2016 Mazda MX-5 Stateside Pricing Revealed
Roadster fans around the world can now rejoice as Mazda has finally revealed full pricing details for the fourth-generation Miata.
Production of the new Mazda MX-5 is now well underway and while potential buyers may feel as though they’re getting less car for the money (which they are due to its new lighter kerb weight), the new MX-5 is everything that roadster fans have ever wanted.
For $25,735 (inc. destination charge), Mazda fans can get their hands on a 2016 Miata in the base-level Sport trim, which when you consider what you get for the money, it’s a very reasonable deal. With a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine churning out 155-horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission, the new MX-5 is a lot of car for the money when you consider it boasts features such as LED lighting and a Bluetooth audio system as standard.
Automatic transmission is available for an additional $1,075 across the range and that comes with a keyless entry system. However, manual transmission fans can also get the same keyless entry system for an extra $130.
On the next rung of the ladder is the MX-5 Club – seen at the 2015 New York Auto Show – which carries a price tag of $29,220 (inc. destination charge) and promises potential buyers a sportier and more luxurious setup. A more aggressive body kit, 17-inch alloy wheels and a seven-inch touchscreen audio/visual ‘infotainment’ system are just some of the included extras.
The manual version of the MX-5 Club features a limited-slip differential, a front brace and Bilstein shocks. Want something even sportier? The $3,400 extras package includes 17-inch BBS wheels, Brembo brakes, a rear bumper skirt and side sill extensions.
At the top rung of the ladder (among the regular trims) is the Grand Touring, which can be yours for $30,065 and turns up the luxury knob another notch. Heated, leather seats, climate control, adaptive headlights and automatic rain-sensing wipers are all included. This model also comes with Mazda’s I-Activesense, which affords a number of safety benefits.
Finally, the 1000-unit limited Launch Edition will sell for $30,495 and features everything found in the Grand Touring kit, but comes in Soul Red with a Sport Tan Leather interior. There’s also keyless entry.
Expect to see the first 2016 Miatas in US dealerships this summer.
