Your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is here – hope you like red
Mazda has been posting up images of the new Miatas arriving at ports for a few days now. The cars look great and from the images of many rows of cars, it would seem that those waiting to buy will be able to get one of the first cars in about a month or less. Our scrutiny of the images revealed on interesting thing though. They are almost all red.
Red is a wonderful color for a Miata. The outgoing Gen-3, called NC by Miata fans, looked dynamite in red and black in the 2015 Club edition. Without bothering our Mazda contact, we can pretty much guess that red is by far the most popular color if only one could be chosen. So red makes sense.
The Miata is a car that looks fantastic in a number of colors though, and it would be nice to see it live in black at least as a comparison. Triple black (black paint, black leather, and black soft-top) is a very popular choice for many specialty cars.
We’d like to enlist our readers help. If you spot a 2016 Mazda Miata in the wild, please let us know what color you see. If you can grab a photo, post it at our Facebook page.
