Well-planted but not stiff
One of the most refreshing things about the MX-5 is its road manners. Where other sporty cars give a sense of sportiness by stiffening up the suspension, the MX-5 manages to feel planted without a back-breaking suspension setup.
Leave it to Mazda’s suspension gurus to build a vehicle that lets you feel the road and be smooth at the same time. The sport-tuned suspension and Bilstein shocks are perfectly customized for just about every situation, from city driving, back-roads switchbacks and pothole-infested highways.
