New Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 roadster is the latest generation of the world's best-selling sports car with smart SKYACTIV technology and stunning 'KODO – Soul of Motion' design.

The Mazda MX-5 2.0 SE-L Nav won Best Convertible 2018 at the annual What Car? Awards – a title it has now won for the second year in succession. Auto Express also named the Mazda MX-5 Roadster of the Year for the fourth consecutive year in 2018 (although it was the MX-5 RF that won in 2017).

The MX-5's rear-wheel drive, sports suspension, 50:50 weight distribution, superior power-to-weight ratio, and a low centre of gravity and lighter body (it's over 100kg lighter than the third-generation model) makes for even more responsive handling for a fun and exciting driving experience. SKYACTIV technology means you get an ultra-efficient engine, a tough but lightweight chassis and terrific performance, while the latest i-ACTIVSENSE active safety systems and an infotainment package including the MZD Connect smartphone system will keep everyone safe and sound on their journey.

Available with a 1.5-litre 131PS or 2.0-litre 160PS petrol engine, there is a choice of nine different models and five trim levels. Essex Mazda’s product specialists can give you more details on the new convertible’s sophisticated combination of excellent design, connectivity, driveability and efficiency that makes it a real crowd-pleaser.

Owners will appreciate the thrilling driving dynamics, improved comfort and standard features such as alloy wheels, LED headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a lightweight and sleek fabric hood.

SE-L models add LED daytime running lights, climate control air-conditioning, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth® and cruise control, plus the MZD-Connect connectivity and infotainment system with 7-inch colour touchscreen display and Multimedia Commander.

Those specifying the range-topping 160PS Sport model will benefit from additional features, such as a Premium Bose sound system, rear parking sensors, heated leather seat trim, and sports suspension featuring Bilstein dampers.
