2021 mazda mx 5 for sale in bc canadaThanks to its compact design, 50/50 balance, and 1,066-kg curb weight, the 2021 Mazda MX-5 provides excellent handling. This two-seater also has a full menu of systems that enhance steering, traction, and road grip. 

All 2021 Mazda MX-5 models come with dynamic stability control (DSC). This element uses sensors to assess wheel spin, skidding, and steering input. When the computer detects an issue, it adjusts torque and braking to help the driver regain command of the vehicle. 

The MX-5 also has traction control and anti-lock braking systems (TCS and ABS, respectively), which use the same sensors as the DSC. Furthermore, the steering wheel itself has a standard rack-and-pinion design, but it boasts a unique RPM-sensing feature. This component adjusts the level of the power assistance depending on factors such as engine output. 

The best way to experience these features is to get behind the wheel yourself. Contact our BC, Canada dealership to schedule a test drive in the 2021 Mazda MX-5 today.
