The Mazda MX-5, released as the Mazda MX-5 Miata in North America and as the Eunos Roadster in Japan, is a lightweight two-seater roadster with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. Manufactured by Mazda in Hiroshima, Japan, the model debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. The MX-5 was conceived as a small roadster – with light weight and minimal mechanical complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements, while being technologically modern and reliable.
Mazda officially unveiled the fourth generation '15 Mazda MX-5 Miata on September 3, 2014 in the United States and Spain. The car is manufactured in Mazda’s Hiroshima plant and was released in the third quarter of 2015. The MX-5 is priced between $24,915 (~€23,000) and $30,065 (~€27,000). On March 24, 2016 the MX-5 was awarded World Car of the Year (WCOTY) and the World Car Design of the Year at the New York Auto Show.
The base model has a 1.5 L 96 kW (129 hp) engine, and the North American (USA and Canada) version has a 2.0 L 116 kW (155 hp) engine.
