The Mazda MX-5 gets another update (and an electric successor)

We were a bit shocked when we wrote this post about the Mazda MX-5, because we didn’t realize it was the current generation On the market for almost nine years (!). He is.

Let’s just say that the Mazda MX-5 ND, as the fourth generation is called, still looks young. That’s why Mazda decided not to do much in terms of appearance.

The Mazda MX-5 has been slightly improved

The facelifted MX-5 is barely recognizable as such. The design of the headlights has been slightly changed by the designers and 3D effect lighting units have been installed at the rear.

Officially, the changes only apply to the Japanese version of the MX-5, but it won’t be long until the European version is improved as well.

The interior is brown and the convertible top is beige

It’s a bit of a shame that the grille now has a black plastic piece on the left side (visible from the cockpit). Behind it is the radar sensor of the new adaptive cruise control system with emergency braking function.

Mazda also offers an additional body color (Aero Grey), some other alloy wheels can be ordered and buyers can choose an interior with brown upholstery. The beige hood is also new.

It is noteworthy that Mazda keeps the dials behind the steering wheel in a similar manner. However, the MX-5 will soon be launched with a larger 8.8-inch multimedia screen and a faster infotainment system.

Starter motor with 4 extra horsepower

Are there any changes being made under the hood? naturally. The entry-level engine, the 1.5, gains 4bhp and now produces 136bhp. Nothing changes about the 2.0 liter. Still good for 184 hp.

Mazda has also tweaked the steering and given all manual-transmission MX-5s a limited-slip differential and a DSC Track mode, where the stability control allows for more.

Mazda MX-5 electric?

By the way, the current MX-5 should still last a while. Its successor is said to not come to the market until 2026. It is known that it will be “electrified”, and it seems logical that it will have an EV drive.
