Manufactured byMazdainHiroshima Japan the model debuted in 1989 at theChicago Auto Show. The MX-5 was conceived as a small roadster – with light weight and minimal mechanical complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements; technologically modern and reliable. The MX-5 is conceptually an evolution of small sports roadsters of the 1960s such as theTriumph SpitfireDatsun 2000Alfa Romeo Spider and particularly theLotus Elan.The MX5's first generation theNA sold over 400000 units from 1989 to 1997 – with a 1.6L (98cuin)straight-4engine to 1993 a 1.8L (110cuin) engine thereafter (with a DE-tuned 1.6 as a budget option in some markets) – recognizable by its pop-up headlights. The second generation (NB) was introduced in 1999 with a slight increase in engine power; it can be recognized by the fixed headlights and the glass rear window although first generation owners may opt for the glass window design when replacing the original top. The third generation (NC) was introduced in 2006 with a 2.0L (120cuin) engine.

Launched at a time when production of small roadsters had almost come to an end theAlfa Romeo Spiderwas the only comparable volume model in production at the time of the MX-5's launch. Just a decade earlier a host of similar models — notably theMG BTriumph TR7Triumph Spitfire andFiat Spider— had been available.

The body is a conventional but lightunibodyormonocoqueconstruction with (detachable) front and rearsubframes. The MX-5 also incorporates a longitudinal truss marketed as the Powerplant Frame (PPF) providing a rigid connection between the engine and differential minimizing flex and contributing to responsive handling. Some MX-5s featurelimited slip differentialsandanti-lock braking system.Traction controlis an option available on NC models. The earlier cars weighed just over a ton with engine power output usually 116bhp (87kW). The later cars were heavier with higher power engines.

With an approximate 50:50 front/rear weight balance the car has nearly neutralhandling. Inducingoversteeris easy and very controllable thus making the MX-5 a popular choice for amateur and stock racing[5]including in the US theSports Car Club of America's Solo2autocrossandSpec Miatarace series and in the UK the5Club Racingchampionship. Raddatz and Otten won the AASAAustralian Endurance Championshipin 2011.

The MX-5 has won awards includingWheels Magazine'sCar of the Yearfor 1989 and 2005;Sports Car International's "best sports car of the 1990s" and "ten best sports cars of all time"; 2005–2006Car of the Year Japan; and 2005AustralianCar of the Year. The Miata has also madeCar and Drivermagazine's annualTen Bestlist 14 times. In their December 2009 issueGrassroots Motorsportsmagazine named the Miata as the most important sports car built during the previous 25 years.

In 2009 English automotive criticJeremy Clarksonwrote:

The fact is that if you want a sports car the MX-5 is perfect. Nothing on the road will give you better value. Nothing will give you so much fun. The only reason I’m giving it five stars is because I can’t give it fourteen.
