The new Mazda MX-5 is here, complete with Mazda’s KODO design theme and some weight reduction.
Mazda claims that the new soft-top MX-5 weighs 100kg less than the outgoing MX-5 – meaning it weighs approximately 1-tonne. The fourth-generation MX-5 is equipped with SKYACTIV technology, which includes SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and the first adaptation of SKYACTIV-Chassis on a rear-wheel drive Mazda.
In 25 years of production, Mazda have made 947,000 MX-5s. Mazda haven’t released any information on engine and performance specification, nor have they given any details on pricing and market launch dates, but more information should be soon available when production car development has been finalized.
