2016 Mazda Miata Sport Specs

Looking for a great car for the summer? Look no further, the 2016 Mazda Miata is the ultimate fun-in-the-sun convertible. Just like the car’s design, every driver behind the wheel is wearing a smile. It could be infectious, or it could be the money saved. The 2016 Mazda Miata comes in three trims, the most basic being the Miata Sport.

Engine Specs

The power behind the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 6MT lies under the hood, with a SKYACTIV-G 2.0L I4 VVT engine that reigns in 155-horsepower with 148 lb.-ft. of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is the standard for the Miata Sport, and drivers can look forward to a fuel economy of 27 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway.


Made for an enjoyable summer, the Mazda Miata Sport comes with many convenient features and entertainment. Listen to your favorite tunes on the radio, CD player, or stream audio wirelessly from a Bluetooth audio device. The front seats are adjustable, able to fit the size and height of most drivers, and the leather steering wheel is only missing a pair of driving gloves to complete the summer ensemble. Don’t worry about those summer road trips ever coming to an abrupt stop; a standard feature of the Miata Sport is a trip computer, able to calculate specs like remaining fuel so you can gas up and keep going when appropriate.


When it’s time to pack up for the road ahead, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 6MT has remote keyless entry, and a remote tailgate release so you aren’t fumbling with keys when carrying those beach bags. Come nightfall, the headlights turn on automatically and are LED, giving you more visibility than the standard halogen bulbs found in most cars on the road. The Miata sport rides on 16-inch rims with P195/50 R16 high-performance tires to keep it going strong and looking stylish.


The 2016 Mazda Miata Sport comes with the basic safety features you would expect to keep all passengers safe. The driver and passenger both have front and side airbags if impact were to occur. The car has 4-wheel ABS brakes, electronic brake assistance, and traction and vehicle stability control to keep the driver in control of the car at all times.

Price and Warranty

The Mazda Miata Sport 6MT starts at an MSRP of $24,915; its other trims are equally affordable. It is backed by a basic limited 3-year/36,000-mile warranty, or powertrain 5-year/60,000-mile warranty. In addition, an anti-corrosion warranty that covers bodywork lasts for 5 years and unlimited mileage.
