The Mazda MX-5 Miata has returned to its genesis; where it all began. That is the Chicago Auto Show, where in 1989, Mazda delivered a game-changer in the beloved first generation of the iconic roadster. This year’s show marked the debut of the next-generation Miata adorned in a concept package that really turned heads.
“There is so much MX-5 history at the Chicago Auto Show, and we wanted to continue building on that,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. “The MX-5 is the soul of our company, and its enthusiast following both inside and outside of Mazda drives us to keep innovating new ideas for it and the rest of our lineup.”
To that end, the accessories concept Miata dazzled with its gloss-black aero kit, consisting of a spoiler, side skirts, and down-force wings to the front and rear bumpers. The roadster also sports red-calipered Brembo brakes on all four BBS forged black 17-inch wheels. Lastly, the package includes a sporty carbon-fiber luggage rack weighing only two pounds.
The new 2016 Mazda MX-5, available this summer, features the innovations today’s drivers crave as well as its predecessors’ pure joy to drive. It’s the best of both worlds at Steet Ponte Mazda!
