2016 Mazda Miata Comes In At Under $25k
March 30th, 2015 10:57 AM Share
According to numerous media reports, Mazda has announced a base price of $24,950 for the next Mazda MX-5.
A current model MX-5 costs $23,970. Given that the new car is smaller, lighter and is only slightly down on power (not that it matters, thanks to the lower curb weight) and is a thoroughly modern package inside and out, the $980 premium is a small price to pay. If anyone in Canada wants a gently used Mazda3 with very low lease payments, get in touch with me.

krhodes1, your logic is like mine, with this twist: since I have a Miata, when I think of adding a second fun car that's a roadster (Spitfire included), I think I shouldn't get a second roadster, but something different. Like the '65 Corvair Corsa offered for sale on a street near me, for example. Funny how that body style now looks cool to me. There are so many Miatas on the used market: my '96 cost only $3800 three years ago and is still valued at that much or more, and it's completely reliable and gives the full Miata experience. The 16-year-old who sold it to me said, "the chics dig this car," so I guess it's true that it's a chic car.
I'm liking it already!
The only question for me is how well it will fit me, as a guy with a long torso and short legs - my current NB Miata has had a big chunk of seat foam taken out so my head would stop hitting the roof. Aside from that, I'm all in. I like the styling more than the NC version, and as I get older side airbags start looking more attractive. Now I just to need to wait until the dealers stop asking for a premium for early adopters.
Nice looking car. From some angles the head lights look small others they look fine. But smaller is always better. Review it first Derek, share with us, make your decision, then only then sell the 3, :).
