2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Production Starts; Pricing Announced

  • 2016 Mazda Miata is priced from $25,735 with shipping
  • MX-5 Miata will offer three trim levels: Sport, Club and Grand Touring
  • Special Launch Edition model will mark the first 1,000 units of production

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be priced from $25,735 with shipping when it goes on sale this summer. That’s the latest from Mazda, which recently announced that U.S. production of the newly redesigned MX-5 Miata has started and that the first 1,000 units will come in a special Launch Edition configuration.

According to Mazda, the $25,735 figure is for the base-level MX-5 Sport, which features 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, Bluetooth, power door locks, cruise control, a USB port for music and a 6-speed manual transmission. Drivers can add an automatic transmission for $1,075 extra.

Two other trim levels will be offered to shoppers interested in getting more equipment with their MX-5 Miata. For performance-minded drivers, there’s the midlevel Club, which starts at $29,425 and adds such sporty touches as 17-in alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a front air dam and piano-black seatback bars. Meanwhile, shoppers looking for more luxury may want to go for the top-level Grand Touring, which starts from $30,885. Its added items include SiriusXM radio, a Bose audio system, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive headlights, a 7-in touchscreen and Mazda’s latest safety features.

Finally, positioned above all other models is the new MX-5 Miata Launch Edition, which will mark the first 1,000 production units of the MX-5 Miata. Featuring a red exterior and a tan interior, the MX-5 Launch Edition offers Grand Touring equipment levels, as well as optional advanced keyless entry, leaving drivers with just one choice: manual or automatic. It’ll start from $32,090 with shipping.

Although Mazda hasn’t announced an official on-sale date for its fourth-generation MX-5 Miata, we expect to see the first Launch Edition models reaching dealers sometime this summer.

What it means to you: The wait is almost over; the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is nearly here.
