2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Concept Shows Performance Accessories

This concept version of the all-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata provides a look at some of the dealer accessories the automaker plans to sell. Mazda outfitted a white roadster with a host of add-ons at the 2015 Chicago auto show to allow MX-5 buyers to tailor the roadster to their own liking.

Visually, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata concept sets itself apart with the inclusion of the new aero kit, which adds a front air dam, side sill extensions, a rear bumper skirt, and a rear lip spoiler. The kit is only available in gloss black, and matches the one found on the 2016 MX-5 Global Cup Car.

The Accessories Concept Design rides on special 17-inch black BBS wheels, shod in 205/45R17 tires. These wheels clear the larger and more aggressive front Brembo brake package, which includes red-painted brake calipers on all four corners.

One of the most interesting accessories available on the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a carbon-fiber luggage rack, displayed separately from the concept. Impressively weighing under two pounds, the luggage rack mounts on the rear decklid of the car to help buyers transport more stuff on roadtrips, and includes an integrated third brake light. Mazda has not yet said when or if any of these accessories will be put into production.

The concept is powered by the 2.0 liter inline-four engine that will be standard on the U.S.-spec 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, which channels 155 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Overseas, Mazda will also offer the MX-5 with a 1.5-liter engine rated for 129 hp and 111 lb-ft of torque.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019.

Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
