It comes with a neat and classy design and great performing engine specifications that will make you feel as if you are driving a race car on the city roads. The car has been designed for every day use and also to add a bit of glamor quotient.
There are plenty of attractive features that the 2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 has to offer its users.
If you felt that a lightweight design will not be possible in a roadster, you need to think again. The latest version of the Miata MX-5 roadster is very light on its feet. Despite being lightweight, it looks muscular and sturdy and also offers the power and the kick that you need. If you thought about how a car can undergo weight loss, then you will be happy to know that the car is made using high-grade and solid yet very light aluminum and ultra-high tensile steel. By using these materials, the weight of the MX-5 has dropped by 20% and this makes the car very light. By doing so, there is more power and energy that the engine gets than its previous version. There is no compromise on the stability and the road handling characteristics of the car, despite losing its weight. The one thing that has changed from the previous version is its driving dynamics and the car acceleration.
Another interesting feature that you will find on the Mazda Miata MX-5 cars is the 50/50 weight distribution of the car. This is what the Mazda engineers are known for and this is what you will find in the 2017 MX-5 version as well. With even weight distribution coupled with a lightweight body, the new version of MX-5 will offer you very smooth and connected driving experience. You will feel well in control of the car even at high speeds. This car features the rear wheel drive configuration and a front midship engine, but still, there is great harmony between the two that ensures a smooth drive.
The driver is kept in mind when designing the car and hence there is a great connection between the vehicle and the driver from the outset. The style features of the MX-5 include parabolic LED high beam lights, leather trimmed seats, aerodynamic shape, active driving display, human-machine interface cockpit, etc.
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.
