2012 MazdaSpeed MX5 Miata review
Nobody does it
better than Mazda. The 2012 Mazda Speed MX-5 Miata comes with most of
the essentials including tilt power steering, cloth upholstery on front
bucket seats, a split folding rear seat, AM/FM/CD player, clock, and
more. New interior upgrades for this year include two new tweeter speakers
for the modular audio system and black-on-white gauges. The top-level
ES edition adds final upgrade details like the upgraded sound system
fog lights and a rear spoiler.on the out side it looks pretty much the
same but a nosy buyer will definitely spot the change in wheels which
now measures 16 inches & also come with wider rubber P255/R16 .Inside
will also look a tad difference with its new colour scheme options.
The rear wiper now works intermitently that can be operated from the
stalk behind the steering wheel.The Biggest improvement is in the air
-conditioning which now gets dedicated roof-mounted vent for the rear
The totally new 2012 Mazda speed MX-5 Miata brings "soul of a sports car" to the world of midsize sedans. In striking contrast to ho?hum, 4?door family haulers that clutter the marketplace, It also delivers the goods. With up to 220 hp, a sport?tuned suspension system, 4?wheel disc brakes, friction?optimized rack?and?pinion steering, plus a remarkably versatile interior, It has exhilaration?and tons of showroom traffic?written all over it. The 2.9-litre CRDi engine now receives more horses/.The bhp increase from 150 to 163 makes it even more powerful, besides churning out brutal torque of 33.9kgm.The common rail pressure has also been increased to 1600bar which means that fuel injection is more pronounced to sustain the hike in power & torque. The 5-Door's roof line slopes gradually to the rear decklid. Opening the liftgate of the 5-Door reveals a covered cargo compartment with 22.0 cubic feet of space, nearly 50 percent more than that of the sedan.
IIn the 2012 Mazda speed MX-5 Miata, the second-row seats fold with the touch of a lever located near the tailgate with no need to remove the head rests for a near-flat load floor. Tie-downs, a retractable cargo cover shade and a barrier-type net that raises from the floor and attaches to the roof interior all come standard. The rear compartment offers 33.7 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats up and 60.4 cubic feet with them folded, which is in the same league as some small SUVs. Equipped with a 220-horsepower V6 engine, and unlike most wagons, a five-speed manual transmission is standard (five-speed Sport Shift A/T with manual shift mode available).It comes with either a 160 horsepower I-4 (available with five-speed manual or four-speed Sport Shift A/T with manual shift mode) or the 220-horsepower V6 (available with five-speed manual or five-speed Sport Shift A/T with manual shift mode).
