Since its launch, the Mazda MX-5 has become the world's best-selling two-seater sports car, and it is available from FRF Mazda. Available in two basic models, the Soft Top and the Roadster Coupé, the Mazda MX-5 demonstrates outstanding driving dynamics and agility, and its popularity has been universally tried and tested.
Inspired by the Japanese notion of a “horse and rider as one" - Jinba Ittai – the car fosters a special relationship with its driver.
From the outside, the sleek body styling, large alloy wheels, low centre of gravity and dual exhausts convey an unmistakable message of power and speed.
On the inside, the sports seats, chunky centre console and leather, multifunction steering wheel all add to that feeling of being in the cockpit of a racing car.
The Soft Top comes with a choice of five equipment grades, the MX-5 SE, the MX-5 Sport Tech, the MX-5 Sport Tech Nav, the Kuro and the Venture. The Roadster Coupé adds a sixth grade, the MX-5 Powershift. Depending upon the Soft Top model chosen, the car will either have a 1.8-litre 125bhp petrol engine or a 2.0-litre 158bhp power unit.
The latter, fitted to the Sport Tech and Sport Tech Nav will propel the car from 0-60mph in a fraction under 7.6 seconds. With the entry-level SE, a combined fuel efficiency of 39.8mpg can be achieved and the cars come with either five-speed or six-speed manual transmission units.
The Roadster Coupé uses the same engines but the MX-5 Powershift offers the unique option of a six-speed automatic transmission.
Climate control air conditioning is included as standard, with remote central locking being fitted to most models. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS) is standard, as is Mazda's Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (MAIDAS).
Front and side airbags protect the driver and passenger when activated.
