The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata is rolling out into dealers, now with more safety features, all for the same low price that the car is known for. The Mazda MX-5 Miata continues to be known for offering the best bang for your buck for any sports car on the market.
What is being described as a packaging change, the Club now boasts two new safety features: Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Previously, these two safety features were only offered on the Grand Touring package. The Mazda MX-5 Miata is the mid-range trim level in the lineup of Miata’s.
The Sport’s model of the car features a leather-wrapped shifter and handbrake, black cloth seats, bright-finish 16-inch alloys, a USB port, Bluetooth, a base six-speaker audio system, cruise control, power mirrors and windows, plus LED headlights.
Next, the Club builds off of the Sport by adding a red stitching, a shock tower brace for manual-equipped cars, better front aerodynamics, as well as Bilstein-approved suspension and a limited-slip diff. Following the Club is the Brembo/BBS Package, which adds even a little more flare, with better brakes, better wheels, plus side sill extensions.
Lastly, the trim level that is as lavish as the Mazda MX-5 Miata can get, the Grand Touring package. This model of the vehicles features a nine-speaker Bose Premium sound system, 7.0-inch infotainment system, leather upholstery, three-stage heated seats and automatic headlights. The Grand Touring also features additional sound absorption material, which is the highlight of the fanciest Mazda MX-5 Miata that you can buy.
The Grand Touring package also includes advanced keyless entry. Advanced keyless entry is offered standard on all automatic-transmission-equipped models. It is also available as a $130 option on Sport and Club models equipped with a manual transmission.
The fourth-generation MX-5 returns almost 150 lbs. lighter than its predecessor. The lighter weight comes from greater use of ultra-high-tensile steel as well as aluminum construction. The vehicles is also almost 25 percent more efficient than its predecessor, while still being quicker and more refined. The vehicles features technologies that today’s consumers expect to see.
The car had a very successful 2016 launching, becoming the only vehicle to ever win World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year awards in the same year.
