Zoom-Zoom

The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata was built on the notion that a car should be an extension of your body, driving should be an extension of your soul.   Mazda engineers understand the essence of jinba ittai which means "rider and horse as one"Mazda engineers strive to make the connection between the driver and every aspect of the vehicle.  They used electromyograms and G sensors to analyze a driver's complete interaction with the vehicle from determining the exact location of the shift lever to which exact muscles and precisely how much effort would be needed to shift.  Every aspect is analyzed and engineered so that there isn't just a connection with the 2013 Mazda MX-5; you are one with it whether you are on your daily commute or speeding down the racetrack. 



The Mazda MX-5 Miata has been racing for the entire 20 years of its existence which relates to another amazing fact: On any given weekend, there are more Mazda's and Mazda-Powered cars being road-raced in the U.S. than any other car!  Spec Miata is the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) largest and most popular amateur racing class.  In terms of pro racing, 2012 marked the 7th season of the SCCA Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup which is an 11-race series that is a true test of talent, attracting many of racing's top up-and-comers.  Mazda is also the official vehicle of the Skip Barber Driving Schools and Race Series - the largest and most successful racing/driving schools on the planet.  All-in-all, the best street cars make the best race cars and the MX-5 Miata lives this loud and clear. 



The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata combines a 2.0-Liter DOHC engine with the ultra-light frame materials and three smooth-shifting transmissions to create the perfect embodiment of Zoom-Zoom!  The super-light, all-aluminum 2.0-Liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine pumps out 167 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque with the manual transmission and 158-horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque with the 6-speed Sport AT automatic transmission.  Lightweight crankshaft and flywheel respond quickly to driver input without added vibration while the Variable Valve Timing (VVT) adjusts intake camshaft position to optimize power and torque.  This engine provides pure driving exhilaration all the while still achieving great fuel economy of up to 28 MPG's! 

There are three available transmission choices for the 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata.  First is the Sport model which is equipped standard with the 5-speed manual transmission with short-throw.  The Touring and Grand Touring models are equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter to provide a more spirited driving performance.  Finally, available for all models, the 6-speed Sport AT automatic transmission is electronically-controlled for precision shifts and can be controlled with shifter or steering-wheel mounted shift paddles. 




Light, strong and balanced are three words that sum up the 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata to the T!  Frame, body and powertrain components are made of high-strength steel and aluminum while a Pressed-aluminum Power Plant Frame (PPF) locks transmission and rear differential into a single unit.  The 2013 Mazda MX-5 achieves a near perfect 50:50 weight distribution and superior rigidity for nimble handling matched with a low center of gravity that better responds to steering inputs to deliver curve hugging performance.  Sports-tuned suspension also adds to the fun-to-drive aspect of this lively MX-5.  Featuring front Independent Double-Wishbone suspension and rear Independent Multilink Suspension help to create a sure-footed connection to the road.  The lighter, aluminum components are designed specifically for the MX-5 Miata decrease the body roll and helps you to take corners and curves with increased confidence.  Front shock tower brace adds stiffness and improves steering feel and is equipped standard on the Touring and Grand Touring models.  Available as part of the Suspension Package on Touring and Grand Touring models are the Bilstein® shocks, limited-slip differential (LSD), and sport-tuning which all help maintain grip and reduce body-roll while cornering.  The Limited-Slip Differential automatically transfers power to the rear wheel with the best traction to ultimately keep your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata controlled and powered through every corner.  All of these features are equipped standard on the special edition models. 



The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata packs a powerful punch when it comes to its exhilarating performance, so it is imperative to have a braking system to keep it in check.  Featuring a 4-wheel ventilated front/solid rear disc brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist.  Ventilated front and solid rear discs provide top-notch braking power and stopping distance while EBD controls pressure between front and rear brakes for more responsive stopping power, based on road conditions, speed and load.  EBD also aides in decreasing brake wear and temperature stress while also increasing stability and pedal force.  Brake Assist hydraulically supplements brake pressure during hard emergency braking, thus enhancing braking performance. 

The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata delivers safety that's ahead of the curve!  The MX-5 offers an array of safety systems and active safety technologies to keep you protected through every twist and turn while remaining the most fun-to-drive roadster on the road today.  Drivers of the 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata can travel with the complete confidence and security in knowing that safety is a top priority of the engineers who built their car. 

The MX-5 Miata is equipped standard with an advanced airbag system to protect you and your passenger at every angle.  Standard advanced dual front air bags with intelligent deployment system adjust to seating position and occupant weight to help avoid accidental or improper deployment while the standard front side-impact air bags provide additional protection in certain side impacts.   A few active safety technologies included on every 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata are the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS).  The Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts drivers when the tire pressure becomes too low which increases safety, performance, handling and gas mileage by making it easy to maintain proper inflation.  A warning light remains illuminated and a beep is heard when tire pressure is too low in one or more tires.  Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) automatically applies select brakes and adjusts engine power output to keep the vehicle on its intended path while the Traction Control System (TCS) reduces power to wheels that lose grip on the road, meaning less slippage when road conditions are poor.  Another exciting feature that is available as part of the Premium Package on Grand Touring and standard on Special Edition models is the Engine-Immobilizer Anti-Theft System.  This system will immobilize the engine if someone attempts to start it without the proper key.
