New for 2021, available wireless Apple CarPlayTM and new color options are offered on the iconic roadster. Known for its 50/50 weight distribution, the Miata is a well-balanced vehicle to drive on just about any road. The Miata offers an outstanding power-to-weight ratio with its lightweight physique, weighing under 2,500 lbs., and standard Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter engine. This efficient engine is capable of producing 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.
