There’s nothing like feeling the wind blow through your hair while cruising along the open road in a convertible with the top down. It’s a liberating sensation, freeing and wonderful.
As the summer sun lies ahead, let’s look at some of the features in the new Mazda Miata that you can enjoy.
This generation of MX-5 Miata has refined driving experience, as the patented Skyactiv technology delivers a full yet fuel-efficient drive. Every drive you take will be a pleasure, as you’ll enjoy having 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000.
The vehicle itself responds to your every intention, fulfilling the automaker’s design language of “Jinba Ittai,” a Japanese expression meaning “horse and rider as one.” With near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution between the front and rear of the vehicle, this well-balanced beast delivers the quintessential convertible driving experience.
Visit your local Mazda dealership to finance a new car or to see this legendary convertible in person for yourself.
Soul of a Convertible
Convertibles are about more than just engine statistics — convertibles are all about the feeling, that elevated rush you get from being in a truly special car. The Miata has the accompanying swag that people expect from convertibles.
Opt for the GS-P model with a manual transmission, and you’ll also get BBS wheels, red-painted rear and front brake callipers, Brembo front brakes, and Recaro sport seats with Nappa Leather. The seats have perforated sound-absorbing leather, and they’ll make you feel like you’re in a cockpit.
The look of the interior and exterior will inspire all who see it. You’ll turn heads wherever you drive when your car has this much personality and style.
Smart Safety Tech
A thrilling ride needs to be a safe one, too. Thankfully, the Miata is full of advanced Mazda technology that makes safe driving effortless, known as i-Activsense.
Features like Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert help drivers know if there are other vehicles in the vicinity that are out of their field of vision. Backing out of parking spots and driveways, and changing lanes on the highway, will be safer and more comfortable for everyone on the road.
Smart City Brake Support uses sensors in the vehicle to detect objects or other road users ahead. This makes drives through busy urban areas where multiple kinds of road users share the space much more comfortable and less stressful.
Smart Brake Support will help lessen the impact of an unavoidable collision or help you reduce it altogether. Sensors read the road and brace the vehicle for stopping. The vehicle will apply the brakes automatically if no corrective action is taken.
In Canada, we need to seize the summer because driving during winter is just not as much fun. For a powerful, thrilling ride that drives smoothly, safely, and smartly, the Mazda Miata has it all. Put your top down and enjoy.
