The Mazda MX-5 is a two-passenger rear-wheel-drive roadster sports automobile produced and sold by Mazda. The convertible is sold as the Mazda Roadster or Eunos Roadster in Japan, and as the Mazda MX-5 Miata in North America, where it is generally recognized as the Miata.
Created at Mazda's Hiroshima factory, the MX-5 was launched in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. Generally remarked for its light, dynamically balanced, technologically modern, and minimally compact design, the MX-5 is the follower to the 1950s and '60s Italian and British sports automobiles, namely the Lotus Elan.
As the best-selling two-seat convertible sports vehicle in annals, the MX-5 has been sold globally, with making exceeding one million, as of 2016. The name Miata originates from the earliest stage of German language for "reward".
The new Mazda MX-5 Miata is available in three trim levels: Sport, Club, and Grand Touring. All are equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (181 horsepower, 151 lb-ft of torque) in rear wheels drive configuration. The standard on all trims is a six-speed manual transmission, but there is an optional six-speed automatic transmission as well.
