The Mazda MX-5 is a lightweight two-passenger roadster manufactured and marketed by Mazda with a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The convertible is marketed as the Mazda MX-5 in North America, where it is widely known as the Miata, and as the Eunos Roadster or Mazda Roadster in Japan.
Manufactured at Mazda’s Hiroshima plant, the Mazda MX-5 debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show and was conceived and executed under a tightly focused design credo, Jinba ittai (人馬一体), meaning oneness of horse and rider. Widely noted for its small, light, technologically modern, dynamically balanced and minimally complex design, the Mazda MX-5 is the spiritual successor to 1950s and ’60s Italian and British sports cars, prominently the Lotus Elan.
As the best-selling two-seat convertible sports car in history, the Mazda MX-5 has been marketed globally, with production exceeding one million, as of early 2016. The name “miata” derives from Old High German for “reward”.
The fourth generation Mazda MX-5 was unveiled in 2014 and has been in production from 2015 through 2018. Although the update introduced in 2018 is basically the same, it has been designated as series “ND2” due to the engine upgrade to 135 kW (181 hp) and several other improvements in the car. The ND generation introduced a Retractable Fastback (RF) variant that features a rigid roof and buttresses that give the silhouette a more coupé-like appearance than the soft top convertible. The fourth generation Mazda MX-5 has received several accolades such as the 2015-2016 Car of the Year Japan Award, the 2016 World Car of the Year Award, Car and Driver‘s 10Best list from 2016 to 2019, and the Red Dot Best of the Best Award in Product Design 2017. In addition, the car is the basis for the Fiat 124 Spider and Abarth 124 Spider.
