Safety Features of the New Miata


The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata features an unprecedented selection of safety technologies. This two-seat roadster boasts a well-balanced rear-wheel-drive layout. Add to it precise steering and the available limited-slip differential, and you are looking at a very safe vehicle to drive around. The MX-5 Miata is one car that can take on turns and corners very safely without taking the fun out of the drive. Mazda has tuned the 2016 MX-5 for a pronounced body roll during aggressive cornering to enhance driver engagement. This is unusual in a sports car, however, you are definitely not going to complain about it when you are behind the wheels, it is that fun and engaging. The outward visibility of the MX-5 Miata is excellent.

Standard safety features on the MX-5 Miata includes stability and traction control, side-mounted airbags, and antilock disc brakes for all the trim levels.

The MX-5 Miata Sport features LED taillights and headlamps and a driver seat that is height adjustable.

The MX-5 Miata Club (manual transmission) features a sport-tuned suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers, a limited-slip differential, and a shock-tower brace. None of these are available for the Club with automatic transmission. 17-inch wheels with summer performance tires, a rear lip spoiler, and a sport front fascia are standard on all Club models. Voice controls and the center console-mounted auxiliary control knob provides for additional safety as well. The Brembo/BBS package available exclusively for the manual-transmission Club models includes 17-inch forged BBS wheels.

The MX-5 Miata Grand Touring features a safety package that includes lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a blind-spot monitor. The GT is also equipped with adaptive headlights with automatic high-beam control, a navigation system, and auto-dimming mirrors.

Some of the other safety features include:

  • Emergency braking assist
  • Vented front disc and Solid rear disc brakes
  • Tire pressure monitoring
  • Engine immobilizer
  • Daytime running lights
