All-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 production gets going!

The assembly line at Ujina Plant No.1 in Hiroshima has started rolling, which means the first copies of the all-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 will hit the Japanese market in June. Customers in other parts of the globe will have to wait a few more months.

The fourth-generation MX-5 (ND) sticks to the same Jinba Ittai philosophy (“rider and horse as one”) that made this small roadster hugely popular among drivers. Lighter than its predecessor and boasting the lowest centre of gravity in Miata/MX-5 history, it gains Mazda's SKYACTIV technology and KODO – Soul of Motion design language. Meanwhile, the interior is optimized for open-top driving.

Can't wait to see the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 arrive in Canada? Neither can we.
