New Miata Coming

A new Mazda MX-5 Miata is coming. And after driving the car on the track, it was discovcered to be a superb shifter, but weak lower rpm torque, great seats, and terrific steering, but surprised test pilots at the extent of the body roll on the hardtop model. 

In the acceleration test, the car hit 60 mph in 6.4 seconds and ran the quarter-mile in 14.9 seconds at 92.2 mph. The 2017 Miata RF may have posted a 0.2 mph faster trap speed, but its times were identical.  A negligible difference in braking distances was recorded, but the 2018 model needed 110 feet to stop from 60 mph, while the 2017 convertible needed 109 feet.

On the skidpad, the Miata averaged 0.91 g of lateral acceleration, matching previous test. It also posted a figure-eight time of 26.0 seconds at 0.70 g,  slightly off the 2017 Miata RF’s time of 25.9 seconds at 0.71g. 

Despite that issue, the Miata impressed again. “If you can’t drive this car well, you really can’t drive at all. It’s both a superb car to drive well and incredibly forgiving to those who don’t/can’t.”
