It takes conviction to stand up to the naysayers. A creative ﬁre that’s unafraid of the blank page. And the courage to ﬂip conventional wisdom on its head. Because this is the only way to change the game. And the only way to build cars worth driving. Today, Mazda is changing the game. With innovative thinking and technologies. Head-turning designs. And performance that never compromises. Making every Mazda more exhilarating to drive. These are actions, not words. Proof, not theories. Making the impossible possible. This is the Mazda Way.
“Jinba ittai, or ‘rider and horse as one,’ was our guiding principle during

the MX-5’s development. The result is a car so nimble, well-balanced and fun to drive that the driver and car achieve true unity.” Takao Kijima: Program Manager, Mazda MX-5 Miata (1995–2007)
ANCIENT TRADITION. MODERN APPLICATIONS.
For 15th century Japanese horse archers, complete freedom with the bow and arrow came only with an unwavering bond to the horse galloping beneath them. With this trust in place, along with carefully acquired skills with the bow and arrow, archers caught food to feed their families and fought wars to protect them. Today, this concept of jinba ittai, or “rider and horse as one,” is the inspiration for the MX-5 Miata—a car so precisely tuned with its driver, it’s undeniably enjoyable to drive.
THIS IS THE 2014 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA.

it tAkes obsession to find bAlAnce.
Courageous engineering. It’s the Mazda Way. And to create the Mazda MX-5 Miata, a car that’s near perfectly balanced— that seems to anticipate a driver’s every move—is only achieved through the courage, creativity and conviction of quality-obsessed engineers. Engineers that take into account every bolt, every wire and every stitch to achieve near-perfect 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution. And the MX-5 is even precisely engineered to account for one more variable—you, the driver. And in doing so, they created a vehicle that couldn’t be balanced until a driver is sitting in the driver’s seat. The result: You complete it. Because at Mazda, we don’t just engineer cars. We engineer harmony.

engineer with courAge, creAtivity And conviction And you get the world’s best-selling roAdster.
Doing what can’t be done is the Mazda Way. And for more than two decades, we’ve never relented in our goal of defining and redefining what a roadster is meant to be. Unwavering, uncompromising and committed to true sports car authenticity, the MX-5 has always been—and will always be—the track-proven real deal. Daring, nimble and precisely balanced, the MX-5 is an automotive icon and an engineering marvel that’s built to dominate the open road, master every curve and effortlessly transform instinct into action. But to truly understand why it’s the best-selling roadster of all time, you need to be in the driver’s seat.

OBJECTS IN MIRROR HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CATCH UP FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES.
The fact that the MX-5 Miata has been racing for its entire 22 years relates directly to another amazing fact: On any given weekend, more Mazdas and Mazda-powered cars are road-raced in the U.S. than any other car.* The lightweight, rigid and balanced Miata is even the most-raced car in the Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) largest and most popular amateur racing class. And in terms of pro racing, 2013 marked the eighth season of the SCCA Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup. Now an 11-race series, the MX-5 Cup attracts many of pro racing’s top

up-and-comers. A true test of talent and technique, drivers compete in identically prepped MX-5 Miatas on many of America’s legendary racecourses, including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Mazda is also the official vehicle of the Skip Barber Driving Schools, Racing Schools and Race Series—the largest, most successful racing/driving schools on the planet. Among its fleet of 170 race cars, there are no less than 60 Mazda MX-5 Cup Miatas. Bottom line: The best street cars make the best race cars. And the MX-5 has been—and still is—the most road-raced of them all.

speed is nothing without control.
The MX-5’s near 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution is crucial to its legendary handling. Its front-midship-engine placement and rear-wheel-drive layout enhance balance and directional control. Helping to keep the MX-5 firmly anchored to the pavement is a track-tuned suspension that delivers superb handling and directional stability by combining a sophisticated double-wishbone layout up front with an advanced multilink setup in the rear. A hollow front stabilizer bar is partnered with four gas-charged shock absorbers and a solid rear stabilizer bar to minimize body roll and maximize cornering grip. Manual transmission models come equipped with a torque-sensing limited-slip differential, and all models come equipped with Dynamic Stability Control* with an integral Traction Control System that optimizes both traction and handling in less than ideal road conditions. The result: handling that borders on telepathic.
*Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether DSC will be effective in preventing loss of control. Please see your owner’s manual for further details.

PERFORMANCE IS IN THE DETAILS.
Performance isn’t about what’s under the hood. It’s about how what’s under the hood works with everything else.
When a vehicle is near perfectly balanced, even the smallest variation can have a huge impact. Keeping the MX-5 balanced on the road required taking into account every weight-bearing variable—down to the stitching in the upholstery. This obsession led to the use of distinct sets of precisely calibrated springs to balance out even the smallest change in weight between each MX-5 model, including the weight of its individual option packages. Finely tuned to account for all those twists and turns the road has in store, each and every MX-5 is precisely engineered to create a balance of stiffness for control and softness for comfort and stability.
Drivetrain twist wastes power and produces acceleration lag. To help eliminate that, Mazda engineers gave the MX-5 a solid structural “backbone”—an ingenious aluminum Power Plant Frame that unites engine, transmission and differential into a single rigid unit.
A precise and ultra-responsive short-throw, close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox is standard on both the MX-5 Club and Grand Touring, a 5-speed manual is standard on the Sport, and a 6-speed Sport AT is also available on most models. For enhanced control, the Sport AT allows you to shift manually via either the console-mounted shifter or steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. No matter which you choose, each of the MX-5’s three smooth sport-shifting gearboxes becomes an extension of your arm, transforming anticipation into exhilaration.
Every driver knows that when it comes to a sports car, slowing down is just as important as speeding up. The MX-5’s ultra-responsive 4-wheel disc brakes with lightweight calipers come standard with anti-lock brakes and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, ensuring linear fade-resistant stopping power whether you’re on the track or on the road.
A free-revving MZR 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC engine delivers an assertive 167 hp and 7,200 rpm redline without sacriﬁcing fuel efﬁciency, offering an impressive EPA-estimated 28 highway/ 22 city MPG.* Gear heads: Wrap your heads around ﬁnely tuned details such as internal friction-reducing molybdenum-coated pistons, variable valve timing, electronically controlled port fuel injection, an electronic throttle and ultralight ﬂywheel, and block and cylinder heads cast from a weight-saving aluminum alloy.
*Based on EPA estimates for 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport models with 2.0L engine and manual transmission 22 city/28 highway MPG. Actual results will vary.
A cAr should be An extension of your body. driving should be An extension of your soul.
Blur the line where man ends and machine begins. Every Mazda engineer understands the essence of jinba ittai—“rider and horse as one.” A horse and its rider communicate by being instinctively in tune with each other. To achieve that same effortless communication behind the wheel, Mazda engineers used multiple electromyograms and G sensors to analyze a driver’s complete interaction with the vehicle. From determining the exact location of the shift lever, to which muscles and precisely how much effort would be needed to shift, every aspect of the drive is engineered to not just connect you with your MX-5, but to make you one with it.
