2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Filing for an Extension

by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on December 1, 2015

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

My love for our 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is nothing new by now, but as promised, here's an imperfection: The steering wheel doesn't telescope.

At 5-foot, 10-inches, I'm not unusually tall. Well, maybe in Japan I would be, but here I'm just average. And that bums me out with the Miata. That steering wheel is just a little bit too far away from me than I prefer. As a result, I sacrifice legroom by scooting the seat forward once click and angling the seatback forward another click.

It's not optimal, but it's not a dealbreaker either.

You'd think that they'd add a telescoping wheel, though, especially for the U.S. market. C'mon Mazda, get on that.
