Forza Motorsport 6: The new Roadster

The all-new, fourth-generation, Mazda Roadster or MX-5 is one of the must-have cars of 2015 and here we are, in the world of Forza, got to try out the latest Roadster in one of the world's finest race tracks just for the fun of it.

Here in Forza Motorsport 6, players can get to know more about the latest version of the Mazda Roadster/MX-5 not just by observing every detail inside and out but also getting to know how its newly-found dynamics work in the racetracks, be it dry, wet, or dark. Once again, we are driving the fourth-generation Roadster, in-game, powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine that the Japanese market never had at launch. Looks like the Japanese Forza fans will wistfully listen to its SKYACTIV-G 2.0L engine sound via ForzaVista because this engine is not available for the new Roadster up to know. Only the world market had the chance to drive it because that's what it came from Mazda's dossier.

Be that in mind that even though this is a 2.0L engine, it's still reasonably small, and thanks to SKYACTIV-CHASSIS and SKYACTIV-BODY applied to this new Roadster, it still retains the classic Roadster formula, valuing aerodynamics over performance, as well as delivering its nimble and yet accessible dynamics everyone can master. Enjoy this car as much as you want because the new Roadster is still one of the most enjoyable cars to drive in Forza Motorsport 6.

Speaking of enjoyable, since this is Forza Motorsport 6, I decided to give this new Roadster a Top Gear Power Lap round the Top Gear Test Track. See if how much fun this new Roadster can do...

So, how's the new Roadster at the track? Well, it did set a lap time of 1:36.792. Not the fastest it has ever done but this track demonstrated how good the new Roadster is and I am very happy to taste one of Mazda's latest masterpieces. Ah the joys of driving the Mazda with SKYACTIV Technology in-game...
