2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Nominated for Motor Authority’s “Best Car to Buy” Award
While the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata features 12 fewer horsepower than last year’s model, the 2016 version still manages a 0-to-60 time of only 6 seconds, which is approximately a half-second faster than the 2015 Miata. That improved speed, along with the vehicle’s excellent handling, earned the Mazda MX-5 Miata a nomination for Motor Authority’s annual Best Car to Buy award.

The 2016 MX-5 features a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission, which combine to produce 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. For those people who don’t enjoy manual transmissions, there is also an available six-speed automatic with steering-wheel shift paddles.
Kirk Bell of Motor Authority said that “the Miata offers more fun pound-for-pound and dollar-for-dollar than any car on the market.” Bell went on to compliment the MX-5’s extra-sensory handling, which allows the vehicle to make quick, sharp turns.
Other cars that have been nominated for the award include the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S, 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV, 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, and the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.
Motor Authority will announce the winner of the yearly Best Car to Buy award via its web site on January 4th.
