The first reviews of the new Mazda Miata model are out—and they are overwhelmingly positive. Of course, seeing how popular this iconic roadster has always been, that’s obviously not a surprise. But still, it’s exciting to see critics reacting so enthusiastically to the new, redesigned model already. Not only did the car receive an all-new design, it also has some updates when it comes to what’s under the hood as well.
As you might know, the Miata has been lightweighted for the new model. In fact, it only weighs 2,200 pounds now. However, it still boasts some impressive performance numbers—such as 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of torque. Those numbers are only slightly lower than the last model, which is impressive especially since the model dropped so much weight.
The car makes bigger use of aluminum than ever before, features a 2.0L engine, and of course—retains the Miata’s signature convertible set up. The 2016 Mazda Miata will be coming to auto shows this season, so keep your eyes open and look for the legendary Miata—and its new engine setup—very soon.
