The respected and fundamental driving dynamics of the 2016 MX-5 are fuelled by the need to build a sports car that’s lightweight, strong and a total blast to drive. It’s in our DNA – and our groundbreaking SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY. SKYACTIV makes for a lighter, stiffer and safer vehicle that also achieves the elusive feat of fuel efficiency, low emissions and outstanding driving performance. While you may not think about this when you’re tearing it up on a backcountry curve, it matters to us that you get the most out of your sports car.
