The Mazda Miata MX-5 car has taken the American car market by storm. The 2017 MX-5 is enjoying brisk sales in North America and it has toppled Fiat 124 Spider to be the most favorite two-seater car that Canadians are looking to buy. The one-year-old Fiat 124 is suffering at the hands of the new 2017 Miata MX-5 that its July 2017 sales have dipped by 6 percent. This is a sign that the North Americans prefer to go for the Mazda Miata Roadster than the Fiat 124 Spider car.
The Miata sales are slowly but surely increasing and it has been showing a rise in the sale for the past 8 months. In the month of July 2017, Mazda Miata has shown a 13 percent jump and this is mainly due to the introduction of the MX-5 RF. The sale of Mazda is three times more than what the Fiat Mazda is selling for the last seven months of 2017.
Why is Miata popular?
There is nothing to boast about Miata MX-5 as a sports car. It does not have the kind of horsepower, cylinders or the torque that is needed in a race car. But, still, it has caught the imagination of all Canadians. The specifications of the latest version of Miata MX-5 are not very impressive. It carries a 2.90-liter four-cylinder engine with six-speed manual transmission. The maximum power is 167 HP and the torque offered in 140 pound-feet. It is a two-seater roadster and can barely fit two people inside. But, despite all this, people love to sit in this car and drive.
It is not just the car enthusiasts that love this car, the automatable media and every car lover are flat over this car. In fact, there are over a dozen Miata clubs that are spread over North America.
The members of the Miata car club feel that the MX-5 is a perfectly balanced car that makes driving an enjoyable one. The Miata has been on the market for 25 years and has grown leaps and bounds. It is a dependable and an affordable roadster car and this is why many Americans are buying this car. It offers pure automotive magic and joy when you drive the car in twisted country roads and main roads despite not having the power and the engine that many sports cars possess.
The handling characteristics of the Miata car was a rage in 1990 when it came through and still, it is a big hit among the car lovers. The Miata was introduced into the market by incorporating the design and looks of the British and Italian roadsters. The main attraction of this car is the lasting Japanese engineering that drives the car. This is a sports car that can be easily accessed by the masses and is great fun to drive around in cities and countryside.
