Happy 30th, Mazda MX-5 Miata!

2016 MX-5 (ND) — Fourth Generation
Mazda introduced the fourth generation of the MX-5 (the ND) in 2015 as a 2016 model with a completely new look. Yes, some iconic elements — such as the wide grille — are incorporated into the new model, but the headlights, taillights and integrated fender flares are unique. Of course, the new MX-5 followed the same basic formula of being lightweight, balanced, rear-wheel drive and open top — and it certainly retained the fun-to-drive factor. Power output dropped to 155 horses from the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine, but with the reduced weight and more favorable torque curve, performance remains impressive.
