Mazda releases MX-5 Miyako special editions

The Mazda MX-5 has attracted its fair share of special editions, and the latest is the ‘Miyako’. Borrowing its name from the Japanese holiday island the new edition will go on sale in Britain from today.

As part of the year-long celebrations of 20 years of MX-5 production, the “summer special edition” Miyako is available in two forms, the 126HP 1.8i Miyako soft-top and the more powerful 160HP 2.0i Miyako roadster coupe with a folding hardtop.

So what makes the Miyako so special? Well it gets larger 17-inch alloy wheels, standard fog lamps and a front suspension strut brace for improved steering response. Both versions of the MX-5 Miyako will be available in Aluminium Silver Metallic, while the soft-top is also being built in Velocity Red Mica.

It is the first special edition that you can have in both ragtop and folding tin-top forms, with only 500 units available they may go quick. Prices start at £18,385 ($40,000 NZ).
