Mazda MX-5 2016

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 range of configurations is currently priced from $25,973. Our most recent review of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Derek Ogden had this to say at the time: Despite a few niggles, Mazda once again has delivered on a compact open-top two-seater with a perky engine, rear-wheel drive, 50 / 50 front-rear weight distribution, grippy handling at an affordable price. If that’s your bag, what’s not to like.

This is what Derek Ogden liked most about this particular version of the Mazda MX-5: Superb handling characteristics, Great connectivity and safety, 2 litre engine adds much needed power

The Mazda MX-5 is also known as the Mazda MX-5 Miata (North America), the Mazda Miata (North America), the Eunos Roadster (Japan) and the Mazda Roadster (Japan) in markets outside Australia.

Mazda MX-5 2016 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda MX-5 2016 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Best options for a fun convertible?

    The easiest question on record. Get an MX-5 and you'll have all the sunshine and fun you want. The only problem will be choosing between the 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines. Most prefer the "big-bore" engine but I like the engagement you get with the smaller one.

  • Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?

    If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.

  • Mazda MX-5, Toyota 86 or Mustang for long-time V8 driver?

    Wow, that is a major change of direction. Before you make such a change I would suggest you actually test drive each of the cars you're thinking of to see if they really suit you. The Mazda MX-5 is a two-seater and not very practical for instance. It's hard to advise you because we don't anything about what you want from the car you buy. If it was me I would probably buy the MX-5, I would have no problem with a two-seater.
