Hottest New Vehicles to Anticipate in 2015
January 01 2015, Agincourt Mazda
The completely re-engineered and redesigned 2016 Mazda MX-5 debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November. Its gorgeous appearances caught everyone's eyes. However, how does it drive? Chirs Paukert, the executive editor from autoBlog.com, tried to drive a 2016 Mazda MX-5 by himself and wrote his feelings down.
"Here's an uncomfortable truth: I'd rather spend a day driving a properly sorted Mazda MX-5 Miata of any generation on a winding road than I would nearly any other vehicle, regardless of power, price or prestige.
It's not just that I prize top-down driving and enjoy the Miata's small size because it gives me more road to play with. I just find there's more motoring joy to be had with high-fidelity handling and an uncorrupted car-to-driver communication loop than I do with face-distorting power or grip - let alone valet-stand gravitas. But perhaps most of all, I love Miatas because they can deliver that level of feedback and driver reward at modest speeds that won't put the locals on edge or endanger lives - you can use more of the car more of the time.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that I'm more interested in driving the all-new 2016 Miata than I am in any other new car this year. It's tightened up its footprint, it's gone on a diet - around 220 pounds - and it's upped its efficiency and interior quality to boot.
Upon first seeing the new model back in September, I noted: "the Miata is a car that's pretty near to the spiritual center of gravity and moral center of the auto enthusiast world. Only a proper thrashing will really seal the deal, but upon the first encounter, I don't see anything in the new fourth-generation Miata that should endanger that lovefest."
2016 Mazda MX-5, is well worth waiting for!!
