2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club Gets Bilstein Suspension, Limited-Slip Differential

Improving a product that is a benchmark in its segment is hard work, but Mazda makes it look easy with the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club. The more focused model improves driving performance thanks to significant mechanical upgrades.

Debuting at the New York Auto Show, the Club version of the 2016 MX-5 Miata gets exclusive features including a limited-slip differential, Bilstein shocks and shock tower brace when equipped with the Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual transmission. Other features unique to this model are the 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels shod with 205/45R17 tires and front air dam and rear lip spoilers.

For those who want an even more aggressive look, Mazda offers an optional package for the Club model which brings forged lightweight BBS 17-inch wheels, Brembo front brakes and functional aerodynamic side sill extensions and rear bumper skirt. All these were previewed at the Chicago Auto Show on the MX-5 Miata Accessories Concept as well as on the MX-5 Global Cup race car.

Standard equipment for the MX-5 Miata Club includes the Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-inch color touchscreen display and multi-function commander control, HD and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, two USB ports, piano black side mirrors and seatback bars and a nine-speaker Bose audio system with headrest speakers.
