The Mazda MX-5 is a lightweight two-traveler roadster made and showcased by Mazda with a front mid-motor, back wheel-drive format. The convertible is promoted as the Mazda Roadster (マツダ・ロードスター Matsuda Rōdosutā) or Eunos Roadster (ユーノス・ロードスター Yūnosu Rōdosutā) in Japan, and as the Mazda MX-5 Miata/miˈɑːtə/in North America, where it is generally known as the Miata.
Made at Mazda’s Hiroshima plant, the MX-5 appeared in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show and was imagined and executed under a firmly engaged structure philosophy, Jinba ittai (人馬一体), which means unity of steed and rider. Broadly noted for its little, light, mechanically current, progressively adjusted and insignificantly complex plan, the MX-5 is the profound successor to 1950s and ’60s Italian and British sports cars, noticeably the Lotus Elan.
Ages were inside assigned with a two letter code, starting with the original, the NA. The subsequent age, (NB), propelled in 1998 for MY 1999; trailed by the third era (NC) in 2005 for MY 2006, and the fourth era (ND) in 2015 for MY 2016 (alongside “ND2” being the assignment for MY 2019).
