Mazda MX-5 Miata

Email   small font medium font large font

For the 2006 model year, the popular Mazda MX-5 received its second redesign since it was first launched in 1989. For 2007, the third-generation MX-5 Miata adds minor interior features and offers two new exterior colors. The heart of the MX-5 remains a highly-responsive MZR-series 2.0-liter, 170-horsepower (at 6,700 rpm) powerplant. The 2006 MX-5 has a light and compact engine, featuring chain-driven double overhead camshafts, lightweight fly wheel, variable intake valve timing, electronically controlled port fuel injection and coil-on-plug ignition. Revving smoothly to its 7,000 rpm redline, the 2.0-liter engine delivers 140 lb-ft of torque at 5000 rpm for driving exhilaration throughout the rev range.

The convertible top remains the very model of simplicity: from the driver or passenger seat, release a single windshield-header latch and just push the top backwards. That’s it – no bulky or cumbersome boot or tonneau covers, and no need to get out of the car.

Enhancements to the 2007 MX-5 include:

  • New power retractable hardtop model (specific product information will be available closer to launch)
  • Added one-touch power-down passenger window (in addition to one-touch driver window) to Sport models with Convenience Package as well as Touring and Grand Touring models
  • Two new exterior colors – Stormy Blue and Highland Green
