The Iconic, Bestselling Roadster – Built for Pure Driving Pleasure
For a quarter century plus, Mazda MX-5 has been a worldwide icon, not only of the lightweight sports car, but also of Mazda’s unique Jinba-ittai driving pleasure. In developing this, the all-new fourth generation MX-5, Mazda adopted an ‘innovate in order to preserve’ stance aimed at maintaining and enhancing MX-5’s sheer driving pleasure while meeting the highest standards of fuel efficiency and safety. Key to this is the latest evolution of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY which continues to set new benchmarks in automotive engineering. And MX-5’s breathtaking styling is a masterful expression of Mazda’s KODO – Soul of Motion design philosophy. The result is a car lighter and more compact than its predecessor, yet with even more of the fun-to-drive characteristics that have made MX-5 a legend in its own time.
Redefining the Classic Lightweight Sports Car
First and foremost, development focused on creating a driving experience only the all-new MX-5 could offer, through response and handling that precisely match the driver’s intentions. The aim was simple: to make MX-5 feel like a natural extension of your body. Enhancing Mazda’s trademark Jinba-ittai – the characteristics were the watchwords, even as MX-5 met the challenge of satisfying ever-higher demands for comfort, safety and environmental friendliness. Of course, weight was kept as low as possible, while the latest advances in SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY keep the suspension, body and powertrain acting in perfect harmony. Taken together, it all adds up to a total redefinition of sports car driving pleasure.
From the very first generation, Mazda MX-5 has always featured a compact, open-top two-seater body, a Front-midship engine/Rear-wheel drive (FR) configuration, and 50:50 front/rear weight distribution – the classic layout of lightweight sports car. The all-new fourth generation carries on the tradition, but with the engine moved rearward and an aluminum bonnet and boot lid to achieve a lowered yaw inertia moment. Combined with a lower centre of gravity realized by lowering the engine’s mounting position and the seats, this results in the kind of response and handling drivers dream about.
Another key element adding to MX-5’s commanding feeling of control is the driving position: the driver is places closer to the car’s centre line, while the pedals, controls, meters and displays are optimally located to allow the driver to maintain good posture and drive comfortably. Additionally, the low nose, rearward position of the A-pillars and thinner front header afford a panoramic view for easier confirmation of the surroundings and the car’s behaviour. The seats themselves feature Mazda’s innovative and ergonomic S-fit Structure, employing a newly developed net material and urethane pads in place of the conventional metal springs/urethane pad structure. This reduces both the weight and thickness of the seats at the same time as providing superior support and holding capability when driving hard through the curves.
