2026 Mazda Miata

Last Updated:

These are illustrations of what a next-generation Mazda Miata could look like.

They are obviously based on the new Iconic SP concept we saw just a few days ago. Although we had already seen it in a Mazda corporate video last year.

Most of us expect the Iconic SP concept to influence the next-generation Miata, but the changes shown here are just too much. And the production version shown in the illustrations is just not nearly as good-looking as the concept. The concept is actually almost a foot longer than the current Miata, which could be a problem in a translation to a production model. Or just let the Miata grow a bit, why not? The concert was very well received by everyone and I’m not sure people would mind a slightly longer Miata. The proportions of the illustrations are just too close to the current car.

Either way, it will be interesting to see what Mazda does with the Miata.

  1. I don’t know why we can’t have both? Maybe Mazda will mimic the AMG GT/SL strategy and produce two different vehicles from the same platform, a higher-performance rotary/hybrid RX-90 coupe and a somewhat smaller, slightly decontented MX-50 hybrid roadster? Actually, that sounds closer to the Mercedes 300SL gullwing and 190SL roadster strategy of the 1950s.
