Walkaround Video: 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata / Roadster (ND5RC)

June 10, 2015

Guys, I'll get back to the real "Wasabi Cars" shortly, but I had my first sighting of the as yet unreleased Mazda MX-5, and felt the need to share. Its driver had made the trip from Hiroshima to Northern Kyushu, presumably to see what was up at the 7th Neo-classic Car Festival being held at the time.

This MX5 Convertible was built in 2016. It has a 1,496cc inline 4 engine.
