Japanese car manufacturer Mazda introduces the 2016 version of the MX-5 Miata. The fourth generation of the iconic roadster, the latest iteration weighs 220 pounds less than the former version, while also featuring the lowest-ever center of gravity in the series. Mechanical details are still relatively unknown although Mazda has confirmed a “specially tuned SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and the first rear-wheel drive version of the SKYACTIV-Chassis.” Credible rumors point to a 2.0-liter inline four, and possibly, in markets like Europe, an entry-level 1.5-liter. The engines will no doubt be hooked up to a 6-speed manual driving the rear wheels, with an automatic option likely to be offered. Take a look at the vehicle above and look for it to hit roads in the not-so-distant future.
