So as the production of the U.S.-bound 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata begins, the Japanese company finally confirms the MSRP of the new sports car. It starts from $24,915 for the base model and goes up to $31,270 for the Launch Edition which will comprise the first 1,000 units.
The basic 25 grand 2016 Mazda MX-5 Sport is probably the one most people will go for. The Miata, after all, is all about simplicity and lack of excess. Still, it is very well-equipped for a sports roadster, boasting a six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, cruise control, LED headlights and tail lights, Bluetooth phone pairing and audio streaming, leather-wrapped shift knob, power door locks, single USB input and cruise control, as well as 16-inch wheels.
If you want more toys you should get the MX-5 Club for $28,600. It comes with 17-inch gunmetal alloys, front air dam and trunk-mounted rear lip spoiler, piano black seat back bars and exterior mirror caps, MAZDA CONNECT with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and satellite radio with a nine-speaker BOSE audio system with headrest speakers.
The MX-5 Grand Touring is the range-topping version, starting at $30,065 and featuring 17-inch bright alloy wheels, leather-trimmed heated seats, automatic climate control, BOSE nine-speaker audio system, Homelink garage door opener, rain-sensing wipers and adaptive headlights, i-ACTIVSENSE suite, and whatever else you get with the Club.
The Launch edition models, which are based on the Grand Touring, get a number of extras such as Advanced Keyless entry and Mazda-branded BOSE SoundLink speaker in a gift box.
