Now in its fourth generation, the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata boasts a sporty design that gives it a shimmer in sunlight and an intimidating stare at night. Creating an iconic convertible is no easy task, but that's exactly what the MX-5 Miata has become.

Lightweight Balance

Creating the ideal two-seat roadster starts with optimizing its weight. In order to cut down on the weight in the front of the 2018 MX-5 Miata, Mazda designers used SKYACTIV® engine technology. Thanks to this advanced technology, the MX-5 Miata weighs in at 148 pounds less than models from the previous generation. This lightweight design generates a ride so smooth that it almost makes it seem like the car is gliding through the air. The Miata also provides a perfect 50/50 balance when the driver is behind the wheel. This allows it to whip around curves and speed down straightaways.

KODO: "Soul of Motion"

Mazda's KODO: "Soul of Motion" design language is evident in the very essence of the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata. No matter whether the top is in place or stowed away, this roadster holds its own with an athletic stance and intimidating stare. Sweeping body lines emblazon the sides of the Miata. Slick curves generate improved aerodynamics that reduce wind resistance, allowing the Miata to dominate the road with ease.

Masterful Craftsmanship

While many automakers use digital technology to create their preliminary designs, Mazda designers create their initial designs out of clay. Designers use their hands to develop every intricate detail from start to finish, shaping the clay to create the character lines that ultimately translate into a stunning roadster. After the body is designed, the final step in the creation of the Mazda MX-5 Miata is developing a striking paint job. A color designer and master painter work in unison to create a palette of precise colors for each roadster.

Built with caring craftsmanship and designed in a way that enhances both its looks and its performance, the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata is an impressive sight on the road. Whether you're behind the wheel or looking on in awe, the MX-5 Miata demands your full attention.
