Mazda US to debut MX-5 Club edition at New York Auto Show
Ready to join the Club? The All-New Mazda MX-5 Club edition, that is.
Mazda North America will be introducing the North American-spec MX-5 Club next week at the New York International Auto Show. The MX-5 Club represents the most aggressive road-going iteration of Mazda’s fourth-generation flagship roadster available to the US public.
The All-New MX-5 sheds approximately 68 KG from its predecessor through use of lightweight, efficient SKYACTIV Technology, now weighing 1,057 KG when equipped with the standard SKYACTIV-MT 6-speed manual transmission (1,080 KG with the 6-speed automatic). Powering all North American models will be a 2.0-litre SKYACTIV engine, rated at 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque.
Shorter than the first-generation MX-5 that hit the world's roads in 1989, yet wider than the outgoing model and with its engine lower and farther back in its chassis, the All-New MX-5 is designed to deliver maximum driving enjoyment.
The MX-5 Club aims to amplify that experience, harking back to the early lightweight sports cars that inspired it, but serving as a beacon for the future as a thoroughly modern, sophisticated package.
