A few people can’t run themselves, and this move is a bit odd. Although we’d be reluctant to admit it to the enthusiast community, it is, in fact, paired well with the car’s 181 horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder motor.

However, despite the paddle shifters, the auto takes away some of the pleasure of operating this vehicle.

A Miata without the clutch pedal is just like Hawaii without the word “aloha,” the Reese’s with peanut butter without and Woody Without Buzz Lightyear. It’s just not right.

Technology based on brakes improves stability near the limits of Miata’s capabilities.

Mazda has also added an innovative handling system in Mazda’s 2022 MX-5 Miata.

Kinematic Posture Control (KPC)

Kinematic Posture Control (KPC) is not in any way to be concerned with the position you are in behind the wheel, and is all about increasing the quality of what Mazda describes as “high-g cornering accuracy and assurance.” This means it improves the vehicle’s position on the road.

As Mazda says, when a driver is able to pitch the MX-5 Miata hard into a corner or curve, KPC will add subtle brakes to the rear wheel.

This reduces body roll and, as such, Mazda claims makes the steering feel more precise and natural.

After you’ve clipped the apex and your left foot is placed on the accelerator pedal, Mazda uses slightly stronger rear-wheel braking in order to create what they claim is the effect of a limited-slip.
