The evolution of Jinba Ittai

The intuitive relationship between car and driver can be felt in the ultra-responsive handling of the Mazda MX-5. The new generation has experienced a significant weight loss, yet an increased sense of rigidity. An enhanced feeling of balance and control is a result of perfect 50:50 front-rear weight distribution. With a lowered centre of gravity and the engine brought closer to the vehicle’s centre, you’ll experience responsiveness and stability resulting in the purest embodiment of Jinba Ittai yet. The car becomes a true extension of the driver, responding with innate agility to every command.
