Refreshed Mazda MX-5 sees minor price rises…
The refreshed Mazda MX-5 has copped tweaks to the design, dynamics, and NVH across both the soft-top and RF variants.
THE REFRESHED MAZDA MX-5 might be a case of blink and you’ll miss the updates, but in this first update since the fourth-generation MX-5 was introduced in 2015, Mazda tweaked the rear suspension via lowering the upper link bushings and lengthening the bump stops.
And, while Mazda has often claimed its vehicles don’t have an NVH issue, it’s constantly adding more sound deadening, with the refreshed MX-5 getting more insulation stuffed into the centre tunnel, the dash, “holes and gaps around the tunnel reinforcement were reduced” and more insulation in the rear wheel arches.
The MX-5 will also add key safety features, including lane departure warning and adaptive headlights. There are new colours available too.
Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said, “The MX-5 carries a promise of fun, and the upgraded fourth generation model certainly upholds this.
“The enhancements and added equipment are another phase in its constant evolution, which is testament to Mazda’s endless pursuit of achieving driving pleasure.”
There have been some minor price changes across the range, spanning a couple of hundred dollars through to $1320.00 in the RF GT. The updated MX-5 is on-sale now.
