2016 Mazda MX-5 MiataManteca and Stockton drivers will be happy to hear the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata was named Fresh Ride of the Year by Yahoo Autos because of its impressive performance and impeccable style. It beat out competitors including the new Audi TT, the venti-sized Fiat 500X, and the off-road-centric Jeep Renegade. While all of these vehicles were fine competition, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata stood head-and-shoulders above them to earn the title of Fresh Ride of the Year.

Impressive Powertrain

It’s tempting to think the Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 155-hp engine would offer less-than-impressive performance — but even when driven back-to-back with the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, critics were overwhelmed by the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

While the 155 hp in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is less than some of its competitors, it’s also significantly lighter than its rivals, and the 2.0L naturally aspirated motor lets drivers go from 0-60 in under six seconds. It also still maintains impressive efficiency — up to 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city — thanks to its cutting-edge powertrain and lightweight frame.

Impeccable Style

Gone are the days of the minimalist sports car — the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata has Yahoo Autos raving about its luxurious interior and expressive exterior. With a taut, muscular design that features artful LED daytime running lights, a shorter and sleeker profile the last year’s model, and signature rounded tail lamps, the latest Mazda MX-5 Miata is a cut above the rest. Lanthrop and Turlock drivers will also enjoy a first-class cabin that is available with features like:

  • Bluetooth for effortless connectivity
  • 9-speaker Bose audio system
  • Diamond-shaped stitching on the available leather-trimmed heated seats
  • Alloy pedals
