181 hp. 151 lb-ft of torque. A curb weight of under 2,400 pounds.9 Behind the wheel of the MX-5 Miata, numbers transform into beautifully visceral, windswept joy. One of the many secrets to this exhilarating drive lies in its ideal power-to-weight ratio. You feel as though your MX-5 is connected to you, anticipating and answering your every command.
Every Mazda is engineered with the driver in mind. And nowhere is that clearer than in the MX-5 Miata. When working to achieve its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, we made a point to take our measurements with a driver behind the wheel. The MX-5 Miata’s storied handling doesn’t start with a spec sheet. It starts with you.
Refined details are integral to the joy of driving. And you’ll find them throughout the MX-5. New for 2021, available White Nappa leather seats bring a rejuvenating touch to Grand Touring interiors.
The MX-5 Miata convertible is inspired by classic roadsters of the 1960s. But that inspiration is expressed in a way that’s pure Mazda. With the sleek lines of our Kodo design, it communicates a sense of fluid motion, even at a standstill—and practically begs to be driven.
With a greater level of technological integration, our Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System1 allows you to immerse yourself in each drive while staying in touch with the world at large with Apple CarPlay™2 integration through your compatible iPhone®.
Our Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System1 creates a seamless connectivity that allows you to focus on the drive. Apple CarPlay™2 is now standard in all 2021 Mazda MX-5 models and Grand Touring models are further enhanced by a wireless connection to Apple CarPlay™2 through your compatible iPhone®.
With the MX-5 Miata’s Commander control, you can intuitively navigate through playlists, driving directions, contacts and more without taking your eyes off the road.1
The sounds of the open road deserve a worthy complement. And the available 9-speaker Bose® audio system is just that. With speakers specifically tuned and oriented for the MX-5’s cabin, it delivers a pitch perfect acoustic experience, even with the top down. What’s more, a 3-year traffic and travel link subscription to SiriusXM3 is also available to enjoy.
i-ACTIVSENSE® SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
When it comes to a transcendent driving experience, confidence is everything. With i-Activsense® safety technology,5 sophisticated safety features alert you to hazards to help you avoid collision — or lessen their impact.
This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn a corner, the headlights pivot in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
To help you stay alert and informed, the available Traffic Sign Recognition System7 can show you Speed Limit, Stop and Do Not Enter information in the MX-5 Miata’s 4.6-inch full-color LCD display. The system’s strategically mounted camera scans for road signs, so you can keep your focus on what’s ahead.
When backing up, this feature helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning,4 as well as a visual warning, in either side mirror and the display screen.
By pushing our cars to the edge in unforgiving environments, we learn valuable lessons about safety, performance, efficiency and reliability. And that translates into a better car for you—both on the road and on the track. Perhaps this is the reason more Mazdas are road-raced on any given weekend than any other car.11
