At the same time, it is an able performer with a powertrain and design that complement one another. Here is a closer look at this impressive convertible. 

The 2021 Mazda MX-5 weighs in at a mere 1,092 kg (with an automatic transmission). The 2.0L SkyActiv-G I-4 engine delivers 181 hp, which gives the two-seater enough muscle to reach 100 km/h in under six seconds. 

Furthermore, the 50/50 weight balance, sport-tuned suspension, and Bilstein shocks provide a responsive ride and the road feel and agility you would expect from a roadster. The rear-wheel drive - with a standard limited-slip differential - and available paddle shifters add to the experience. 

The only way to appreciate the Mazda MX-5 GT is to get behind the wheel for yourself. Contact our BC, Canada dealership to schedule a test drive today.

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.
