Mazda's much-loved MX-5 Miata is getting a nip and a tuck for the 2024 model year. While this small refresh is technically long overdue, as the ND-generation roadster has been on sale since 2015, we think the Miata has aged very gracefully.



Starting with the cosmetic changes, the Miata has received more modern LED signatures for its headlights and taillights, along with new wheel designs and a new $450 Aero Gray exterior color option. The cabin gains a new 8.8-inch infotainment display, an improved gauge cluster, and some extra padding for the center console. There's also a newly-available tan Nappa leather upholstery option that can be had for an extra $300 on the range-topping Grand Touring model.


The changes go beyond the Miata's exterior, however, as the roadster receives a whole new steering rack and tweaks to the software calibration for the electric steering assist. There's also a new limited-slip differential called "Asymmetric LSD," which offers improvements to stability and cornering while reducing excessive oversteer and understeer. The stability control system adds a new "DSC-Track" setting, which is said to increase the system's intervention.



Things remain the same under the hood, where the Miata continues to be powered by a 2.0 liter inline-four engine making 181 hp. That power is routed to the rear wheels only through a standard six-speed manual, though the most expensive Grand Touring variant offers a six-speed automatic.


Pricing for the 2024 Miata has risen quite a bit––$935 to be exact. The softtop model begins at $30,150 for the Sport trim, while the retractable-hardtop Miata RF climbs even higher to $38,115. The updated roadster should begin arriving at showrooms very soon, as Mazda has promised that it will release the model before spring.
