If you must, a 6-speed automatic is available, and it's the sole carryover component from last year's model. However, Club models with the handling package also sport notably better brakes from Brembo. It comes standard with an all-new 6-speed manual transmission, and even if you don't know how to drive stick, it's worth learning just so you can enjoy this one. First is smart keyless entry which is extra on manual-transmission models, but comes along with the automatic transmission, which is also optional across the board. Either way, you'll fill it with premium unleaded, but with up to 36 mpg on the highway, you won't do it often. .
While most upgrades are available only through model levels, there are a couple noteworthy stand-alone options. Also standard is a 6-speed manual transmission. It's just one additional click on the recline mechanism, but for tall drivers, that single click is huge. The suspension is firm enough for spirited cornering, but not so harsh that it rattles your teeth. Grand Touring models get leather upholstery and navigation. All fees and programming subject to change.
It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. It's similar to the new Mazda3, with an upright infotainment screen on the dash, push-button start on some models, and a surprising amount of soft-touch materials, considering last year's hard-plastic everything. Smart City Brake Support operates under certain low-speed conditions between about 2 and 18 mph. Despite the small size, it's surprisingly accommodating for tall drivers, with a tilt steering wheel, and a convertible top that affords good headroom. Ostensibly, competitors include convertible versions of the Camaro and Mustang, but they're considerably more expensive.
If you decide to continue service after your trial, the subscription plan you choose will automatically renew thereafter and you will be charged according to your chosen payment method at then-current rates. It also adds a notable amount of weight, and despite the manual-shift mode, we still think it's worth getting the manual. Cruise control is also standard, and the little steering wheel is packed with audio and cruise-control buttons. The action is light, the shifts are short, and the clutch operation is simply spot-on. This is the most radical departure from the original Mazda Miata since pop-up headlights disappeared in the 2nd-generation car. Club models include the Mazda Connect infotainment system with its touch-screen display and multifunction knob, plus headrest speakers. Factors including movement and shape of the object in front of the vehicle, weather and road conditions can all impact automatic brake control and collision warning.
There's even a usefully sized trunk. Current information and features may not be available in all locations. The three models are distinguished by subtle exterior differences, mainly in the wheels. . . . .
