Mazda MX-5 Miata News
The original allocation sold out within hours
The Skyactiv-X is a high-compression gasoline engine, its 16:1 compression ratio comparable to that of a diesel engine.
It's not cheap, but it's the holy grail of Miatas and as-new.
Orange you glad it's... orange?
We love Mazda's roadster.
New power, same feeling.
There's a small bump to torque and some interior updates.
Using a video game as a feeder racing series is nothing new. Sony and Nissan have run the GT Academy for years now, rewarding the best Gran Turismo players with the chance to drive a real car. It seems Mazda wants a piece of the action. This year, it will host an iRacing Hot Lap Challenge, giving the best players a trip to the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The two fastest drivers will race head-to-head, with the winner earning a test drive in a Mazda MX-5 Miata Cup car.
We all know the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a truly wonderful car. It takes everything delightful about cars and driving and distills it into a compact and lightweight package. It's a car anyone can enjoy. My wife, who until recently has shown no real interest in sports cars beyond their design, wants one. I want one, too, but I couldn't get past the Miata's terrible seats. For 2018, there's finally an alternative.
It's even closer to a Miata Coupe than the earlier PRHT.
