Mazda Australia and Japan recently announced the debut of the upcoming 2024 Mazda Miata.
The car will have substantial upgrades over its predecessor. It is not sure that these upgrades will come to the United States model if the car makes its presence felt in the market. The most significant changes include a revised asymmetric limited slip differential and a DSC Track driving mode although these features will apply to only models with a manual six-speed transmission.
