2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Does It Actually Get Any Better Than This? - Ignition Ep. 137
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack, Jonny Lieberman heads to Scotland to get his hands on the latest iteration of Mazda’s famed and legendary roadster, the Miata. Motor Trend, having much to do with the creation of the first generation of this car, was particularly excited about covering this new model, considering the last generation model debuted nearly 10 years ago. The new Miata, featuring a 2.0l engine outputting 155 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, aims to accomplish what made the original Miata such a good car, but is it actually better than the first, second, and third generation cars? Stay tuned while Jonny finds out.
