The Mazda MX-5 (NC) (also known as Mazda Miata (NC)) is the third generation model of the Mazda MX-5, which replaced the previous NB series in 2005. In 2009, the NC series MX-5 was redesigned.

Larger fenders and an increased wheelbase differentiate the car from its predecessors. It has either a 1.8L or 2.0L MZR inline-four engine, which has replaced the 1.8L BP inline-four engine series used by the NA and NB generation.

Need for Speed: Shift

The MX-5 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 1 car, costing $21,000. It possesses a car rating of 2.15 and is incapable of a Works conversion.

The low weight is beneficial to its handling, which can be useful for tight and difficult corners. Unlike other rear-wheel drive cars, it rarely oversteers and is therefore a good choice for a starter car.

However, due to a less powerful engine than other cars, it may be outperformed by its rivals in terms of acceleration. Because of that, it is best used in race courses with a high number of difficult corners.

Need for Speed: World

The MX-5 was made available in Need for Speed: World on August 9, 2011 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a D class car.

It is a decent class D car, as it is capable of high-speed cornering, because of its light weight. Players can exit corners at a higher speed than with similar cars such as the Lexus IS 350.

It shows weaknesses in terms of acceleration and nitrous boost, but these traits make it suitable for difficult race courses instead of tracks with many long straight roads, although its power and handling can be noticeably improved with Race series performance parts or better.
