Base 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata to start at $25,735

Base 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata to start at $25,735

The new Mazda MX-5 Miata will start at $25,735. That’s a price bump of $1,125 over the outgoing 2014 model. Prices include $820 shipping.

Mazda has completely rebuilt the Miata, shaving more than 150 pounds, and developing an all-new chassis and a lightweight suspension.

“As we get closer to the MX-5's summer on-sale date, we're seeing a surge in interest and excitement from enthusiasts and journalists," Jim O'Sullivan, CEO of Mazda North American operations, said in a statement. “Already, early MX-5 reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, and we expect the momentum that MX-5 has garnered to continue to build as drivers get behind the wheel of our fourth-generation sports car.”

Jalopnik.com reported the price was first announced on “Live With Kelly And Michael” this morning.

The Miata will spawn a Fiat Spider version, and could see more competition if Mini builds the Superleggera two-seat roadster.

The fourth-generation MX-5 Miata is scheduled to arrive at dealers this summer.

Mazda plans to sell the Miata in three trim levels: Sport, Club and Grand Touring. Compared to the Sport trim, the Club trim has more aggressive styling and performance upgrades, while the top-of-the-line Grand Touring trim adds creature comforts. Mazda has not revealed pricing for the Club and Grand Touring trim levels.

U.S. customers may struggle to find a Miata anywhere near the entry-level sticker price at launch. Demand often exceeds supply at launch for cult favorites such as the Miata, prompting automakers to fill their first shipments with richer, top-of-the-line cars. Later, once supply has caught up with demand, they sell cheaper base models in greater numbers.
