How do you get good sound quality in a convertible?
There’s no denying that a ride in a convertible — a Mazda MX-5 Miata, no less — is a fun time. But one question that’s often on the mind of those who design, shop for, and own convertibles is how to keep the tunes in play once you’re out on the open road, with no barrier to separate you from all the noises — the buzzing traffic, the whipping wind… Certainly technology has come up with plenty of ways to answer the question, “How do you get good sound quality in a convertible?” but maybe none as thoroughly as this brand new sound system by Bose for the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster.

As more and more hype builds up around the driverless car discussion and development of technologies that would potentially eliminate at least some of the need for human-operated vehicles, Mazda’s taking the discussion in a bit of a different direction with its latest campaign, kicking off this month. The idea: Driving matters. More than just a necessity for transportation, driving is a meaningful activity for many people. Maybe not for everyone, that there are some that will certainly embrace the driverless car phenomenon with open arms, but there are many drivers out there who truly love their time on the road. For those people, the 2016 Mazda Miata Driving Matters commercial will probably hit home.
