Actually saw one on the road today coming home, I was amazed. Not very common you see a Lotus driving around on everyday roads.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Curb Weight in Perspective

Weighing 2,332 lbs with a manual transmission, the 2016 Mazda MX-5 is poised to be one of the lightest and most affordable sports cars available today.

1990 Mazda MX-5: 240 lbs lighter

The MX-5 has always been a lightweight, with the first 1990 MX-5 Miata weighing in at 2,092 lbs. Of course, that was back in 1989 when safety standards weren’t as tough as they are today. The first-gen Miata is 240 lbs lighter than its modern counterpart while offering modern safety features like stability control, ABS and one airbag for the driver. In 1994 Mazda added an optional passenger airbag.

For a more direct comparison, the current 2015 Mazda MX-5 weighs 2,480 lbs with a manual transmission, which makes it 148 lbs heavier than the new model.

Cars that Are Lighter

Lotus Elise: 401 lbs lighter

Is the MX-5 the lightest sports car on the road? Certainly not because the Lotus Elise weighs 1,931 lbs. making it 401 lbs lighter than the MX-5. Then again, the Elise doesn’t come standard with air-conditioning, while we’re betting that the MX-5 will. With its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 134 hp, at least the 2016 MX-5 is more powerful than the European coupe.
