MAZDA MIATA / MX-5
More than 25 years ago, the Japanese automaker Mazda has started producing a new series of small roadsters, called "MX-5" (also known as "MX-5 Miata" in North America). Mazda MX-5 is a lightweight, but very dependable vehicle, provided with a variety of modern features. The MX-5 was manufactured in four generations.
The first generation (1989–1997) was called "NA" and was based on the Mazda NA platform. This generation featured 89.2 inches wheelbase and all-steel body shell with a light-weight aluminum hood. The first MX-5 models were equipped with 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Two engine options were provided as well: 1.6 L (98 cu in) B6ZE (RS) I4 and 1.8 L (110 cu in) BP I4 engine.
The second generation (1998 – 2005) was known as "NB" and was built on the Mazda NB platform. This generation came with more aerodynamic design and fixed headlamps that replaced the retractable ones from the previous generation. A new, 6-speed manual transmission was offered. There were new, more powerful engine options as well.
The third generation started in 2005. It was based on the Mazda NC platform and, therefore, it was named "NC". This generation featured 91.7 inches wheelbase and new, front wishbone/rear multilink suspension setup. The 4-speed automatic transmission was replaced by 6-speed automatic one. The third generation also came with two engine options: 1.8 L (110 cu in) MZR I4 (in Europe) and 2.0 L (120 cu in) MZR I4 engine.
In 2015, Mazda launched the fourth generation. It utilizes the Mazda ND platform and is lighter than the previous generation. The new MX-5 is also available with 91.1 inches wheelbase and 2 direct-injection petrol engine options without turbo-chargers. This generation is equipped with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission and features a special, manually operated fabric roof that can be opened or closed almost instantly.
