Spot the Changes: Small Tweaks, Big Impact

You might be wondering, “What’s new?” Well, even though the outside looks pretty similar, there are some cool upgrades.

Check out the snazzy new LED daytime running lights and the sleek LED taillights. And inside, the bigger 8.8-inch display is like the cherry on top, making everything feel more high-tech.


Under the Hood: Making Driving Even Better

Now, let’s dive into what makes the 2024 Miata really special – how it feels when you’re behind the wheel. Get ready for a ride as we explore the soul of this roadster.

Say hi to the new electronic steering rack, which is like having your own personal guide through every curve and corner.

Paired with Mazda’s custom limited-slip differential, you’ll feel like you’re gliding through the road with ease, making each drive a memory you’ll never forget.

Miata’s Fuel-Saving Secret

This little roadster may be small, but it’s mighty when it comes to saving you money at the pump.

With its lightweight build and peppy 2.0-liter engine, the Miata achieves some pretty impressive EPA ratings – up to 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.

But here’s the best part: in real-world tests, both the soft top and hardtop models, rocking the manual transmission, went even further, hitting 36 mpg and 37 mpg respectively on a 200-mile highway jaunt.

Performance Redefined: More Than Just Numbers

Numbers? Who needs ’em when you’ve got the 2024 Miata’s sheer exhilaration at your fingertips? Powered by a spirited 2.0-liter engine, this roadster may not boast earth-shattering horsepower figures, but it’s all about the thrill of the ride.

Whether you opt for the six-speed manual or automatic transmission, every journey is a symphony of excitement and pure driving pleasure.

Tech and Comfort: A Perfect Combo

When you step inside the Miata’s cabin, you’ll feel like you’re entering a sanctuary of comfort and technology. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. 8.8-Inch Touchscreen Infotainment System: The new, larger touchscreen infotainment system may have its quirks, but its presence adds a touch of modernity to the cockpit.
  2. Comfort: Despite its focus on performance, the Miata doesn’t compromise on comfort. Sink into the seats and enjoy the ride, knowing that every journey will be a comfortable one.
  3. Practicality: While practicality may take a back seat to performance, you’ll find everything you need within arm’s reach. Who needs multiple cupholders when you’ve got the open road ahead of you?

Affordable Fun: Everybody’s Invited

Best part? You don’t have to break the bank to own one of these beauties. Prices start at just $30,150, making the 2024 Mazda MX-5 Miata a steal for anyone who loves driving. And with different trim options available, there’s something for everyone.

In Summary

As we look to the future, one thing’s for sure – the Miata will always be about fun. Whether it’s going electric or sticking with what works, Mazda is committed to keeping the joy of driving alive for years to come.

So, what are you waiting for? Swing by Neftin Westlake Mazda and take the 2024 Miata for a spin. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
