For more than 25 years, the Mazda MX-5 has been a worldwide icon, not only in the lightweight sports car category, but also for Mazda’s unique Jinba-ittai philosophy of ultimate driving pleasure. In developing the all-new fourth generation MX-5, Mazda adopted an innovative stance aimed at maintaining and enhancing the MX-5’s sheer driving pleasure while meeting the highest standard of fuel efficiency and safety.
One glance and the pulse begins to race.
The cockpit immediately tells you all you need to know: that this is the essence of pure driving joy. Body panels wrap over into the door trim, dissolving the boundaries of the interior and exterior, heightening the pleasure of open-top driving. All interior details are tailored to appeal to sports-car enthusiasts in look, function and operating feel. Grip the steering wheel, let your hand fall naturally to the gear shift lever and reach for the engine start button – it’s a ritual that always sets the heart racing.
The high-efﬁciency SKYACTIV-G 2.0 direct-injection petrol engine is your passport to a world of driving that is both exciting and eco-friendly.
This six-speed automatic transmission is engineered to provide a direct shift feel and superior fuel economy thanks to a new torque converter with wider slip control and lock-up range. Another newly adopted function is Drive Selection which allows switching between Normal and Sport/Manual drive modes for a sportier, more satisfying driving experience
At Mazda, we believe genuine safety can only be realized when driver awareness and control is maximized so that the risk of accidents is minimized.
BSM uses 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spots behind and to the side, and using a turn signal while BSM detects a vehicle triggers visual and audio warnings. RCTA uses the same sensors to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations.
HBC automatically switches between high and low beams to maximize the use of high beams and so enable drivers to quickly spot potential hazards on the road at night. A camera detects the presence of preceding or oncoming vehicles for auto switching, reducing or eliminating the burden of having to manually switch between high and low beams.
LDWS senses lane markings on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane, it issues an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs over a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver input such as use of the turn signals to weed out false alarms.
All grades feature front airbags as standard equipment for both seats. Side airbags with a head-protecting cell help safeguard occupants’ heads from injury inﬂicted by walls or poles in a collision, even when the top is down.
Features that empower you.
The large analogue tachometer and speedometer feature needles with a vertical zero position to emphasize the contrast between action and inaction, suggesting the image of a Japanese sword master poised to strike.
The exclusive Bose® premium sound system features nine speakers including a pair of speakers in both the driver’s and passenger’s headrests, to deliver superior sound quality even when driving with the top down.
Comprehensive airﬂow control measures minimize unpleasant drafts while guiding just a refreshing breeze to the occupant’s arms and chest to assure the full pleasure of driving with the top down.
