Perfection is a word that should not get thrown around lightly. That being said, as the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata performance review and specs come rolling in from some of the Internet’s automotive media sources, perfection may not be an entirely inaccurate way to describe the highly anticipated roadster for many drivers.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata curb weight ratioSurely, it’s impossible to please everyone and there is no single car on the market that every driver would consider perfect. But driving enthusiasts in particular will want to be taking notice of the 2016 Miata. The initial response from those who have been able to get behind the wheel here in the U.S. seems to be overwhelmingly positive.

Compared to its predecessor, the Miata has lost 150 pounds of weight, coming in at 2,332 lbs. with the six-speed manual transmission and 2,381 lbs. with the six-speed automatic. This means that the 2.0-liter SKYACTIV engine’s 155 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque can provide that Miata feel that connects driver to car.

The 155 horsepower is produced at 6,000 RPM, with the 148 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,600 RPM. The SKYACTIV engine is designed to sit further back in the engine bay, which allows for a quicker response. We also can’t forget that the Miata has greatly improved fuel economy as well.
