We’ve never met a Miata we didn’t like. Sure, the internet and fans alike are not always kind to the 3rd generation NC but we’d give one a home in a heartbeat. The current 4th generation ND is, unfortunately for purists, the best-driving of them all and also the most advanced. For 2021, the Mazda MX-5 gets more features and a few extra colours hues, both inside and out.
Always at our service is the naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre 4-cylinder which was upgraded to 181 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque for 2019. A 6-speed manual or no-cost automatic transmissions are still available.
In Canada, trims begin with the GS ($33,200) and it includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display, and much more. The GS-P ($37,200) is the first trim for the ultra-cool RF ($40,200) and, when fitted with the manual gearbox, includes a limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, front shock tower brace and sport-tuned suspension. It can further be equipped with a Sport package ($4,400) that adds Brembo front brakes, BBS 17-inch Dark Gunmetal forged wheels, heated Recaro Sports Seats, and red-painted rear brake callipers.
The GT ($40,300 – RF: $43,300) includes all of the GS-P’s features (Bose audio, heated seats, LED lights, and more) and adds wireless Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, and more. The new exterior colour Deep Crystal Blue, and White Nappa leather is a new interior colour option for the GT trim. Also available to choose on the MX-5 RF GT are the Exclusive Package ($900) or Grand Sport Package ($3,600).
Finally, there’s also the 100th Anniversary Edition which is priced from $41,800 (RF $44,800).
The 2021 Mazda MX-5 arrives in Canadian dealerships in February. In the US, the 2021 Sport, Club and Grand Touring are showing up in dealerships this month.
