    The smile factor also speaks to the MX-5’s hallmark — the manner in which it has always handled. Nothing changes in this regard, as this version is every bit as buttoned down and agile as its predecessors even when pushed to the maximum. The reason the MX-5 handles so well is down to its low centre of gravity, the fact all the heavy stuff sits within the wheelbase, 50/50-front/rear weight balance and the suspension.

    Rather than taking the easy route and adopting struts Mazda picked a double wishbone design up front, multiple links at the back end, Bilstein shock absorbers and anti-roll bars at both ends. The end result is an terrific balance — there is no body roll to speak of and yet when the road gets rough it soaks things up in a commendable fashion.

    The other bit of good news is that the new body has absolutely no cowl shake — an unnerving sensation that makes it feel as though the steering wheel moves. This simple trait serves to inspire driver confidence, as does the fact it feels as though the car pivots around the driver’s posterior, which brings firsthand car-to-driver communication. Just point the MX-5 at a corner and it romps through leaving the driver feeling like an accomplished racer.

    The fourth-generation MX-5 has absolutely lost none of its magic. In fact, it sets an already high bar much higher. It has ample power, it handles like a proverbial go-kart and it has taken significant steps forward in terms of refinement. In short, the MX-5 Miata remains, especially the GS model, one of the most rewarding convertibles money can buy.
