Description

MY MX-5 Miata Club Car only has at this time 31 thousand miles on it and is a pleasure to drive around town or on the freeway. "Strip away all the technological complications of a modern car—and the weight that comes with it—and add in a playfully tuned rear-wheel-drive chassis and a rev-happy engine, and you have a recipe for driving enjoyment that's refreshingly pure." - Car and Driver Magazine 👀👍 This compact convertible sports car delivers pure driving bliss - top up or down. All-around meticulously engineered. Incredible rear-drive handling and driving dynamics. Lively engine that makes a fantastic sound and revs to the moon. Stunning exterior design. Power retractable roof for open air driving. Premium leather interior with heated seats and automatic climate control. Bose sound system. Bluetooth connectivity. Intuitive interior controls. I may be biased, but this is my favorite car ever 😎 ❗ PLEASE NOTE: The trunk is small. Can fit one standard sized carry-on luggage (22 x 14 x 9 inches) or two large backpacks. You can also copy and paste the link below on your browser to see a quick article on the trunk size. Please reach out before booking if you are unsure of whether you'll need more trunk or not. https://www.edmunds.com/mazda/mx-5-miata/2016/long-term-road-test/2016-mazda-mx-5-miata-will-the-luggage-fit.html 👉 If you don't have a Turo account, use this link to sign up and get $25 off your first Turo rental! https://buff.ly/2ZpzinH 💰💰💰 What Is It? The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Ragtop Convertible represents the fourth generation of the venerable two-seat convertible that debuted in 1990. The performance-oriented Club trim which adds 17-inch wheels with wider tires, a limited-slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension, sporty body cladding, a premium Bose audio system and the Mazda Connect infotainment interface. How Does It Measure Up? Compared to its most recent predecessor, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 is smaller and lighter. Overall length is 3.2 inches shorter thanks to shorter overhangs while the roof height and wheelbase both lose about half an inch. The engine is lower and further aft for an improved center of gravity. In addition to the smaller footprint, strategic use of high-strength steel and aluminum further drops the Miata's curb weight. Our test vehicle tipped the scales at a very light 2,309 pounds — an astounding 195 pounds lighter than the 2015 Miata Club. As significant as the size and weight reductions are, the new Miata's styling is the real attention-getter. The aggressive creases, sweeping curves over the wheels, sharper headlights and a more angular grille give it a more serious appearance than any of its forebears. The bright-eyed, cheerful look has been replaced by a more focused and predatory impression. How Does It Drive? The Miata's DNA is undeniably present in this latest reboot. Clutch effort is appropriate for a sporty roadster and the engagement is very intuitive. At full throttle, the engine doesn't feel as though it's being overtaxed and the throaty exhaust sounds decent without being overly theatrical. Rowing up and down through the gears is a pure joy thanks to the short-throw shifter and pedals that are perfectly situated for heel-toe downshifts. Gear ratios make the most of available power without constant driver attention. In everyday driving it's well-mannered and easy to live with in heavily congested areas. On the highway, if you're not rushed, there's still enough power to pass slower traffic without having to downshift. Is It More Fun to Drive? As with all Miatas, this latest generation is a willing dance partner when the road begins to bend. Approaching a curve with aggressive intentions rewards drivers with precise and predictable results. Trailing the brakes deep toward apexes while gently feeding in steering gets the tail subtly swinging to the outside without stability control intervening. What's New About the Interior? Better materials, more engaging design and fewer obstructions for the driver all contribute to the latest Miata's interior improvements. In our Club-trimmed test vehicle, many surfaces were covered with a reasonable leather facsimile. There are some hard plastic elements, but they're high quality and/or color coordinated with the body. With its windshield moved further aft and thin roof pillars, visibility is excellent. The large infotainment screen is placed perfectly atop the dash and can be read in a quick glance. The system's dial controller and intuitive menus make it one of the best in the industry. Is It Comfortable? Revised steering column geometry now provides a bit more knee space, giving taller drivers more room to dance on the pedals. The seats feature an elastic mesh support construction, not unlike a Herman Miller Aeron office chair that suspends occupants in a hammocklike cradle. After several hours they proved comfortable, supportive and never stifling. Even with the Club trim's sport-tuned suspension, the overall ride quality is pleasantly compliant. What Kind of Mileage Does It Deliver? The EPA estimates fuel economy at 30 mpg combined 28 city & 35 highway approx. Why Should (or Shouldn't) You Consider This Car? If top-down engaging driving is high on your list, you can't do any better than the 2016 Mazda Miata. You get a lot of performance for the money, great fuel economy and the sacrifices in terms of comfort are negligible. The only significant downsides are the lack of cargo and passenger space.
