Car & Driver said this: “ The new MX 5 corners flat and with a lot more confidence. The structure feels heaps stiffer, and the ride is just as compliant”. The NC has a 47% increased torsional stiffness and with its 50/50 weight distribution and rear wheel drive it’s the perfect car to carve up winding roads.
The MX5 or Miata is rear wheel drive, has a naturally aspired 2 litre engine and as a feather weight reaches 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. It is low with a very low centre of gravity to allow for superb cornering and excellent road holding. The mk 3 or NC model has roll over hoops behind the seats and a wind deflector between them to make open top driving more comfortable. And with the top down you can take in all of the countries amazing scenery.
