Fast Facts:
  • The NB Miata was built from 1999 to 2005, replacing the NA Miata. The NB is the first Miata to clock a 0-60 time under 8 seconds by Car and Driver
  • While the NB is physically larger, Mazda claims only a 6 lb difference in curb weight between the ’97 NA model (2293lbs, 5spd) and the ’99 NB model (2299, 5spd). Weight was kept down thanks to things like discarding the pop-up headlights (12 lb savings) and giving the NB a lighter convertible top (which came with a glass window vs a plastic one on the NA). However, it is easier to add weight to an NB thanks to heavier options, such as bigger wheels, bigger brakes, optional 6spd trans, etc
  • Drag coefficient drops to 0.36 on the NB (vs 0.39 NA). The aerodynamic shape of the car reduces lift in the front while increasing it at the rear – this means both ends of the car now have more equal tire loading as speed increases, resulting in handling that is less effected by vehicle speed
  • A 6spd manual is available for the first time, albeit only on the Anniversary model and the SE. A 5spd manual is standard
  • The 6spd trans weighs ~8lbs more than the 5spd, and offers less of a drop in RPM between shifts than in the 5spd thanks to more tightly spaced ratios (both have near identical top gear ratios). 6spd cars have a 3.91:1 vs 4.3:1 on the 5spd. The 6spd can cruise at 60 MPH @ 3000 RPM vs 3200 RPM with the 5spd

Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the NB Miata (replacing the first generation Miata (NA)
  • The 1.8 engine now produces 140hp (up from 133hp) thanks to a new cylinder head. Torque is up slightly as well
  • There was no ’98 model in the U.S
  • First year of the optional 6spd manual
  • Notable changes don’t occur until 2001, when power is boosted to 155hp thanks to variable valve timing
