Mazda introduced the 2016 Mazda Miata Club at the New York International Auto Show, marking the world debut of the North American-focused Club design. The new Mazda Miata 2016 will come to North America with Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, compact LED headlights and a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine.
“MX-5 is the heart and soul of Mazda, serving as a beacon for the rest of our lineup with its fun-to-drive dynamics, design and technologies,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “Jinba Ittai—oneness between driver and machine—defines the MX-5. It’s a philosophy that has led every decision we’ve made toward bringing the MX-5 back to the basics that made drivers fall in love with it 26 years ago when the first generation debuted.”
