IRVINE, California — The redesigned 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata convertible starts at $25,735, including an $820 destination charge, reflecting a $945 price increase over the previous model, Mazda North American Operations announced on Monday.
The MX-5 Miata arrives at Mazda dealerships this summer.
Three trim levels will be available: Sport, Club and Grand Touring.
The MX-5 Miata Sport is the base model. The MX-5 Club offers "a more aggressive appearance and driving experience," the automaker said. The Grand Touring model is the most luxurious version with "premium amenities."
Pricing for the Club and Grand Touring models will be announced later, along with full specifications, options and packages.
Standard equipment on the base model includes a six-speed manual transmission, LED headlights, USB audio input, Bluetooth, a leather-wrapped shift knob and power door locks.
The new MX-5 Miata is significantly lighter than the outgoing model, with an upgraded interior.
Edmunds says: Despite the price increase, the Mazda MX-5 Miata remains an affordable choice for car shoppers.
