The legendary Mazda Miata is back for another year. We’re here to walk you through what you can expect from the 2020 model year. We’ll go over new features, starting prices, and performance specs.
Let’s get to it.
The 2020 MX-5 Miata is available in two body styles: cabriolet and retractable fastback (RF). There are three different trims for the convertible and two trims for the hardtop.
The 2020 Miata has new standard safety features like forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-departure alert. The performance package will be available again this year on the Club trims, same as previous years. It’s called the Brembo/BBS Recaro Package and it adds Brembo front brakes, BBS 17-inch Dark Gunmetal forged wheels, heated Recaro Sports seats, and a black aero kit with side sill extensions and a rear bumper skirt.
Present in many Mazda vehicles, the 2020 Miata has the Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It produces 181 horses and 151 lb-ft of torque, giving the lightweight roadster quite a bit of power. When it comes to transmissions, there are two choices: a six-speed manual with a short-throw shifter and a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Driving enthusiasts will want the six-speed manual, as it alone gets access to the Brembo/BBS Recaro package and comes standard with track-focused upgrades (on the Club and—for the first time ever—Grand Touring trims). What are those upgrades? There’s a limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, a front shock tower brace, and a sport-tuned suspension. Definitely something you won’t want to miss out on.
