More Magic from Mazda MX-5

More Magic from Mazda MX-5

The iconic Mazda MX-5 is being upgraded with a number of new stylish features and we’ve got one coming in December (which we’re quite excited about).

Mazda New Zealand Managing Director, Andrew Clearwater says, “The Mazda team have been careful not to change the cars’ DNA that has impressed so many kiwi motorists since the MX-5 was first launched in New Zealand 23 years ago.”

“Its popularity here and abroad has resulted in the MX-5 securing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for becoming the best-selling two-seater sports car in the world.”

“The changes we have made will make the driving experience even more enjoyable. New Zealanders love to put the top down for the great kiwi road trip and there’s no better car to experience it in than the MX-5,” says Clearwater.

The soft-top, with glass rear windscreen, remains one of the easiest opening and closing convertible roofs. The electric folding hard-top on the coupe takes only 12 seconds to open or close and continues to be one of the fastest in the market. In addition, the roof retracts into a separate area so it does not encroach on any boot space.

From September the MX-5 will see some functional design alterations, which include the reshaping of the front bumper, changes to the fog lamps and bezel surrounds along with a redesigned front grill.

A new exterior colour is added to the range with Dolphin Grey replacing the Metropolitan Grey of the previous MX-5 models. The facelift continues through to the luxury interior which has had a glossy dark grey garnish applied to the dashboard decoration panel, steering wheel and shift lever.

Mechanical upgrades have also been made to the MX-5 six speed manual models which have been fitted with a sportier throttle tuning. The upgrade will deliver more power and smoother handling. Retractable hard top owners will see upgraded dark gun metallic wheels, black headlamp bezel and a glossy dark grey garnish applied to the roll bars.

The new look MX-5 will be available in New Zealand in October 2012.
