2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for Sale in Elk Grove, CA

Come Take a True Roadster for a Spin


It takes minute adjustments to make the perfect roadster – Nobuhiro Yamamoto, a member of the Mazda R&D team from the 1991 Le Mans win, can attest to that. Leading the Mazda MX-5 Miata design team, he created a light, compact body with a 50:50 weight distribution that offers unheard of precision and handling. There are numerous other reasons that the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale in Elk Grove, CA, deserves appreciation, and coming in for a test drive at Mazda of Elk Grove will likely present them all succinctly and thrillingly!

Weight plays a huge role in how well a vehicle maneuvers. It’s always been the goal of our designers to hit that 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution while keeping the body of the vehicle close to the ground. Yamamoto lowered the engine through meticulous adjustments to create a lower center of gravity and, by pushing it just the slightest bit back, was able to retain that carefully balanced ratio. On top of those changes, the Mazda MX-5 Miata managed to drop 148 lb. through rigorous scrutiny – as a result, you feel hyper engagement with your ride and find immediacy in every turn of the wheel. 


Let’s talk about the gears and pistons at the heart of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale in Elk Grove, CA. Since it was required that the sheet metal of this roadster tone up, the engine was expected to do the same. Losing 22 percent of its mass, the 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC 4-cylinder engine pumps out 155 horsepower and sips gas frugally with the fuel rating of 36 MPG hwy1. Both remarkable numbers that were achievable using the SKYACTIV®2 Technology that promotes never sacrificing either power or frugality at any stage of the vehicle-building game.

If this all sounds technical and indecipherable, let’s look at this another way: for 26 years, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been hitting the pavement with its 16-inch alloy wheels, and, on any weekend you can think of, more Mazdas and Mazda-powered vehicles are road-raced in the US than any other car3. It’s because Mazda designers are, and always have been, committed to what a roadster is meant to be: a revving engine on wide open roads down the coastline. 

Finding perfection is easy when you come to Mazda of Elk Grove – we’ll point you directly to the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale in Elk Grove, CA. It offers expert handling thanks to its expert team of designers, and the kind of exhilaration you won’t find elsewhere. Come down to 8588 Laguna Grove Drive in Elk Grove, CA, and see for yourself!
