Mazda says its MX-5 Miata is the world’s best-selling two-seat roadster. This sports car became a sensation when it debuted back in 1990, and the automaker has sold more than a million worldwide over the last three decades. Today, the fourth-generation Miata, which was introduced in 2016, remains faithful to the original, offering enthusiast drivers a lightweight rear-wheel drive chassis and a four-cylinder engine mounted up front. It’s the same recipe that has made the Miata so fun to drive for so long, and it’s the key to the car's global success.
The latest Miata has won countless awards and has been praised as the best performing and the most comfortable Miata ever. But Mazda’s engineers haven’t been sitting on their protractors. The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata gets a long list of improvements, including a significantly more powerful engine and additional driver aids. The changes improve the sports car’s performance, comfort, and safety.
