MAZDA MX-5 (1989-1997) CAR HISTORY

Car review on MAZDA MX-5

In the 1980s, sports cars went completely out of fashion, not just passé but completely dead. All the great open sports cars were stamped on: MG, Triumph TR, and Fiat Spider; only the Alfa Spicier could be said to have kept the spark alight, and then only just. Against this background, Mazda made a courageous decision: it would single-handedly engineer the rebirth of the sports car.


That 1989 decision was bold but it paid off handsomely. Other manufacturers may have decided that sports cars were no longer profitable, but the consumer had different ideas. The world still wanted to drive sport scars, and Mazda got the confection absolutely right in its MX-5.

Here was a cheap two-seater open-only topped car with a front-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive. To many onlookers this sounded rather like an MGN, an impression reinforced by the compact, curvaceous shape. Where the MX-5 excelled – and dispelled any criticism of plagiarism – was in its handling. Unlike the antiquated manners of the MGB, the MX-5 was superbly modern: just the right degree of handling aplomb was engineered in for safety and fun.


This was a classic design in which everything was somehow right, from the evocative rear lights and front pop-ups to the simplicity of the specification and the enjoyment factor. Underneath it was brilliantly engineered, with engine, gearbox and final drive carried on a separate sub frame, and double-wishbone suspension for crisp handling.


The interior was kept sparse in the best sporting traditions: little in the way quality and simplicity. The only criticism was over-light power-steering and lack of performance from the 1.6 – liter engine.


In Japan, the car was launched as the Euros Roadster, in Europe it was the MAZDA MX-5 and in America it was the Miata. In each market, the model became a legend. Thanks to its very reasonable price, it was accessible to many drivers and it sold in vast numbers. Admittedly, it had little competition, but there is no denying its essential brilliance. In any case, in many markets the MX-5 sold best in its later years when there was plenty of competition from the likes of the MGF, Fiat Barchetta and BMW Z3. The plain fact was that the little Mazda paved the way for everyone else: it really brought about the renaissance of the sport scar.


Very little changed during its career. The addition of safety features such as side-impact bars and airbags increased its weight, so the MX-5 got a 1.8 liter fuel-injected engine in 1993; a 1.6 liter model was kept going as a bargain entry-level model.


It took until 1997 for a replacement for the MX5 to arrive, and it precisely duplicated the format of this ultra-successful car. By then the MX-5 had become the world’s favorite sports car, with a production tally over 400,000.
