Kinematic Posture Control

kinematic posture controlKinematic Posture Control, another engineering update for 2022, will further the Miata’s reputation as a fun-to-drive vehicle. According to Mazda, KPC is a brake-based technology that helps lessen body roll, boost steering responsiveness, and improve the performance of the vehicle’s available limited-slip differential. Simply explained, KPC lightly brakes the car’s inner rear wheel while cornering at a high speed to pull the vehicle down.

2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible Trim Levels

A compact two-seat convertible roadster, the 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata comes in three model levels: Sport, Club, and Grand Touring.

The 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, also has a retractable hardtop. Mazda keeps the RF simple. The sports vehicle has two doors and two seats, and it comes in Club and Grand Touring trim levels. Each has a power-folding roof that can be opened in 13 seconds and looks like a hardtop coupe when it is closed.

Engine and Drivetrain

Rear-wheel drive is standard on all MX-5 Miata models, and the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine cranks out an impressive 181 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.


For 2022, the MX-5 Miata Sport and Club versions come only with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the Grand Touring model may be had with either the manual transmission or a quick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
