Affordability and drive fun being the two main calling cards of the 2020 Mazda Miata MX-5, other goodies can be considered as the support to strengthen these two aspects without compromising on quality and safety for all. Mazda being known for its special technique implementation to establish a strong relationship between the vehicle and its user, wooed the drive enthusiasts around the world with the engaging driving components of the 2020 edition of Miata MX-5 series models.
As we heard the experts discussing at the premise of the San Luis Obispo Mazda dealership that so far they haven’t seen many models that are so affordable and yet offer so much fun behind the wheels. They went on praising and describing how it got their hearts racing when they accelerated to the maximum possible speed on the highway.
The Surprise Elements
What pleasantly surprises the users the most, is without any prodigious horsepower working under the hood or any neck breaking speed, the 2020 Mazda Miata is able to bring the same drive fun and performance that many high powered cars aren’t able to provide.
In other words, the 2020 Mazda Miata is seen to be distilling down the true essence of a sports car, by making space for only two seats, a brief trunk and cozy interior space to keep the body lightweight. The layout of the interior is simple while its driving dynamics let you experience a controlled madness. But where its magic lies, is that not many sports car with so many virtues are available at such an affordable price rate.
Featuring the 2020 Model Year Edition
For the year 2020, Mazda makes the Miata MX-5 ready in the garbs of Sport, Club, and Grand Touring models with increasing amount of features in tune with the ascending order of price amount.
All the trim models of the 2020 Mazda Miata MX-5 series have automatic emergency braking as standard on their list of safety features as well as the blind-spot monitor, though for the base model, the blind spot monitor can be added as an option to its standard safety guards.
Likewise Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional on the base trims but come standard on the Club and Grand Touring Miata models.
What gets still better at the topmost level of the trim tree, is the driving mechanisms that equip the Grand Touring models with manual gearboxes for the drive thrill. With this comes more number of effective performance boosting features like a sport suspension, front shock tower braces, a limited-slip differential, and pairs of Bilstein shocks.
From the popular Mazda dealer near San Luis Obispo we came to know that only the last year, Mazda refreshed the powertrain lineup of the Miata MX-5 models with the introduction of a new engine that is known for making much more horsepower from the same 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that now can return 181 hp which is a good leap from the earlier 155 count after being paired either to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. With these components working under the hood, the 2020 Mazda Miata excels in facing every drive challenge with its truly sporty spirit.
