Mazda MX-5 2015

Recommended Posts

There's a video review on SMH Drive at the moment - between the MX-5 and 86. Don't like the rolling nature of the MX-6 much but what a fun car it must to drive.

looks like the fiat 124 spyder clone / twin of the mazda mx5 has been spotted,

looking at the interior between the two, might as well have left the mazda badge there :lol: !

 

 anyways looks like nov release, unless it offers something significantly different with engine/transmission or take on styling I suspect people will probably just take the mazda instead.

Also, Fiat has managed to make their version of the car ugly as sin.

 

goodness knows what they were thinking. sounds like a monumental screw up with the whole program, no wonder the last minute decision to ditch it as an alfa !

Apparently, the MX-5 was marked down to four stars in European testing due to  --  "...the lack of autonomous emergency braking (AEB), which was described by Euro NCAP as “disappointingâ€.

 

The MX-5 is touted as a "driver's car".  Drivers cars are not driven "autonomously".  If this type of "nannying" was seldom encountered, it would be infuriating.  Since it is ubiquitous, it is merely irritating. 

 

BTW, has anyone who posts here actually driven the car yet?

punchier engine, and some styling changes, plus promise of premium materials etc, wonder if differentiated enough from the mazda twin to make it count ?

Fiat must be counting on no one who actually owned a 124 Sport being alive or caring. As good as the MX5 is, the 124 was something else entirely.

Would have preferred they kept it as a simple hardtop - with perhaps even a lighter weight, greater rigidity etc
