2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The widely anticipated all-new 2006 Mazda MX-5 is the first total redesign of the lightweight, nimble, open-air roadster since it was launched in 1989. All-new from bumper to bumper and from the wheels to the top, the 2006 MX-5 has grown in size yet the exterior design and shape remain true to the lively roadster concept. Modern style updates include a wider cockpit with additional hip, shoulder and elbow room. The low, flowing shoulder line is complemented by body panels that smoothly wrap around the nose and tail.

The heart of the 2006 MX-5 is a highly-responsive MZR-series 2.0-liter, 170-horsepower (at 6,700 rpm) powerplant. The 2006 MX-5 has a light and compact engine, featuring chain-driven double overhead camshafts, lightweight fly wheel, variable intake valve timing, electronically controlled port fuel injection and coil-on-plug ignition.

Revving smoothly to its 7,000 rpm redline, the 2.0-liter engine delivers 140 lb-ft of torque at 5000 rpm for driving exhilaration throughout the rev range. The all-new MX-5 benefits from three transmission choices: five-speed manual, six-speed manual and six-speed Sport AT automatic. The all-new six-speed manual transmission boasts ultra-short throws, reminding the driver that the 2006 MX-5 Miata is the benchmark for manual transmission feel and performance.
