Driving should be fun and stylish — which could be the motto of the 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata. As the brand’s only sports car and one of its most emblematic models, the Miata set the standard for affordable, powerful, fun driving when it first debuted in 1989.
Now, more than 30 years later, the 2023 Miata lives up to its legend with top-of-the-line technology and features to go with incredible performance.
Drivers already love the Mazda MX-5 Miata for its standard six-speed manual transmission, two-liter 181 horsepower (hp) engine, and perfectly balanced body that allows for precise handling and control.
Developed using the same human-centric KODO design philosophy as other Mazda models, the entire design of the 2023 MX-5 Miata is built around the driver’s experience and comfort. This includes the Kinematic Posture Control brake system upgrade that was introduced in 2022 and is now standard on all 2023 models.
In addition, all 2023 MX-5 Miata models feature a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and advanced safety features. Notably, Mazda also introduced the world to a new body color in 2023, the stylish Zircon Sand Metallic. This option joins iconic tones like Solu Red Crystal Metallic and Jet Black Mica on the Club and Grand Touring MX-5 Miata editions.
The most noticeable feature of the two-door MX-5 Miata is its black cloth roof that opens and retracts in an impressive 13 seconds for a true all-weather driving experience. The seven color choices of the 2023 model range from the bright Soul Red Crystal Metallic to the all-new Zircon Sand Metallic, allowing for plenty of personal expression within the three trim levels of the MX-5 Miata.
Inside this two-seat sports car, drivers are treated to the same intuitive design — the human-centric KODO design philosophy of the brand — as found in larger Mazda vehicles. Top features also include a custom-designed eight-speaker Bose® audio system in the Club and Grant Touring trims along with a leather wrapped steering wheel.
The power and precision of the MX-5 Miata is hard to deny. Its two-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine delivers up to 181 horsepower (hp) with up to 151 foot-pounds of torque. All MX-5 Miata models offer front-wheel drive with manual transmission as standard features in the Sport and Club models, and automatic transmissions available in the Grand Touring models.
The technology of the Mazda MX-5 Miata is also on point and includes a 7-inch full color touchscreen infotainment system in all models. Additional features include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, hands-free phone and audio streaming, and speed-sensing automatic volume control, perfect for those days when you have to drive with the top down.
The 2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata comes equipped with many standard and advanced safety features. These include dual front and side impact air bags and side impact door beams. Advanced safety technology, such as brake support, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and lane departure warning systems, further enhance the driving safety experience.
The three trim levels of the 2023 MX-5 Miata are the Sport, Club, and Grand Touring, all of which offer the same fuel economy number: 26 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. Furthermore, with the Sport model starting as low as $28,050, the 2023 MX-5 Miata remains an affordable and powerful option for the sports car enthusiast.
