2006 Mazda MX-5 — Third Generation
In 2006 Mazda introduced the third generation of MX-5 (the NC), revealing the larger, more refined roadster at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. The new model also received a larger 2.0-liter engine producing 170 horsepower — up from the outgoing 1.8-liter 142-horsepower engine. Even though the car was larger in every dimension, Mazda stuck with the original formula of a lightweight roadster — the 2006 model weighed only a few pounds more than the second-generation MX-5.
