DescriptionEdit

  • The Eunos Roadster was sold as the Mazda MX-5/Miata in the Europe/US.

The Eunos Roadster captured the imagination of the world as soon as it made its appearance in September 1989. We know it better as the Miata, and it revived the category of the lightweight convertible sports cars, bringing the classic genre back into the limelight. With a light and compact body, rear-wheel-drive and a simple-yet-straightforward 1.6-liter DOHC inline-4, the Roadster was as fun to drive as it was good looking. It came powered by the 1.6-liter Type B6-ZE that produced 118 HP and 101.2 lb-ft of torque. The suspension system consisted of double wishbones at all four corners, while the brakes were discs at both front and rear.

Mazda wanted to make sure that its new creation acted like part of the driver's body, going wherever the driver wanted in an effortless way. Thus, the phrase "rider, horse, one body" was adopted as its guiding principle.

In August 1993, a new engine, the 1.8L DOHC Type BP-ZE, was placed under the hood, with output increased to 128 HP and 115.7 ft-lb of torque. The next round of changes came in August 1995 when the final gear ratio and flywheel were modified, thus creating the 1800 Series II. Mazda produced 531,890 units through the end of 1997, setting a world record for production of a 2-passenger open vehicle, a fact recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records.
