A new, upgraded version of the Mazda MX-5 is now rolling off the assembly line in Hiroshima, Japan and will go on sale in the UK later this year. The upgraded MX-5 has enhanced safety features and refined driving attributes, together with exterior and interior improvements.
Exterior changes include a new, more aggressive front bumper design that also improves aerodynamic performance, and the availability of a striking new Dolphin Grey Mica paint finish.
This model introduces Mazda’s new ‘active bonnet’ pedestrian protection system which automatically raises the trailing edge of the bonnet if a pedestrian impact is detected. This action provides immediate space under the bonnet to absorb impact energy and soften the blow. Complementing the new bonnet, the new front bumper design also enhances pedestrian leg protection.
