Mazda_MX-5_rearAn updated Mazda MX-5 will go on sale in Australia in early 2020. However changes are relatively minor, with an emphasis on the interior.

There are revisions to interior materials with RF GT models getting Burgundy Nappa leather punctuated with a light grey stitch to create a more luxurious cabin atmosphere. Across other parts of the range, both Tan and Black leather options have also been revised, adding perforations that give a sporty texture and boost to comfort. The GT range also gets stainless steel scuff plates to minimise damage during entry and egress.

The biggest external difference is revision of body colours. There’s a new Polymetal Grey Metallic we first saw on the Next-Gen Mazda3 hatch

All model grades have a new-look key fob and Mazda badging.

The updated Mazda MX-5 is available in Roadster (Soft Top) and RF (Retractable Hard Top) body styles, equipped with a SkyActiv-G 1.5 or SkyActiv-G 2.0 petrol engine, paired with a choice of six-speed SkyActiv-MT manual or six-speed automatic transmission.


Entering its 31st year of production, the Mazda MX-5 can be credited by being the car that revived the open top sports car. Prior to the Japanese designers and engineers coming up with crash safety that worked there had been the feeling that open cars would be a thing of the past.
