They're small gains, but gains nonetheless.
Mazda Mx 5 Miata
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.
So charming it changed an editor's opinion.
Still engaging, even with the top up and the temps down.
The hardtop almost-convertible is an interesting proposition.
Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should.
The first one in America was delivered last week.
Fiat's attempting to entice drivers away from the Miata. Will it work?
Clarkson has interesting taste, as we all know.
Less weight and a smaller engine could be in the future.
A year with a Miata. It's gonna be great.
