2016 Mazda Miata



So here it is. The all new Miata.

I've been waiting so long for a new model that I'm not quite sure what to think of it.
First, I do hate black wheels. So it's hard to tell, at least for me.
And the black trim around the windshield doesn't help either.

So far it looks more rounded, yet more masculine than before.
It does look a bit cartoony from some angles.

Maybe it's one of these cars that actually looks fantastic in real life.
And I'm sure things are much better with "normal" wheels.

No specs yet. Except it is lighter, lower and shorter (!) than before.

It appears to be much less chick-car-like. That's a VERY good thing!!!

From these pictures it is a yawn. You would certainly expect, after so many years of the same design, something more of substance.

Good design. True to its roots. If I were 2 feet shorter I would buy one (but Im not and this has always been a car only shorties could fit into.) So I have to stick with a car I can fit in--but this is a great car for the "vertically challenged".

It's not quite as good looking as the Z4, but it's still a great looking little car (even if it does look a lot like a tricked-out S2000).

My gripes with it so far are pretty minor: first, the mirrors look like Mickey Mouse ears--they're too round and don't give the car a finished look (I don't mind the black trim on the windshield, though); second, the headlights and front end are just... not quite perfect, and the front end doesn't seem to tie in with the rear of the car very well.

Overall, it looks pretty good though. If the price is within reason, I think it's going to sell better than it has in a long time.

Much like Brennans attempt at the Catalina Wine Mixer, Mazda NAILED it with this one.
