the options displayed on your available full-color display has never been easier. Just use the multifunction Commander control conveniently located on the center console to scroll through your infotainment choices.
The available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM
When traveling at speeds of 41 mph or higher, this available system gives you audible and visual warnings when it detects that your vehicle is about to unintentionally depart from its lane.*
YOU MAKE IT COMPLETE.
The MX-5 becomes nearly perfectly balanced when you are sitting in the driver's seat. Distributing the car's weight evenly between the front and rear helps to enhance directional control and cornering stability.
STRATEGIC WEIGHT LOSS
Wherever possible, the MX-5 Miata underwent painstaking weight loss. Even the window glass is lighter. The MX-5 is nearly a half-inch lower in height and has undergone a weight loss of more than 148 pounds from the previous generation, bringing its curb weight down to 2,332 pounds for manual transmission models. You may not see it, but you'll feel it, as SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY contributes to the MX-5's lightness and responsiveness. In and out of every corner.
