The hotly anticipated all-new Mazda MX-5 is better than ever and is sure to reinforce its status as the world's best-selling two-seater sportscar. Here's what you can look forward to from this exceptional machine.
Previous iterations of the Mazda MX-5 followed a driver-focused ethos that helped the car to deliver endless thrills. The latest generation is no different and is offered with a choice of two powerful and refined petrol engines. Engineered to incorporate Mazda's award-winning SKYACTIV Technology, the 1.5-litre 130ps and 2.0-litre 160ps units deliver exceptional performance and economy all at once. Six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels, and with a perfect 50:50 weight distribution the ride is stable and the handling sharp at high speeds.
Advanced technology is also found inside the cabin to heighten the experience for you and your passenger. From the SE-L trim you access Mazda's MZD-Connect connectivity and infotainment system with a 7-inch colour touchscreen and Multimedia Commander. The model also features a DAB radio, climate control air-conditioning and Bluetooth® interface for optimum comfort and engagement.
Across the range there's an abundance of cutting-edge safety technology to protect you and other road users. Blind Spot Monitoring scans your blind spot when changing lanes and warns you if a vehicle is approaching. Meanwhile, High Beam Control (HBC) automatically switches between high and low beams depending on traffic conditions to help you see clearly and not dazzle other road users.
The sports car has evolved to incorporate Mazda's award-winning KODO: Soul of Motion design language and refresh its visual appeal. A strong presence is complemented by striking LED headlights, while flowing body panels also create a sense of elegance. There are seven colour choices, including Crystal White pearlescent and Soul Red metallic.
The all-new Mazda MX-5 is available now starting from £18,495 on-the-road (OTR).
